Best barefoot shoe! - by , May 17, 2020
5/ 5 Stars
I first bought a pair of these TG4s not long after they first came out and was hooked immediately. After getting back into CrossFit and wearing my traditional style running shoes with a higher heel I found I had trouble with the Olympic weight lifting movements. I would end up taking off my shoes to workout in order to maintain better feel and balance. Then my sister recommended these shoes and once I tried them I’ve had a hard time wearing anything else. I now am wearing these or going barefoot, even over wearing flip flops that don’t have the barefoot feel. I also no longer have issues with plantar fasciitis after working out in these, including running and hiking or all day wear. I prefer these over the TG5s as the 4s have a better feel and fit with traditional laces vs. the elastic strap type laces on the 5s as they felt too loose and not as much like a sock feel that the 4s have. I went back and bought 2 more TG4s after trying the 5sI like them so much. Hopefully Merrill will make the next TG more like the 4s instead of changing it like they did in the 5s. I wish they made a flip flop sandal that just took the TG4 sole and turned it into a sandal. I found the Paciki wrap sandals for men but at this time nobody has common sizes in stock. Merrill, please continue to make these and the TG4 barefoot shoes and sandals!

My go to trail runners - by , May 13, 2020
5/ 5 Stars
I've racked up at least 100 trail miles over the past year in my TG-4's and they are holding up great. These were my first ever pair of barefoot style shoes and because of them i love running again. "Barefoot" is no doubt the way to go (pain free and efficient). Great durability and traction from the Vibram sole compound. Sturdy enough to give just the right amount of support and protection without taking away from the barefoot feel. Wrap around sock-like tongue is great (shouldn't have gotten rid of it in the TG-5). I have no complaints about this shoe. Excellent quality as expected from Merrell. You may want something that is a little more substantial than this as an option if you typically run overly muddy/rugged/un-kept terrain. For somewhat well kept and moderate trails this is my absolute favorite shoe.

I love this shoe- I‘ve ordered 2 pairs. Not only so comfortable but very durable too. They fit like a glove and look great.

bring back the trail glove 4 - by , Apr 16, 2020
5/ 5 Stars
I felt lucky to get the trail glove four, since the trail glove five is not acceptable to me. This is maybe my fifth #4 and I really like them. The five has a stiff, high arch. My hope is that a trail glove 6 might bring back the shoe I love.

Great shoe overall - by , Apr 14, 2020
4/ 5 Stars
I have been using Merrell Barefoots for years. I liked the previous models better, but these have performed well. I wear them daily to walk around, running, and lifting. I have had my current shoes for close to two years and they still work great. I would have given the 5th star but the sides began to fall apart sooner than expected. I think the newer models seem to fall apart faster than the early models.

It's Specifically perfect for all the needed features it has. - by , Apr 04, 2020
5/ 5 Stars
When I had fallen in love with minimalist shoes after trying "toe" shoes I instantly knew that I couldn't go back to my normal ridiculously large shoe but I needed something for everyday versatility, something the "toe" shoe clearly couldn't manage. So I had a friend suggest Merrel and he was already wearing the Trail Glove 4. When I looked through the catalog there were many great sportsy looks but few minimalist type that I could wear to work, out on the town, at the store, at the gym all in one. The Trail Glove 4 black option is the best shoe design in the whole catalog for everyday, all environments use and the brown is a close second. For a minimalist shoe it's feel is perfect, exactly what I expect for this type. I am on my 3rd pair as I wear them everyday and I plan on ordering them one after another for as long as they are available. Please keep these stocked for all time!

Strange tongue - by , Feb 25, 2020
3/ 5 Stars
This shoe is okay. I originally got them for running but the tongue makes the shoe fit strange and rub. I can wear them as around town shoes. I really like the gloves from Merrell (4pairs), but this tongue makes this shoe a miss.

Perfect Trail Running Shoe. - by , Feb 20, 2020
5/ 5 Stars
I bought these for a Spartan Race in Phoenix. They did exactly what I needed them to do. They gripped well on the trail and drained quickly after the water obstacles. Felt amazing to run in. Money well spent!! Shout out to Kat at the Merrell Outlet store in Phoenix. Thank you for making sure I had the right shoe for my race.

Very comfortable. - by , Feb 10, 2020
5/ 5 Stars
These are my first barefoot/minimalist shoes, and I can say that I'm pleasantly surprised at the fit and feel. I especially like the dimensions of the toe box. I've struggled to find athletic shoes that didn't cramp my foot, without being too wide and sloppy. These are the best fit I've found. I'll likely buy another pair, just so I have a "spare", and can rotate these, extending their life. Great for kettlebell training.
