The New Balance Minimus WT20 Trail Running 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 edition of the Minimus Trail features a modified upper on the same comfortable sole unit as its popular counterpart the WT10, creating a near-barefoot experience on the trail.. Color: Black + Pink
FIT: Designed to be worn barefoot, the Minimus shoes provide a tight fit and snug slipper-like feel. Many of our customers order a half size larger, especially when they intend to wear socks.
CAUTION: This product should be introduced slowly into a running exercise routine. New Balance recommends limiting initial use to 10% of overall running workouts and very gradually increasing time and distance.

Even though I'm no shoe or sneaker expert, I've purchased a fair share of them in my lifetime. I've never written a review for any shoes before now. I suppose it's because I've owned Converse, Puma, Nike and many other New Balance shoes before, but NONE even come close to the New Balance WT20 Trail Minimus shoes. Certainly these are the most comfortable sneakers I've ever worn, even though I've only owned them for exactly one week. I wish these shoes would've been available while I was in Army basic training.
Pros: Weight: very light shoe without compromising durability or support. Traction: Walking or running, traction is pretty nice. Fit: very comfortable, breathable material, cushions feet without crowding, also provides arch support. In my experience, low profile New Balance shoes can sometimes run a bit more narrow than usual so I purchased this shoe in WIDE. I'm very glad that I did. Sole: Cushions the impact while walking or running which is a huge plus for me. Shoelaces: Thin, non-slip laces are a plus. It keeps you from having to stop mid-run or mid-walk to tie your shoes over again. I was caught in a thunderstorm while wearing these shoes and because of how delicate the shoes feel, I was worried they'd get damaged. Not at all. The shoes and laces dried up quicker than I imagined and they looked just as new. These shoes are rugged without looking or feeling bulky. Not to mention that they look pretty great, too.
My only con about these shoes has nothing to do with the actual shoe itself, but the company. Just like many other sneaker companies, the amount of colors for women's shoes are limited.Read more ›
Hopefully more experienced minimalist runners will also rate these, however for me they feel fantastic. I could have ran five miles in them, no problem!
These run true to size and can be worn with or without socks. I wish the color selection for women was better though.
I LOVE this shoe though-- and I run maybe 15 miles a week in it (the rest of my mileage I continue to log in my frees)--even on streets and sidewalks. It's a step closer to barefoot on the minimalist scale compared to a shoe like the free-- so, buyer beware you DO have to strengthen your calves/shins/ankles before you can rack up too many miles in them, or you risk stress fractures.
Overall, I love the NB WT20 because it's close-ish to a 5finger feel (it does have a vibram sole, which I like a lot), with the added appeal of not making me look like a major tool on my run (sorry 5finger lovers....)
As a quick sidenote, I'm also currently rehabbing a badly sprained ankle; I do wear a brace when I run in these (and my frees, for that matter). Shockingly, these shoes were the only shoes that haven't left my ankle in serious post-run pain.

Its a minimalist shoe, so don't expect great support. They do give you more support than the toe shoes. These run at least a half size small. I always go a size up.Published 7 months ago by eekaboig
