First Impression: Amazingly lightweight!
For those athletes out there who love a “barefoot” feel, this shoe is an ideal fit. Weighing in at only 6-7 onces, the New Balance Minimus TR is a super light trainer with tons of flex. Boasting a zero drop along with the close proximity to the ground, your feet feel stable when lifting heavier.
And no need to be delicate with the shoe, the upper built to last.
Overall, this shoe lives up to its minimalist name and is a great option for those who are in search of a lightweight flexible trainer.
First Impression: Feels great, roomy and breathable toe-box. Lightweight and sturdy.
I love this shoe. Not only is it lighter weight than the Nano and Metcon but it also offers up a good amount of cushion to get you through short runs. The upper is made out of a stretchy knit fabric that creates two experiences for your feet: 1) your feet don’t feel claustrophobic, toes have space to move, and 2) it’s super breathable – your feet stay cool during workouts.
It's got a 4mm drop and the shoe’s platform is sturdy enough to go heavy on your lifts.
Overall, I think this is the best under-the-radar shoe and an excellent option for any and all workouts.
