The New Balance Minimus MT10 introduces the only minimal trail running shoe that delivers the benefits of barefoot running with the protection of a lightweight trainer. This Minimus trail runner takes the proven versatile durability of a VIBRAM® outsole and combines it with a fitted, minimalist upper that's comfortable with or without socks. Inspired by nature, improved by science. Grey + Green + Black
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.

now, since i've gotten these shoes they've become my go-to shoe for the rockiest of trails. they offer just a bit more protection than the merrell trail glvoes, but still offer excellent ground feel and little sole. the 4mm raised heel is not very noticeable on trails, though it is extremely noticeable on flat roads and surfaces. overall, i do not use these on flat surfaces but definitely will go to them first for any type of large elevation change trails. my merrell's are my favorite shoe by far, but they lack a bit on extremely rugged and rocky trails when you are tired because any small rock you do not see you will feel, hard. the nbmt10 offers just a bit more protection, enough to make it noticeable.
if you decide to get these (mt10's) over the mt20's, be aware that there is a reason New Balance put out a new model of their champion minimalist shoe very shortly after it's release. namely, there is an asymmetry between the left and the right shoes. the band that stretches across the toe of the shoes comes across my feet at different points. on my left, it hits high, pulling my pinky toe in at an alarmingly uncomfortable angle. on the right, it's perfect. i googled around reviews of the mt10 and found others with the same problem, and even a blog that showed how to fix this. and ya know what? it's easy to fix. i simply cut the band at the pressure point to release the pressure, and now i have a perfectly excellent pair of shoes.
i recommend these shoes to anyone looking for a minimalist shoe for the trail, but realize that if you REALLY want a near-barefoot experience you should turn to the vibram's or to merrell trail gloves...or go barefoot :P
and if you're looking for a pair of road shoes, don't get these (as i did) for the road...wait til spring for the merrell road glove or the new line of New Balance shoes that will feature zero-drop on the heels!!
I found them to run slightly small - my normal running shoe size is 9.5, but I wear a 10 for casual shoes, boots, and most sandals. Bought these in a 9.5 at first and found them just a little too small in the toes. Returned them for a size 10 and they fit absolutely perfect.
Only negative so far was that the company who handled the purchase for Amazon (Davidson Shoes, Inc.) sent me a used pair that must have been returned to them at some point. They had obviously been repacked, with the laces all tangled and brown dirt marks inside the footbed. I would've returned these too, but they fit great and I'd been without running shoes for too long already. Just be careful who services the order for Amazon, and avoid Davidson Shoes if possible.
