Best yet...
Started in the '07 Gravity and switched to the Distance when they first showed up - have been through almost all variations since. I loved the Distance 6 last year but the 7 just blows it away. New uppers are much more forgiving to a "unique" foot shape, even lighter than before, with still plenty of shoe for a long, long race. And who can argue with the colors! Thanks guys - another winner.

Great shoe
Picked these up for the last month of training before a spring marathon. Great from the start. No break in period required. Light and responsive. Worked great for marathon.

Excellent updated version of this shoe
This is my favorite of all the Newton shoes (and I've worn them all). It's better for training than the Distance Elite, but also fast enough for racing. Couldn't speak more highly of it.

Simply the best
Once again with the evolution of each model and generation the products keep getting better. I've been running in Newton Shoes since 2010, wouldn't change to another brand and I always recommend Newton to anyone! Thanks for making a superior product!

Pulling me away from my Altra obsession
I've only been running for about 1.5 years, but Altra is the only brand that has allowed me to not only train in, but also move up to 13.1. Escalante's have been my go to for a while now. I ordered the Gravity VII a few months back, and they just didn't fit right for me, or feel right on longer runs. Part of the reason for that, is my right foot is longer and slightly wider than my left. I decided to swap out those for the Distance VII. One of the best CS experiences I have had. They shipped me these immediately, before I even sent the others back. Since receiving them, my Altra's have sat unused for two weeks. Their light, cushioned, and fast. They fit me perfect in my size 11. To me they feel like the perfect Hybrid of cushioned and fast. I've run nearly all of my training/taper distances in the short time i've had them, and they seem to fit EVERY need. These are special. I can definitely see myself buying a back up pair. Great service and great product.
