Why We Like The Vapor Glove 5 Trail Running Shoe

The fifth iteration of Merrel's Vapor series presents greater durability and an unrivaled fit. The Vapor Glove 5 provides that same barefoot feel as its predecessors, and the mesh upper boasts stronger abrasion-resistance. It also has a stretchy collar for a snug fit around our ankles. We like that Vibram rubber wraps over the edges ever so slightly to keep us sure-footed when technical terrain's keeping us on our toes.


  • Minimalist trail running shoe has a barely-there feel
  • 0mm drop encourages a natural stride from heel to toe
  • Mesh, TPU upper is light, breathable, and abrasion-resistant
  • EVA foam insole provides small amount of cushion
  • Flexible Vibram EcoDura rubber sole ensures solid traction
  • Partially recycled, vegan-friendly materials lessen your footprint
  • Item #MERZ2I5
