A quick google for 'New Balance Minimus Road review' turns up numerous hits where these shoes are reviewed in a lot more detail than I'll go into here---but the ones I've read have rated them highly (you might want to confirm this for yourself, though.)
I purchased these shoes because running had become painful for me as I (gradually) increased the distance of my runs. After researching on the Internet, I bought into the idea that the cause of this pain might be the 'unnatural' heel-striking action which is encouraged by most modern, wedge-shaped running shoes on the market. In my search for alternatives, I came across 'water shoes'* (simple shoes with a flat sole that are designed to be worn to the beach.) I was running in these for some time, and though initially the transition to a midfoot/forefoot strike caused my calves to ache and burn for days afterwards, they soon adapted and I've been running without pain ever since.
My cheap water shoes didn't last for many miles, however, so I decided to replace them with a specialist product, namely these Minimus Road shoes from New Balance. The comfort and support is fantastic (they're so comfortable, in fact, that I no longer wear socks on my runs, so my toes are free to roam.) They're increadibly light. They appear to be durable and well-constructed (though time will tell: I've only put ~50km on them to this point.) And, as an added bonus, they look great too.
I'm so happy with my purchase; they've helped to make running enjoyable for me. I can't recommend them highly enough.
* Water Shoes are cheap. I'd recommend buying a pair if you're considering transitioning to a thin-soled, zero-drop shoe. If you like them (or rather, if you like the running form that they encourage), you can decide to spend more money on a specialist product. You don't get much change from £70 with NB's Minimus Road, so make sure they are what you're looking for before you buy them...
