On a mission to create a shoe that will give you enough protection while still preserving the barefoot experience, New Balance delivers its latest ground-embracing innovation- the NB Minimus Zero Collection.

Famous American Minimalist Ultra Marathoner, Anton Krupicka, was in town to launch this new series last week.

The New Minimus Zero Collection

Minimus was designed to satisfy individuals looking to achieve a closer-to-barefoot running experience, by encouraging a more natural stride, and a mid-foot landing. Each shoe in this collection uses minimal constructions that reduce weight and all of the shoes offer barefoot friendly interiors and no insert to encourage sockless wear. The stack height of each NB Minimus Zero shoe is reduced by several millimeters compared to the original collection.

Minimus Zero Trail

The Minimus Zero Trail was engineered to provide increased ground-feel, its extremely lightweight design features a durable Vibram® outsole that makes conquering terrains from concrete to trail the ultimate minimalist experience.
