I liked these and I like that they are a bit more sturdy then previous Mimimus from NB that I've owned. These can be worn in cooler weather outdoors.

    Haven't wanted to take them off. Like them so much I bought both colors. White is stunning but is white, so expect some discoloration. Worth it though. Bad knee has kept me from doing too much cross fit but can't imagine these won't provide a great platform.

    Pretty comfortable but terrible grip in the rain. They are light but not as comfortable as my previous NB

    I have been running in a true minimalist NB shoe for a couple of years and like them, the only thing I don't like at times is the lack of cushioning, the cushioning in the 1690 is just right as far as I am concerned. (I am a 6:15 a mile runner) If you like running in minimalist shoes and would like some cushioning, this running shoe is for you.

    Good shoe. Ordered one size up and the fit is good. There is support but not too stiff. Bought these for boot camp training and they do the job. The only reason I did not rate them as a five is because they are a little slippery on bare floor.

    Just delighted with these! The sizing was perfect and right-on for my foot as well. They seem to be a great combination of rigidity and firmness in the minimal footbed along with a sidewall support that makes them very comfortable. After a day in dress shoes, I can't wait to put these on for some foot therapy!
