An entirely different approach to trail running than the traditional running shoe, the New Balance Minimus Trail 20 (WT20) 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 companion to the Minimus Trail 10 features a modified upper on the same comfortable sole unit as its popular counterpart, creating a near-barefoot experience on the trail.
NB Minimus is a whole new approach to footwear, a place on the spectrum from barefoot running to the traditional maximum-cushioning running shoe. Inspired by Good Form Running and designed to be worn with or without socks. With only a 4mm drop from heel to toe, as little as a third of that of a traditional running shoe, the NB Minimus collection holds a world of discovery for neutral runners; additionally, Good Form Running teaches methods of improvement for those seeking to conquer gait issues.
