minimus i would say, or try the trail glove from merrell, their barefoot range has a good selection though, the trailglove has nothing in the way of cushioning, much like a vibram, but they hae some with a little cushioning that still have the zero drop and vibram sole for people starting out on BF running.
"I'm running in a pair of Adidas which aren't as cushioned as the old shoes but seem to feel better. I've also compared where I strike my foot in the 2 shoes which is different. This has led me to think should I now while I'm a newbie start training with a barefoot shoe..."
That is a huge assumption to make - feeling better might not be anytihng to do with the level of cushioning (could be fit, size, support, weight, etc, etc). Some of my tighter socks feel better than the looser ones - I don't follow that wapred logic through to buying socks 2 sizes to small!
If your Adidas are comfortable, why not stick with them? Unless you want to try the minimal trend. In which case, you don't need an excuse - just have a go! Just not in your next race!
