Comments about Mens New Balance Minimus 10v2 Trail Running Shoe:
I've been waiting to wrtie a review on this shoe because I wanted to log atleast 100 miles on it. I figured 100 miles should show any imperfections or quirks, I'll be at 200 miles by the end of the week and I have nothing to complain about. I have used this shoe on paved roads, dirt trails and the old style roads that have rocks in the asphalt, the latter being the most uncomfortable yet tolerable. When I got this shoe, I had to change my running style from heel striker to a fore foot striker because there is no support in the sole of this shoe. Changing to a fore foot striking style takes sometime to get used to and NB suggests to ease into this shoe and I agree. If you're not already a fore foot striker, I would not go more than 2-3 miles at a time until you are comfortable running on the balls of your feet. sock or sockless it's really up to you, the shoe is designed to be worn sockless however, I usually wear a sock for anything greater than 5 miles, dont get me wrong the shoe breathes well I just like the moisture wicking thin socks to aid in the process. I will come back and revise my review when I hit the 500 mile mark, I'm pretty sure the vibram sole will last that long.
Feels half size too small
Feels true to width
Was this a gift?:
Bottom Line Yes, I would recommend this to a friend
