"This shoe is very lightweight and attractive, but it was too tight across the middle of my foot. I ordered a wide fit, but either the shoe runs too small or the flap that takes the place of the tongue isn't long enough so it barely covered the opening on the top of my foot. I had to return them."

Yes, I recommend this product.
"The first version of the Minimus Zero is the best minimalist running shoe I´ve ever owned, and I ended up buying four pairs before New Balance stopped making them. The major flaw with the 1st version, however, was the extremely poor durability of the thin upper mesh, which always would start to break after just a few months of running. Version 2 of the Minimus Zero seems much more durable, and it´s overall very comfortable except for being much too snug in the midfoot, which cuts into my feet and makes my arches hurt, thus limiting me from longer runs. I really wish that New Balance would make a new Minimus Zero shoe more similar to the first version (i.e. without the narrow midfoot), but more durable. If, however, you like a bit of cushion in the mid-foot it´s a great shoe. It´s really light-weight and breathable and I love the look. Compared to the High Rez it´s a lot less hard-core and I would think it would be a great start to barefoot running."
