I love these shoes!!
The Distance Elite is my third pair of Newton shoes; I have since bought my fourth pair. At first, I chose Newton because I read on a blog about their large toe box. This is totally true, permitting me to run painlessly. They are fun to run in because of their lightness and bounciness. In my mind, the only aspect which could be improved is to install a more solid material above the big toe (my curvy big toes lash through the mesh after about 300km). Great job in general!

Excellent for both short and long distance running. Light weight and yet well supported. Drys fast even when running in wet conditions.
Highly recommended for any serious runner.

Great for Half Marathons!
Even though I am on the stability side, I chose this shoe for half marathons. Even though I didn't PR in this shoe, the shoe performed exceptionally with a really good feel the entire race. For a full marathon I still use the Distance S, but for anything shorter this is really an awesome shoe. Nice and light and streamlined, this will be my go to half marathon shoe in the future for sure!

These shoes blast you up some pretty long, painful hills. These are recommended for runners that have probably been running in Newtons for atleast a full year or more.

My all time favorites
I have been an endurance runner for about 10 years and tried all shoes until I discovered Newton started with Sir Isaacs Gravity and then Elites where I finnally found my perfect match. Soft smooth and perfect fitting, lightweight and efficient perfect for long distance running takes care of my feet like no other shoe never had an injury in my newtons

Lightweight spped
As much as I have loved all my Distance S Newtons - the Elite just gets better. A little lighter - due to a more mesh-ey upper, yet keeping all the comfort in the outsole for a smooth, really fast run. Great.

My favorite!!
Running in my 2nd pair! Very lightweight and fast, yet built to withstand high-mileage. I'm running 50+ miles a week in these shoes, and will use them for Boston in April.

Great Shoes
I started my Newton experience with the Sir Isaac, moved to the Gravity, and then to the Distance Elite. This is my second pair of Elite's, and they have been amazing! Used them heavily during Ironman training, and then during both a half- and full-distance race this summer. Prior to Newtons, I was plagued with knee pain on long runs, but the lug and low-heel configuration seem to work wonders for me. These shoes are superlight, stable, and even feel soft and cushioned on long pavement runs. Only criticism I have is they are not great for super cold weather, too light and ventilated to protect your toes!
