Merrell Road Glove

Unless you've been living under a rock, you've probably heard about this whole "barefoot running thing." It's not just a craze. It's changing the way a lot of people run, and mostly for the better (though you do have to be very careful and work into it slowly). We've been testing minimalist running shoes all year, and the Merrell Road Gloves have been king since the spring. $105 http://www.amazon.com/Merrell-Glove-Barefoot-Running-Shoes/dp/B0058YA4Q8/ref=sr_1_cc_1?s=aps&ie=UTF8&qid=1352443612&sr=1-1-catcorr&keywords=merrell+road+glove
