|Altra Instict 2 - similar footbed to|
the Topo Terradventure
The upper reminds me of the Vivobarefoot Breatho. Has a 3mm drop and feels like a good high mileage shoe with a little more cushion than a minimalist shoe, like the Altra Instincts.

I wouldn't buy a shoe that is uncomfortable. This shoe definitely fits my foot and has no tight spots. Running downhill my feet did not slide forward and slam my toes.

I like the idea of an all-around shoe. Their site says that it is geared more toward trails, but the tread looks and feels fine on the road.
I'm very excited about these and hope they work out!
