Men's NEWTON® FATE II :: It's your fate to fall in love with the newly updated Men's Newton® Fate II. Yep, it's no accident that you've happened upon this fantastic shoe, designed to be the go-to running shoe that's ideal for neutral runners who want that classic Newton® springy responsiveness, lightweight feel, and silky smooth ride. Your feet will feel more comfortable than ever in this latest update that features a new seamless upper with open-weave mesh and no-sew overlays for optimal foot conformity and breathability. Plus, you'll enjoy even more full-foot cushioning and fantastic flexibility in the updated Fate II, complements of its innovative bottom unit.
Features & Benefits:
Newton's go-to shoe for a runner with a nautral gait
Action/Reaction™ Technology: Responsive, trampoline-like cushioning system that absorbs more impact, has quicker bounce-back and loses less energy than a traditional foam-core running shoe
New Seamless Upper with open-weave mesh and no-sew overlays provides optimal foot conformity and breathability
These are a solid shoe. I have 95 miles on the pair I am currently wearing with the longest run in them being 10 miles in which I have ran several runs of that length in them. I run about 40 miles a week. I mainly use these for my tempo runs and sometimes speed workouts.
The major plus to these shoes is the traction, speed and the comfortable feeling. These shoes have a fair amount of cushioning in them. It is more of a firm cushion but still enough for training runs. There is plenty of room for toe splay and this shoe is great for people with wider feet.
The only reason why I am not giving this shoe a 5 star rating is because the fist pair I ordered were defective with the front of the left shoe having ripped in the front after only 28 miles. The replacement pair I have recieved has so far held up good.
Great daily running shoe
I have ran about 60 miles in the Fate 2, and while I was initially concerned that the shoe was slightly smaller than the equivalent size in the original Newton Fate, the shoe opened up around mile 30 and felt far more comfortable. I used a lace lock technique to keep my heel in place as I tend to slip forward in a number of shoes and this helped greatly. The shoes are responsive and comfortable, able to handle my routine run commute to work as well as some weekend road and simple trail run with good pace. Overall a great shoe.

Material, weight and colors are great but Newton is not a shoe for me, I tried to move from ASICS (Nimbus, Metarun) to this and just didn't work.
Newton's are the best!
Great shoe! Only downside is the Toe box slightly more narrow than the First Version of the FATE.
Ran in previous version and like this more
Nice cushioned ride. Great fit right out of the box
Great shoes. Very comfortable.
I love these shoes. They are super comfortable.
They work for me
