I'm loving this shoe!,
Verified Purchase(What's this?)
This review is from: Merrell Women's Barefoot Pure Glove Trail Running Shoe (Apparel)
First of all, I hate buying shoes...I hate wearing shoes. If I could get away with being bare foot all day, I would but alas the no-shoe memo has already been buzzing around the work place. It's hard to believe with all the stilleto wearing gals in the building, I would be getting compliments from people - albeit probably just the granola eating, tree-hugging sorts. I'm thrilled with the color - very neutral and versatile. I've paired them with khakis, shorts and casual skirts. I've been told they look like ballerina slippers (by a girl) and ninja butt-kickers (by a guy).
Some reviews have complained about the velcro but I haven't had a problem with mis-alignment or discomfort because of it. They are extremely comfortable although I don't notice a whole lot of difference between these and regular shoes - my body may know on some level but perhaps because I walk around barefoot so often, I don't have to adjust as much (or perhaps there is no difference and I've been duped...cue the dramatic music).
I typically wear a size 9.5 shoe although my feet are closer to 9.25. I went to a store to try these on (they only had bright red and black) before and I was more comfortable in the 9.5 (some have suggested going smaller). They don't fit like a glove but are still pretty secure and I don't feel like I have to worry about my ankles turning as much - a major problem with sneakers higher off the ground - OUCH!!
Overall, I'm thrilled with the shoe and am so happy Merrell and Vibram made the non-5-toe version for us folks with "special" feet.
