Best shoe on the market
I came across my first pair of Newton’s at an expo for Rev3 Half IM, 6 years ago. I bought the distance U, which was amazing. The Distance Elite just tops the U. I love,love this shoe. I’ve been hooked on Newton’s for 6 years now and I can honestly say that no other shoe compares to the Distance Elite. I’ll forever be a Newton runner.

New shoes
Have been Newton fan for many years. Bought this new shoe at Berlin Expo. Am I crazy for running a marathon in brand new pair?

These are the best and most comfortable of all the Newton Running Shoes!
What can I say, these are the best running shoes. Nothing beats the original four lug Newtons. They're super lightweight and responsive. I feel like I get an extra spring in my step when I wear them, almost like cheating while I'm running. I truly hope the four lugs are never discontinued. These are the greatest running shoe out of all the running shoes ever made! I get excited about going to the gym when I wear these. Not only are they stylish, but they truly are the most comfortable shoes world!
