I saw the advertisement of the New Balance Minimus 3090 Connect on the highway and I was intrigued to see what's behind this Minimus concept!
Minimus is a whole new approach to athletic footwear, inspired by Good Form Running and designed to be worn with or without socks. The Minimus Road running shoe is engineered for use on pavement and other varied running surfaces.
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.
Much is made of what goes into shoes, but with genuine innovation and inspiration the New Balance 3090 is made truly great with what has been taken away. Inspired by the geometries of a molecule, the 3090 with Ionix technology removes some material from the midsole to create a lightweight everyday running shoe with a plush, underfoot feel with enhanced flexibility and comfort. Weighing in under 7 ounces, this shoe looks and feels so great that you may just extend your daily run by a few blocks—or by several miles!

Not sure if the Minimus Connect 3090 is only meant for running, the teaser video shows sprints, box jumps, ring push-ups, ropes, and tire slinging.
So what do you think of it? Do you like it? Are you tempted to try it?
