The urge to go barefoot is strong in the young ones. Let their little feet run free in the Merrell Kid's Trail Glove Barefoot Shoes. These multi-purpose hiking shoes have breathable, vegan-friendly mesh uppers with a snug lacing system that wraps their feet in a glove-like fit. A thin midsole offers a little cushion that encourages a more natural stride and the footbed is treated with Aegis® antimicrobial solution to resist odor when they go sockless. A forefoot shock-absorption plate protects their feet from impacts. The Vibram sole is made specifically for Merrell for lightweight, flexible traction without the funky 5 fingers look. They'll love the slip-on comfort of the Merrell Trail Glove Barefoot Shoes for kids.

Better than Barefoot
April 13, 2012

My grandson has a problem with uncomfortable shoes. Mostly he just wears crocs, but these shoes worked for him. That alone is saying quite a bit. Plus they are good looking. Win, win.

Kid's trail glove barefoot shoe
December 06, 2011

Kids love them, they are very comfortable. They are not binding. They also look cool. They are easy for kids to put on themselves. The colors are very vivid and bright. Both girls and boys love them.

Pros: they are easy to put on

Great Shoes
August 15, 2012

My seven year old son loves these - they are so comfortable and look great! These are the second pair I have purchased. The soles wear out in about six months of hard play, so they wouldn't be able to be handed down/over to another child, but that's about as long as my kid stays in a size, so they work well for us. It would be great if Merrell would use a sole that lasted longer. Merrell usually continutally improves their products so maybe the next generation will be more durable.

Pros: comfortable, easy to put on/take off, stylish, can be worn with or without socks, Cons: soles are not durable
