Anyone run in the NB MT20 yet?

I'm thinking of picking up a pair to use for the soft trails I run on in the Twin Cities but would love a first-hand review. From the reviews I read online it's the same shoe as the original Minimus Trail without the annoying elastic strap over your forefoot and better mesh over the toes.

I didn't think the zero drop version was out yet, doesn't it come out in February 2012? If its out now I'm headed out to the store and I'll write a review asap Smile

Neil - The MT20 is NOT the zero drop version. It's the same 4mm heel drop of the original. You are correct in that the zerop drop will 'drop' in 2012 based on other posts I read on this site.

ifunfar.com has posted this quick look at the MT00.

This is supposed to be a true zero drop shoe, due out in February. They plan to keep a 4 mm drop version, as well.
