Our most minimal road shoe, the Minimus Zero v2 is quite aptly named. The more natural Minimus design features the ultra-light support and flexibility of a one-piece FantomFit upper, the responsive cushioning of a REVlite midsole, the superior traction of a Vibram® outsole and odor-resistant materials. If you’re looking for a barefoot-inspired running experience in a shoe that can withstand the ruggedness of the road, look no further than the Minimus Zero v2.

    Excellent minimalist shoe through 600 miles of training.

    "This is my second pair of minimalist shoes, both of which were from New Balance. I wore this pair exclusively through 18 weeks of marathon training averaging 40-50 miles per week. Even though the shoe may look delicate, they really stood up to the wear of 6x per week running. The vibram sole just lasts forever! I swear they must make the sole out of wolverine hide. I just came to the site to buy another pair and decided to add my favorable review for this shoe. Make sure you buy the 2E if you have wide feet."

    Bulky and Unlike original

    6/4/14 by | New York, NY

    • Used Product For: 2-4 weeks

    "This shoe is terrible. The shoe itself is bulky and feels very wide. Also, I am not a fan of the material, it feels very cheap and can see blisters arising everywhere if you wear them without socks. Unfortunately they no longer make the Minimus Road 00, the NB 1600s or the NB 1400s. I'm gonna have to go back to the Nike Zoom Streak which are light weight and great for racing."

    Not as good as the original

    "I'm not sure why NB changed the structure of this wonderful shoe (the first version). The first version of this shoe was the best shoe I've ever purchased, and I wish I had bought 5 more pairs. The new version is just horrible to run with since the sole of the shoe now feels tougher. Why would NB change this, I don't know, but it ruined the experience of running "barefoot" like. Now I end up looking for the first version online...if I can find it. Last year I ran over 600 miles with the first version. We're in mid year, and I barely ran 180 miles with the new version...simply impossible. BRING BACK THE FIRST VERSION.... PLEASE!!"

    Best Running Shoe I Have Ever Owned

    • Used Product For: 2-4 weeks

    Yes, I recommend this product.

    "I have been running competitively for about 3 years now and I this is by far the greatest minimus shoe I have owned. I have had the zero v2s for about three weeks now and the transfer from the minimus trial to this was very quick and easy. This shoe keeps you on your forefoot and toes and helps you have good running form. Very lightweight and the best barefoot shoe out there. Fits comfy as well. :D"
