Product Description

The New Balance Minimus WT20 Trail Running takes the proven versatile durability of a Vibram® outsole and combines it with a fitted, extremely minimalist upper that's comfortable with or without socks. This edition of the Minimus Trail features a modified upper on the same comfortable sole unit as its popular counterpart the WT10, creating a near-barefoot experience on the trail.. Color: Black + Pink

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.

    ABSOLUTELY LOVE THESE SHOES!!!

    Even though I'm no shoe or sneaker expert, I've purchased a fair share of them in my lifetime. I've never written a review for any shoes before now. I suppose it's because I've owned Converse, Puma, Nike and many other New Balance shoes before, but NONE even come close to the New Balance WT20 Trail Minimus shoes. Certainly these are the most comfortable sneakers I've ever worn, even though I've only owned them for exactly one week. I wish these shoes would've been available while I was in Army basic training.

    Pros: Weight: very light shoe without compromising durability or support. Traction: Walking or running, traction is pretty nice. Fit: very comfortable, breathable material, cushions feet without crowding, also provides arch support. In my experience, low profile New Balance shoes can sometimes run a bit more narrow than usual so I purchased this shoe in WIDE. I'm very glad that I did. Sole: Cushions the impact while walking or running which is a huge plus for me. Shoelaces: Thin, non-slip laces are a plus. It keeps you from having to stop mid-run or mid-walk to tie your shoes over again. I was caught in a thunderstorm while wearing these shoes and because of how delicate the shoes feel, I was worried they'd get damaged. Not at all. The shoes and laces dried up quicker than I imagined and they looked just as new. These shoes are rugged without looking or feeling bulky. Not to mention that they look pretty great, too.

    Cons: None.

    My only con about these shoes has nothing to do with the actual shoe itself, but the company. Just like many other sneaker companies, the amount of colors for women's shoes are limited.

    I purchased these after my fiance had bought a men's pair. I've been wanting to try the minimalist running thing for a while but the 5 Finger shoes just creeped me out. lol I settled on these because not only are they good looking shoes (they look totally fine with jeans or yoga pants too!) but I've been wanting to get more into running. I started out slow in these (as is recommended) because it completely changes the way you're probably used to walking/running. I built up to do some trail running with the dogs and they are so great! I found the trails/paths easier to run on than pavement with these. If you're running correctly in them you should feel burn in your calves especially. For me I also felt it in my upper hamstrings and butt (woot!). I have been really happy with them and I've had them for about a month and a half. I highly recommend these as long as you're willing to start out a little slow because you can really mess up your tendons if you continue landing on your heel in these (there's virtually no cushioning). I will probably be buying another pair when I need it.

    These run true to size and can be worn with or without socks. I wish the color selection for women was better though.

    First pair of shoes (athletic or otherwise) I have purchased that I've had no blisters or rubbing the first time I've worn them. I'm new to minimalist running so I only ran a mile in them and walked a mile-however that was enough to sell me on them. I have heard there's a band that cases them to run narrow-I have narrow feet so I can see how that might bother someone. One of the shoelaces was frayed but a five minute call to New Balance and they had replacements in the mail-not a minus for the shoe but a big plus to New Balance customer service. The are a little more light dove gray than white-they seem a lot brighter in the picture. I like the actual color better.

    Hopefully more experienced minimalist runners will also rate these, however for me they feel fantastic. I could have ran five miles in them, no problem!

    I bought these shoes for crossfit and they're amazing! They work great for the transition from weightlifting to running to lunges to whatever the trainers throw at us. They are comfortable and lightweight. I love them and highly recommend them to anyone doing crossfit.

    I'm a woman in my 60th year and have always worn expensive, supportive shoes and hiking boots. Although I've enjoyed hiking for most of my adult life, (ie: Grand Canyon rim to rim) in recent years I've become more and more prone to foot injuries, especially plantar fasciitis and sore bones in my feet. My daughter-in-law suggested I try the Trail Minimus shoes. I was skeptical but desperate, so I ordered a pair. For six weeks I've been hiking increasing distances (3-5 miles) on rugged trails in the desert and have no pain whatsoever. The shoes are incredibly comfortable. Because the soft soles allow my feet to feel the ground and rocks I step on, I instinctively step more softly and flex/adjust my foot to each new step, rather than pounding the ground on the same sore spots of my feet as I do with regular New Balance shoes. At the same time, I also purchased a BOSU Sport 55cm trainer which is fantastic for stretching and exercising my feet and calves which I believe is also helping my feet become stronger and less prone to injury.
