Shoes have undergone a transformation in the last few years from thick and supportive to thin and ideal for training foot muscles, and the Merrell Vapor Glove shoe is more for the latter with a design that is so thin it's skin-like.

Flexible and meant to be worn barefoot, the Merrell Vapor Glove shoe is similar in function to the Vibram FiveFingers shoes, but offer a more traditional silhouette that frankly isn't as goofy. Cited by the company as a completely different type of shoe, the Merrell Vapor Glove requires training because of the minute level of padding that is built into the sole. This feature is to increase the barefoot-like experience and let hikers who are looking to brave the outdoors in a more naturalistic means do so without worries.
