Merrell Trail Glove 5 Review for Forefoot Running

Merrell Trail Glove 5 Review for Forefoot Running

The Merrell Trail Glove 5 sits on a 3 mm thin, yet beastly Vibram rubber outsole equipped with an array of toothy, multi-flex cut tread and intended grooves for enhanced flexibility, allowing the foot to move in its natural motion. At the same time, the underfoot is also armored with a TrailProtect™ rock plate that admirably provides excellent protection against stone bruising and contributes to a smooth, responsive ride when racing on harsh off-road surfaces.

"I believe the forefoot strike is the engine of endurance running..."

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.
