It doesn't look like they widened the toe box any. I like the Life except it was too short at my 3rd and 4th toes, though the first two were fine.

John, you are correct. It's no wider. At first I actually thought it was narrower, but I measured and it's identical. The pattern of the fabric of the upper actually makes it appear narrower than it is. Optical illusion.

I now have the Altra Adam for running. The Adam has a VERY wide toebox, making it the single most comfortable shoe in which I've ever run. This NB Minimus Cross appears to be a lot narrower. The large shoe makers just cannot seem to get their minds around the idea of a really comfortable shoe. Not even Vibram got fully into complete freedom for the forefoot. (And I love the brown Vibram Trek LS. If I'm not running, I've got the Vibrams on my feet.)

One of the trainers at my gym loves these shoes so I went to find a pair. Now my foot measures 12.5 which means I almost always have to buy a size 13 as most mnaufacturers do not make 12.5. So I tried on two of size 13 versions of these shoes and they are way too small -- my toes were crunched into the front of the shoe -- and there is no size 14.

I checked my shoe size at the store and it measured 12.5 so what gives. Shorter shoe models?
