    I've run in and rated the original Merrell Road Glove which were an excellent running show but Merrell has outdone themselves' with the Road Glove 2. This is a fantastic running shoe! Very comfortable. The sole of the shoe is more durable and flat, which I prefer. The insole is much improved over the prior version; it feels smooth, doesn't break down and continues to provide antimicrobial properties that reduce/eliminate foot odor (wish all their shoes had this feature). This is a key feature to me as I do not use socks so foot odor can build up quickly. There is a non-intrusive, protective toe band and the usual reflective strips for night time running. The shoe really wears well, I've got several hundred miles on my shoes and the sole has plenty of life left.

    On the road the shoe is perfect; lightweight, comfortable with just the right amount of feel and feedback. I have not had any injuries and my running has improved since buying these shoes. They fit well with a big toe box and good fit around the rear and mid-foot. I use two pairs and alternate them to let them dry out. These are zero drop shoes and runners need to take their time switching to a barefoot/minimalist running style. Overall, this is an exceptionally nice pair of low-cut barefoot running shoes. I highly recommend them for running or full-time wear.

    Great shoes. Perfect for exercising. I'm not a runner so I can't speak to that but they are great for the gym, especially leg day! Keeps foot flat on leg press and when doing lunges for better form! Read the size chart. I had to buy a full size smaller.

    Bought these to replace my Nike Free shoes; which is the only running shoe I've used since they were first launched by Nike. Decided to switch things up a bit since a large majority of companies now offer minimalist shoes. Did some research on Runners World and narrowed it down to Merrell (which won out over the Altra brand) based on performance reviews. Both RW and Amazon suggested ordering a half-size smaller than normal, and is dead-on accurate. I ordered an 11.5M and they fit perfectly compared to my 12's. Thank you to all those who wrote reviews acknowledging Merrell shoes normally run a half-size large. This shoe also fits more like a "B" in width than a "D". I have a narrow foot and this shoe fits much better than my "D" size Nikes. If you are truly a "D", this shoe will likely fit tighter than most around back portion of your foot.

    I've ran about 15 miles in these in the last three days and can feel the change-over in my lower calf muscles. These shoes are extremely comfortable (especially for those with high arches) and just wearing them makes you feel ready to sprint into action at a moments notice -- if you have low or medium arches you may not like the (non-removable) arch support in these shoes, so if possible, I recommend trying a pair locally before buying. I did put my Nike Free insoles in theses for a little extra cushioning after about the first five miles and like the feel better with than without. The "low-volume" insole adds just the right amount of cushioning without changing the zero-drop of the shoe.

    These shoes are not as flexible as a Nike Free, but I knew this before buying them, and only really notice it when running on inclines.

    These are great shoes. I started running a few months ago and needed to get some new running shoes. They have met my expectations (and maybe even exceeded).

    THIS IS A GREAT SHOE.

    WARNING: After reading the reviews I decided to get 1/2 size smaller than I regularly wear. (got 11 when I wear 11.5). The shoes fit fine but I could have even gone probably to a 10.5. I wear them with socks and they fit just fine. Get a smaller size than you normally wear.

    WARNING: If you haven't worn barefoot/minimalist shoes before (like me) you will come down with DELAYED ONSET MUSCLE SORENESS (google it). I ran 4 miles after getting them and couldn't walk properly for 2 days. You will exercise muscles you have not typically used before. It is necessary to ease into your workout.

    Great shoe.

    This is actually a very sad review (like, literally sad) as Merrell has discontinued their road glove line of shoes. Upon buying these and testing them on a long run, I was compelled to email Merrell and a) see if they had any remaining ones left for sale and b) to try and compel them to make Road Gloves again.

    It is that good of a minimal road running shoe. It has that slight bit of extra support I prefer to road minimalist shoes (as opposed to trail) and they feel great for long runs. My legs were sore after the run in that exact way they should be after running in minimalists.

    Once again, this is a sad review since it is almost impossible to find these anywhere, even on the all knowing internet. I think I may have bought the last pair of mens size 10s that were available online.

    I bought these as a Christmas gift for my son. He runs without any socks in his shoes and I had to get a size smaller than what he wears. He loves the shoe and says it is the best running shoe he has ever had. He told me they were the "perfect minimalist running shoe". I had already purchased two pair of the women's glove 2 running shoes for myself. They were recommended my podiatrist and I have to say that I am so happy with them. I can wear them without my arch supports and the pain that I had in my feet is much less. We love these shoes!
