More responsive compared to the previous Gravity model
This is my third Newton pair. Overall, I like this better because of its weight, styling, and responsiveness. However, the lugs' durability of the III is a concern. It seems that I can put lesser mileage on this shoe compared to the older model.

Gravity III
The new 5 lug Gravity III are light and responsive like the older 4 lug version, but are not as good of a fit for me. Which I find odd since I have a wider foot. While running in the rain, the insole has a tendency to slide outward. This did not happen in the 4 lug model. I recently ran the Seattle Quadzilla, 4 marathons in 4 days, and had to use my older version on 3 of them due to the sliding insole which was causing a blister. But, a great shoe for me if running in dry weather.

Love the Gravity III
My first Newtons were the Distancia and frankly I was not going to get Newton again. The woman at the running store insisted I try the Gravity III. Wow! They fit like they were custom made me for me. Right our of the box they felt like I'd had them weeks already

The Gravity just keeps getting better
These are my first 5 lug Newtons's. Previously I ran in the Gravity II and Distance Elite. I was initially hesitant to make the switch from 4 lug to 5 lug but I absolutly shouldn't have been. These are an incredibly smooth ride, my runs feel easy and my form better than ever. I feel the 5th lug and new texturing gives me more confidence in my footing, especially when cornering.

Newton have taken the Gravity to the next level! Very Impresssed.

Great distance shoe
The Gravity III is incredible. Has great cushion for a long distance training shoe but is still light enough to do some speed work. The 5 lug platform is great and very responsive. The color scheme is great for winter workouts and keeps you visible during dark workouts!!

Focal points - mid-sole strike
I like to apply the Total Immersion swimming concept of focal points to biking and running. I spend about a minute with my attention focused on one part of my body, especially my problem spots, then move to the next. One of my favorites while running is the feel of the five lugs pressing against the balls of my feet. Minimal scuffing, gentle heel drop an instant later. The lugs help me to land every foot strike aligned with my center of gravity, minimizing sideways lurches and recoveries.

Recommended but...
I've been a Newton "disciple" for a few years now, the Gravity III is my third pair of Newtons already. I've had these shoes for almost a year and it's only now that I'm appreciating it's features more. It took me awhile to get use to the five lugs since my old red Gravity from two years ago are still intact so I usually alternate between the two. As far as durability though, I think my other pair are better constructed but the G III are definitely softer and lighter. My biggest gripe would be the soft foam on the inside of the outsole that has worn out so quickly so that my feet are actually now pronating instead of supinating, not a good thing. I wish the whole outsole had the hard rubber all over like the Gravity and not just mostly on the outside.This is why I love the original Gravity but 4 out 5 stars is still not a bad thing.

In Love
I have been a Newton runner since the first Gravity became available in 2007. I have to say the latest version is the best yet.
After a serious accident in 2012 which I suffered a separated shoulder but then I got an infection from the operation and it attacked my spine, ending up with some paralysis (significant for 2 weeks when at worst was unable to walk).
Since then I have had to teach myself to walk and run again which has been difficult and had several speed humps.
Fortunately Newton Running shoes have helped me along the way as all others shoes just don't feel right.

Am rebuilding strength after marathon (and injuries). Needed extra protection on metatarsal and the lugs work really really well. Have not built up mileage yet so can only review on about 5 km runs. They work great

6th pair
I started with Newton Distance 3 years ago. Those worked OK but lugs didn't feel like they were under right part of ball of my foot. I also tore them up fairly quickly with heal striking. The Gravity lugs sit in right spot on ball of my foot. Heal wear has reduced as my foot strike has improved. For me they start to feel tired after about 230 miles or so.

Great upgrade for me
The G3s are my 7th pair of Newtons. I still use my 2008 G1s (2,000 miles and counting) in limited rotation, but these new G3s are the best of the Gravity line, in my opinion. Compared to the previous models, they feel wider in the midfoot (and slightly wider in the toebox), flatter in the arch, yet lighter and more stable overall. This fits my foot better, although for some it may cause fit and comfort issues, so best to test them out. I like that the upper material is softer and more flexible, so I can truly run without socks (previous models' materials and seams made it too uncomfortable for me). So far I've had no durability issues, but I don't expect them to last quite as long as previous models, that were built like tanks. On the curious side, because of the new lugs, which span more of the width of the mid-/fore-foot, and softer-feeling footbed, I actually feel like I'm in contact with the ground for longer with every stride than with previous models (not a good thing). It may be more of a mental issue, but I find that I have to work a bit harder at my quickness to keep up my cadence. I will gladly trade the improved comfort for this slight adjustment.

Gravity III
I love the Gravity III along with the whole newton line of running shoes. For a heavy heel striker that is progressing into a more balanced mid foot striker I like the fact that the newtons get you up on the mid foot. I do wish the heel would be like the original thicker black section and have purchased several of the older models on ebay and through Amazon. For my personal preference the older style heel with the new 5 rails at the mid foot would make this shoe perfect!

