Fit and Feel

Created by studying the foot in motion, this minimalist trainer is designed to enhance the foot’s natural ability to stabilize the body during rapid changes in movement.

This shoe features a wide toe box, to enable natural and unrestricted movement of the toes, and a zero drop heel, meaning the heel of the shoe is at the same height as the ball of the foot, to promote proper posture.

A sizing note from Merrell:  

The Trail Glove 5 is a barefoot shoe, and has been built with a full forefoot to allow for a more natural foot movement. When compared to the Trail Glove 4, it is running ½ size large. If you're looking for a similar fit to our previous version, we recommend you order a ½ size smaller than your typical size.
