What 1960s replica minimal shoes are you into these days? Is it still the Waffle Trainers?
I'm running low on my supply of waffle trainers (bought several on ebay a couple years ago, but the supply has run dry). But you would've liked the one for this morning: the Onitsuka Tiger Super Marup. Which is essentially the same shoe on the cover of Jim Fixx's first book -- I suspect versions of this shoe may have also been called the Pinto and the Marathon at various times. Great shoe. In the late 70's several high school XC teams in my area used it as a racing flat (we didn't have much mud in our area and often had to cross concrete patches, so spikes weren't popular).
Tomorrow I'm running trails with friends and will use the Walsh Trainers -- a fell running shoe from England ("fell running" roughly translates as hill running, probably in Welsh, and I think describes a "cross country from hell" sport involving hills and mud) -- great shoe;I think their original trainer came out in the 70s and they still make it ( . . . or at least did a couple years ago when I ordered them).
I seem to be doing about 65 mpw consistently these days, mostly at 5AM with one weekend longie with friends; not bad for the old slowpoke. Next marathon is April (not Boston this year, but we'll do it again in '07 . . . I already got the qualifier).
