Originally designed for our elite racing team, this shoe was tested and loved by some of the fastest runners in the country before being released to the public. The classic 4 lug Newton ride with a seamless upper feels fast, light and efficient. The Distance Elite is great for high or low distance training and racing. We hope you love it as much as we do!

BEST Long Run Shoes On Market
For the critical runner who feels their shoes play an important role in both form and fatigue, these shoes cover both categories better than any I have tried. And I have tried them ALL. Get out of your own head and try them. You will be happy you did.

I love the Elite
This shoe is amazing! Light and comfortable, it propelled me to my 4th Ironman finish last month.
I'm in my 4th pair and I will certainly remain loyal to it.

Best Newton I have Run In Yet
These glide and are really reactive. There is more room in the toe box in these than the Motion III and the Kismet. I have run 2 half marathons, and a fast 5K in these along with the training runs. So far they feel great. These are On Point!!!

Best Newton of ALL!
These are the best in the Newton family. I've used the Distance Elite in 10 Ironman and several other distance triathlons. Don't get me wrong, the Gravity and Distance are good shoes as well, but the Elite with the original 4 lug platform is where it's at for me! I love these shoes and am begging the staff of Newton to never stop making this 4 lug masterpiece!

The Best I've Found
I've run over 15 road marathons and tried different Newton shoes and other brands including Brooks and Saucony. I'm officially done cheating on the Distance Elite, which are the lightest, fastest shoe I have come across. I'll be wearing them at the Marine Corps Marathon next month. Hope to see you there.

Distance Elite
Phenomenal shoe. I do not race, I use this for everyday running . Great shoe for midsole runners....lugs are placed so that it is extremely difficult to push off from the toes. Incredibly light shoe. In this sense the shoe easily surpasses the bygone Gravity I, the only other 4 lug shoe. Great shoe for runners with narrow feet (Size D, but needing a narrower toe box). Would suggest that something be added to the back of the bottom of the heel to make it wear better...like what the old Gravity I shoe had.

Comfortable and Fast
I have wide feet and the whole line of Newton shoes are comfortable and the Distance Elite are no exception - they have plenty of room in the toe box but are snug enough to feel fast. These are lightweight and I have used them for some training runs but mostly for races (5K to 10K). Love them!

Still the best
This is the 2nd generation of Distance Elites I have run in. I bought 2 pair of last year's and 2 of this year so I don't run out. The 4 lug system and light weight is perfect for my 10+ mile days. I have been a Newton Runner for 7 years and this series is simply the best I have ever run in. It keeps pushing me to more PBs.

The best shoes I've ever ran in!!!
As a long time runner and Newton customer, I can't go to another that gives me the experience that Newton has been able to offer. I luckily got the chance to run and be an athlete of theirs at Ironman Canada for the Prostate Cancer Foundation. After already enjoying the shoes and being able to meet the staff and owners, you will not find a company that will treat you as kind and truly make your buying experience as comfortable as Newton. The shoe itself feels like your running on pillows along with the light weight makes running enjoyable, pain-free, and fun! Keep it up and will see everyone on the road!
