    Minimus 20v5 Trainer

    "Not very impressed with this shoe. I have a pair of New Balance MX20GL4 thatI have been wearing since Oct '15 and I love them. The 20v5 is difficult to get on and also difficult to get properly snug with the design of the eyelets and no tongue. The front of the shoe also creases from the lacing to the toe, my other pair does not. I wish I would have tried them on at a store before buying on-line. It is a good looking shoe but that's about it."

    Poor Fit

    7/18/16 by | Stovall, NC

    Used Product For: less than 2 weeks

    "These shoes don't live up to the New Balance reputation at all. Most New Balance shoes are extremely comfortable and fit very well. These shoes, however, are a very odd cut, and they run much too wide and too loose. The fit is extremely uncomfortable, to the point that your feet slide all over inside the shoes when you attempt to walk."

    Tongue digs into the top of my foot

    7/4/16 by | Redwood City, CA

    Used Product For: 4-6 weeks

    "I have had two prior models of Minimus shoes and they were very comfortable. This latest iteration is not. The "burrito" tongue produces a ridge across the top of the foot that is quite uncomfortable. I gave it a few weeks wear before reviewing to see if that got better, but unfortunately it has not. In addition there is less mesh on this version so it runs a bit hotter than earlier versions. I do wish NB wouldn't keep messing with designs that are perfectly functional."

    Yes, I recommend this product.

    "About 4 years ago i started wearing minimus and I have stayed loyal ever since. I cant say enough about how great these shoes are. I absolutely LOVE weight training and running in these shoes. I love feeling the ground underneath me. Also, the colors are SO rich. They look WAY better in person than on the computer. I got the deep blue and orange and I getting compliments left and right. These shoes are extremely durable also. Every year it seems the Minimus line gets better and better. I simply love these shoes, how they feel, and how they look."
