It's so great to find a good pair of shoes. Just hope they don't discontinue them or you have to buy a half dozen pairs all at once.

You can usually get the previous model at a discount. Check Ebay, 6pm, roadrunnersports.com or Amazon and you'll probably be able to find them. I recently grabbed a couple pairs of the New Balance Minimus shoes I knew worked for me, and they were only $35 a pair since they were discontinued. I hate that they update the models almost every year, just when you find something that works well.

I finally found a shoe I love that doesn't rub the back of my narrow heels! I had never tried Mizuno before and I love my Inspire 9 shoes, but now they have come out with a new model, Inspire 10, that looks completely different! Has anyone tried the 10's yet? Or can anyone recommend another model that might be similar? I have low arches and overpronate quite a bit. I rotate shoes and occasionally use fivefingers or similar shoes to strengthen my feet and work on my form, but need something that will hold up to more milage (training for a half in April). I have a history of IT band issues but so far so good with the Inspire 9 shoes.
