Perfect minimalist road shoes
5 Star Review   By Eric on NewBalance.com - Oct 3, 2013   

I have been using MT10, MT00, and MT10v2 for almost a year now. And I have been looking a pair of minimalist road shoes for a quite sometime. And these shoes are a perfect match for my MT shoes. It has the same minimalist feeling, but at the same time it absorb the hard pounding sensation from asphalt or pavement. The 1st time I use this shoes was for my first 10K race this year. I have been training to run slower for a longer distance the whole year, for my 100 miles race. But when I used these shoes I did not realize that I was running faster then my expectation and make a new PR. And after then I used it for 42 miles run in Ragnar Relay run, and it just a perfect shoes for those combination road, pavement, and an easy trail route. Plus it has a bit of old school running shoes look. I love these shoes.

5 Star Review   By jwin23 on Footlocker.com - Sep 10, 2013   

I recently upgraded to these M20s from the first version of the Ionix. It was an interesting transition, one that I didn't expect to be much of a difference. However, I was mistaken. These M20's have a smaller drop and I wasn't anticipating that. Once I received these shoes, I broke them in with a swift 4 mile run. Not a very wise choice. However, 2 weeks and over 30 miles later these shoes are awesome! They way absolutely nothing and it benefits my sprint speeds enormously. They also run very true to size. I would definitely recommend these shoes to anyone who wants a great minimalist running experience or upgrading or transitioning from other minimalist shoes :^)

The outer sole has started falling off
1 Star Review   By Jimmy on Eastbay - Sep 9, 2013   

Nice shoe when picked up, but the outer sole/grip has already started to come off after only a few runs. Havnt even worn them a lot, not very happy with the product quality overall.

Awesome running shoe!
5 Star Review   By Yoaked on NewBalance.com - Aug 14, 2013   

I love these shoes. They felt like they were a bit big compared to the other Minimus shoes I've owned, but once I laced them up and started running, they felt great! I highly recommend these.

Amazing Shoes
5 Star Review   By juan on NewBalance.com - May 20, 2013   

For minimalist shoes these shoes are incredibly comfortable. It honestly does not feel like a minimal shoe. I already did a couple of cross fit workouts and went on a couple of runs with these shoes and I would definitely recommend these shoes and I would definitely buy me another pair.
