Description For the outdoor enthusiast who wants to maximize the minimalist mindset, the New Balance Minimus 90 is a rugged multi-purpose shoe that can take you seamlessly from trailside to fireside. Featuring a C-CAP® midsole for cushioning and flexibility, the Minimus 90's versatile combination of a soft leather upper and the multi-directional traction of a Vibram® outsole make it as functional as it is comfortable.
Minimus is a whole new approach to footwear, a new 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 Minimus collection holds a world of discovery for neutral runners as well as those with gait issues or chronic injury to conquer by learning better form.
