Minimal shoes are highly individualized and subjective

Remember, shoes are only one bit of the solution to sustainable and injury-free running. Personally, running form is primary and shoes are secondary. Hopefully my two plus many years of wear testing of over 150 minimal shoes will help you remove some shoes to try out with no hassles and injury-free.
Here's their email list from the top 7 minimalist athletic shoes as tested by Minimalist Running Shoes wear testers:
We have also recently released our free Fall-Winter '12 Minimalist Shoe Buying Guide (iBook format) for that Apple iPad and in a less interactive (no interactive galleries and interactive images) universal PDF version.
For detailed reviews of minimalist shoes, please visit Minimalist Athletic shoes for those running, casual, and fitness shoes we have Wear Tested.
After wear testing over 150 minimalist shoes (or barefoot-style shoes or barefoot shoes or minimal shoes or anything you want to them), it's still very confusing for somebody to choose a pair of minimal shoes successfully. Minimal shoes are highly individualized and subjective. But the following are important elements to look for in a barefoot-style shoe:
For all those with narrow feet, wide toe box shoes can cause problems. I have sized up a full size for some models and they were too large so I can simulate the impact. For those running on gnarly trails, you may want a built-in or removable rock plate. But according to my preferences and the range of situations I have encountered myself and my tight number of wear testers, from problems for transitioning to advanced minimalist running, I've enough confidence that whenever seconds of putting on a set of minimalist shoe (any category), I will tell immediately on either extreme: great minimal shoe or no-go (too near to traditional shoes). Those that belong in between will need lengthy testing but those usually become so-so.
