"The V3 has been a disappointment. The shoe has a much narrower toe box and quite a bit stiffer then the V2, making blisters and cramped toes a regular occurrence on runs. I've been running in the V2 for years and love the shoe. Please bring the old model back - the new version is just plain bad."

"I've had multiple pair in the Minimus line and love them. I read a review of the new MT10 V3 which started the little circle things in the tread come off. I thought it was a one off mistake. I've had mine for 2 days and the adhesive holding the on tread is disintegrating. I love NB Minimus and this is very disappointing. I'm beginning to super glue the tread back on as it separates. I'll give NB a pass on this production error but can't score this review high. I will remain a customer and hope NB finds a proper adhesive. I don't see how his got through product testing."

"Although I am loyal to the Minimus line for first for proving I need not suffer plantar fasciitis, and second, over time, for surprising me with I also need not suffer twisted ankles, I bought my first and last pair of the 10v3. The heel design neither contains a notch at the rear of the heel nor is made of a padded surface that rolls away from the foot. The hard, high heel edge cuts into my feet. The problem was fixed with a pair of scissors, the blood in the shoe showing precisely where to cut. Next Minimus model please. P.S. I loved the 10v2."

"The fit is good except a bit loose at the heel. However, the big problem was that the the small rubber circles started to fall of after 3 weeks of moderate running on trails. I have been running in Minimus for the last years but this performance is totally unacceptable from a trail shoe. Is this what they mean with '''Always in beta"? I was expecting more from New Balance!"

Yes, I recommend this product.
"I've been wearing this model since they first came on the market. They've gotten me through countless trail 50Ks, and a few races beyond 50 miles, including a 100 miler. So I know this shoe, and this edition is the best yet. I can't say enough good things about it. The new tread design is great, and the upper is reinforced in all the right places for a single track runner, dealing with rocks, and roots. I don't wear socks, and the interior of this shoe is smooth, and comfortable against the skin. I normally buy in bulk, but held off this time to check out the updates on this model, and I'm happy to report that I've already placed a second order for a couple more pairs. Beer, chocolate, and this shoe. That's all you really need."
