19. New Balance Minimus Trail

Carefully crafted to help you build up a mid-foot strike rather than slamming down on your heels and sending impact straight to your knees, the Vibram-powered Minimus come minus the sole insert. You can really feel the ground beneath your feet but not the stones. They do lack a bit of grip in the wet on concrete but handle the trails with aplomb.
