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!

If leopards wore shoes...
Great pair of running shoes. I ran my first half marathon in them and placed in my age group. The distance elite has that naked feel of the pavement while offering springiness and protection. Highly recommended.

great pair of running shoes.
This is a great pair of running shoes, very light and great help with picking up speed on the track. I thought having one lug less would be an issue, but it has not been the case. I like them better than my Distance.

Worth the experiment
This is my second pair of Newtons and I continue to be impressed. This particular shoe is incredibly lightweight and responsive. I am a trackie that likes to do road races as well. The Distance Elite is great for both! PRs, here I come...

Truly outstanding running shoe for those runners who enjoy a truly natural running shoe that permits you to work every muscle/tendon in your feet. I have a high arch and narrow foot and this shoe is absolutely perfect.. The only negative is that these shoes can absolutely NOT be used in cold weather (40F or below) even if wearing wool socks with a liner.

only shoes i can run in
Years of It band issues , cortisone shots, expensive stiff heavy orthotics.
My wife and I join a Newton run in Boulder and I try out some shoes during it.
Now several pairs and years of Newtons and no It band issues!
No more nasty (control ) shoes!
Moving my pivot point back fixed
all my problems.
These are the lightest fastest most comfy Newtons I have had yet.
