Was Merrell listening when I wrote my piece on what I'd like to see changed in the Trail Glove? It would seem so, not so much that they've changed the Trail Glove, but they've introduced new models for next year that have addressed every issue I have with these great shoes.
First up is the Road Glove, which looks to have done away with the massive undercut at the 5th metatarsal, and filled in the area under the lateral arch. Goodness.
Next is the Edge Glove, which shares the above features with the Road Glove, but is a casual-oriented shoe (and would become my every-day shoe if it is available in black).
And the Rapid Glove looks like Merrell's answer to the Vibram Five Fingers, just without the individual toe pockets. Made as a water-sports shoe, this may become a favorite among those running in wet climates (uh... Seattle?).
Good news indeed.
Shoe lust all over again.
Jason... I'm jealous.
