My New Balance 730s have about 325 miles on them, and the sole wear is telling me I'm due for a new pair pretty soon.
Between these and the NB MR10s before them, I've been running in slightly cushioned, 4mm drop shoes for the past few years. I like the 730s much better than the 10s, but the fit is a tiny bit tricky for me -- I'd prefer an even narrower heel so I didn't wind up over-tightening the forefoot laces so often.
I'm tempted to try a zero drop shoe and/or a different brand mainly for fun and in part because I keep reading/thinking "the less drop the better." Is that just silly?
Merrells have caught my eye as have some of the more cushioned zero drop Sauconys.
I run almost entirely on pavement and am doing about 20 miles/week right now. Time permitting I'll start doing some longer runs of 6-8 miles at a time, but I'm not training for a half or full or anything like that.
Any thoughts and/or specific shoe advice? Thanks!
