Not too long ago, I was invited to a preview event to check out the latest footwear from New Balance. It was held in one of their showrooms in New York City and on a day I could not make it.
So the wonderful PR company who represents New Balance, sent two pairs of the Minumus 20 Trail New Balance shoes for my girls to review.
We are no strangers to the New Balance brand. I’ve bought New Balance footwear many times before. I love the brand because they are always stylish (just look how cute they are!), comfortable and very affordable. I also like that they are durable, lightweight and feels like you stepping on a fluffy cloud, as my little one said. My girls loved the Minumus 20 Trail Collection for the same reasons. They both agreed the colors were fashionable and would go well with any attire — skirts, jeans and of course shorts.
I’m a frugal mom and so I wanted to “save” them for the new school year but they were too excited to wait. But who am I kidding? I can’t blame them. Who would want to wait? When you’re a kid and you get something brand new, like sneakers, you’d want to wear it the same day too.
Below are some specs of the Minimus 20 Trail for Kids:
Minimus 20 TrailAn entirely different approach to trail running than the traditional running shoe, the New Balance Minimus 20 Trail (KT20) creates a near-barefoot experience on the trail just for kids. The fitted, minimalist upper pairs up with the proven versatile durability of an outsole engineered especially for the trail to make a performance shoe with trend-setting style that’s comfortable with or without socks.
- Lightweight, mesh-based upper with synthetic reinforcement provides increased breathability and speed
- Non-marking rubber outsole won’t mark floors
- NB Minimus is a whole new approach to footwear, a place on the spectrum from barefoot running to the traditional maximum-cushioning running shoe. Inspired by Good Form Running and designed to be worn with or without socks. With only a 4mm drop from heel to toe, as little as a third of that of a traditional running shoe, the NB Minimus collection holds a world of discovery for neutral runners; additionally, Good Form Running teaches methods of improvement for those seeking to conquer gait issues.
Thanks to New Balance, my girls are walking around in cute, comfortable and stylish footwear wherever they go!
