Okay, following Max's lead, I tried a new pair of shoes this morning. The NB 890v4s I got for free in the swag bag for leading a training run a few weeks back. Normally I'm dubious about free shoes, but these fit the basic profile for me -- neutral, light, but not full on minimal. I won't give the full history, but when I tried them on they reminded me of a light version of an old favorite New Balance line (can't remember the numbers). The key element in those shoes, and in these, was a wide forefoot with a lot of padding to the outside. The effect was to roll the foot in toward the ball of the foot on toe off. This is a big help for me, as I have a tendency to roll out. I've been running in Mizuno Wave Riders, which I've liked, but with the orthotics, the heel drop was a bit excessive, and the forefoot a bit narrow. The 890s report an 8mm heel drop, again, not minimal, but not the 12 or 13 that is standard with a traditional trianer.
Short version. I really loved them. I took them out for a seven mile run, and my stride felt natural for the first time in months. They accepted the orthotics easily, and I did not feel pulling in my heel, even when I opened up my stride. I think I'll stick with these for a while, and report back after a few more miles.
