Thank you for your feedback.
Awesome shoes, have owned similar NB styles previously - great fit, comfort and all the rest.
They fit great, are extremely comfortable, and are very flexible.
My wife is very happy with her new shoe.

Product Description

Take on the trails in the New BalanceWT20v2. This women's minimal sneaker features a breathable mesh upper with synthetic overlays to provide lightweight comfort and support. The deconstructed ACTEVA midsole offers great flexibility and feathery-light cushioning. A webbing heel pull tab helps provide an easy on and off. This New Balance trail runner also has a minimal Vibram outsole for lightweight traction and durability. Go for a whole different trail running style that will blow your socks off with the New Balance WT20v2.

An entirely different approach to trail running than the traditional running shoe, the New Balance Minimus 20 Trail v2 (WT20) takes the proven versatile durability of a Vibram outsole and combines it with a fitted, extremely minimalist upper that's comfortable with or without socks. This update to the Minimus 20 Trail features a modified upper on the same comfortable sole unit as its popular counterpart, creating a near-barefoot experience on the trail.

    Size: 8.5 B(M) USColor: Pink/Grey Verified Purchase
    I read literally hundreds of Amazon reviews on how this shoe fit before ordering and had a bit of a sizing struggle so wanted to write this review in hopes that it might help someone else. :-)
    First I tried model WT20v1 (first version). I wanted to love this shoe but it ran very small in comparison to the WT20v2 model. The width and toe box are the same dimensions in both models but the length is very different. I normally wear a size 8.5 or 9 in running shoes and ordered both sizes. Couldn't even get the 8.5 on. The 9 fit but was very snug and I could have used a 9.5 (and I've never gone that large in shoes before). I also ordered both sizes in the WT20v2 and what a difference! There is roughly 3/4 inch difference in length between a size 9 in each model, with the WT20v2 being longer.. .it was actually too big for me. The size difference between the 9 in WT20v1 and a size 8.5 in the WT20v2 was around 1/4 inch, with the smaller size WT20v2 STILL being larger than the size 9 of the former shoe! I also felt like I had more "wiggle" room in the WT20v2, even though it was a half size smaller than the other model. I am better able to splay out my toes more for a more natural bare-foot style run.

    Both shoes felt basically the same, but I like the sole and traction better on the WT20v2. . it also seemed to have a bit more support. So if you like the original WT20v1, then I would suggest ordering up at least a whole size (especially if you have long toes like me. My foot is not wide, at all!) The WT20v2 is more true to size and you can order your normal shoe size and it should work out very well. I ended up going with a size 8.5 in the WT20v2 and couldn't be happier. Oh, I also got the pink shoe and the color is not quite as vibrant as what I see on the computer monitor. It is more of a raspberry pink and very pretty. I absolutely love the Minimus once you work around the funky sizing! Just my two cents.

    Size: 9.5 B(M) USColor: Pink/Grey Verified Purchase
    I tried three different pairs of New Balance barefoot running shoes. The first was a mens Minimus 10, they were a pretty good fit, but the colors and styling weren't for me. So I looked on Amazon and found the Minimus 20 and bought the same size as the Minimus 10.

    They arrived, and I tore open the box and put them on to find that they were probably 2 sizes too big! How can this happen, they are exactly the same size. They had to be returned at some expense to then get the women's version in a much smaller size. These felt a bit big too... Starting to get frustrated. Kept them, though need to wear thicker socks than normal.

    It's like the very thin fabric used to make the Minimus 20 means that you need 1.5 to 2 sizes smaller than you would normally buy. There's no bulk at all to pad out the shoe, like in a regular running shoe. So they are a bit of a strange fit for a first timer.

    Aside from that, they are super light, a little hot, have a very sticky sole that wears quickly (so I try to keep mine for trails only and not the road). They look good and feel good and I like them. There is plenty of competition out there in this market, and it'll probably pay to shop around for the best fit before committing to a particular brand.

    The second review...

    This is an addition to my first review which was written before the shoes weren't used extensively. Have the shoes been used extensively now... no. Not the shoes fault, but more mine. My sheer enthusiasm to get out and run trails with this new style of shoe, lead to an injury, and there hasn't been much running since. Needed to ease into barefoot running.

    The reason for the second review is that with only 6 times being used, the shoes developed holes on one side.

    Size: 10 B(M) USColor: Black/pink Verified Purchase
    This shoe runs a little long in my opinion but I wear socks and it is comfortable. I feel silent running in this shoe because it is very quiet against the ground. Looks good!
    My only complaint is the inside of my right shoe, on the bottom, in the toe area, I can feel the seam. I was going to return it because maybe this is a defect but I had already run 4 miles in them and they were muddy so I decided not to return them and just taped the inside of my shoe. No one will ever know and I don't feel the seam anymore. Looks good too :) I am happy.
    To get an idea what I like. My previous running shoe was the New Balance WT560 - love it!!! I still use this shoe for pavement running because it has more "cusion". I did NOT like the original WT20 at all. It was too short. I am glad I heard about them making this v2, which is longer. I am size 10 in running shoes. 9.5 in regular shoes.
    Hope this helps! It's hard to buy shoes online.

    Awesome shoes, have owned similar NB styles previously - great fit, comfort and all the rest. Unfortunately this pair were poorly made and both shoes developed holes in the upper mesh of the shoe after only 2 weeks of very light use. Very disappointed, but as always Amazon were quick to respond & assist with a refund.

    I use these shoes for cross fit and they are great. I typically wear a size 10 but had to go to 9.5 because they run large. Still roomy with 9.5.

    This shoe would be PERFECT if it wasn't for the fact that it is a size too long and the toe bed is very wide. I have read on other sites that the WT20 v1 fits more narrow and true to size. So, if your feet need shoes that run wide and long go for this model the WT20v2. It really is a shame that they do not fit me.
