Thank you for your feedback.
The fit is as expected since I owned the same Minimus but in the urban grey camo.
BUT, I'm reviewing the MT1010's, and I was very happy to find that they also fit like a glove with more tread.
They fit great and was a perfect purchase.

    See 12 week update below:

    I'm transitioning to minimalist running and these shoes meet the next requirement in my development. For the last year and a half I've been running in Brook Cascadias (size 11.5). About 6 months ago I started running in the Newton trail shoe (size 11), and continue rotating with the Cascadias. During this time I've been working on the forefoot and mid-foot strike stride. I felt I was getting it down pretty good and then I went on my first run with the 1010's (size 11.5).

    I was a loud clopping plodder in the Cascadias and Newtons. Now I'm running much quieter with the 1010's.

    The shoes are light. I'm starting to experience the unfettered feel of barefoot running I didn't get with the heavier Cascadias and Newtons. At the same time I'm feeling weakness in my stride as I stroke through and lift my foot from the ground. Before I had the rebound from the heel cushion on the Cascadias and from the forefoot lugs on the Newtons to help propel me forward. That's gone and forward propulsion is all me now. It will take awhile to build up the required strength in my calves and quads for this style of running. I'll continue rotating the three pairs of shoes.

    The 1010's provide enough protection from rocks and stabbing sticks that I don't feel vulnerable. That's not to say that occasionally a "chingoncito" (a naughty pebble for you non Caballo Blanco fans) doesn't nip me. I have to be present in the run and be aware of where I am putting my feet. I had one rock nip me behind the big toe and it felt like when I hit my funny bone but in the toe. I've also had my feet flex in ways (sometimes not comfortable ways)as I cross large stones that never occured when I was wearing the beefier running shoes.

    I was excited when I saw these shoes coming out. I've been in the army for 5 years now and, for someone with wide feet, it's difficult to find a fun running shoe. This looked to be that and stylish as well. It used to be the rule that running shoes never ran wide and the only ones that did were the stiff ulta-supportive sneakers (if you have wide feet, you know what I'm talking about). Now- this is the second pair of Minimus shoes I've owned. I've got a pair of the MT00s but I needed something with a bit more support and the MT00s have issues of their own but I was impressed enough to buy them.

    The shoes are light-weight and enjoyable to run in. They also look pretty darn sharp. They are noticeably more supportive than the MT00s and seemed like a good transition shoe to minimal running.

    Unfortunately, I'm sorely disappointed with the durability of the shoe. After owning these for less than two months with an average of only 10-15 miles a week (ie. I ONLY wear them when I'm running) and all on paved trails, the fabric is pulling apart right around the head of my fifth metatarsal. It's not a tear - its looks like the fabric could not handle the stress and started to separate. They still look brand-new but the quality of the fabric seems poor. If you have wide feet like me, I'd recommend saving some cash and looking somewhere else.

    i have normal feet (i think) with medium width and these felt perfect out of the box. just tight enough with room up front in the toe area so that my feet don't feel cramped and constricted. i was shocked how good they felt and the soles were nicely protecting me from anything on the ground. the traction is superb as is the breathability. feather light, the materials seem perfectly fit for a minimalistic shoe. of course as you read other reviews across the web-o-sphere you will find MANY people have problems with the upper material ripping out after 80 to 100 miles of running. i know this sounds strange but i bought these shoes to wear during the hot summer months, near water and on trails as 'every day' kick around summer outdoor shoes. i own countless sandals but i wanted something more substantial for short hikes, rocky beaches and other situations that call for a good bottom with more upper support. these things are built wonderfully for these situations and i bought them to wear without socks. for running i hear they are great (for a while), but for everyday outdoor shoes they should last for a long long time. the looks are great really. the colors are a bit bright but nothing too crazy, they look good without socks as well.. for MY needs they are definitely 5 star for comfort, durability, looks and construction.

    The feel and comfort of this shoe is exellent and the sole has a very good grip except for the most slippery rocks. The rock plate really does it's job too.
    Like other people describe, the upper mesh on this shoe is not durable at all. It is like it can't take the stress. It tears apart right over the arc on the inside of the shoe. I had to return my first pair after one month and about 80 miles, mostly on technical trails. Super customer service form Amazon, shipping a new pair of shoes within 24 hours of my complaint. Now, about 6 weeks and 70 miles with my new shoes (on roads this time), the upper mesh has again teared apart.
    I really hope NB will fix this problem on a later model of this shoe. Then I will deifinately buy it again.
