New Balance Minimus MT20


New Balance Minimus MT20

An entirely different approach to trailrunning than the traditional running shoe, the New Balance Minimus MT20 takes the proven versatile durability of a Vibram® T-Lite 2 exclusive outsole and combines it with a fitted, extremely minimalist upper that's comfortable with or without socks.

This update allows the shoe to feature a modified upper on the same comfortable sole unit as its popular counterpart, creating a minimal experience on the trail.

  • Synthetic/mesh upper provides lightweight comfort and support
  • Deconstructed Acteva® midsole provides great flexibility and a featherweight cushion
  • Odor resistant
  • Minimal Vibram® T-Lite 2 outsole for lightweight traction and durability
