If you want good minimal shoes that will last a bit but are lower priced try the New Balance minimus Trail not the 00_ last number being the current model as those have a tiny bit of cushion also have road models of both too now that don't last thanks to the upper design, I think that New Balance still makes the model with a number behind them, if not they made the 00/00_ model and merged the orginal Minimums style to the minimal cushioned to cut back on the shoe models having less cussion but not none like the old model.

What Brand of Viberam Soles? Is that the Five Finger shoes sold only on the brands Website and on Amazon or some other shoes that use the Viberam sole?

The Merrell * Glove shoes (Move Glove, Trail Glove, Vapor Glove) all use the Vibram sole. I really like my Merrell Move Glove shoes....I can feel the ground as I walk, but the sole has a 'tread' so I also have grip. My Vibram Five Finger shoes didn't have tread, so I could slip easily when walking on wet ground.

I have seen people complain about the some of the shoes for running, the treads used to have odd small pieces of other round rubber nubs glued to the rubber sole that would come off during the first 100 miles of running. Now I think the shoes are better designed, but I would look for reviews on the shoe model before ordering. I think the Company when first on the market, fixed its issues with the trail models, you see lots of runners wearing the shoes now, even a model made for military use, though most still use the minimal Under Armour models.

Tracerocker GTX's are still holding up strong after 6 months of use, and they were dirt cheap for Goretex. I got them for $60.

Only downside for me so far has been that they are significantly grippier on concrete than my old Salomons. This week I got a little bit of knee pain from throwing drives, which hasn't happened to me in a long time. Could be a good or bad thing for someone else.
