For those who have made the transition to minimalist shoes, what shoe do you recommend for long training runs and a marathon if all else is equal (fit, price, etc). I realize it's a personal choice, but I'd be interested in hearing who likes what. I haven't run long in a while, and have really only run about once a week for the past year since I have switched to Crossfit for general fitness. I've got the itch to start running again for real, and based on Pete's review I bought and have have put a few runs on my Adidas Hagios. They are great, but I just did an 8-miler in them and I wonder if they aren't too firm for marathon training mileage. I was a big fan of my Kinvara 2s, and ran my last marathon (a year and a half ago) in them. I am looking forward to trying the Grid Type A5 and the Kinvara 3, and will likely settle on one of those two, but I figured I'd see if anyone on here has been through the same decisionmaking process.
