So far, so good, but upper is iffy.
Hey Cam, Thanks for the note, really appreciate the kind words. The Elite is a super fast shoe and a real pleasure to get out on, but should mention a couple things that might help you understand a little more about the story/history of the shoe, first off, the shoe is made to be true to Newton's original racer model, so that's why we use the unstructured seamless upper, most minimalistic race shoes like this will come out of the box looking a little sloppy until you get a foot into it, but assure you that doesn't speak to the value (or performance). In fact, the shoe is made of virtually identical materials to the Distance and Distance S, but those models have evolved how we tune the upper to fit the foot and perform in ways we don't apply to the Elite to keep it true to it's heritage. So bottom line, anything you might be perceiving is probably related to this and we promise that Newtons are made with the most advanced materials on the planet and we stand strongly behind the quality, durability, and performance every shoe we sell. And you can ask a lot of the Elite fans and they will say what they love is that 'old school' fit and feel, but we also realize what they love about it might not be perceived the same way by someone new to the model. So hope this helps, but don't be afraid to reach out if you've got any questions whatsoever, happy to help!
