Spangly new shoes

I mentioned back at the beginning of January that I was after some minimalist trail running shoes. Well after waiting, and looking, and searching and waiting, New Balance failed.

As I was in London today I took a trip into the Vivobarefoot shop in Covent Garden and tried on lots of shoes; had a go on the treadmill, tried some more and then bought these beauties.

They're Vivobarefoot Breatho Trails and they won't ever be so clean again.

  1. Curious if they only changed the upper from the Neo Trails, or if any modifications were made in the sole. I am trying out the Merrell Barefoot Trail Gloves, and they have a thin yet helpful rock plate in the forefoot.. but the tread leaves something to be desired traction wise..

  2. I'm pretty sure that it's just an upper change.
