Wondering if anyone can give some insight on what sort of shoes to run in while transitioning to minimalist shoes. Specifically, if my legs are used to zero-drop, but my feet aren't really strong enough for minimal shoes, would something like the Virrata be a good shoe to run high mileage in while slowly working in a more minimal model? Or should I go for something with a higher heel-toe drop?
Also, how does one go from wearing shoes with support to more minimal, and hence neutral shoes? People seem to have different views on whether pronation needs to be controlled at all. Is there any science showing support does anything to minimize injury? One of the foundations of minimalism seems to be that humans were "build" to run, so footwear should interfere with the body's mechanics as little as possible (which makes perfect sense), but given that other parts of the body can operate incorrectly in some people, couldn't the same go for running mechanics? For example, the eye is build to see, but many people still need glasses.
