Product Description

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.

    I am currently stationed in Afghanistan for a deployment for the U.S. Army and had brought my 5 fingers to run around in. The army has taken a personal issue with the 5 fingers and is actually changing it's dress code for uniforms to include the exclusion of the 5 finger shoe. So I had to find a new shoe to wear in order to continue running around in my P.T.'s. I came across these in my search for a minimalist shoe and I can say that I'm pretty much happy with this shoe and will suggest for my fellow army brethren who run in minimalist shoes to buy these, especially here in Afghanistan where the roads we run on tend to be a bit rocky.

    Okay, first gonna lay out my running experience so you can judge what i write: i run about 40-50 miles a week, 50% barefoot in deep sand on the beach and the other 50% in merrell trail gloves. i bought these shoes to have something with just a little more sole for running on roads and more rigorous trails. i live on a coastal plain with no elevation changes, but run in the appalachian mountains about 3 times a month, usually on the appalachian trail of PA or surrounding foothills.

    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?

    I've got a black/orange pair of these from 2011 I think that I LOVE. Saw these on sale and figured I couldn't go wrong. Sadly I was very wrong. The bit that goes over the toe is much tighter/ less flexible so it feels tight across the top of my foot no matter how loose I make the laces. The worst part though is the bak eof the ankle. On the old model the ribbing around the heal was soft and flexible and there is a low spot wear the tendon is. On this it's much more rigid, no notch and it actually leans inward. This shoe swallows ankle socks and rubs a hole in my ankle after like 10 minutes of walking. Tiny but awful changes really ruined it.

    Since my wife and I travel Internationally a lot - I needed a travel shoe that would not take up most of the carry-on luggage (only luggage we take). I am 61 years old - and did not want to try "Five-fingers" because they look dumb. I tried a couple of barefoot shoes on - and the Minimus Trail was the perfect fit. I walked the neighborhood to break them in. Then I hiked a couple of the steep mountains with sharp rocks - around the Phoenix, AZ area.
    I loved them. Next I took them backpacking down into the Grand Canyon (on my ninth trip). I loved them. Used them for water crossing, rock-climbs, and of course the main trail. Much of the hike out of Havasu Falls is river rocks. Walking on them with the Minimus was like having my feet massaged.
    In all the hikes I have taken, I got one minimal rock bruise. I was warned by the shoe salesman that I would be in danger of rolling my ankle. I have not done so one time - although I have several times in other shoes. My only complaint (thus only 4 stars)is that the soles do not wear as well as I had hoped. I think part of it is walking on streets during break-in. The rest of the shoe is quite rugged.

    My next pair of shoes was the Minimus Life. Absolutely LOVE them. Like wearing a house slipper. They have virtually no lateral support - so are not a good trail shoe - but I have used it for trail hikes anyway. They are great - but you have to use more caution on the rocks since there is little support.

    I got these for running my local trails - mostly sand and gravel, usually 3-5 miles at a time, 3-4 days a week. So far they are holding up very well, extremely light on my feet with just enough protection from the rough rocks and thorns that are abundant here. I like them better than the FiveFingers TrekSports that I used to run in, which were something of a pain to get on quickly and would let thorns and pebbles squeeze in-between the toes on occassion.

    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.
