Good happy medium shoe for bootcamp workouts

By Jill

Comments about Womens New Balance Minimus 40v1 Cross Training Shoe:

I needed a shoe that was great for crossfit and bootcamp style workouts but wouldn't be too much of a stretch for running. I am NOT a minimalist running shoe person so this was a big ask. These are fitting the bill so far. Have had a number of running intensive workouts and no pain or stiffness but also really happy with a bit less support for weight lifting sessions.


not as minimal as the name sounds

Comments about Womens New Balance Minimus 40v1 Cross Training Shoe:

This shoe wasn't as minimal as I'd hoped being called Minimus. I found it to be too much and returned for the 10v1 version


good for power lifting class

Comments about Womens New Balance Minimus 40v1 Cross Training Shoe:

I bought these for my power lifting class and they work great. The fit is right on and they have good support without being a bulky shoe. I probably wouldn't run far in them, but could use them in a boot camp type class that had interval-type runs in it.

Comments about Womens New Balance Minimus 40v1 Cross Training Shoe:

I've been looking for an alternative to the Reebok Nano and Nike Metcon for a while now - and I've always loved New Balance, so was very happy to find these cross trainers! Offers the same flat sole and minimalist design that works great for CrossFit workouts, but with so much more flexibility than either the Reebok or Nike. Lightweight, too - I always found the Nano very bulky feeling and much heavier.
