First off Amazon asked if it provides good arch support. I answered no. Read the end of my review for an explanation.
Review: I first ordered a size 10, the same size as the Merrell Trail Glove 2 ( I own 6 pair of that model and love the fit). I run in the Trail Gove 2 on the street, semi-paved roads and treadmill. I wear the Trail Glove 2 as a walking shoe and an all-day work shoe too. I have previously purchased the Vapor Glove for my wife for her indoor exercise on mats and floor doing weights and kick-boxing. I finally broke down and got myself some for running, walking, standing and indoor exercise.
What a disappointment when the same size I wear in all six pair of Trail Glove 2 turned out to be huge clown shoes in the Vapor Glove. I understand they are supposed to be roomy in the toe box to let the toes splay out when running but this just went beyond roomy and the length was very noticeably longer.
I then got a size 9.5 and the fit was much...
The original Vapor Glove was, and still is, a benchmark of excellence for minimalist shoes upon its release.
The original vapor glove was lightweight, very flexible, provided a fantastic amount of ground feel, and had excellent traction with its vibram TC-1 sole.
Thankfully, Merrell has decided to continue supporting its M-Connect shoes with a new iteration of the vapor glove, which is familiar, but still improves upon the original in many ways.
The sole is largely the same, the weight is the same, and the stack height is also unchanged, but Merrell has overhauled the uppers with a slightly more flexible material that feels better than the scratchier uppers in the original.
In addition, Merrell reinforced the inside and outside edges around the big and little toe with a painted on PU material for extra durability. These were the areas most likely to tear in minimalist shoes and this reinforced section is a welcomed addition.
Well, they were nice while they lasted. 3 months of minimal wear and they are already falling apart. Holes everywhere (and yes they are the right fit and size and what-not). Just blows my mind that I spent this kind of money for a shoe that couldn't last three months. I didn't even wear them every day, maybe 3 days a week at most. Save your money and buy something better.
The photo I attached only shows one of the holes, these shoes are riddled with holes.
