Merrell Trail Glove 5 Eco Trail Running Shoes
With the goal to make a shoe as durable as possible with as much recycled content as possible, this trainer is designed to enhance the foot's natural ability to stabilize the body during rapid changes in movement.
Recycled Mesh Upper
Designed to keep your feet comfortable and ventilated the Merrell Trail Glove 5 Eco Trail Running Shoes have been constructed using a 30% recycled mesh upper. The mesh acts as a lightweight second skin to ensure you are able to go the distance in complete comfort. Perforations in the fabric encourage cool air to circulate, removing uncomfortable heat build-up to create a healthy environment for your foot to thrive in. As well as this, 60% recycled TPU overlays have been added to the upper to provide added structure and durability; the reinforcements promote a secure, supportive fit and increase the shoe durability by resisting the risks of wear and tear whilst 30% recycled breathable mesh insole sits comfortably against the skin and ensures added ventilation to keep your feet fresher for longer. The 100% recycled Hyperlock TPU Film heel counter provides a locked-in feel whilst the traditional 100% recycled lace-up system allows an adjustable fit for added security keeping your foot in place eliminating distraction slipping and rubbing.
Bloom Foam Midsole
The midsole uses bloom foam, a more sustainable answer to conventional flexible foams that still holds an abundance of cushioning qualities. BLOOM foam midsole is made from 10% algae biomass which cleans and restores the environment when harvested for a more eco-friendly alternative to standard foams. The foam midsole provides comfortable cushioning that offers extra protection against the uneven ground and minimises your discomfort at all times. By providing unprecedented stability, agility, and comfort, the midsole supports the natural motion of the foot and providing comfort through the gait cycle and reduces harmful shocks and impact forces so you can go further for longer.
Vibram EcoDura Outsole
Designed with Vibram EcoDura these shoes are designed to offer stability in all conditions whilst remaining eco-friendly. The rubber outsole is 30% recycled and works to keep you grounded on the toughest terrains. With no lugs under the arch, the Vibram outsole allows the foot to flex naturally for greater comfort. The advanced rubber compound provides traction on wet, and dry surfaces in even the most extreme temperatures ensuring you have confidant footing no matter where you chose to explore. Lastly, a Merrell Barefoot 2 construction enhances proprioception and stability during variable movements; the Merrell Bare Access XTR Ecp Trail Running Shoes offer a barefoot shape, with a glove-like fit, for a nearly zero ground to foot separation for a minimal look with maximum responsiveness.
The Trail Glove 5 is a barefoot shoe, and has been built with a full forefoot to allow for a more natural foot movement. When compared to the Trail Glove 4, it runs ½ size large. If you're looking for a similar fit to the previous version, we recommend you order a ½ size smaller than your typical size.
