Merrell Trail Glove 5 Review for Forefoot Running

Merrell Trail Glove 5 Review for Forefoot Running

The Merrell Trail Glove 5 minimalist trail running shoes are propped up on a zero-drop, 3-mm thin, toothy rubber Vibram outsole that has multi-directional flex cuts and indented grooves, providing further flexibility. It also has long-lasting durabilty, making the shoe an excellent choice for heavy mileage on a range of technical surfaces such as root-littered, twisty single-trails, rugged mountains, crushed-gravel paths and hard-packed to dusty dirt grounds.

"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.
