Toasted 3 pairs, one brown and two black. These are my only shoes besides my Luna's. Work, play, hiking, walking. I run barefoot in them as well. The one common thread is that the interiors just don't age as well as the exteriors. Is anyone wearing something similar from another company?

Have been wearing the mighty gloves, since I cannot find a pair of tough gloves my size. I've had to put shoe polish on the outside a few times, and toss in the washer a couple times. I've noticed the foot bed near the toes was pulling up from the base, but has not separated so I cannot feel it when wearing. Just got a new pair in 9.5, to get a bit more room in the toes. Otherwise, been -very- happy. They are not VFF's, but they are very acceptable and comfortable on most jobsites.

Mine are in great shape other than the scuffing in the toe guard and sole wear from wearing a trail sole on pavement. The only thing that bothers me is the width and the toespring. Even after widening mine my pinky toe cannot expand much Embarrassed (Also happens in Vivobarefoot)

I wear mine with socks pretty much always so that may explain the interior has not degraded much.

I would be ecstatic if they released a wide width version with the road glove or bare access sole (Merrell could call it the office glove or urban glove for all I care since women have so many more casual offerings). The children's trail glove has a flat sole more or less so it is not that crazy of an idea.
