New model for this year (Do not check this option if this model was listed as new in last year's Gear Guide)The first barefoot- inspired multisport shoe in the Minimus collection, the New Balance Minimus 80 is designed for the athlete who needs enough cushioning underfoot to endure a full day of adventure in the outdoors. The Minimus 80 is an all-purpose shoe that is equally at home on aggressive terrain as it is relaxing around a campsite. The Minimus 80 brings all of the Minimus DNA to the world of multisport including a low profile midsole, barefoot-friendly interiors, an anatomically correct NL-1 natural last with its signature forefoot shape, 4mm off-set from heel to forefoot, and a lightweight ride. A Vibram™ designed outsole features enough lug height and foot protection to ensure a comfortable fit for day-long outdoor pursuits. The lightweight upper is a combination of tightly woven mono mesh and welded synthetics meant to deliver all day comfort and support.
