Hello, I'm looking to buy a new pair of minimalist-shoes and this time I want a pair I will use mostly for asphalt-running. I've noticed that my Vibram KSO got affected quite alot when I used them alot on asphalt, so this time I want to get a pair of shoes thats very tough and also toe-less so I could use regular socks in them.

I will save my FiveFinger's lifespan by only using them for 'luxury-runs' in the nature instead.

Does anyone have any thoughts about Merrel, VivoBarefoot etc? Name some good shoes and I'll see if I could get them from the nearby store.
