I'm looking to buy my first pair of barefoot running shoes and have narrowed it down to the Vivobarefoot Neo Trail and the New Balance Minimus

I would love a pair of VFF's but my wife says she won't leave the house with me whilst wearing them!! So I'm appealing to you good people out there who have owned either of these shoes and would care to share an opinion. I intend to use them for forest trail running and general grok type stuff.

All help greatly appreciated!
