Whether you’re into barefoot or more traditional sneakers, surely we can all agree on one thing: the Merrell Barefoot Train Hammer Glove is one sweet looking sneaker.

Despite a sleek, low-profile design, the Hammer Glove is more of a training shoe than a runner (although we’re not saying you can’t run in them). Features on the shoe like a rubber medial protection cage, and a strap across the laces, are designed to give users added support and protection in the gym, or really wherever they train.  The Hammer Glove’s 0mm drop from heel-to-toe allows for maximum ground contact for better balance. Merrell has paired it with a Vibram Road Glove outsole so you can have proper traction, even with that huge puddle of sweat on the ground beside you.
