You know your stuff, a pleasure to read.
Good news - The 205 is in the mould of the 240 - a shade over 200g, no medial post, very low profile midsole and a bit of cushioning in heel and ff. Not so good news (for you at least) - The 750 is more of a replacement for the 330 - therefore heavier than the 205 (235g) and medial post. This category's been tough in the past for us. Because of our 'no superstar endorsement' philosophy we've not had the marketing presence in track and field which maybe has hampered us in convincing retailers to buy into NB racers vs. more visible brands. Our product's sound, we know that, you know it, but there's a lot of brands fighting for limited wall space in a niche category (compared to road running) and our shoes haven't always been the first ones bought. Which we want to change. Hence this new range which we'll market more prominently when launched to make sure they become more visible. As for the 150, this is one of those niche shoes which will never be a massive seller, like say our 854, but is a god-send for those like you who crave that ultra minimalist feel. At the moment, it's not officially in the line for next spring which NBUK cherry pick from, but it's been in and out before and hopefully with more consumer demand from people like yourself it will see a return.
