Originally designed for our elite racing team, this shoe was tested and loved by some of the fastest runners in the country before being released to the public. The classic 4 lug Newton ride with a seamless upper feels fast, light and efficient. The Distance Elite is great for high or low distance training and racing. We hope you love it as much as we do!

Best Shoe EVER!!
Light, poppy, supportive for any distance. Light enough like a true racing flat, but still gives a little support for someone like me who tends to hit the ground hard. Breathable, fits well on the foot. In my 20+ years of road racing, this is the best shoe that I have ever worn!

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!

Great shoe
Love these shoes. I've been running in them for about four years and I've tried a few other shoes during that time and always come back to these. They are a harder minimalist shoe, but there is definitely material between your feet and the ground. I'm 5'2" and about 120 lbs and slightly over pronate and I love them. There are times after longer runs (i.e. 13+) I will feel the run a bit in the arches of my feet and ankles but not enough to detract from the positives of the shoe. Praying newton never gets rid of them!

favorite racing shoe
Throw back to the 4 lug , original newtons that I fell in love with. These are my favorite racing shoes. The 4 lug is light and responsive, the shoe is comfortable and I can still fit in my orthotics with a good fit.
