3. I'm exploring the minimalist approach too, and I have same worries about running on hard surfaces in zero drop, no cushioning shoes (I've got Merrell Vapor Glove 3's). I'm just going to use them on soft surfaces, to give my foot muscles a workout. I got a book "Your best stride" that I'd recommend. It says to use various different shoes, to avoid the leg muscles getting stuck in a groove.

I was also interested in minimalist running and had the same concerns. Have heard of a shoe company called Altra? They make zero drop shoes with several layers of padding. I have the Atlra Escalante and LOVE them!! Changed my running. Good luck!!
