      I’m curious has anyone here used xeroshoes. I am looking into getting new running shoes and can’t find ones I like. I currently wear new balance prevail. They are a 4mm drop and I’d like to go to a zero drop. But the ones I keep seeing and trying have a lot of cushion and support. I’ve tried brooks, Ultras and another one just can’t remember name.

      In USA there are new balance minimus trail, without drop and without cushion, here in Europe there are Merrell shoes witout cushion and drop. I also like the Topo Athletic ST2 (witout drop, but with a little cushion. Hope, I could help you

      Topos and Altra’s are my favorites. The Altra Escalantes sound like they would be a good fit for you as they have very little support and just enough cushion to feel good but not squishy. If you are looking at the websites for these shoes and using their recommendations, you are going to get a recommendation for a shoe that has more cushion and support because they think you are coming from a traditional shoe and they are conservatively recommending a shoe that will allow you to transition to a shoe with less cushion and support. If you are taking the shoe recommendation quiz, try answering the questions about the current shoes you wear being one of their shoes. That will give you a recommendation for the next level of shoe with less support and cushion.

      Thanks guys, I ended up getting Merrill’s barefoot and really like them. I also have the new balance prevail for walking.
