New minimalist shoes coming out... (Read 608 times)

    (1)  A 4.4 ounce Saucony Hattori (mentioned briefly in the Gears & Wears forum):  http://www.runblogger.com/2010/11/saucony-hattori--44-oz-zero-drop-shoe.html  available in a few weeks I think, and

     

    (2)  A line of three minimalist models created by Altra and available soon (Instinct, Adam, Lone Peak models) reviewed at  http://www.runblogger.com/2010/08/altra-mimimalist-running-shoes-adam.html.  I like the Altra Instinct which looks like a Terra Plana Aqua - a bit heavy for a minimalist shoe at 9 oz., but maybe a good trainer (the Adam model is only 4.7 ounces).

     

    VERY interesting.  Between these two and Asics Piranha (4.6 oz.), I'll probably end up buying a couple of pairs. Still be doing some au natural barefooting though!

        Sorry, I'm computer challenged.  Actually, I searched "Saucony Hattori" and "Altra minimalist shoes" - thought I could make it easier for everyone by posting the links, but my work computer was trying to block them - does that explain it?
