Great shoes!
I have run in Newton distances for a few years now. I love now they have 5 lugs! They need a decent break in period though still in my experience, but the stiffness in the lugs is not nearly as pronounced in the 5 lug pattern

My new go to shoe
The last time I was in need of new running shoes I was looking to try something new. I am naturally a forefoot runner so I decided to give Newton an try. So far I have about 400 miles on my Distance III's and I could not be happier with them.Once I hit 500 miles I will be trading them in for a new pair of Distance III's.

I really love how quick and light they feel. I have used them on training runs, a half Ironman, and a marathon. When I run my first Ironman this year it will be in a pair of Distance III's!

Best ones yet
Having owned the Distance I, II, and now III, this is the best one yet. The extra lug makes for a more balanced landing and the new compound seems to grip wet pavement better than previous generations. Durability is awesome as always. Keep it up!

The extra lug was a good idea - 5 metatarsals - 5 lugs. The fit of the uppers could be improved - a bit too loose for me, and I have gone down half a size in compensation. Newton wearer since 2007.

Distance 5 lugs
I had owned a Distance 4 lugs and found it light and responsive. I ran my first sub330 in them but had to retire them early because they seemed to wear out fast

I got the Distance 5 lugs this year and found them more stable and somewhat less firm than the 4 lugs (in a good way).

After running a marathon in them recently, it seems that the wear rate is less also

I would highly recommend these to Newton lovers like me :)

Fast Shoe
Love these shoes for speed work or running races. They also are nice for quick fun runs. Really nice fit on the upper with reactive sole that inspires letting loose.

Perfect fit (once you are used to it)
Once you are used to this kind of shoes, this new model has the perfect fit and provides better stability thanks to its fifth lug.

I used to have the oldest Distance model and had some sprains, but now those are gone.

Superior forefoot feel
I was introduced to Newton's at a recent Race Expo and although had heard about them, had never tried them on. First thought is "whoa - this feels a bit wonky", but you quickly (within a few runs) grow accustomed to the additional cushion in the forefoot. So much so that traditional running shoes begin to pale in comparison. The feel of additional lift, control, and power coming with each footfall is invigorating and the near weightlessness is a dream. I now have logged over 300 miles on these and the sole still has a lot of life left. Newton's are my new favorite running shoe!
