Review Summary

Sneak Preview

Available March 2012

The NB Minimus Zero Trail running style, the New Balance MT/WT00, is an ultra-minimal flyweight trail running shoe that features the new Vibram T-Lite outsole. This outsole, which was designed after methodical review of the lug wear patterns of the previous NB Minimus trail model (the MT10), features a “less-is-more” inspired lug placement and a unique webbed midsole pattern complete with small, cushioning pods that can move with independence. The two-piece upper is constructed using a lightweight, unlined mesh and an ultrathin, laser cut, fully-welded overlay. The tongue of the NB Minimus Zero Trail is a soft, single layer, form-fitting mono-construction.
