Years ago, I adopted the barefoot running style and strictly wore 1st gen., 0-mm drop Merrell trail and road runners. After taking more than a year off due to life circumstances, I discovered I couldn't jump back into a 0mm drop Vibram platform. So I tried the Brooks, 4 mm drop, PureGrit™ trail runners as a sort of crossover. After just one week of tramping up and down rocky, uneven, and sometimes muddy terrain, these dogs pushed the limits of my expectation. The last fit true to size and I love the curved support of the upper design. I may never return to Merrell's 0mm drop after this experience with Brooks. Durability remains to be seen, but for now, I am most impressed!
