You want to run in barefoot shoes on the trails, but you don't want to end up with rocks lodged in your feet. Try the New Balance 110 Trail Running Shoe. This shoe has the minimal-drop design that you want, but there's still enough cushioning for rocky terrain. The cushion is an ACTEVA midsole, which protects against impact while still maintaining the lightweight feel of barefoot shoes. There's also a stability shank under the arch so you don't accidentally roll your feet from the uneven terrain. This shank also helps to smooth out your gait, making the heel-to-toe transition seamless and efficient.
