The men's innovative, barefoot-style New Balance Minimus HI-REZ Road-Running Shoes feature independent pods of cushioning for flexibility and a true connection to the ground.
New Balance collected insights and feedback from barefoot runners, and the Men's MR1 Minimus Hi-Rez Running Shoe is the ambitious result. Lightweight and incredibly flexible, it provides next-to-barefoot ground feel and feedback while still offering protection from road debris and very light cushioning. The secret is the revolutionary sole, which is broken up into hexagonal pods that allow you to feel every nuance of the ground under you, unlike single-piece soles that can mask that sensory data. The Hi-Rez was designed as an everyday trainer for the experienced minimalist runner or as an alternative shoe for runners who like to vary their running footwear; we'll bet that its incredible feel, ridiculously light weight, and sock-like fit will have you reaching for it more often than not.
CLOSEOUTS . Even andquot;featherweightandquot; doesnand#39;t convey how lightweight New Balanceand#39;s MR1 Minimus Hi-Rez running shoes truly are -- which is ideal, considering theyand#39;re designed to mimic true barefoot running. Youand#39;ll barely notice theyand#39;re there, but donand#39;t worry; feet stay cushioned and comfortable thanks to independently cushioned traction pods and a supportive EVA midsole. Available Colors: BLACK/SILVER/GREY. Sizes: 7.5, 8, 8.5, 9, 9.5, 10, 10.5, 11, 11.5, 12, 12.5, 13, 14.
