    So I looked at Merrell's website today, and they only have two types of "Barefoot" shoes listed. None of them are the minimal cushioned "glove" type shoes. What happened?! I'm going to call them tomorrow (after Christmas) and ask. I'm starting to become concerned, I almost wear the Trail Gloves exclusively for running these days, with a pair of NB Minimus (also not made the way I like anymore) sprinkled in.

    Turns out they'll be releasing a new model this spring.

    Anything more on this model? Did they say anything about what direction they are going in?

    No I didn't ask over the phone. I hope they don't go full new balance on them.

    It looks so i'm afraid. The gloves have been on and off their site for some time now i think.

    Too bad since the Vapor gloves are one of the best shoes that exists IMO. It got so much great feedback when they released it. Can't really find anything to update on it except for maybe a wide version.

    The Trail Glove 3 should be released next month. You can see them at www.runningwarehouse.com

    I thought I saw something about the next version of the Vapor Glove, but I could be mistaken.

    I'm looking at a printed version of their Spring 15 catalogue now and both the Trail glove and Vapor glove return for men (there are also shoes called the Bare Access Ultra, Bare Access Trail and Bare Access Arc 4 which are 0 drop and a new Mix Master which has a 4mm drop). For women there's a similar offering.

    DNEChris is correct. I also saw the Vapor Glove 2 available at Running Warehouse.

    I tried the Bare Access Ultra, but had to return them as the arch is too built up for me. I'll be sticking with the Trail Gloves.
