Amazing but no durability Here’s the deal... This shoe is amazing. Great fit, super light, flexible, cool color schemes, but..... not durable at all. Slightly disappointing because previous models of this shoe that I have owned were put through the ringer and lasted me a very long time. These ones were honestly only ever really worn to the gym and a few runs here and there. About after 3-4 months you will start to see tearing in the mesh where the shoe is required to flex. Seems there are many more with this same issues but I will say that I contacted customer service and they rolled out the red carpet treatment to remedy my situation. Hope next model is made out of stronger material because I really love this shoe but I won’t spend that kind of money for something that can’t be expected to last as long as the current model. Product gets 3 stars only because the questionable durability. 5 star customer service though. Thanks Merrell

I wanted to love them I got a few miles in these shoes before I decided they were too narrow for my foot. Overall, the shoes were exactly what I wanted: light weight, great ground feel, zero support, zero drop. Like rubber slippers. Unfortunately, my toes couldn't spread at all which led to pain and cramping. If Merrell starts making this shoe in wide sizes, I will be one of the first in line for a pair.

Best of the barefoot line, but below the deign potential for the line No question, the Vapor Glove 3 is the best of the barefoot line, exemplifying the core virtues of the design concept. But still, it is a step down from some earlier design variations, the strongest of which have been abandoned. This is great example of wasting the true strengths of the barefoot line, going in the wrong direction. The barefoot line is great and original because of the ultra-lightweight 6 OZ design, the ultra-thin Vibram sole with minimalist stack height (6.5/6.5mm on the best designs, like the Men's Vapor Glove 3. There is nothing terribly wrong with this shoe, and I recommend it highly versus much else on the market, for its trademark barefoot-like comfort and feel. IT is a real shame because Merrell was on the road to perfection when they introduced the Barefoot Embark Glove Gore-Tex Shoes, and the earlier True Glove, and the faux leather Tough Glove, and the charcoal black Trail Glove 3. Combine the key design elements of all these shoes and you would have something really unique, let's call it the "Barefoot Anywhere." What's that? A barefoot design shoe that you could wear anywhere, in any conditions, for any purpose, and could take anywhere. Let's break the design concept down: First the basic barefoot design of the "glove" line gives you a shoe you can use for hiking, running, sports, walking. AND very importantly, since they are so lightweight and flexible they are WAY easier to pack when traveling than any other shoe. The Barefoot Gore-Tex line added the versatility of waterproofing, creating a shoe you can use rain or shine, even in the snow if you need to, and still keep your feet mostly dry. The faux leather Tough Glove offer a sophisticated but simple design you would wear almost anywhere, on the trail or at work, hiking a mountain range or walking the streets of a foreign capital. So combine all those elements in one shoe, and Merrell would create the Barefoot Anywhere, a shoe could you could take ANYWHERE in the world, and use in any weather, for almost any purpose, whether sports, social, cultural or professional. But instead of developing and combining the strengths of all these design elements into a truly versatile and unique shoe that actually could be anything and everything for everyone (like the iPhone) they have abandoned nearly all of these great design elements in the current line. With the respect to the aobve product, well, they have settled for making another nice minimalist trail running shoe. Yay. But the snazy pattern design actually limits the versatility, as does the lack of waterproofing. You can't wear these to work. You can't wear these to a hip social outing without looking like a doofus. You can't wear these in the rain or snow. Merrell is operating way under the true potential for this line of shoes. The key virtue of this line is comfortable versatility. They need to maximize and reconbine their past design strengths to create the Barefoot Anywhere.

My favorite fitness shoe, held back by its lack of durability This is hands down my favorite shoe for training. Very similar feel to vibram five finger KSO but with a much better look. Only thing I don’t like about it is it’s durability. It gets torn up way too fast. Don’t expect it to last you more than a year if you use it regularly. I think Merrell should look into making this with a durable fly knit material.
