I took a chance and switched shoes after a dozen or so pairs of Asics 2100 series. I have a very neutral foot bed and have probably been in the wrong shoe since the 2100 series is a support shoe. New Balance makes a neutral (less cushioned) runner in the 759. Sticking with the barefoot/minimalist movement, I stepped down the protection with these shoes. It probably wasn't the best time to switch, but I said to myself, "what the hell?"
