I remember looking at my toes and thinking that I looked stupid. This was years ago. I had just started exploring the world of minimal running shoes and had bought a pair of Vibram five fingers. I loved how they felt, but didn't want to wear them anywhere because they were dumb looking. When Merrell introduced the Trail Glove I was psyched! Now I could have a barefoot type shoe and not look like a tool. But what really blew me away about that shoe was the fit. I had never experienced a shoe that so matched my foot. It felt like somebody simply put a Vibram sole on my foot. I ran many miles in those shoes and still have them to this day.
