Merrell Women's Pace Glove Trail Running Shoe
No more ITBS
These are my first minimalist runners. They are super light and durable. Machine washable as well.
I managed training for a half marathon and running a half in these just fine. After getting used to the mid-foot plant, I no longer have knee pain from my IT Band which I know is a very common running problem and bothered me in Aasics (Cloud something or other) and Saucony (Hurricanes).
Very happy with these shoes! They are still in great shape after over a year of intensive use and came at a reasonable price. I think I'll look for something that keeps water out a bit more for the winter because these are not suitable for snow (although if you just have cold, dry weather a pair of warm socks makes them winter friendly).

Problem Feet? No Problem!
I have Morton's Neuroma on one foot and bunions on the other. This is the only pair of shoes I can wear without modification, inserts, cushions, etc. Incredibly comfortable, even when I'm on my feet on hard surfaces all day long, for any activity - hiking, biking, running. They're smaller than heavily-cushioned shoes, too, so they take up minimal room in a suitcase - a plus for workouts when traveling.

I LOVE THEM
I have always had back problems, and wearing these when I run, I think has helped my back.
