New Balance Minimus 10v2 Trail, $110

Category: Light & Fast

Weight: 6.2 oz (men’s); 4.9 oz (women’s)

Height off the ground: 12.5mm (heel); 8.5mm (forefoot)

FIT: A foot cradling, slim fit from the heel through midfoot opens into a wide toe box for unrestricted toe splaying.

FEEL: Built like a trail moccasin for the fleet of feet, the NB Minimus 10v2 has a smooth, performance oriented fit, with just enough upper and under-foot protection and a breathe of cushion for comfort. These are sheer bliss when worn without socks and have an antimicrobial treatment to combat stinky shoes.

RIDE: Testers loved the zippy, low-slung ride of the Minimus for darting over and around trail obstacles. Solid ground contact gave the proprioception needed to make foot fall adjustments on the fly for nimble trail hopping.
