I've stayed out of this discussion, as the focus seemed to be far from minimalist footwear. I hike in Vivos (Breatho Trail, although now the new model is called Trail Freak). All I can say is that I love them. But you do have to adapt to minimalist shoes. Strengthen your ankles, calves, and Achilles, as well as internal foot muscles. There is lots on the web on how to do this. It will take longer than the shoe manufacturers suggest, though. But it is an investment in strength fitness that will pay off for the rest of your life.
I run in Inov-8 TrailRoc 150s. I find the Vivos more comfortable to hike in.
You can't really compare minimalist shoes to regular trail runners. Biomechanically and fitness-wise, they entail two different types of hiking almost. I'll note that the American College of Sports Medicine finally reversed itself and recognized the growing literature on footwear and has now endorsed more anatomic and minimalist shoes.
To be a little critical, the trail Vivos have had durability issues (I have had multiple pairs). The lugs rip off too easily (although there are so many, you can afford to loose a number of them with no real performance impact). I am not sure how well they have addressed this issue with the new Trail Freak model. There was also an issue with shoe laces (they sucked and needed substitution if you didn't want knots coming untied occasionally), which they have addressed with the Trail Freak.
But overall, I know of no other shoe I would consider wearing for 3 season hiking.
