Change is good!

Pros

  • Color And 5 Lug Performan

Cons

  • limited colors

Best Uses

  • Road running

I have never run in a Newton. In fact I was reluctant. However the first run was under 7 miles and then 3. I have one neutral foot and one stability foot so I got these to train my stability foot. So far so good. After first run my calf was tight but that was because of forefoot running. I absolutely love this shoe. I see many great runs wearing them.

Cons

Best Uses

  • Any distance

Have been looking for an alternative to the Distance U since it was discontinued. Thought I couldn't do better than that. Have run 3 PRs in the last 3 weeks in my new Newtons without blisters, chafing, or sore feet. Prefer the 5-lug construction. Love the blue color.

        Bought these for my 16 year old daughter to use for cross country. She uses them as her daily trainers, and loves them. They were comfortable and supportive from the first run. I have a pair of Newton Distance IV and absolutely love them. No matter the run and how much my legs and body may hurt, my feet always feel great!

        Best Uses

        • Road But Also Light Trail

        This is a great shoe to replace the Distance U. I tried other shoes (Hoka One One and Alta) but I am back to Newtons. This one is definitely a keeper. I was able to run with them right out of the box.

        Best Uses

        • Running
        • Walking

        Doing a C25K program and bought these shoes with custom insoles. All-together spent more than I would have liked, but it was worth every penny. Very happy with them. They also don't make your feet look huge look most sneakers do! They have a bump on the bottom which was referred to as an air pocket in the store. It's strange at first but you quickly get used to it. I love these shoes.

                  Best Uses

                    I enjoy running in Newtons to support my mid-foot strike. The five lugs on the sole provide the stability I need to stay safe on the road. I pronate and keep going back to the 5 lugs. Unfortunately, I only average 250 miles out of my shoes, but have found the shoe for me. Ready to break them in for my next marathon.
                    Be safe out there and have fun.

                    Not for everyone

                    By jp

                    from Los Ageles, CA

                    I really wanted to like this one as I've grown to love Newton's, but they are going back. My toes were aching after a few wears and it didn't feel like there was enough cushioning there. It feels fine for a couple of miles, but that's all I can go in them. Not good for more than 3 or 4 miles.

                        I'm have mild pronation. Great support with cushion.

                          Best Uses

                            I've tried a lot of Newtons, have only loved my two latest-the distance 3 and these. It is possible I've only recently learned how to correctly run in Newtons, but I also believe the 5 lugs have helped in comfort and performance. The kismet fits me well, has plenty of toe room, hugs the rest of my foot like a regular running shoe. It does not feel as minimal as my distance 3s and is not quite as fast, but is still great to run in. I love that newton keeps the uppers minimal without a lot of extra padding/stuffing-I hate most regular running shoes because of this. I've grown to love the effortless speed I have with newtons--( I am just trying the hoka cliftons and while they are comfortable and light, i just don't feel as fast and easy in them as in my newtons.) The lugs do wear down rather quickly, I often get a mushy sound on wet pavement, so there are improvements that can be made, but all in all Newtons are my favorite shoe.

                                  This is my third pair of Newtons. I have tried the Isaac S, and Distance U.
                                  What I love about the Kismet has 5 lugs instead of 4 in the Isaac S and Distance U. With 4 lugs my feet rolled out too much and the outside lugs wore down too soon. In my experience, the Newtons run big. I would prefer a tighter fit in the toes and heel. Otherwise, I love these shoes and I will probably buy them again.
