MerrellTrail Glove 4 Shoe - Men's

If the glove fits.

When taking an early morning trail run through the desert, you want a lightweight, breathable shoe that still offers protection against pieces of cholla and prickly pear that may be lurking in your path. Merrell's Men's Trail Glove 4 Shoe offers a barefoot feel that maintains rugged sole protection against the sharp surprises of the Southwest. Minimalist construction and a gloved fit make your feet feel practically barefoot as you weave your way through saguaros and creosote, but you'll be able to keep your eyes on the sunrise instead of the sharp rocks.

  • A barefoot shoe designed for trail running
  • Upper is lightweight and breathable for all-day adventures

The Vibram soles are amazingly grippy, protective, and responsive.
These fit really well. They contour to my foot with no hot spots whatsoever. The upper is durable, breathable and lightweight.

Hi Szabi! The sizing for these shoes on our site reflects US sizes.

I am a minimalist footwear fanatic. I train in either Vibram Five Fingers or Vivobarefoot Primus Trail depending on the routine. My 'post mid life crisis' passion is Spartan Race, and though I do have an actual trail shoe for races (Salomon S-Lab Sense) I needed a Stadium race shoe, and this looked like what I wanted (not as minimalist as my training shoes but still plenty of ground feel). These are exactly what I wanted for that purpose.

These shoes are amazing so far, they fit great and feel like you are basically running barefoot. The sole is super grippy and give a good amount of cushion.

I bought these as an all around running/training shoe. And so far, I'm loving them. They fit just life a glove and allow me to feel every thing below my feet. The tread is great, haven't slipped and ever step is stable. Highly recommend for those looking for a minimalist running shoe.
