A great all-around running shoe, the updated Fate II now offers a more breathable upper and metatarsal stretch panels that help the shoe better accommodate the shape of your foot. Beveled lugs allow for a smoother ride and offer a great introduction to Newton’s Action/Reaction Technology. With a peppy, responsive kick and ample cushioning in the forefoot and heel, the perfect ride of this shoe is not an accident, it's Fate.

amazing difference
I have been running for almost 40 years, periodically trying out different shoe brands and models and then sticking with something for a while. Except for the occasional shoe model that was completely incompatible for me, my experience between shoe types was generally not that significant. Unfortunately, the only significant change is that I am older, and more prone to running related aches and pains, and the occasional outright injury. I had pretty much given up running with any sort of consistency.

During a recent trip to Boulder we stopped in the Newton store. My wife encouraged me to purchase a pair of the Fate II. The change was revolutionary. From my very first run I had noticeably more stamina. I run faster and further with less effort. After a few runs I also noticed I had far less post run stiffness, and none of the symptoms of the more chronic knee and leg issues that have plagued me as I’ve gotten older. The bottom line is I actually enjoy running again.

I rarely write reviews of any sort, and I know this probably sounds too good to be true. Maybe I possess the precise set of running shortcomings targeted for improvement with the Newton design. Nevertheless, I’m sure there are plenty of others like me who will find their running experience dramatically improved with a Newton shoe. Thanks.

New to Newton
!st pair of Newton's previous Altra user. Nice fit and ample room for my toes. Great fit on Climbs, flats and most imprtantly decents. Altra's were to loose up front. These are well crafted shoes. These are now my dedicated road trainers. About 35 miles and not having any issues. BOCO AT is my trail trainer.

Better than the original version
In comparison to the older version, the new Fate is a much better shoe. It feels a lot lighter, and I am really liking the improved toe box. If you liked running in the old Fate, you'll likely like these better.

Great evolution
This is my 3rd pair of fate and I love the new fate II, feels more punchy on the cushioning and has a great supportive feeling to the upper whilst still being light and comfortable. I'm happy running 10k to 40k in them and see them as a great all rounder. Would happily recommend them to anyone wanting to try a new shoe. Love them.

Great update to this shoe!
Huge fan of the original fate and these are by far better. I love the fit and love how these feel lighter than they actually are. These are great for high mileage, speed work, etc.

Don't know much about shoes
But I do know that these fate shoes felt perfect right away. They are incredibly light and the upper ventilation is awesome.
Furthermore delivery was superfast and q&a were handled lightning fast.
The ecological packaging is a big PLUS as well.
I am super satisfied and a new Newton lifer.

Shaved 30 seconds per mile off my times
I have been running in the Fate (original) shoes and average 7 minutes per mile times. I ordered the Fate II as my old Fate's were wearing down and noticed that my times were quicker at 6-1/2 minutes per mile. The red differently stands out more than the blue of the original Fate shoes.
