I really like these shoes. They were comfortable from the first time I put them on. I normally wear a size 7, but my experience with other Merrell barefoot shoes told me to order a 7 1/2 and they fit perfectly. These shoes are lightweight, breathable, and flexible. I plan to run in them although I haven't done that yet - I want to get used to wearing them first. They look great with jeans, so wearing them a lot isn't a problem :-)

Awesome running shoe
I have only ever run in Asics, but I wanted something a little lighter. I decided to try the Merrell Women's Lithe Glove Barefoot Running Shoe and I am very happy. I usually run 3 miles 4 - 5 times per week and they have been comfortable from the very first run. They are very true to size; from the arch back to the heel they are very snug and the toe box is very roomy. Exactly what I was looking for!!!

LOVE these shoes (and they are cute too)!!
I needed a new pair of running shoes and while I have been curious about barefoot running, I did not like some of the options available to me, that is until I found these shoes!! I could not WAIT until they came to test them out and when I opened the box, I fell in love with them even more because they were cute too. I run 5 miles every other day and they felt comfortable from day 1. The sole of the shoe was also thicker than I would have thought for a barefoot shoe. I also really like that you can just throw them in the washing machine with your other clothes, hang them up to dry and they are ready to go the very next day. I'm now thinking of purchasing the mary janes just to wear out and about. Merrell, great job as usual!!

even better after a break in
When I tried these on I was on the fence about them. I was wearing VFF Sprint's and I felt more barefoot in them. I decided I needed the Merrills for the winter and that I would sacrifice a bit of ground feel for warmth and a little water resistance. Well after wearing them for several weeks I love them, the break in period really improved the feel of them and overall they seem well made. Highly recommended.

Great, comfortable shoes
This shoe runs true to size for me, unlike the Pace Glove. The lacing system provides good snug support for the midfoot while the toebox gives your tootsies plenty of wiggle room. I've done a couple short runs in them plus some long walks on both street and trail and they are super comfortable. Great quality, and stylish to boot.
