ive become more and more bothered by the idea in the past 5 years, since getting married and starting a new life overseas, i worry more about my son and wife's loss than i do my own though.
my achilles woke up when i switched to zero drop, but as a result i'm faster and run more comfortably (these may be a by product of just being a more experienced runner now too, coincidence maybe)
traction and ground response on push off will = faster road times probably.
i wear the merrell trailglove, its great on and off road, get over 1000 miles from them too,
they are not half price, thats the price, the "full price" is fabricated to make them appear like a "bargain"
that said, they look a nice light weight shoe.
