I bought these trainers as I wanted to try a minimal style shoe. My regular road trainers are the Adidas Adistar boost and although you definitely notice much less cushioning in the sole with these shoes, they are by no means harsh on your feet. Extremely lightweight and I find ventilation good. The fit is slightly wide compared to my Adidas but not so much so that I'd say I needed a smaller size. Overall, I am very pleased with these trainers and at £40 they are excellent value for money in my opinion. Only slight pointer is I doubt i'll use these for runs any longer than 10k but that's just me being a little injury prone and needing more cushioning for longer distance, not a downfall of the shoe.

I recently purchased these shoes and they're great! Firstly I would like to point out the weight of the shoes, they're crazy light! I couldn't find any hints as to the weight of the shoes so I did some research-the shoes are 4oz each (I think). Moreover the extraordinary weight of the shoes make them a pleasure to wear! The mesh fits perfectly, covering each foot like a glove.Finally is the aesthetics of the shoe. I was initially worried about the vulgarity of the bright green/yellow but once worn in real life, the large N and the light blue laces fix everything! Sure you'll still be wearing a bright pair of shoes but they look stylish so its fine! Overall these are my new favourite running shoes and with many compliments from others I can safely say that these are a great buy!

Overall I really like this shoe. The one gripe I have is that the hardwearing portion of the sole does not cover the inside section of the heel. I've found that this section is really squashing down, although the shoe promotes forefoot running.

Great addition to my MT10 & MO10 17 April 2013
By A Mccollough - Published on
Colour Name: Neon Yellow with BlueSize: 9 UK Verified Purchase
I have now put over 100 miles on these and wanted to wait till then to give a review.

First off going from the New Balance website they have a "see how it fits" guide. Since I have been running in MT10's and MO10's I plugged those into the calculator and it indicated I should go a half size larger. This at least in my case is not correct. It is almost to the point of being too big, but since I have already run in them I couldn't send them back but I wanted to make everyone aware that I believe you should get whatever your actual size is and not a half size larger.

Alright onto the shoe. As I said before I am coming from the 4mm drop trail shoe. I finally decided to get a set of road shoes since most of my running is on cement and asphalt. I was also having problems with my IT band on my left knee and figured my current shoes had over 800 miles on them so it was time to get a new set.

Surprising amount of cushion for a minimal shoe
Super light
I love the soles of these shoes, I feel like I could trail run in them too

I lost the loop on the heel, I used this to attach them to the outside of my gym bag

I am not sold on the new tongue yet but it might grow on me
Not for wet running, you WILL get wet feet (not really a problem though)
As I said before, get your true size not a half size larger per New Balance's website.

Overall these are great summer/fall shoe. I am going to have to get something different for the winter, I may get another pair of MO10's or the MT1010's.

These are my goto running shoes. 23 Nov. 2013
By Mitchell Kasdin - Published on
Surprisingly these shoes fit wide and the last (NL1) is cut for an american arch with wider feet. I typically wear a EE shoe and with NB i wear a 8 1/2 D. The toe box gives you ample room for your toes to splay while striking (touching) the forefoot-mid foot. These shoes are minimalist shoes, they don't offer a lot of cushion, so it takes some time to transition. I would say these shoes are a semi-advanced running shoe - if you are accustomed to heel striking or a shoe with a lot of heel cushion and forward lean then these shoes might take time to adjust.

two more points - The shoes are just a tool - like a hammer, what is more important is your technique (injury free). So don't get too hung up on this brand or that brand. Buy something that fits you well and feels comfortable. It should feel snug around the foot and room in the toe box. Do yourself a favor and run without socks, weather permitting.

Pros - light, vibram sole, breathes, comfortable, burrito tongue, sockless, good ground feel, 4mm heel drop, enough cushion easy to get on. i have worn them on basic trails in Cambria, CA - nothing rocky just hard pack clay and they were just fine. They pack down flat and take up little space - so on the motorcycle they are easy to bring along and weigh nothing. Typically i run with them on the asphalt-pavement around SM and West LA.

Cons - i wear them 3 times plus a week and my average run is around 2 miles. My feet sweat in them so they no longer have that "new car smell and feel compared to my MX20". they feely a bit yucky. Probably time to give them a wash.

- Bit on the pricey side.
- I wear them a lot and after about 3 months and 200 -300 miles they are starting to show some wear. small tear and the soles are slightly wearing. In all fairness though expect about 400 -500 miles from a pair of minimalist shoes. I am a tight wad so i like to squeeze every mile out of the shoe. Probably need to get a second pair of Minimus shoes to keep the only pair from wearing out.

