I just pitched out my first pair of these after 800 miles (plastic heel counter began to break through the padding). That was all road running, as that's what is available to me. They worked fine for that, even though they're supposedly a trail shoe. I really like the fit. I got my usual running-shoe size and they are to size, although perhaps about 1/4-size too small. Once when I wore two pairs of socks in 13-degree weather the extra amount was enough to cause pressure and a black toenail. I've got two more pairs of these ready to go. Asymmetrical lacing is an interesting idea and posed no problems. As far as minimalism goes, I find it roomy enough (unlike some other reviewers), it's lightweight, and there doesn't feel like much heel-toe differential, although I haven't been able to find specifications for that; it does have too much padding for good ground feel. I'd call it semi-minimalist.
