Great Shoe for Pose Style Runners (beginners and advanced)

Comments about Mens Newton Running Distance IV Running Shoe:

These continue to be my "go to" shoe for Pose style running. They work well in light trails runs but are super on roads and hard packed roads.

    Comments about Mens Newton Running Distance IV Running Shoe:

    I've been running in the distance since 2010 or so. I had 2 pairs of the yellow/red ones, 2 of the Distance 3, and then got this pair of the 4. Overall, I like the shoe and it is definitely responsive with similar fit to the previous models. The change in tongue is really nice, however, it slides down and to the side quickly and really does not come up high enough if you use lock laces, like I do. Lock lacing these seems to hurt more than any previous model, whether it is the tongue or where the eyeholes are, I'm not sure but would love to see this fixed in the future. Overall, I sitll like the shoes and just completed a half in them, with no issue, but I had to adjust my lacing to accomodate the changes.

      Comments about Mens Newton Running Distance IV Running Shoe:

      I was looking forward to trying the Newtons after running in VFF's for 2 years and then strictly Hoka Cliftons . I first ran a easy 5 miles in the new Distance 4 with socks and they felt OK, toe box a bit tight .My next run was a 9 miler with no socks and I had a couple of issues , the tongues were slipping and moving over to one side. The top of my right foot had cut and was bleeding from a rough spot inside the shoe under the first eye hoop and my left foot got chewed up from the edge of the tongue. I had about 40 miles on the shoes and never felt the "POP" , I'm a midfoot runner and had some wear on the ends of all 5 lugs and that was it. I'll have to return for another pair due to the eye loop popped off on the left shoe.

      I can second the earlier review. This shoe fits well, is comfortable and fast. The improvement in responsiveness is evident, particularly when running up long hills. The value added is more than cosmetic.

        Comments about Mens Newton Running Distance IV Running Shoe:

        I have been running in Newtons for almost 4 years now. I run 15-20 miles per week.

        I originally decided to try them after struggling with some chronic injuries, mostly with my IT Band. Since I switched to Newtons and changed my gait to be more efficient, I've been injury free.

        I LOVED the first Distance model and was NOT a fan of the Distance II and III versions. These feel like a return to the original model - but lighter and more steamlined. The upper has this incredible in that it hugs your feet while almost feeling like it's not there. The 5-lug platform is also an improvement as it feels more stable under the feet. I had rolled my ankle a few times in the original Distance model.

        I highly recommend this shoe. It's a great trainer and is incredibly fast. You'll love them. And if you're new to Newton - please, please, please - set up an adjustment period to get used to them.
