I've been waiting for these shoes all my running life. I love the fit, how light weight it is and how close to the ground. It feels like you're running in bare feet. At the same time, they're surpisingly sturdy and durable.

Great Trail Runners Shoes
Love the color and the fit and size, the weight is extremely lite and wears great. Shoe can be used for all activities. I Have used it for bicycling, walking long distances and hiking and all the day to day uses, I strongly recommend it, a must have for New Balance lovers!!!

Awesome for Travel/Running
Bought these for a lightweight ~barefoot running shoe and was blown away by how light they are. Super comfortable and great for running, more durable than I thought they would be but I wouldn't take them on anything with screen or sharp rock. My only complaint is that they have a slight stiffness under the palm of the foot - more than maybe necessary. Have been traveling with them for almost 3 months in Central America as my only shoe and they work great. The black can even pass as semi-formal shoes to the undiscriminating eye.

Tough and Lightweight
Have now put about 14 miles on the shoes in my first two runs. So far, very comfortable, do a great job protecting your feet from small rocks/gravel but are very lightweight, Definitely will change the way you run (i.e. more on your toes/forefoot). I like them so far.

I'm forever a minimal convert!!
I've been thinking about running on minimal shoes for some time. I decided to buy them after much research and went on a 5 miler when I got the shoes. My feet never felt so "real" landing against the pavement. My form, foot placement was right on. I could've ran further, but as this was my first time running minimal, and as they suggest, you run short distances to get your body accustomed to the shoes. That was the furthest I took it. I ran on pavement and trail. Both felt just as "real". I was hesitant on the cushion as I am 6'2" and 200lbs. But, they felt great! I quickly bought another pair, unfortunately not through Altrec. But will be soon buying more to rotate. And, these will be coming from Altrec:O) I still have my other running shoes that will soon be fading out as I get more minimal shoes to replace them. If you have not tried running on minimal shoes, try it. I love the colors, I got the green MT101.
