The Running Warehouse blog just posted a preview of Spring 2013 shoes from Merrell. I saw a number of the shoes mentioned when I was visiting Merrell HQ last month, but one that I did not see is the Merrell Vapor Glove. Here’s what RW has to say about the Vapor Glove:
“Available in both Men’s and Women’s models, the Vapor Glove is Merrell’s most minimal running shoe, with just a 6mm stack height front and back. It doesn’t get more minimal than this, folks. You still get a Vibram rubber outsole, durable mesh upper and external TPU heel support. Launches February 2013 at $80.00 MSRP.”
I asked for a bit more detail from my contact at Merrell, and was told that weight will come in a 5oz, and the sole has 2mm of EVA cushion plus a 4mm outsole. For comparative purposes, the Road Glove has 4mm of EVA, and the Bare Access has 8mm. Thus, this shoe will be the most minimal in the Merrell Barefoot collection.
Here are a few photos showing additional colorways (first two are men’s, second two are women’s):In Chapter 4 of Tread Lightly, my co-author Bill Katovsky covers the history of human footwear use, and describes the evolution of the running shoe. An essential resource for the writing of this chapter is a 1980 book aptly titled “The Running Shoe Book.” Written by Peter Cavanagh, a scientist who has contributed more than just about anyone to our understanding of running biomechanics, the book covers many of the topics we touch on in our own book, but from the viewpoint of someone looking at the topics over three decades ago. It’s a wonderful read if you can find a used copy (you can usually find some on Amazon at a reasonable price) – easily one of the most fascinating and informative books that I own.In the second chapter of his book, Cavanagh describes footwear history, as well as the history of running shoe up to 1980. One of the most interesting bits in the chapter is a description and photo of what Cavanagh believes to be the first specialized running shoes ever made. Here’s what he writes about it:“One of the most exciting finds during my own search of museums was made in Northampton – the center of the British shoemaking industry from early times.Beautifully made, and extremely well preserved, the shoe in Figure 2.7 was displayed in a glass case, labeled “Running Shoe – possibly belonged to Lord Spencer c. 1865.” It is likely that this shoe represents the earliest spiked running shoe made on a production basis.The Spencer shoe bears a definite relationship to early cricket shoes. The low cut design is of all leather construction but is nevertheless extremely light at 280 grams. There are three spikes under the forefoot and one under the heel, suggesting that the shoe was used as a distance running or cross-country shoe. It incorporates a broad toe band, which is a separate piece of leather, sewn into the welt of the shoe to add lateral stability.My own view of the Spencer shoe is that it pinpoints the first branch in the evolution of running shoes. From 1865 on, specialized shoes for running turn away from street shoes to form their own line of evolution.”
