The entire upper of the Merrell Trail Glove 5 twists and flexes freely and adapts with the natural movements of the foot, especially when making quick changes in direction and sharp decents. Not to mention, the shoe is wide-foot-friendly because the upper is anatomically-shaped to resassuringly provide a comfortable, natural fit, without any pressure points regardless of foot shape.

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.
