These are incredibly comfortable shoes. Very durable soles. You do feel like you are barefoot, but these shoes do offer support . Have only had them for a few weeks , but so far can't find anything wrong with them.

Fantasic shoes. Run true to size or a little small so if you are borderline I would recommend you move up to next larger. (I purchased too small and ended up exchanging which was very easy. Great customer service.) They conform to your feet and they are super light and comfortable - about as close to going barefoot as you can get while having some protection and support. One issue is because they conform so wear you just can't slip them off as easy as you would do with regular sneakers. I usually have to undo the laces and pull them off. Not an issue due to how comfortable there are though. INstead of taking them off when you get home you might end up leaving them on since they are like a secone skin :)

The shoes are a great investment. They are just like barefoot shoes. They have helped alleviate any aches and pains I have had. I was sore for the first few days wearing these, so break them easy. The back of the shoe does rub a little at first. Otherwise the most comfortable pair of shoes I own.

Tougher than tough glove
I have both the Tough glove and the True glove. The True glove feels much more rugged than the Tough glove. I think this shoe will last much longer on trails. Same great barefoot feel as the Tough glove, though. I ended up sizing both a half size bigger than my street shoe and they fit perfect. Shoes even feels good without socks.

I have been barefoot running and running with VFFs for about a year now, and was excited to hear about Merrell's entry in the market. I took delivery of the True Gloves about a week ago. After putting the shoes on, I noticed the shoes give extra support on the "balls" of my feet compared to my VFFs. I do about 15 "barefoot" miles a week; last week I ran 7.5 in the True Gloves and have been impressed so far. If I had one suggestion to make the shoes better it would be the shoe laces could be a little longer.
