    Comments about Mens Newton Running Distance Running Shoe:

    The shoes definitely promote a forefoot strike.
    I was disappointed in the durability of the lugs. I strike on the outer edge of my forefoot and after 350 miles, the lugs are severely altered with the outside lugs being almost flat and the inside being nearly untouched. This altered shape makes it uncomfortable for walking or running. In addition, the lugs are starting to detach from the base of the shoe. Very disappointing, considering the high price of the brand. I was hoping to get more mileage before the next pair.

      Comments about Mens Newton Running Distance Running Shoe:

      This is my second pair of Newton Distance. The update has a softer liner, but I can still go sockless and not get a blister when doing my triathlon training. The shorter heel helps to feel closer to the ground even though the drop is the same as the previous generation. These are great for speed training or the long weekend run. I wore my previous pair for over a year having put over a 1000 miles on them. I will definintely continue to use Newton's for years to come.

        Comments about Mens Newton Running Distance Running Shoe:

        I have been using these for a few weeks now, having switched to them from Brooks PureConnects. These are really comfortable and, as advertised, really reward a good mid-foot strike and Chi style posture. I think they are a much better option than a true zero drop barefoot shoe (like a Merrell Road Glove) for me; the cushioning is much appreciated. Interestingly, the lugs -- which feel so pronounced when you walk in them -- are unnoticeable when you are running.

        Like most running shoes, I am a 10 in these and a 9.5 in dress shoes. I am 6' an 172 lbs, run 15-20 miles a week.

        Oh, and my wife thinks they are positively hideous. So perhaps I should add that to the "Pro" column!!!

          Comments about Mens Newton Running Distance Running Shoe:

          I don't usually write reviews, but this shoe deserves one. I've been running for over thirty years, am 5' 10', 160 lbs., 48, and logging 40 or so miles a week. I'm an avid fan of Nike shoes and for the last 4 years or so have been training in Vomeros (long slow runs) and/or Lunarglides (intermediate faster runs). I try to run at least one full and several half marathons a year and have recently been racing in Streaks. I'm just peaking for the Disney Goofy (half a full back to back in January) and have been pacing out at 8:34 for my intermediate (10 milers) runs. I ran in these shoes for the first time last week and - wow! 10 miles, sub-8s, same effort (heart rate). The shoes reward you if you mid-foot strike with added forward momentum, and punish you if heel strike with minimal cushioning. All in all, a great shoe.

            great shoe for road or trail. most comfortable shoe out there. I have now purchased 5 Newtons and am always satisfied with the comfort and feel. take time getting aclimated to the shoe, but once you have adjusted, no better ride out there. I am 58, 5'7" and 155lbs, compete in IM's and ultra's.
            Keep it up Newton!

              Comments about Mens Newton Running Distance Running Shoe:

              The upgraded Distance still has the Newton responsiveness, but is noticeably lighter and the front of the shoe is more streamlined. Nice color too. This shoe is really easy on feet and legs and does (at least in my case) foster a faster turnover with shorter stride.

                I use this shoe for road running and marathons. The advantages of this upgrade are these: It is lighter, yet remains very responsive. The lower profile makes the shoe more comfortable, at least for me. The forefoot has been streamlined, so that the shoe looks more like a racing shoe. Best shoe I have ever run in.
