LIGHT AND FAST
These shoes are as close as you’ll come to sprouting a layer of tread on your feet. The minimalist 790’s are extremely light and low to the ground, providing a nimble feel that’s almost like a racing flat. 6.6 oz; newbalance.com
Bonus: These kicks look great with jeans.
Bummer: It’s too streamlined for those who need maximum cushion, protection, and stability.
