Product Details

Originally designed for our elite racing team, this shoe was tested and loved by some of the fastest runners in the country before being released to the public. The classic 4 lug Newton ride with a seamless upper feels fast, light and efficient. The Distance Elite is great for high or low distance training and racing. We hope you love it as much as we do!

Race ready
I've raced 4 IRONMANs in this shoe. It's super lightweight and breathable. The open mesh helps with drainage from splashing water on myself at every aid station. This is the first shoe I've been blister free in after a marathon. yay!

Super lightweight, little support
I love Newtons because the toe box is usually wide, and I have normal feet, but with wide toes. These shows fit that norm - very comfortable in the toe but not too loose. I compared these to the women's distance III and they were the winner. I'm not the biggest fan of the new lug technology and all the foam on the bottom. These felt like the Newtons I originally fell in love with. Incredibly lightweight and make running seem easier. Took one star off because there's not a lot of support (compared to other shoes at the same weight and the Distance III), and the ankle is REALLY low, so even my no-show socks show a lot.

Amazing shoe!
As with all Newton shoes they take some getting use to. Once you adjust its almost like running on clouds. These shoes are not only comfortable, extremely lightweight they are the most beautiful shoes I've owned. The color combination really stands out. They feel very similar to the Distance shoe just a little lighter. They make me feel elite, even though I'm far from elite status :)
I sure hope they continue making/evolving the Distance Elite model.

I love these running shoes
I have purchased a total of 7 or 8 pairs of these running shoes. I use them for every race - 5K to marathon. They are great - feel great - not bulky - built for speed.

Best shoe ever for me
This is my 2nd pair. I have been running for 2 years and I have brought of 6 pairs of newtons. The Elite or my favorite pair to run in. I am note sure if they are made for long distance because they where out to fast. I have not own these that long and I am about to order another pair, because this is the best shoe that I have ran in.

Run large, Minimal support
These shoes look very nice, and they feel light as air. However, they actually fit quite large on my narrow foot. Because of that, my runs are a lot harder on my shins, knees, and back. I really wish Newton would bring back the Lady Isaacs.
