Minimus Hi-Rez – Enhanced Barefoot Shoe

Pocketable Barefoot Running Shoe

If you love the feel of the ground when you're running, then you'll like the New Balance Minimuz Hi-Rez. Instead of the traditional one piece rubber for the sole, the sole of the Hi-Rez is made up of a number of hexagonal pods.

The result is a shoe that moves naturally with the foot, allowing for an incredible feel for the ground. They're so flexible that you can roll them up and put them in your pocket. It is as they say, a breakthrough innovation.
