Men's Kismet II



* Required Fields

The new Kismet II gives you comfort and stability, all day long. Heat-welded overlays and the extended medial bridge offer a wider platform for the runners that need more stability. The updated Kismet II now offers a more breathable upper and metatarsal stretch panels that help the shoe better accommodate the shape of your foot. Beveled lugs allow for a smoother ride and offer a great introduction to Newton’s Action/Reaction Technology. With a peppy, responsive kick and ample cushioning in the forefoot and heel, you'll wonder how you ever ran without them!

*Due to the structured fit of this model, some people may find it more comfortable to purchase a 1/2 size larger than their normal size.

Love the shoe...need consistent way to size Newton’s
First off, I am a returning Newton wearer after being gone a couple of years. I was a fan favorite of the Newton distance line for years.

After taking a couple of years off from the Newton brand, I returned back to the KII because of the stability and less prevalent lug feel.

I absolutely love them! My only comment (which is for Newton in general), is that sizing is inconsistent from one design to the next or generation to the next. I luckily tried the KII at my local running store before buying them directly online. I am glad I did because I would have otherwise ordered a 1/2 size too small. While I know Newton calls out to order a half size bigger than an everyday shoe. I actually find that the full size difference for me is needed to get the lugs placed correctly where it needs to be.

Advice is to try the shoe before you buy at a running store with a trained expert. You will not be disappointed!

Really great shoe
I wanted a very mild stability shoe and the Kismet II has been perfect. It took me about two runs to get used to the POP2 forefoot lugs but now I don't want to run in anything else! Order a half size up.

Love these shoes. I had a pair of original Kismets and this is my 2nd pair of Kismet II's. I use them for training and for 70.3 & IM distance events. Highly recommend!

Size matters
Ordered the same size as all my previous Newton Running shoes and they were too small by about a half size.

Wow, I'm in love
So, so comfortable. Love the fit. Literally writing this after my first run on them. New runner here and could not be happier. Shoes definitely helped with my form. Knee pain seems to have gone away. If your new to running, you'll love these.