What i found useful is looking at some Youtube video - "good running form" "forefoot and mid foot strike" watch Vo2maxProductions - Sage Canady "Proper Running Technique: Running Form Tips and Drills" and "Natural running form" - he does a very good job breaking down running technique which should help you run further, longer and less injuries.He has about 151 videos - yep i watched them all. What he goes over is more than the basics, so try not to overindulge to the point where you try to mimic a world class runner after you just broke in the shoes. Break it down so you work on 1 or two things at a time and don't get frustrated or try too hard.

As an aside - during the summer i ran on the beach barefoot, i found that after several on-off days that i ran better on the pavement. My foot muscles were noticeably stronger and ditto for the ligaments and tendons. It translated to an easier workout with the MR10 sneaker. Running in wet sand, slight depression and deep, dry sand where your foot sinks in 6"+ requires a lot of stamina, and after an hour of running (work up to it) it will help build your overall strength and cardio. I might have only ran 2-3 miles, but throw in dodging the incoming surf, rocks alternating on deep loose sand and wet pack and it translates into a good workout. I am close to sea level so no altitude training for me. (

Lastly, I ran in the vibram five fingers before and never really took to the 5 fingers - cool concept, just not enough of the good stuff to make it suitable for my taste.

Great fit and feel, but experienced extreme sole wear on first run 23 Jan. 2014
By Brian Knauss - Published on
Colour Name: Neon Yellow with BlueSize: 9.5 UK Verified Purchase
After a long search for a minimal running shoe at a reasonable cost and great fit/feel, I landed with the Minimus MR10v2. I was impressed with the light weight and how it conformed nicely to my foot. There was an EVA piece from the sole that felt like it was jabbing into my arch, but didn't feel any discomfort while running. It felt as if the EVA softened up as I went. Now to the fatal issue with these shoes: after one 3 mile run, there was extreme wear on the sole. It looks like someone took a belt sander to the toe area. The non-Vibram portion is a very cheap and soft EVA that you expect on a a $5 pair of flip flops. At this rate, I would need to replace these shoes within the first month or two. This was my first, and last, experience with New Balance and was extremely disappointed with the cheap construction from this highly regarded brand.

The perfect road companion for the 10v2 Trails 20 Mar. 2014
By CLYDE - Published on
Colour Name: Neon Yellow with BlueSize: 10 UK Verified Purchase
I have to say I absolutely love these shoes for running on the road. I have been using the New Balance 10v2 Trail shoes for about a year now and they still run like new. However, those shoes I only generally use for off road trail runs. My experiences with them on pavement has been decent but I didn't want to wear them down too fast.

I have been experimenting with a pair of Merrell Road Gloves for the past few months (zero drop shoes) for a hard ball short distance shoe. When I say short distance I mean less than 5 miles on a run. Anyway, the impact on my shins over the miles leaves me with an ache that lasts for hours. I am a mid foot striker but when I get fatigued I can fall back on bad form and heel strike. I finally had enough of went to my local shoe store to buy another pair of Merrell's. These had a bit more cushion in the heel while still being light weight. However, the ache remained and I never had an ache with my trusty 10v2 Trail shoes.

I finally went on Amazon and looked around for a 4mm drop shoe like my trail and stumped upon the MR10v2. These shoes are great! They feel just like the 10v2 Trails with more padding to take the sting out of long runs. They are super light and I love the neon yellow color. I should have just stuck with my favorite shoe brand and never tested the waters in hindsight but at least I learned something. If you love the 10v2 Trails do yourself a favor and just get these shoes in the same size. You won't regret it.

Stylin & Smilin: waited & waited & surprise! ?A New Balance throwback 3 Feb. 2014
By 69isfine. - Published on
Verified Purchase
There was a time I could replace my New Balance with the same or similar offering & all was just rigt. Then they droped the height of the 88x basketball shoes by "just a little" but just enough to reduce the stability of the product-- I have been forced to try other brands & currently have a pair of white, limited edition 88x tucked in my gym bag limited to my workout use...
The color of this Minimus Running shoe seemed to be a possible for the teenager at our house, as the christmas tree was coming down ..."the island of forgotten gifts"... had to be cleared away. the teenage recipient reluctantly tried these on
!!!BAM!!!POP!! Kudos for comfort. loves the color, loves the style, & the 2E width fit just right.
This was the New Balance that I figured was lost a few years ago; hopefully this ushers in the return of New Balance to the top of my shopping list, but the 3-4 pairs of "not so Stabil" not as high, HIGHTOPS, & tactical shoes returned due to fit, finish, & support deficiencies gives reason to temper my enthusiasm about the entire product line
