The Minimus 10v2 Trail is designed for runners who like to take the trail by the horns. The most virtually barefoot New Balance trail shoe yet, it supports a natural foot positioning and multi-directional traction with flexible overlays, a fitted mesh upper and a rugged Vibram® outsole. You will literally feel every contour of the trail beneath your feet as you go, giving you the ability to push yourself harder than ever before.
Features
  • 4 mm drop: due to variances created during the development and manufacturing processes, all references to 4mm drop are approximate
  • Barefoot friendly internal construction
  • Flexible overlays in optimal areas
  • Minimus is a whole new approach to footwear, a new place on the spectrum from barefoot running to the traditional maximum-cushioning running shoe. Inspired by Good Form Running and designed to be worn with or without socks. With only a 4mm drop* from heel to toe, as little as a third of that of a traditional running shoe, the Minimus collection holds a world of discovery for neutral runners as well as those with gait issues or chronic injury to conquer by learning better form.
  • Odor-resistant
  • Synthetic/Mesh upper
  • Vibram® outsole provides maximum surface contact and multi-directional traction. Vibram is a registered trademark of Vibram S.p.A. All rights reserved.

    "I loved running and hiking in this shoe, very comfortable. However, the toe design is terrible. The sole tip that comes up over the toe keeps coming separated from the fabric and leaves a big gap. I see that another reviewer had this same problem and I am wondering if any others have too. Its disappointing because I love NB and have run in their shoes for years. I hope in next years design this is addressed. If so I might consider rebuying, if not I will not get these shoes again."

    "I was having a really hard time finding shoes that did not give me black toe nails... But the wide toe space in these shoes and size up a size and a half has solved this problem. These shoes are super comfortable, and have worked lovely for me for my 5-7 mile runs. I am a huge fan of minimalist shoes and I don't wear anything else."

    "Love to give this shoe 5 stars for comfort and style but the stinky odor from sweaty feet, I wear with socks, is truly unbearable and extremely disappointing. These are my first NBs and would likely not purchase again unless this issue is resolved."

    "I LOVE this shoe. I love the way it fits/looks/feels EVERYTHING. BUT, I am SO DISAPPOINTED. I bought the shoe in july/august. I had to return the shoe THREE times because the seal at the toe would peel back and leave a gaping hole. It is September and I can no longer return the shoe because my 30 days is up & I have yet again ANOTHER gaping hole in the front. Super disappointed. I want this shoe so badly but the quality of it's design seems to get the best of it every time. I have not yet contacted NB, but do intend to. Hopefully they will help me get this shoe & one that doesn't fall apart! Overall, The shoes are great; quality is poor. I would be happy to take a photo of my shoes. I hate leaving terrible reviews but I do believe it is NOT okay to have a shoe that is falling apart (which, as a teacher, I've spent a lot of money for) in less than 2/3 months."

    "Own the NB WT20GP minimalist. Most comfortable shoe I've ever had & they wash up great with going thru a tough mudder, another mud run, a few crazy legs, weekly cross-fit class and plain daily chores. (they wash up like new in the washing machine!) Just got these in the mail and they have the same great feel! Love the bright colors & would definitely recommend!"
