    Hi Folks,

    I have been playing basketball for a few years in minimal sneakers - Merrell Bare Access first and more recently my trusty old Merrell Road Gloves, but last night I went to put on my RGs and found that the sole had finally worn out on one foot.

    (As an aside, I ended up playing with one road glove and one bare access shoe because the soles had worn out on opposite feet on those two pairs. Nobody noticed this little bit of quirkiness, but I digress!)

    I'll need to buy a replacement, but I note that the road gloves don't exist anymore (shame, mine were fantastic and lasted for many years) and the bare access models look a bit chunkier than they used to. I guess the Merrell equivalent is now the vapor glove, but they look a little bit narrow in the forefoot on the Merrell site.

    Can anybody suggest a good option?

    Cheers,

    Larry
