less expensive zero drop shoes?

I'm looking for a pair of zero drop shoes, but not necessarily for my competitive crossfitting every day. I have a pair of inov8 shoes for that, and i like them. I'm looking for something to wear daily as a PE teacher. I've moved away from shoes like the new balance 580 even though i like the aesthetic style, I'm looking for something with zero drop that i can wear with khaki shorts or athletic shorts. they will be everyday shoes, but I might run or crossfit in them if i had to. I'm also hoping not to pay more than 50 or 60 bucks...i just can't keep buying shoes that are 100+ dollars. I'm also not worried about brands, anything will work. any advice would be appreciated. I know I'm asking and hoping for a lot here. Thanks in advance.

Re: less expensive zero drop shoes?

I know this doesn't really answer your question, but I would watch websites like 6pm and the clymb. I bought my 195's from the clymb for $60. I've also got some of my friends buying from them and I got a $20 credit for each person that ordered something. 6pm currently has inov8's for $60-67. Hard to beat, IMO. Especially with free shipping. I'd even be willing to bet that you can find a 10% coupon to 6pm if you do a quick google search.

Just my two cents.

Merrell Bare Access. I think they're fantastic, although the Bare Access 2 might be even better. I just haven't tried it on. They're on sale at 6pm - http://www.6pm.com/merrell-barefoot-...fcTest=mat%3A1 (WFS)

Follow New Balance on Facebook--a day or two ago they had a bunch of their Minimus shoes on sale for $59 with free shipping.

This site (WFS) occasionally has good deals too.

Re: less expensive zero drop shoes?

Runner's Warehouse often has some great sales. They have a lot of good ones right now.

http://www.runningwarehouse.com/catpage-SALETHINGM.html (WFS)

- Inov8 Road X 155 on liquidation sale
- Tons of Bare Access shoes for around $60
- Merrel Road Glove for $70. AWESOME SHOE! My personal favorite.
- Mizuno Wave Musha for $62
- New Balance MT00 and MR00 both for $70. I would definitely jump on that deal.

Anyways. They have a lot and they're always doing sales. Check it out and check often.

Add code FB15D to any closeout shoes and you've really got a deal.

Ah, that's the site I was thinking of...they've got several versions of the Minimus for ~$40 less than retail. Great deal.

Re: less expensive zero drop shoes?

Also, via this site "http://www.runblogger.com/" (WFS) which has good reviews on all these types of shoes, there's another coupon for runningwarehouse.com (also wfs)

I also wear the NB 730 for my kick around shoes (in addition to the minimus etc mentioned earlier). They are great - not quite 0 drop, but close enough. Not squishy or hard under foot either.
