The Newton Secret Formula
Action/Reaction Technology

The secret formula powering the speed of Newton Running shoes is its proprietary Action/Reaction Technology. Generated by the active movement of the lugs, it creates a responsive, trampoline-like cushioning system that provides quicker bounce-back and loses less energy than a traditional foam-core running shoe.

Level Platform

Over time, many shoe designs have become thicker, softer and heavier with greater heel heights. In the spirit of making every stride better, Newton shoes feature lower heel to toe drops to put you in a more natural running position.

Full Foot Cushioning

If you love the responsive yet cushioned feel of the lugs in the forefoot, you'll be happy to find out the same technology exists in the heel. With Newton Running, you get full-foot cushioning and protection.

The best distance
I am a loyal fan of the distance line but I wanted to try these. I love the lighter feel and the mesh upper layer. The show is narrower than the regular distance for me and def helps with reaching my goals of getting faster on shorter runs. Please continue to make these and expand on different colors!

Change of Pace!
I have been a loyal Saucony and ON fan for quite some time, but I recently found out that I was a heel striker and wanted to shift my running style. After a few months in these shoes I can now say that I've increased my SPM and my calves have become a lot stronger to support my longer or more intensive speed workouts! I look forward to trying more Newton sneakers to see what other type of results that I can have. I am definitely pleased with this purchase and would recommend these shoes to anyone. (Take it slow in the beginning, you'll be sore!)

Best shoes for the pavement!
I’ve been running for 18+ years competitively and recreationally and there’s no long-Distance shoe that comes close to Newton when it comes to running pavement! I started with the Fates about 1.5 years ago and these are my second Newton purchase. My feet have never felt better running! Training for my last half marathon, I shaved about 45 sec off my mile splits and I attribute it to Newton’s and my body feeling it’s best when running! I’ve struggled with all kinds of foot pains and strains over the years, but I can honestly say my feet have always been happy with Newton’s! The lugs, wide toe box and zero heel drop are designed with a purpose. Thank you Newton, and please never stop developing your great line of running shoes!

Please never get rid of these shoes
I've tried the Women's Distance and ended up coming back to these. I LOVE them and have contemplated stocking up in case they ever stop making the shoe. Please don't! I've run full marathons in them and they've always been great for me!

Best shoe ever
I've been wearing these 4-lug Newtons for years and years and they continue to be the best shoe I've ever worn. Thanks for continuing to make them for us loyalists!
