Absolutely, love this shoe. I'm 44 years old and run about 40 miles/week. Last year my knees started to really hurt after my runs. I tried shoes with more cushioning, But they did not work. I then changed my stride and tried a pair of transitional shoes (I really wanted to try the minimalist shoe). I was truly skeptical of this attempt to solve my problem, but to my utter amazement, I can run long distances in these shoes with no pain at all! After 25 years of running I have found my shoe. So far I have run on the pavement and on the trials. Theses shoes can handle it all. There is not much cushioning, so perhaps rocky terrain might be painful, but I will at least try them. Since it's cold out, I have been running with thin socks, but will drop the socks in the warm weather. Again I LOVE theses shoes!

Love this shoe
I run about 20 miles/week, but I don't run in this shoe. I've been using it daily to walk and weight train. My feet have never felt stronger or healthier since I started wearing these. They are surprisingly so comfortable and they feel so natural. The only downside is that my feet get wet quickly in wet weather b/c water seeps in the bottoms, but that is rarely an issue. I love the lightweight feel of this shoe and how flexible my foot is in it. PLEASE DON'T "UPDATE" THIS SHOE AND MAKE IT WORTHLESS--IT IS WONDERFUL THE WAY IT IS!!!! These shoes have been like medicine to my aching feet.
Now I enjoy running...
I have severe arthritis in my feet after a long career as a dancer. I have since switched to distance running and sadly could not find a sneaker to help ease the pain in my feet. Then my husband gave me these sneakers as a gift and now I enjoy running so much! I actually look forward to running and have now started training for a half. All due to the wonderful comfort of these sneakers. I just ordered another pair. BUT - I like to support New Balance since they are usually made in the USA - but these say made in Vietnam - my only gripe!!
best running shoe-
I wear these shoes as much as I can- they are the most comfortable shoes I own (besides sandals) I have a very wide foot in the toe area and wide shoes were always too constrictive in the toe box while too big in the heel area. These are the first shoes I have owned (68 yr old female) that I can wear and not get tingly, prickly feelings in my feet at night. I also do not have to immediately remove my shoes after exercising because my feet ache.
Finally Found My Shoe!
I started gradually working towards running in minimalist shoes over a year ago. I've tried several different minimalist shoes that for various reasons just didn't work for me on the roads. Then I found these. Love at first run. The toe box is roomy, and they were comfortable right out of the box. I'll be running a half in July and the Portland Marathon in October in these babies for sure. (I got the blue/pink and love the sassy colors!)
Less is more: love the Minimus!!
After wearing Nike Frees for the past couple years I decided to try something new! I have a wide toe box so it can be a challenge to find the perfect running shoe! The New Balance Minimus gives me the space needed for a comfortable fit!
This might be a great shoe. Unfortunately I wear orthotics and these shoes have a sewn in cushion, wore them one time with orthotics and ended up with a stress fracture. Usually get great online help, but not this time.
