Love my Newtons!
I have already worn out one pair of Newton shoes working out and replaced them with another brand due to price. I had developed a painful knot on the bottom middle of my foot, not plantar fasciitis. It had to do with the connecting tendons of my toes to my heel. My doctor had told me he would have to send me to a foot specialist if it got worse. I decided to give Newton another try since the first pair was so good figuring the price would be what I would pay for a doctor visit. Within a week, the knot was gone! My feet are happy! These shoes are definitely worth the money!

Nice training shoe
I use my Fate II running shoes in my rotation for training, specifically my longer runs such as 10 and above.

Responsive and comfortable
I fell in love with Newton shoes in 2011 after running the Marine Corps Marathon. Although other models have been very comfortable, the Fate is the most responsive.

Women's Fate II
I've worn nothing but the gravity IV's which I absolutely love but wanted to try something new. While I like the Fate, I will ultimately go back to the gravities because I prefer its tongue and the laces are longer which are better for my high instep. Otherwise, I have no complaints.

I liked the original Fate better
I loved, loved, loved my original pair of Newton Fates. When I saw the Fate II on sale, I thought they would be (hopefully) even better! I have been wearing them for about a month now, though, and they are not quite as good as my originals. This may be just the peculiarities of my own feet - maybe everyone else loves the II's even more than the original version! For me, the newer version doesn't feel as lightweight, and it also feels like the heel is built up a bit more, which seems to cause my feet to slide forward into the toe box, making my 8.5 feel just slightly too small. It's still a really comfy shoe, but I'll likely try another style for running and the Fate II will end up just being a walking-around shoe. I still adore Newton and think their products are far superior to almost every other running shoe out there ... but I wish I had bought a second pair of my original Fate shoes so I could wear them now that my old ones are worn out! Lesson learned: always buy two of anything you really love!!
