I don't understand this whole "Running Barefoot" thing, but I do like these shoes. I guess you would consider me more of a geek since I wear them with low profile socks (the world does not want to smell my sweaty feet). I also put an arch in them. So you wonder, "Why did she buy them". Well, the...

I bought a pair of these a few months ago for walking and jogging home and on the road w/o socks. I always had used regular running shoes, but they seemed very confining, cumbersome, and heavy, and socks were required. I loved the these at first wearing. I bring them everywhere. I love the way my foot strikes the ground in them, and as yoga person, them enable me to use my toes more in both walking and jogging. I love feeling the ground under my feet. I am a women's 6 in regular shoes and usually wear a 6.5 in NB. I ordered the 6.5 and kept it, but it is almost too small.

These are extremely comfortable shoes and offer good support. I am on my feet all day long and these are perfect! They seemed a bit snug at first but now fit quite comfortably. I would most likely purchase another pair in the future. The only negative thing I have found is the tread seems to wear very quickly, as I have had these shoes for a few weeks and the tread has worn off to a smooth texture so they do not grip as well. One would think they would make a sturdier tread since these were designed for trailing running. If I had used them for that I fear there would be no tread left at all with in a month!

I bought these shoes to introduce my feet to minimalist shoes, although I am not currently a runner. I bought them primarily for casual wear. They do have an interesting look, but they aren't bizarre enough to call attention to themselves, so from an aesthetic perspective they suit me just fine. The toe box is quite wide, as New Balance shoes are apt to be, so I have plenty of room to spread my toes out for balance. I have worn them with very thin socks and with no socks, and they're very light and comfortable. They do take some getting used to, as there is virtually no support, but after having worn them for 3-5 hours at a time about five times in the course of a couple of weeks, I'm adjusted now and quite like them. They run true to size, perhaps a hair small (half size at most).

The drop is 4mm. The Minimus 10 shoe features a 4mm heel-to-toe drop, ideal for those looking to transition to a mid-foot strike, or pursue a more minimal experience with less material between your feet and the ground.|For runners looking to transition to lower stack heights, the Minimus 1010 offers a minimal underfoot feel while providing the protective support of a traditional trail shoe, bringing you from more to minimal with every step.
