    Comments about Womens Newton Running Distance U Running Shoe:

    I have always wanted to try a Newton shoe and finally decided to try one for summer. I run about 450 miles a month and wanted something light weight. I have a natural mid-foot plant to toe off gait, which I read was a good fit for this shoe. I got home this afternoon and decided to try it out. I was going to just do a couple miles at a slow pace. Before I knew it I was finishing 17 miles at an 8 min/mile. I didn't even feel like I had gone for a run; no blisters, no soreness, no fatigue, etc. I guess that is the difference between a decent shoe and a great shoe - a great shoe is one you can wear on a long run the first day and have it feel like one you have already ran 200 miles in. I can't wait to go again tomorrow! I would not recommend this shoe for someone who heel plants or runs on their toes.

    Comments about Womens Newton Running Distance U Running Shoe:

    I have been struggling to find a good lightweight performance stability shoe. Have worn Asics DS Trainers forever. The recent models just have not worked for me. I ordered Newton's, reluctant about the cost but have read so much about them; thought they were worth a try. I LOVE this shoe. So much so that I can't picture running in anything else; even for racing. I am already a mid to forefoot striker so I really had no break in period - out of the box and off I went. I have already noticed wear on the tread so I have a feeling that 350-400 miles may be the absolute max in them. Worth every penny.

    By erica

    from Undisclosed

    Comments about Womens Newton Running Distance U Running Shoe:

    Here are my thoughts on these shoes: they are great....and if you are a heel striker it will likely take you longer to adapt (if you check out their website you can see suggestions for this), but since I had been working on it for so long it was a near natural transition for me. Some of the reviewers say not to let a shoe fix your biomechanical inefficiencies, but I disagree. You have to retrain the body, and most shoes out there are designed for heel striking, so you will have a tough time adapting your running gait if you keep running in the wrong shoes.
    The only reason I don't wear these "racers" everyday, is because they are very light and don't have a ton of cushoning (I wanted to get the trainers, but they did not have them in stock at a local store).
    Good luck!

    I have been running in these shoes for almost 6 months, and just ordered my 2nd pair. I looove them. I have a flat foot, with mod. pronation. I had no trouble transitioning to them as their website says it may take time. Highly recommend.

    Comments about Womens Newton Running Distance U Running Shoe:

    I run in Brooks for stability and cushioning, but would always have a soreness under the ball of my left foot and on the outside of my left ankle. It would feel better when I was walking barefoot. I read about these shoes and decided to give them a try. After running speed intervals in them, my feet feel GREAT! That's a first!!!! My only complaint is that the back of the heel comes up a bit higher than I'm used to and I rubbed a little blister. Be sure to wear socks that don't ride down. The lugs on the sole of the shoe really kept my foot landing the way it's supposed to. I'm hoping that using these Newtons for intervals and race day running, I'll develop better form and alleviate any future foot pain no matter what shoes I wear.

        Comments about Womens Newton Running Distance U Running Shoe:

        This is my first pair of Newtons and I'm in love. Newton recommends that you buy the shoes 1 size larger than your normal size. I usually get my running shoes in a size 8 and went for the whole size up at a 9. I had my doubts about the fit before I got them. But, once I had them, put them on and started running, the fit was perfect.

        My feet have not been this comfortable while running in a long time. I was having issues with my arches getting tired in all sorts of running shoes. I've tried a variety of brands and insoles and I just kept getting these built up shoes that were supposed to control pronation and provide cushioning, but were just heavy and only made my feet feel slightly better. These Newtons were a Godsend. I use my other running shoes as walking around shoes now. Now when I run, I run exclusively in these Newtons.

        I don't know if these shoes are making me run faster, but I feel like they do. If nothing else, they allow me to go out and run more often because my feet feel better during and after running.

        I get a lot of compliments on the appearance of the shoes. The bright pink color is eye catching.

            I have been training in Newton's Motus Motion All Weather trainers for 5 months and LOVE them. After reading the reviews, I tried these and after a few weeks of 5-8 mile runs my IT bands on both knees started to bother me. Fortunately, I can exchange them and I am going to try the Motion model. Hopefully, that will do the trick. Overall, I am a Newton convert!

              I had got a size 8 (my normal size and had to exchange it for a 7.5 because it was way to large).Overall the fit of the shoe was good the toe box was a little to wide for my liking (I like mine snug). But the heel of the shoe was so tight that it gave me blisters on my heel. The shoe was easy to run and easy to get use to the levers on the bottom. I loved the color and wished that it would not have given me blisters because I definitley would have kept the shoes. I would recommend this shoe to a friend as long as the heel did not bother them.