Newton Gravity 5 lugs
I had previously owned 2 Gravities (4 lugs) and found them helpful during the transition to the mid/forefoot stride.

I used them for my first sub4 marathon with great success

I find the Gravity 5 lug more stable and supportive and good for the long run and will use them well for training for my next marathon

I love the color and five lugs. Disappointed in the durability. The lugs began wearing out after less than a hundred miles, and the upper began coming apart along the laces. Overall a huge improvement over my original Gravitys, but lacks the durability.

outstanding shoe
Super light and fast. No need for break in. I was nervous about the change from 4 lugs to 5, as I have been running in the Gravity for at least 5 sets of shoes. Love the 5th lug. Adjusted within a couple of runs.

Excellent lightweight trainer
For me, the Gravity is comfortable and an easy trainer for runs up to 15 miles. The shoes light, and running with the lugs in general has improved speed and I think strengthened my calf muscles. I typically use light stability shoes, and get some arch pain on very long runs. Maybe a supportive insole would correct this. I find that I'm faster on race day in other shoes, but that's no problem.
Durability was very good up over 300 miles with just a little wear on the front of the lugs. The upper has stayed very comfortable. However, at about 320 miles, I noticed the middle lug was noticeably loose as if held in place with just the rubber on the sole. I can sometimes feel it move while I'm running too. I hope it stays in place at least another 100 miles. They are good shoes, but at this price, I need to count on 500 or more miles.

Light, fast, really cool
This is my third pair of Newtons, all Gravity. First pair got retired after 1750 miles. Second pair has 1300 miles and still going strong. Third pair (just bought them) are in the closet waiting for their time. Worn out Newtons still feel better than brand new "other" shoes. I don't know what they put in those soles but you can be sure it's good stuff!

The Gravity is the most comfortable running shoe I've run. At 42 living in The Mountains that's a lot of shoe. Make sure to run some variations ie POP 2 and 3 each week also.

Since 2008
I love running in Newtons. I had very little 'adjustment' period, and got many PR's in these shoes. The new lug pattern feels even better than the previous models. If your form is bad or you are a heel striker, you will get that feedback and either naturally adjust - or this shoe is not for you. Personally, I think they are the best shoes on the market

Solid Pair cant imagine my life without!
I've been running in Newtons since 2009 and I honestly cant imagine using another shoe. I am addicted to the lightweight feel and just how well the shoe breaks in. Try on a pair at the store first to get your sizing correct. Ive probably got 350 miles on these shoes and some may say its time for a new pair. I just rotate my older pairs of Newtons in for good measure. You won't go wrong with a pair of Newton's!

Compared to Conventional Running Shoes
When my route gets mucky, sometimes I put on a conventional pair of running shoes for their better grip (and I don't care if they get messed up), and it feels like running with heavy boots--tough work, slow and not much fun.

Men's Gravity III
As a life fan of Newton, the newest version of he Gravity running shoe has a nice feel with the extra lug in the midfoot area. Very comfortable for wide feet - high arches which I have. Finding a shoe that provides cushioning and lightweight ride the Newton III it's a great shoe!

First Letdown by Newton
I first started running in Newtons in 2012 with the Distance. I love them and ran them into the ground (ha). I switched to the Gravity II for my first Ironman and all of the Ironman training. Loved them! After putting more than 500 miles on them I upgraded to the Grav.III for my second Ironman. They tore my feet up. Sadly I think the form factor has changed in more than just the number of lugs. The shoe actually causes my feet physical pain if I wear them for more than 3 miles. They aren't even comfortable for all day pleasure wear. It took me a long time to accept that it was them - not me but I am sad to say I cannot and will not run in the Gravity III. I got a new pair of Distance III and they work just fine. I don't like training in them as much so I will save them for long runs and races but if you are looking into getting yourself into the G3, test them out and be aware of the changes to the internal dimensions of the shoe.

Not the right Newton for me
I do not like my Gravity III's. By comparison, I usually run in Momentum and Distance models and LOVE them! Three things bother me about the Gravity III's: The upper, the forefoot and the sizing.

The upper gives me a hot spot on the top of my foot because the front of the eyerow is spaced too closely, causing the eyelets to lay over the top of my foot. The scalloped eyebrow makes the issue worse. I use both traditional and Yankz laces. My forefoot position feels awkward. The first eyelet creases over my flex point.

The midfoot/forefoot cushion is less than I'd like for a shoe one ounce heavier than the Gravity. The transition between the mid- and forefoot upper looks sloppy and feels bunchy on my foot (eyerow design?).

These size 13 shoes are ¼ inch longer than my four-lug size 13's, and also 1/8 inch longer than my other 5-lug. The sizing is more critical in the 5-lug shoe because poor positioning of the outer lug on the metatarsal can alter natural pronation during the foot strike and may reduce effectiveness of push off.

I compare these shoes with the Distance. I have 4- and 5-lug. I sized down on my 5-lug Distance to a 12.5 and they rock! I weigh 205 and use my Distances for all training and racing up to half marathon. I don't run more than 10k in my Gravity III's because of my comfort and biomechanic issues.
