I just purchased a pare of Merrell Access 2 Barefoot shoes from REI. They also cover all the bases for a good minimalist shoe The pair weighs 380 g.
Well done you - just kidiing:). I realise there's lots and lots of options out there now. I was just saying these are the best I had found AND worn. When I got them there were very few barefoot shoes for me to look at here in New Zealand and I had to get the Lems mail order. I was also looking for something without the "electric spaceman" look favoured by most of the running companies.
We have some of the Merrell and New Balance range available in New Zealand now. However, they are pretty pricey (USD 169 for the Access 2s), so even with shipping costs the Lems are still good value for me.
I use Inov-8 295s for backpacking trips and can't see myself going much more minimal than that at the moment for the conditions I hike in.
