What will you be using them for? If it's just straight running the runners are a bit lighter and there is less "stuff" on the shoes too. However if it's for all kinds of different training I'd say the trainers since I do feel like the strap is helpful.

The numbers are supposed to be a scale between regular shoes(10) and being barefoot(0). I actually just started with a 5.0 at the time 7.0's didn't exist yet. There are also guidelines in the show box that I'd recommend you follow. My feet were kind of sore the first few weeks and I had to definitely adjust the way I ran.

I love these shoes and going back to "regular" sneakers is pretty uncomfortable.

Right now I wear my 5.0 and 7.0 trainers for met-cons, and everyday type shoes. I only wear my 5.0 runners for running and sprinting. I wear wrestling shoes for lifting.
