Well, the minimalist running trend has hit the markets full blown. No longer must everyone succumb to the silly looking Vibram Five Fingers style of barefoot running shoes. Introducing the "Minimus" by New Balance which uses a Vibram sole. I have been looking for some shoes to accompany my workout regimen at Crossfit Sweat here in Springfield, VA. I was told I needed a flat-footed shoe like Chuck Taylors, Weight lifting shoes, or Vibram FF were good CF choices. However, there was one problem. I didn't like the versatility of the first 2 and I didn't like the looks of the Vibram FF.
And low and behold 2 new shoes hit the market in the Minimus and the Merrell Trail Glove. After reading many reviews I opted for the NB's.
