For years, I have basically only worn flip flops or classic slip on Vans if I wasn't wearing a tennis shoe for working out/hiking. So, I might have been a little more prepared for such a minimal shoe to begin with. I can't say everyone will as easily adapt to this kind of shoe as I have. But if you're the kind of person who's always barefoot in the house and wears flip flops all summer long, I would almost guarantee that this shoe will be perfect for you.
they're freaking cute, too :P
I recently tried to run in a traditional pair of running shoes and stopped in less than 50 feet. All of the old back, hip, and knee pain came back immediately in the old shoe, and I don't have that experience at *all* in these shoes.
Why it works: traditional running shoes have a heel in them, which cock your hips forward at an angle, just like wearing high heels. That actually displaces the burden of running from your glutes (your power muscle) to your quads and other muscles, which is why you may tire so quickly when you run. The New Balance Minimus is practically flat, which engages your muscles in a holistic way, they way your leg is supposed to work.
Be warned, you do need to heed the warning to not run long distances with these at first. You'll have achy calves, because they're finally being used when they run. Trust me, you can't imagine running another way after this.
Total kudos and thanks to the staff at New Balance for making this shoe. Love. It.
I've run in several types of running shoes, including cheapo discount shoes and $120 running shoes that were supposedly fit for my feet/arch, and nothing seemed to work. About a year ago I bought a pair of Minimus trail running shoes, which were a vast improvement for the pain, but the total lack of cushion (they were designed for running on dirt, after all) fatigued my legs too quickly from the constant energy absorption caused by running on asphalt.
And then I found these. Minimus style for my aches and pains, with just enough cushion to make road running comfortable. I can now run without stopping to walk! The shoes are incredibly lightweight, so my legs don't tire. I did get blisters on my heels the first time I wore them, but that's merely a flesh wound compared to the deeper issues I'd had with other shoes.
I threw my $120 pair of Mizunos in the trash and ordered 2 more pairs of these. And I'm never looking back!
Note: Something not noted on this website is that these are made in China, if that's the sort of thing that gets your goat. The quality seems to be fine to me.
