A great all-around running shoe, the updated Newton Running 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.

The best running shoe ever!!!
I've been running in the Newton's for the past 6 or 7 years. They are the best running shoe I ever run in. I run with a group of 6 to 8 guys and have for the last 20 years. We've done several marathons and half marathons over the years. Over the years all my running buddies have switched to Newtons and all are happy and continue to wear the Newton. I also have my wife, daughter and son inlay now wearing Newtons. I look forward to many more years of running in my Newtons. 5 stars for Newton!!

1st Time Newton runner
I finally pulled the trigger on buying my first pair of Newton shoes. I've been wanting to improve my running form for some time now as well as try Newton. I've watched all of their Running Form Friday videos on YouTube to help me out in this regard. I've been running in them for over a month now and LOVE them. I've taken it slow & increased my time as they suggested. Granted I've been running over 20 years now & been mainly a mild heel striker. I have incurred the calf tightness as they said would happen but nothing severe. I have wide feet so I appreciate the flexible metatarsal stretch in the upper. My toes are not scrunched at all in Newton shoes and that is a MAJOR plus for me. I haven't experienced any negatives yet in my Fate 2 yet. I love how thick the shoe laces are and the shoes are very comfortable over all. I've run in just about every other brand so far and most recently ON running. With that said, I am definitely a Newton convert now. My pace has actually gotten better since trying to correct my form. I would definitely recommend trying Newton Running shoes.

Awesome shoe
I used to run and stopped due to injury. I started back up in the Fall of 2016 and decided to get some Newton's to help with minimizing shin splints and some back issues. These shoes have made running much more enjoyable. I wish they made my issues go away totally, but they are not miracle workers. I love the shoe, the comfort and the look.

I love my new shoes. It took me two runs to get used to them, but now I wouldn't trade them for any other running shoe!

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.

So Natural
I've been wearing Newton running shoes for 3 years. The shoes feel natural. No higher heal feel with these shoes. The walking and running motion is natural, like running barefoot but with the support and cushion one needs for long-term fitness. I wish I would have had these shoes when I was running long distances.
