Description The New Balance Minimus Vibram® Thong combines minimalist comfort with the convenience of a slip-on sandal. Add to that the extreme durability of a Vibram® outsole and you have the perfect sandal for your summer adventures, whether your plans include trekking along a rocky beach or lounging by the pool.
NB Minimus is a whole new approach to footwear, a place on the spectrum from barefoot running to the traditional maximum-cushioning running shoe. Inspired by Good Form Running and designed to be worn with or without socks. With only a 4mm drop from heel to toe, as little as a third of that of a traditional running shoe, the NB Minimus collection holds a world of discovery for neutral runners; additionally, Good Form Running teaches methods of improvement for those seeking to conquer gait issues.
