Built For The Bigger Athlete

The Excel is the result of years of work with Mark Schlereth and former professional athletes to make the ultimate athletic shoe for the bigger guy. Crafted from Newton’s acclaimed Gravity+ and enhanced with our most advanced Action Reaction Technology ™ system and next generation materials formulated specifically to handle an exponential increase in weight and force, it delivers a level of performance, comfort and durability that traditional shoes scaled up from a model size could never come close to approaching. If you are new to Newton or have concerns about width, we'd suggest trying a half size up to start.

What Makes The Excel Unique?

Enhanced Cushion

Our new NRG foam is an advanced large cell foam that delivers outstanding impact absorption and rebound compared to other foams. When combined with the XPS+ plate it generates an amazing amount of cushion and energy return with each stride.

Starting Wearing Newtons in 2009 - Never Looked Back

In 2009 I walked into a Luke's Locker in Fort Worth Texas with the plan of buying some new running shoes. I had just started doing triathlons so I was looking to get all of my gear in place which included running shoes. While there, a salesman proposed a running shoe from a company I had never heard of before. He said his wife just started wearing them and now she won't wear anything else. i asked him what was special or unique about these shoes and he went on to explain about the shoe design and how the design promotes more efficient running. I was intrigued. But the price was high - $175. Before pulling the trigger I took some literature. I wanted to study up before making the investment. Long story short, the whole idea of the midfoot strike and running more efficiently resonated with me. I had been a competitive runner since age 9; quite a successful one. But somewhere along the way my running form had gone astray and I didn't even realize it. Until I started reading up on the Newtons. Long story short, I bought my first pair. And just like they said, it was going to be an adjustment to the body. Almost immediately, however my running form, efficiency, speed - improved dramatically. What used to be hard became easy again. At age 40 I had discovered running all over again. Since that time I have worn nothing but Newtons for my training and races. I use them for the run leg of my triathlons and for the 5 and 10k races I do during the winter months here in Texas. I like these shoes a lot - they are light weight, super responsive - their design promotes a more efficient running form which makes running more enjoyable, less pounding on your joints - you can run farther and faster with less effort. I appreciate that sales person who introduced me to these shoes back in 2009. IN my last two races, I finished second in the Fort Worth Turkey Trot and 3rd at the Dallas BMW 5K -(in my age group 50-54) - Both were some of the biggest races held in Fort Worth and Dallas respectively. I was wearing my Newtons. I know that there are a lot of shoes out there on the market and their designs seems to be more cushioning - especially in the heal area - I've noticed. I'm no running doctor but I wonder whether that design promotes heal striking. In any event, I know that the Newtons are designed to promote us to run the way we were meant to run as humans. It's been a joyful ride and I look forward to continuing.

I’ve had these for about month or so… they seem to perform well. I’m not an avid runner but a former athlete that hasn’t ran in years. For my 2 Mile jogs they’ve fit the bill. For the record I’m about 5’11 215, the extra cushion on the ball of the feat encourages flat footed runners like myself to use correct form. Time will tell how they hold up. Only thing I would recommend changing is to add a little more padding to the tongue. I recommend these still.
