      Comments about Mens Newton Running MV2 Running Shoe:

      The new Newton shoe is a neutral performance shoe weighing in at 5.9 oz. and a zero heel-to-toe drop. I would highly recommend it for mid-foot strikers who currently run in a 4 (approximately) mm drop but want move to a zero drop. If you are a heel striker, or you've never run in a low drop, I would not recommend it.


      It is a zero drop, and they give you pads to put in the heel if you want a 3mm drop. I am used to the previous shoes with a drop, but I wouldn't put the pads in, they look cheap and may last 2 weeks.


      The lugs are different than the previous Newtons. You have 5 instead of 4 lugs, and they are shorter and harder. Certainly a different feel than the previous and take getting used to. Stepping on iron rain grates is a major hazard.


      Upper is light and very breathable. Very nice and comfortable.

      Weight and Sizing

      The shoe weighs in at 5.9 oz. for a size 9 men's. If you are a previous Newton shoe wearer and getting these for racing and like a snug fit, then your current size will work well. If you want these for everyday or like a slightly looser fit, go for an additional half size up from your previous Newton size.

      Who will like these best

      If you are a heel striker, then I would NOT recommend these shoes. If you have already run in a low drop and you are moving towards zero drop and a mid foot striker, I think these will be the shoes of choice (with a break in period). If you are a heel striker and moving towards mid foot, the Kinvara 2 or the other Newtons would be better for you. Adjusting to a zero drop takes time and I would suggest, for most, dropping gradually.

      I am a 5" 9" 170 lbs runner. I run about 25-30 miles a week.

      Hope that helps you!
