    These are a minimalist shoe, so they don't have a lot of support. It has a 4mm heel drop which puts you in a very neutral position for doing cross training, which is what you want; you can feel your feet. Makes for a more intimate workout. I wear these strictly in the gym for about half hour +, while i do tabata training or longer format interval training. I have been exercising for over 40 years, so i think i know my way around a pair of shoes. These are great shoes - for the gym they give great lateral support for doing footwork and hold your feet in well. They remind me of my Asics Tiger wrestling shoes i had back in the 70's, but with way better everything. I don't run in these shoes per say. I prefer my mr10v2 which are running shoes. I read some of the recent reviews that only gave the shoes 2 stars or so and they sound like "NB Haters". Probably someone from another shoe company, Merril, Adidas, Rebbok, Converse - who knows- who cares? The MX20's don't dig into my heel and such. The only negative that i would have about the shoe, but doesn't apply to MX20 is that if your foot sweats a lot and you do the barefoot thing (recommended) then the shoe might not smell so good and feel like a new slipper. Read my other review about the MR10WB2. It has the same shoes last NL-1 so the fit is nearly identical.
    suffice to say I have three NB shoes and i just looked at the MO10GT (GoreTex), which is very nice, just wish it was made local.

    The other peeve that i have and it is minor is that i now will own three Minimalist shoes and they are a bit pricey and have a limited shelf life. The cross trainers should last longer since they are worn inside. To NB's credit they have done a good job designing shoes to fit each niche and activity.

    Update: I own a previous version of this shoe. The sole coloring/pattern in particular is different. My review may not be as relevant.

    I rated 4 stars as I think this is a great shoe, but I'd like to have a little little more traction. On surfaces such as basketball courts, laminate, or smooth finish concrete, I feel this shoe lacks a little grip. It seems like the tread pattern is alright, but that the compound or surface finish of the compound isn't as sticky as I might like. The shoe is very light and airy, and I think it has enough support for the movements I intend to do with it. It provides more lateral movement stability and control than fivefigers, which I was using before this shoe. The shoe seems to fit fairly true to size, and laces up snugly on my foot. I'm only a few workouts in, but it seems like the construction will hold up well to indoor use.

    Like: Weight, stability (for what the shoe is), minimal heel to toe drop, openness and breathability, looks, balance.

    Dislike: I might like additional grip from the tread.

    recommend for: crossfit, indoor gym work

    Update:
    I've put a ~3 months of weightlifting-centric crossfit on these shoes now. They've held up well. As an additional dislike, I'd say that I feel the inward angle of and extra room/material on the toe is a bit extreme. I'm not sure if I could claim that the shoe slows my sprints, but I don't think the sole outline is quite right for running, at least for my form. The top-down view of the shoe doesn't suggest the extreme angling, but the bottom-up view (showing the sole of the shoe) does. I wouldn't remove another star, but I would revise my purchase, having this experience.

    Don't go with the hype and paid advertising by getting Reebok Nanos. Great shoes those may be, but New Balance has a winner with their MX20 shoe. It's the perfect minimalistic shoe for all types of activity.

    Let me start by saying I've had the original MX20 (version 1) for over a year now. They've been my daily/only shoe and have gone through a lot. 5 days of CrossFit WODs, running 5Ks 3 days a week, and obviously everything in between. They've held up terrific, and are still going strong, but it's time I got a new pair of shoes for dedicated for the gym. I was about to go with the MX20V1 again, but they were limited in sizes available now. That's when I saw they have this new Version 3! I haven't heard great things about the V2, so after looking at these new V3, I was sold.

    I've had them for a few weeks now. They are even more minimalistic than V1, which I'm pretty happy about. They are also more comfortable (which I figured was impossible).

    Two things to keep in mind though if comparing is that there feels to be more inner arch support than before. My feet are somewhat flat and have gotten used to not having any arch support, so it took some time for my feet to adapt to the higher inner arch padding on the inside sole padding. Lastly, there is no longer a heel/back loop for pulling the heel up when putting the shoes on. This is what I miss the most, as I used it all the time on the V1.

    The colors and quality are great too, even though the cutting of the pieces around the lace grommets seem a bit rough. Take a look at the photos I uploaded to see a few comparisons between these V3 versus the original V1. Do yourself a favor and get a pair of these!

    FYI -- I usually run an 11.5 in most shoes, but with these and Nike shoes I am a size 12.
