- The Merrell Vapor Glove 3 Cotton is a minimalist trail-specific running shoe that is designed for barefoot-style running. This running gear is vegan-friendly and has antimicrobial agents that help reduce shoe odor.
- This “cotton” special edition of the third version of Merrell Vapor Glove uses the Hyperlock™ molded TPU heel counter for added security. This material locks the heel down during sharp turns and quick movements.
- The shoe also features a new rubber compound called Vibram TC5+. This rubber outsole provides better traction on varied surfaces. It is also lighter and more flexible compared to other outsole materials.
The Merrell Vapor Glove 3 Cotton’s flexible upper offers a sock-like fit, providing a comfortable in-shoe feel. This running companion is available in standard shoe sizes for both men and women versions. It can accommodate the usual choices of runners when it comes to size, though it should be noted that some reviewers felt that the shoe is a bit narrow.
The Vapor Glove 3 Cotton’s Barefoot construction is minimal yet highly protective for versatility outside. The shoe utilizes the Vibram TC5+ rubber outsole, Merrel’s exclusive technology, which ensures safety on both sloping and level grounds.
The TC5+ rubber is combined with front lugs that are strategically arranged to provide better traction even on irregular surfaces.
The Trail Protect™ technology is a rock plate that is placed between the outsole and midsole for added protection against rugged terrain. This technology is also present in Merrell Trail Glove 5.
The Merrell Vapor Glove 3 Cotton features the M Select™ FRESH antimicrobial agents that effectively prevents moisture and sweat, causing unwanted shoe odor. The M Select™ FRESH footframe is designed to conform to the natural flex of the foot, giving the runner adequate stability and all-day comfort.
Hyperlock™ TPU film heel is incorporated into the shoe to provide additional support and prevent the heel from sliding up and down during sharp turns and quick descents.
This lightweight running shoe has a thin, barefoot-like insole that delivers zero ground-to-foot separation.
The upper unit of this trail running shoe is made out of a breathable cotton fabric that allows the air to flow, maintaining a cool and comfortable environment for the foot.
Vapor Glove 3 Cotton uses the traditional lacing system to provide a secure and snug fit every time.
