Upper and Interior
The upper part has a strong and highly breathable mesh. The different reinforcements and the transversal band of the forefoot are made of synthetic material. A TPU band has been added to the toe to protect the toes and increase durability.
The interior is fully lined and free of seams, being the microfiber used soft and breathable. It does not have removable insole and the footbed is also lined in microfiber. The heel has no buttress and the only thing that is used to shape the shoe is synthetic material.
The New Balance Minimus WT10 v1 has the same anatomical last NL-1, with more space for the fingers and offers a natural position of the foot, great sensitivity and adaptability to the natural environment.
The adjustment is still centered on the midfoot in order to release the part of the fingers. For this purpose, a transverse band on the front of the shoe and diagonal strips of textile on the inside have been used. All this, together with the tongue is sewn to the shoe, is used by New Balance to maximize the fit in the middle of the foot and give a feeling of glove. T
he ankle is completely released and goes up little by the part of the Achilles tendon. In this area presents a clip to facilitate the shoes of the shoes. The laces are semi-flat and the eyelets have been reinforced with synthetic material.
This shoe fits with sizes similar to the usual, but we recommend that you measure the foot and use the tool that you will find next to the size selector. Remember that the perfect fit is one that allows you to insert a finger between the heel and the shoe, while it is unfastened. Keep in mind that foot measurements vary when we add load, for example, when we walk and run
The sole consists of an EVA Acteva 7 mm midsole, which gives protection and comfort, and a Vibram rubber layer that forms round studs about 3-4 mm in height. The sole has transverse grooves that contribute positively to the great flexibility of the New Balance Minimus WT10v1. Also contributes to the flexibility of the Acteva midsole, very light and with very good resistance to compression. This feature makes our footprint much more natural with extra protection.
With regard to the difference in height between the heel and the forefoot, the New Balance Minimus WT10v1 only have 4 mm of drop, being the perfect ante-room before being able to enjoy the benefits of a totally flat shoe or what we call 0 drop.
