Most Helpful 5-Star Review
Verified Buyer Reviewed by DavesDee from California coast on Sunday, July 27, 2014As the name suggests, the Minimus is like wearing nothing. BTW, I am not a runner.
I walk approximately 4 to 5 miles a day on uneven surfaces and trails, as a required part of my job. (I walk dogs almost every day.)
The soles are fairly thin, you will feel pebbles, etc. I have hammertoes and these shoes reduce the discomfort I feel in the top end of my toes and foot. The body of the shoe is mesh.
This is my third purchase; size does tend to run small by about a half.
Reviewed by PuddleSplasherPDX from Oregon on Thursday, March 6, 2014I have a pair of barefoot Merrells and love them so when I saw these I thought they'd be a great addition to my wardrobe, they are indeed! I wear these shoes for Jazzercise and really like them. I usually wear them with light socks as I prefer just a little more moisture wicking and padding. I also got a chance to wear them hiking on vacation this winter and they were great for hiking volcanic terrain as you can feel the ground under you, without being uncomfortable. I usually wear a 9 - 9 1/2 and the 9 works well for me in these shoes. While a little snug at first, they do stretch and form to your foot as you wear them. – A great shoe!
Reviewed by ok from va on Thursday, December 26, 2013these are great looking shoes. they are comfortable and there's room for an arch support for long hikes or walks. I'm looking forward to wearing them at work too. they will be great for travel because of their light weight
Reviewed by Mini Minimus from Knoxville, TN on Sunday, July 28, 2013I 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.
Reviewed by Mary Beth from NM on Saturday, July 6, 2013Even though I ordered a wide, the strap across the widest part of the food was too tight. This was my first pair of minimalists so I was disappointed that the design was so restrictive.
Question & Answer

“Do you give up cushioning in 'barefoot' or minimal running shoes? What is the benefit of this type of running shoe? I had surgery to remove torn cartilage in one of my knees a year ago and I worry about impact reduction.
Also, can light socks be worn with these? My feet sweat a lot and I prefer socks.”
You will be giving up cushioning. Here is a link to an article about the advantages and disadvantages of minimalist running shoes. This article will give you some insight to whether minimalist running shoes are for you. http://www.therunningadvisor.com/minimalist-running-shoes.html
“Do these have good traction on uneven terrain? I crushed my heel 2 years ago and I have limited balance flexibility in my foot. My foot doesn't pivot right to left when walking on uneven terrain. I need a shoe that provides good traction.”
The Minimal Vibram® outsole for lightweight will good traction and durability.
“What is the drop from fore heel to toe. Also what is the difference between these and the WT110?”
The drop is 4mm.

“Do these run true to size? I know other NB products require that you size up.|Thanks”
According to our fit models these shoes are running true to size and width.
