Product Description

Product Description

The NB Road Minimus offers a closer to barefoot experience with a dramatically lower heel to midfoot drop than traditional running shoes. This shoe combines a zero heel drop with a revlite midsole and vibram outsole, meaning you get the barefoot experience with all the protection of a lightweight trainer, all at a great price.

5.0 out of 5 stars Perfect Minimalist Shoe 15 Sep 2012
Having tried a combination of barefoot style shoes I opted for these 6 months ago. They've been perfect for road running and adapting to the barefoot style of running. Extremely lightweight with no internal seams to rub your feet you hardly notice that they are there. Used to great effect on the Hard as Snails 10k this year - a cross country hill and trail race as conditions were dry. BUT they aren't suited to trail running when conditions are wet as there's really no grip ( they are road shoes after all).

If buying them, do be sure to realise that you'll need to completely reevaluate and indeed change your running style and expect tight calves as you adapt your style. However the benefits for me have been immense - a remedy to ongoing knee and Achilles problems, an easier and more natural running style and as a results more enjoyment and many more miles run.

5.0 out of 5 stars The best running shoes I've ever owned 17 Feb 2012
By Tom
Colour Name:Red/black|Size Name:9.5 UK D
A quick google for 'New Balance Minimus Road review' turns up numerous hits where these shoes are reviewed in a lot more detail than I'll go into here---but the ones I've read have rated them highly (you might want to confirm this for yourself, though.)

I purchased these shoes because running had become painful for me as I (gradually) increased the distance of my runs. After researching on the Internet, I bought into the idea that the cause of this pain might be the 'unnatural' heel-striking action which is encouraged by most modern, wedge-shaped running shoes on the market. In my search for alternatives, I came across 'water shoes'* (simple shoes with a flat sole that are designed to be worn to the beach.) I was running in these for some time, and though initially the transition to a midfoot/forefoot strike caused my calves to ache and burn for days afterwards, they soon adapted and I've been running without pain ever since.

My cheap water shoes didn't last for many miles, however, so I decided to replace them with a specialist product, namely these Minimus Road shoes from New Balance. The comfort and support is fantastic (they're so comfortable, in fact, that I no longer wear socks on my runs, so my toes are free to roam.) They're increadibly light. They appear to be durable and well-constructed (though time will tell: I've only put ~50km on them to this point.) And, as an added bonus, they look great too.

I'm so happy with my purchase; they've helped to make running enjoyable for me. I can't recommend them highly enough.

* Water Shoes are cheap. I'd recommend buying a pair if you're considering transitioning to a thin-soled, zero-drop shoe. If you like them (or rather, if you like the running form that they encourage), you can decide to spend more money on a specialist product. You don't get much change from 70 with NB's Minimus Road, so make sure they are what you're looking for before you buy them...

5.0 out of 5 stars My favourite minimal shoe 5 May 2013
Colour Name:Red/black| Size Name:10 UK D|Verified Purchase
An excellent minimal trainer - 12mm cushion to give a little protection from the road and a 0mm drop (same height at the heel as the midfoot).

I have put over 200 miles (at 5km - 20km distances) on my pair and they are still going strong. The upper is very comfortable and the toebox is nice and wide.

They do look a little pointy at the front, but I'm just nitpicking.

Recommend them to anyone looking for a more minimal trainer for road use.

4.0 out of 5 stars A great minimal running shoe 17 Dec 2012
Verified Purchase
Recently some places have been banging on and on about minimalist running/walking. I jumped on the bandwagon a while ago and am very happy sat up here still, thank you very much.

These shoes are very light and very bright, I like the way they look a lot. I've done a lot of running in them now, on and off road, although the tread on the sole is not great for off road excursions, and I have to say they're very good. I've not gone further than about 12 miles at a time in them, although I reckon that will change, but they've held up well and the only downside is that they're far from waterproof. But then, I'd much rather run in these than wellies.

So there.

5.0 out of 5 stars New Balance Men's MR00RB Red/Black Trainer 11 Nov 2012
Colour Name:Red/black| Size Name:8 UK D|Verified Purchase
Got these as I was finding it difficult to find a regular pair of trainers that felt natural to my running style. I have used these mainly indoors on a treadmill and have been very happy with the fit and form of the shoe. For me it didn't take long to get used to the low profile design.
