An email from Newton customer Cassy D. showed up in Sir Isaac’s inbox just before the Labor Day weekend. In the email Cassy included the lyrics to a song she wrote about her Newtons. This is definitely the most fun, creative testimonial we’ve received yet…and Sir Isaac wants to celebrate with a little contest. Read the lyrics below and then I’ll tell you about the chance to win FREE Newtons.

Ode to my Newton Training Shoes
(To the tune of Gavin De Graw’s song “In Love With A Girl”)

If you don’t know the tune, here’s the video.

So many shoes gonna look like they want you,
Try to get you thinking they’re really fast.
But there’s nothing like the fit of the one that has put in the time
And you know its gonna be there.

Back your forefoot when no other shoe does it,
Don’t let nobody slow you down, when your fast.
There’s no pain in protecting your pace,
From the 5 to the Tri to the runners high.

I’m in love with a shoe who knows me better,
Fell for the color just when I met her.
Took my sweet time when I was at the store,
Newton understands…

And you know how to treat my toes right,
Not too loose and not too tight.
Helps me to soar when I’m in flight.
Newton understands me.

I’m in love with a shoe (I’m in love with).
I’m in love with a shoe (I’m in love with).

Out the many aching arches and squashed toes,
Through the valley of the love of the mesh,
Is a support that is there for the soles,
Falling down on the road without leaving any down lows.

But you’re high from the ride of a lifetime.
The moment was over too fast,
Then its home to plan the next run,
The shoes will have a long life.

I’m in love with a shoe who knows me better,
Fell for the color just when I met her.
Took my sweet time when I was at the store,
Newton understands…

And you know how to treat my toes right,
Not too loose and not too tight.
Helps me to soar when I’m in flight.
Newton understands me.

I’m in love with a shoe (I’m in love with).
I’m in love with a shoe (I’m in love with).

So, I want to hear Cassy’s song sung! I’ll award a free pair of the Newton shoes to the person who posts the best video of Cassy’s “Ode To My Newtons.”

It’s simple enough – shoot a video of you or your friend singing the song, post it to YouTube and then share the link in the comments section below. The more creative, the better! The contest will run for the next two weeks and then I’ll announce the winner here.

Let’s hear it!
