Nonethless, New balance is still my choice.
I like vibram and nike frees but only for runs of less than 3 miles.
Yes, Nike is the worst with the narrow toe box. I loved the pair of lunar trainers I had, but the racers were just to slim. I have found the best racing flats that can handle high mileage for me are Brooks ST Racer 3's. They have a toe box that is just a bit wider and that makes all the difference.
Has anyone tried Mizuno Wave Musha 2s? I have heard they are a bit wider than most int he toe box and the weight is really similar to the Brooks I have been running in the last year or so. No running shop around here has them, migh just have to order a pair and see how they work out.
