My choice was New Balance Minimus Road. They certainly feel different to my first running shoes (Adidas Adistar Ride 2). The big thing for me, rather than the minimalist/barefoot aspect, has been to find a shoe that doesn't have a large heel-to-toe drop. My current Adidas trainers have a whopping 14mm difference between the height of the heel and the forefoot/toes. These shoes have 4mm difference, I'm interested to see the difference.
Update June 2013:
These shoes have a nice wide toe-box and give a firm ride. If you like your foot strike to be accompanied by some nice cushioning, these shoes are not going to be for you. If you want to try a minimal shoe but would like a softer ride, one of the Nike Free shoes might be a sensible alternative.
Saying that, I think they are a very nice looking pair of shoes and although they are not really my go to shoe, I do occasionally slip them on for a bit of firm semi-minimalistic running.
