5.0 out of 5 stars Great shoe but order half size larger, August 24, 2011

Verified Purchase(What's this?)
This review is from: New Balance Men's MX20 Minimus Training Shoe (Apparel)
Great lightweight shoe for strength training or cross fitting. I ordered half a size larger than what I would wear in a pair of asics runners and would recommend this approach for ordering the shoe. The shoe is great for squatting and dead lifting, doesn't force you onto your toes like a normal running shoe would when doing these lifts.

Thanks for your review. That is exactly the information I wanted about these shoes. I look for a minimalist shoe that keeps my feet flat for heavy lifts but still allows be to do cross training (jump rope, plyo, etc) I've been wearing Nike Free TR but since I'm due for a new pair of training shoes I want to switch up and like the looks of these better than the foot gloves.

I wonder for everyone who says they ordered a half-size larger than normal, do you normally wear New Balance? Did you order this shoe in a half-size larger than you wear OTHER New Balance shoes, or just shoes from other companies? I'm wondering because I have two other pairs of New Balance which are both 10.5 and I am wary to go higher. Thanks much!

Don't lift heavy in shoes like this, they make lifting shoes, this is for boxing/wrestling, athletic moving sports. Crossfit would be cool in these shoes because you're only hauling light weights. If you plan to lift heavy get a proper pair of lifting shoes.
