My first Newton!
This is my introduction into Newton Running. This is my new favorite shoe and I won't be looking back! The fit and feel of this shoe is great right out of the box. I can't think of any negatives. I would recommend this shoe to anyone curios about Newton Running.

Loving this shoe!
I decided to try a shoe with some support in it after and I have been extremely happy with the Kismet. The P.O.P 2 platform fits my running abilities perfectly and has just the right amount of cushion and support for me. I love this shoe! With the release of an alternate color scheme I'll be coming back for another pair...how about something in blue? =)

Great shoes
This is my first pair of newtons and they fit great! I have wide feet and most other shoes have fit tight but these were perfect. I had a little bit of calve soreness getting used to the lugs but got over it in a few days. I've had great runs afterwards.

Best shoes I've had
Title says it all. The knobs on the forefoot tread propel my steps. Very light, but comfortable and stable. These shoes made running enjoyable for me again.

Not Sir Isaacs
I ran in many pair of Sir Isaac stability shoes and loved them.
I tried a pair of Kismets when they came
out. I did not love or even like them. They were soft, but not cushioned, way too flexible, no spring like the Sir Isaac's and went flat way too soon. There was absolutely no modecum of stability.
So Newton changed and I changed shoe manufacturer.
