Born To Perform

The Elite is a true homage to the purist racing heritage of Newton. A modified version of our minimalistic racer initially only available to our elite race teams, it’s become a favorite for those looking for spike-like performance but want enough structure and cushion for fast miles.

Elevated Comfort

Designed to maximize comfort and security, the ultra breathable upper with an offset lacing system ensures an optimal fit and security to make sure you get the most from every stride.

Dynamic Performance

Newton’s technological edge lies in our proprietary Action-Reaction Technology™. The Elite is the purest incarnation of this, powered by the active movement of the 4 lugs it creates a trampoline-like effect that absorbs impact better and provides a quicker bounce back with less energy loss than other running shoes.

Best running shoe for me..

My distance elites are the most comfortable and little running shoe I’ve ever found. I found Newton over 15 years ago after trying many different brands. Newton cares about the runners response, Road feel, and Comfort.
Keep up the great work you definitely have a return customer with me..

Great Shoe

Excellent shoe for middle distance running. Very light and sturdy. I should be able to get 500 miles out of these shoes. It would be good if they added blue to color options.
