I like them and been looking at um for my next pair of running shoes

Been wearing the Puma Faas 300 for about a year and would definitely recommend as well

The orange is going to make it hard to color coordinate your outfits.
You don't want more than 3-4 colors in total.
What color Satchel will you be carrying around while wearing these shoes? Phone Post

I'm more of a Vans guy, so those running shoes don't do it for me.

It must be a generational thing. Phone Post

The NB's look good. Very low profile. 

I like the Nike Free's. It's not low profile but I'm not exactly 6'0" so every inch counts. Plus they're really comfortable.

I ditched my last pair of perfectly good New Balance...specifically so I now have no shoes. I actually have only one pair...dress shoes. Which means it's gotta be a really important formal shin-dig or funeral before I have to pull out my shoes.

I have had 4 pairs of frees - love em.

I liked the blue pair of NB Minimus when I saw them.

I like the Minimus' as workout shoes. I've gone running and hiking in them, and I use em everyday at the gym. I would never wear them with jeans though. That's just ridiculous.
For jeans I wear Adidas or some of the more basic Jordans Phone Post

fucking brilliant. Youre like Brad Pitt in Fight Club, but better.

I wish I could do this same thing. I HATE shoes. Id wear flip flops 24/7 if I could

You've posted two versions without the strap across the widest part of the foot like the trail versions, MT10 and MT20. The trail shoes with the strap may be too snug if you got wide feet. The trail shoes have a Vibram sole, the others don't. Not sure if that matters to you. NB makes wide widths but you may need to order online.

The Nike Frees feel a bit more comfortable if walking around a lot. You may need to get used to the 'minimal' sole. It's a step up from the Vibram FiveFingers.

I do use the Minimus MT20 for working out due to the more level heel to toe bottom and light weight but prefer my Frees for walking around. Just my $.02
