New Balance Minimus: Now Available Online!

The Evolution and Inspiration of NB Minimus

Boulder, Colorado native and ultramarathoner Anton Krupicka helped test and develop NB Minimus with New Balance Senior Designer Chris Wawrousek and team. The Lawrence, Mass., New Balance lab sent CAD drawings and prototypes back and forth to get Anton's feedback on the NB Minimus.

Chris Wawrousek: "Obviously, we're super excited about NB Minimus as a design group. [New Balance Product Manager] Bryan Gothie had this funny story about how he met Tony [Anton] and Kyle[Skaggs, also of Team New Balance] at a running shop. When Bryan came back, he started talking about these guys and the great things that they were doing. We all got super excited to have the opportunity to create product for such elite caliber athletes with direct input from them."


Drop is the difference between heel height and toe height. All NB Minimus shoes have a 4mm drop which provides a more natural foot position than traditional shoes.


The wider forefoot in NB Minimus allows your foot to expand naturally on impact.


To minimize distance from foot to ground, NB Minimus has no insert, minimal midsoles & outsoles, and is engineered to encourage a midfoot strike.


Because NB Minimus contains only what is necessary, it's almost 50% lighter than traditional lightweight shoes.

Caution: This product should be introduced slowly into a running exercise routine. New Balance recommends limiting initial use to 10% of overall running workouts and very gradually increasing time and distance. This product increases the strain on the foot, calf, and Achilles tendon. Overuse of this product or use for activities outside of running and walking may increase the risk of sustaining injury.
