* Required Fields

The Newton Running Kismet 4 delivers the perfect fusion of comfort and stability. The new Kismet features Newtonium cushioning that amps up the responsiveness and provides extra durability. This shoe performs all day long. Heat-welded overlays and the extended medial bridge offer a wider platform for the runners that need more stability. 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, be prepared to put them on and never take them off. Except in the shower. Take them off when you shower.

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.

Great as always. Love the new laces!
I've been wearing Newton Kismets for three years straight now and I'm on my 6th pair (Kismet 4: green and yellow). I believe this is my second review but this time I'm reviewing the Kismet 4. I love the color and the laces on these are much better than the previous models. Other than that, I don't notice much difference compared to the older models. They continue to be consistent shoes for me with the same level of comfort and feel when running in them. These shoes fit me like a glove and I swear by them. As long as you guys don't change anything drastically on these, I'll be a forever Newton Kismet consumer & runner.

Love . . .colors?
I took a chance on a recommendation to switch to these shoes and I LOVE THEM! I feel like I get more out of my legs when I run and there is plenty of room for my foot to move naturally.

I just wish they launched more than one color at a time. Also all of the other pairs just launched another color but not this version? Is a new color coming perhaps?

Runs big
These run about a half size larger than the motions, so if you're looking to diversify your stability shoes, get the kismet a half size smaller than your motions!

Love Love Love Newtons
This is my 15th + pair of Newtons, and I adore them. When they stopped selling them through Road Runner, I tried a few other brands since I was already at the store. I could NEVER go back to wearing anything else!!! I have had all of the Kismet editions, and this is my favorite color and comfort. Thank you for continuing to make these, I wouldn't be able to run without them!

Newtons are a game changer
I am a huge fan of the Newton Kismet tennis shoes! They provide just the right amount of support as well as room in the toe box, for my 4 mile daily runs. I also have a narrow heel and spent years running in ASICS / Saucony / Mizuno shoes tied with a special knot to keep them from slipping in the back. These shoes stay in place, help prevent over-pronation and never smell bad! I am on my 3rd pair of Kismets and highly recommend them.

My only suggestion would be that they provide a navy or grey ( conserrvative colored ) Kismet each year to allow me to wear them with my scrubs.
