Here we are, one year after beginning to sell through specialty running and multisport stores around the world. To celebrate this special milestone we hosted our top-performing retail accounts for the first ever Newton Retail Summit in Boulder, Colorado. Each morning began with group runs lead by some of our top pro athletes, including Josh Cox, Craig Alexander and Chris Legh, as well as form coaching from our co-founder Danny Abshire. We showed off the Newton Running Lab, presented Newton technology and held retailer feedback forums. During the general sessions a variety of running industry gurus shared their expertise, including injury prevention guru Mark Cucuzzella, M.D., four-time Olympian Lorraine Moller of The Lydiard Foundation and Brian Metzler of Running Times magazine. The highlight of the event was the debut of the Sir & Lady Isaac guidance trainer, with the entire group test driving the shoes in advance of the early September release. We look forward to making this an annual event!

    Sounds like a fun week. We still cant buy the shoes from running stores down under in New Zealand though. What’s the story?
