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.

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!

Super lightweight
I've tried the previous iteration of the Distance Elites and always had trouble with the shoe at my achilles tendon (it feels like there is a piece of plastic digging into my heel). These new ones are great- I've had no issues. They are really lightweight, and it barely feels like you're wearing shoes - the all over mesh means no foot claustrophobia! Great for hot days where your feet are swollen. I've only used these for short distances so far (6 miles max) but I'm going to keep upping the mileage. I wear regular Newton Distances for my typical race distances (marathon, half). I think I could run at least a half in these Elites - not sure if they have enough support for a marathon though. GREAT for speed races, like a 5k.
