The upper of the Merrell Trail Glove 5 is a lightweight, breathable, mostly-mesh probiotic covering that provides a foot-hugging, anatomical fit, meanwhile the sidewalls offers good protection from rocks and other obstacles lurking on the trail. More important, the upper is stretchy throughout, especially at the front, allowing the toes and metatarsals to spread and engage, putting you on safer grounds when you’re running at any speed on twisty single-tracks, rugged mountains or crushed-gravel paths.

BSc Neurobiology; MSc Biomechanics candidate, ultra minimalist runner & founder of RunForefoot. I was a heel striker, always injured. I was inspired by the great Tirunesh Dibaba to try forefoot running. Now, I'm injury free. This is why I launched Run Forefoot, to advocate the health & performance benefits of forefoot running and to raise awareness on the dangers of heel striking, because the world needs to know.
