I just ordered the Inov-8 Bare x-200 to hold me over until these get released. I loved the NB trail but was unsatisfied with the NB road. I hope these are better.

I love the concept and how they've developed it. I've been messing with rubber dust from industrial tire recycling centers, mixed with glue to prototype our next winter running shoe. I wish I had the money New Balance has to make my own Vibram soles. That's pretty cool.

My dad shared a similar story about sidewalks at an east coast college someplace. Instead of installing sidewalks, they let students walk across the grass to get to classes. Eventually paths were formed enough in the grass to indicate where sidewalks should be installed.

I have beeen lucky enough to have been wearing the basic strapped style vibrams since I had chemo for test. cancer over a year ago which allowed my feet to get infected and I almost lost them to staph infection but the 5 finger basic w/ straps was all I could wear that didn't hurt my feet and since then it's been love! However,I recently bought the new Minimus my NewBalance and I love how they allow me to do sprints and run over harder surfaces than my soft soled vibrams, they are the perfect in-between shoe! Now, I plan on getting the new Komodos since my feet are healed but I would suggest the 5 finger Vibrams to Anyone and Everyone they helped me feel my legs and feet again and opened my mind in the process but the NB Minimus are a great mid step for those who still need a traditional shoe but with the amazing Vibram sole feel yet allow one to run like a gazelle! Anyway I'm so glad to see more and more people embracing the barefoot revolution! Just beware of fake mock-up shoes if they aren't Vibram they aren't true at least in my humble opinion! But, from a major 5 finger enthusiast try the NB Minimus ,you'll love them I promise!

Funny, did Vibram incorporated the NB trail sole wear test data in their Seeya-model?

Justin,

In the first paragraph it is mentioned that the Zero line is being released currently. Is this correct or are they being released in the spring?

Great info, just as a side note I was talking to a New Balance rep at a natural running seminar and I was able to handle the new minimus road and trail, they are great looking shoes. They are coming out at the beginning of march and will be $110 a pair, a bit more than the current model

I like how they're using the wear pattern to inform future designs, but surely it would make sense to make separate models for heel strikers and mid-foot strikers?

Recently started training for my 1st marathon - San Francisco Marathon 2012. And, I've chosen to wear the New Balance Minimus. IT'S A FAB SHOE! My feet & ankles have gained strength and it provides great stability and comfort. KEEP UP THE GOOD WORK NEW BALANCE! - http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=pEdLfcUJ1IY
