Saucony have been doing quite a bit in this area with a move to 4mm heel-to-toe drops on a number of shoes. There are some new models, such as the Kinvara and Mirage, and also some existing models have been updated, such as the Fastwitch.
Personally I bought a pair of Mirage and I'm very pleased with them, using them for base training upto about 15 miles so far without any discomfort. I'm very tempted to pick up a pair of the Fastwitch or Kinvara for my speed work. I've moved across from more traditional Asics shoes, and haven't had any problems.
I think inov-8 have been doing some road shoes lately, so these might be worth a look?
Brooks Pure Flow. Great shoe..
