Jethro117, you can get the Nike KB Mentality for 80 bucks at multiple stores on sale. The word is that they take a while to break in the uppers, but that they’re pretty minimal and allow the foot to function like the foot. If you signed up for the Dick’s Sporting Goods mailing list, you could get a coupon and get them for just over 70 bucks shipped with free return if needed. 

It’s a shame more shoes aren’t stripped down like this – most are just getting ridiculous shank plates, arch supports, thick midsoles that are like strapping 2x4s to your feet. Crazy!

Maybe the Adidas pinch because the toe box is too narrow. 
Good luck.
