Q:

Best Summer Trail Runners: Minimalist

It’s summer, and time to run. What are some good trail runners for warm summer days?

A:I’ve long been a fan of New Balance—their shoes are sturdy, reliable, and fit well. Now they have a trail runner that takes some cues from the minimalist running world. The Minimus 10 Trail ($105) is built with a  light, airy upper that is connected to a grippy Vibram outsole for a great combination of superlight comfort and great feel for the trail. It’s low (4mm) drop from heel to toe helps encourage a neutral foot strike, and it can be worn with or without socks.
