    Have run problem free in this shoe for a year and a half (about 800 miles). Very lightweight and comfortable. Good for any terrain and no need to wear socks. Great shoe if you do not need stability or cushioning.

      Comments about Mens New Balance Minimus 10v2 Trail Running Shoe:

      I've had several different Minimus models from New Balance and liked them all except for this pair.
      The top edge of the heal collar especially at the achilles is uncomfortable and not very forgiving and after several months I don't think it will ever break-in. Blister warning if socks slip below edge or without socks.
      I wear these for crossfit about 5 times a week. After the first month or so of not-so-demanding wear, I noticed on a drive home that the hexagonal treads glued to the bottom were coming unglued and starting to catch on carpet and other flooring. Would have sent back if not for leaving town and missing deadline.

      Really like the shoes (lightweight and cool) but after a short time the sole began separating from the upper at the toe area. I have only worn these shoes for walking casually. I still wear them but both shoes are separating.

        I like running in 5 fingers, but with all the snow this year I needed something more so I tried the 10v2 and was very happy with the style, feel and traction. They worked well running on the road as well as on the trails. Cleaned up easily and dried out quick for the next day's run. Haven't hit the real rocky trails yet, so still looking to see how they feel after the rocky hills.

          Had two pairs of the MT10, they have been my trail and road shoes. Wore them through 3 half-marathons. The only shoes that never hurt my feet. When running in rocks, you will feel the rocks if you are not careful.

            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.

              Comments about Mens New Balance Minimus 10v2 Trail Running Shoe:

              I've been looking for something that can help me through some very difficult terrain I run through in the woods and this shoe definitely did it! The route has severe turns and terrain with steep inclines and declines - this shoe helped me through it so much better than the other normal running sneakers I had before. Keep in mind, there's not a lot of padding and support so it is easy to twist your ankles...and you will feel every rock you step on - you might have to shorten your runs at first in order to get used to them...but I love this shoe!

                  This is the second pair of Miniums Trail shoes I have owned. These shoes are fantastic. They are comfortable and lightweight. I wear them for Crossfit and Mud Runs. I also sometimes wear them to work because they are so comfortable. These are awesome shoes because they can be worn with or without socks and when they get dirty or smelly, simply throw them in the washer or hose them out and let them air dry.

                    I have used up and worn out two pairs of the previous version of these shoes, I typically run a 10.5 but found I needed to run these in a size 11, but the new version feels almost a half size two big. Returned and going to try on in store to get the right fit for me.

                      The flexibility of my new Minimus 10v2 Trail shoes allow full movement of the foot and toes. This is very important because it adds a sensitivity and balance element not present when wearing traditional cross training shoes. They provide maximum flexibility, comfort and allow me to gain top speed throughout my extreme trail runs.
