Give your feet the same protection from the elements that the rest of your body enjoys.
'Minimalist' generally refers to the soles of low-drop running shoes, but they're often accompanied by minimalist uppers that don't put much between your feet and the elements. The New Balance Women’s MT20 Minimus Winter Trail Running Shoe
features a wind- and water-resistant upper that lets you enjoy the trails when the weather turns cooler and wetter.
- Fabric upper is soft, pliable, and breathable, and features Winter Run technology to repel rain and snow
- Lightweight synthetic overlays offer a supportive fit around your instep
- NL-1 last’s minimal 4mm heel-to-toe drop and broad forefoot promote natural forefoot splay for runners with midfoot striking gaits
- Acteva midsole provides tons of flexibility and light cushioning
- Minimalist Vibram outsole delivers underfoot sensitivity, low-bulk traction, and durability
- Antimicrobial footbed neutralizes odor-causing bacteria

They are very comfortable. I use them for running and crossfit. However, the soles are not very grippy, even on pavement, when it's wet. I would not trail run in these unless it was gravel or "nice" trail. Mud/roots/rocks, no. The little "waffles" on the sole don't have enough prominence to create good traction. Otherwise, the construction is really sturdy compared to other minimalist shoes (I also run/train in New Balance WT00's which are paper-thin). I'd recommend these for most dry activities.
