- Mizuno Wave Evo Levitas (old model, now discontinued)
A nice lightweight road shoe, great for speed work, road racing (5k, 10k, 21k). I'd do a marathon in these, but then I've also done a marathon in Saucony Hattoris, and a half in FiveFingers. I'll be honest, this is my favourite running shoe by a long way. Light, breathes well, comfy, lower stack, small drop... It's sold as zero drop, but is really closer to 4mm.
The only other running shoes that I use even semi-regularly are: Altra Lone Peak 2 (older model, great all-rounder trail shoe); and Saucony Hattori (I have about 6 pairs of these, great to run in, velcro fastener, but the uppers aren't that durable).
Basically, everything I like has been discontinued. But that Wave Evo Levitas is an amazing shoe: under 7oz and about 4mm of drop.
Hoka Clifton 2's
Nike Zoom Vomero's
I personally have found that the newer model Nike running shoes are my current fav's...I've slowly worked my way around and back to their products this year...free's for racing/speedwork and vomero's for longer training...
The wide toe box and zero drop has been fantastic for me. Strangely the escalante didn't work out well for me even though they were comfy. I probably put 50 miles on them before they were relegated to casual wear.
I'm 44, only been running for 2.5 years now, went from some kind of trainer UA, to cushy Saucony, to these Newton shoes, and probably will get lighter and less cushioned after these. I am trying to run balanced enough that I wouldn't necessarily need shoes (but I will keep wearing them because they have huge advantages over barefoot)
Nike Zoom Elite
Asics Fuji Racer
What do you think of the Wildhorse? I'm really intrigued by that shoe... I live on a park with great trails. Looking for something to replace that pair of Boco ATs.

- Asics Hyper-Tri Running Shoes, some random shoes I saw someone else wearing, sounded gimmicky but they've been great and not horribly expensive
- On Cloudflow, trying these now based on recommendation and TBD on how I like 'em. Some dam expensive shoes though that's for sure.
Not to derail the thread but for those who wear more minimalist shoes, what shoes do you have? PMs or replies would be greatly appreciated.
They are very, very similar. Only significant difference I have noticed is they seem to be holding up a little better, particularly with respect to sole wear. Upper may breathe a little better. Fit, cushioning, etc., seem unchanged, thankfully, since the 2.5 was nearly the perfect all purpose cushioned road shoe IMHO.
<---- 185lbs, like a lot of shoe.
Altra Escalante - Shorter Runs (7mi and less, have run 14 in them but I didnt like it)
Altra Torin 3.0 - longer runs (longer runs)
Hoka Clifton 3 - recovery
Want to try the Topo Athletic FlyLyte (3 mm Drop) and UltraFly (5mm drop) for recovery runs a little drop is a nice thing.
