In setting out to create a line of shoes that would provide the ultimate minimalist experience, we worked against a clearly-defined set of criteria:
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.