                    I did the quintessential no-no and switched shoes just before a race (I know). I went from the Newton Distance to the Newton Distance U. Both shoes are great, but my knees prefer the version with less motion control/stability. I am going back to the Distance and sticking with it.

                    Service and delivery comments:

                      This is my second pair of Newtons. I love them. They are so light weight and comfortable. My running form is so improved. I'm running better and faster than ever. I've run marathons and half marathons in my Newtons and my legs feel great! Amazing colors.

                      I bought these shoes because my knee hurts. They seem to help but the bottom is already showing wear and I have only had them a few weeks. Will run a marathon soon for the true test on how my knee feels. The toe box does help you concentrate on running more on the toes.

                        I have just started running in these, so far so good, I was already working on a midfoot/forefoot strike and this shoe makes it easier for me to achieve that. I am looking forward to see if I can improve my stride and eventually speed.

                          Awesome shoe. [...]I will definitely buy another pair one day for mid-foot striking practice while running. My only qualm or hesitation is that with this barefoot running craze we're all buying into, the most important suggestion is to eliminate unnecessary support in order to allow your foot to move freely and to develop natural mechanisms for shock absorption. Newtons may provide too much stabilization in FORCING you to strike mid to front foot, by changing the shape of the soul. I wonder if this too is limiting your natural foot motion. But may be a good trainer too, everybody loves them.

                            I've been a runner for 34 years and have been buying light weight running shoes the last few years and what a positive difference in my running. These are great for short and long distance running. I especially like the breathable material and the width. Most other shoes are always tight in the width (even though I don't have a wide foot...just normal) but these are
                            the perfect width. As usually with any running shoe I order 1/2 size larger.

                                The running shoe is a dream come true. It is a minimalist running shoe - light weight, breathable, with some support and very little heel cushioning.

                                  This shoe has made my runs faster and I feel like I can go that extra mile. My knees do not hurt anymore. It took a few runs to get used to for some reason the tops of my feet ached but that only lasted a few runs.

                                  This shoe has corrected my running in such a short time. Balance, gait and technique are where they should be!!!

                                    Have had 2 pairs of Newtons. I really like them. For my running style and body type, these work great. But I caution anyone from buying them without doing the research. They are not built for everyone. My first pair took a long time to break in b/c it changed my running style.

                                    I love these shoes! Honestly I first picked up these shoes b/c they were hot pink and then the sales girl told me they would make me run faster. Personally I did not believe her but I figured I would look good wearing them. Wow she was right, I cut 10 mins. off my 1/2 marathon time since I bought these and I am running way faster now then ever. I am a heel striker so my first pair wore out pretty quick but I am starting to get the hang of this mid foot running thing and I have to say I love it. Just wish I did not have to break the bank to get a new pair every 4 to 6 months.

                                      After breaking my 3rd metatarsal during a 15k I was looking for a shoe that would give me the best forefoot support and allow my feet to pronate naturally and get stronger. These shoes were the best overall. I tried 3 different shoes prior to Newtons. I have been running daily since my Dr. gave me the OK. My feet and legs feel great and I have had no problems with these shoes. Love them.

                                      I have been running in these shoes for almost 6 months, and just ordered my 2nd pair. I looove them. I have a flat foot, with mod. pronation. I had no trouble transitioning to them as their website says it may take time. Highly recommend.

                                      Here are my thoughts on these shoes: they are great....and if you are a heel striker it will likely take you longer to adapt (if you check out their website you can see suggestions for this), but since I had been working on it for so long it was a near natural transition for me. Some of the reviewers say not to let a shoe fix your biomechanical inefficiencies, but I disagree. You have to retrain the body, and most shoes out there are designed for heel striking, so you will have a tough time adapting your running gait if you keep running in the wrong shoes. The only reason I don't wear these "racers" everyday, is because they are very light and don't have a ton of cushoning (I wanted to get the trainers, but they did not have them in stock at a local store). Good luck!

                                      I am a "pidgeon toed" runner who has medium arched feet with moderate pronation, and a previous heel striker with a twist at toe off. I was given a pair of Newtons by a friend and I love them! My gait abnormalities have been almost completely corrected, and it took me no time at all to lose my heavy heel strike pattern. I did not have any aches and pains while breaking in these shoes. No injuries since I have been using them. My biggest complaint is that the outersole material, on the lugs and toe, wear very quickly. Surprisingly, for a shoe that does not encourage heel strike, the most durable outersole material is in the heel! At over $150 pair, my addiction to newtons has become an expensive habit due to the quick wear.

                                      This is the most awesome running shoe ever! I've tried sooo many different types of running shoes and always had hip or plantar pain. Not with Newton's. I've had no pain since switching to Newton's
