Hi Everyone!  About 4 months ago I transitioned to zero drop shoes.  I am currently running in Runventure 2 for trail (very light with minimal cushion, 19mm) and Magnifly 2 (more cushion for everyday road miles 25mm).  Both shoes are from Topo Athletic and I have been enjoying the ride so far.  I really like the shape of their shoes for my feet.  Specifically the space I have in the toe box but it also seems to hold my heel and top of my foot really well.  Topo just came out with a new trail shoe called Terraventure 2 and it looks awesome.  A little more cushion than the Runventure at 22mm forefoot and 25mm in the heel.  It looks like it is a better winter shoe with a more rugged outsole and deeper lugs with more spacing vs the Runventure.  I guess my question is whether a 3mm drop really matters much vs zero drop?  I am guessing there is a reason for doing this but wanted to hear other's opinions.  Thanks in advance for reading and I am looking forward to what others have to say!
