Minimus to the max.

With a 4mm drop that won't turn your Achilles tendons into jelly after more than a mile, and a stable REVlite heel that makes an ideal platform for gym workouts and lifting, the New Balance Men's 40v1 Minimus Training Shoe offers the versatility and performance to handle every step of your workout.

Its relatively low stack height won't mess up your form in the gym the way a more structured running shoe would, while its light, breathable upper conforms to the shape of your foot for endless comfort. New Balance's springy Rapid Rebound midsole absorbs the impact of the road, and its Vibram rubber outsole adds sticky grip on slicker surfaces.

  • Hit the gym or the road in this versatile trainer
  • Low stack height and 4mm drop ideal for cross training
  • Cushioned midsole provides light support for shorter runs
  • Breathable, airy uppers conform to a range of foot types
  • Vibram outsole provides grip on gym floors

The Vibram grip
Lightweight minimalist style
The tongue and collar are generally comfortable (i found the other minimalist styles to dig into my ankle a bit, this one is a little more on the traditional side).

Just 1, it felt short in the heel for me. I ended up finding a different pair of New Balance where my heel sits deeper. I had to sacrifice the vibram grip and overall better durability though.

Otherwise I was really digging these, and if my current ones fall apart I will probably look at trying these out again.

Also, I am a Women's 9.5 teetering on needing a wide, which is why I was trying the men's shoe in a size 8.0, and the fit was feeling good in the width and length for me.
