When it comes to running shoes in recent years, less is more. The popularity of minimalist running shoes has made the style one of the most prominent available. That approach has slowly moved in to the world of training shoes, with the latest design coming from New Balance.
The idea behind the minimalist training shoe is simple, offer all the benefits of training barefoot and add just a touch of protection, while keeping weight to an absolute minimum. The New Balance Minimus Trainer does exactly that thanks to an incredibly low profile EVA midsole and a no-sew mesh upper that will not only eliminate rubbing and irritation, but at the same time, provide a sock like fitment that is breathable and lightweight. Adorning the side of the Minimus Trainer is the unmistakable New Balance ‘N’ logo and below resides strategically placed rubber pods for increased durability.
