Comments about Womens Newton Running Distance III Running Shoe:
I have been running for 3 years. I began with Merrill walking shoes using the Galloway method. Then began solid running 3 months later and bought my first running shoe - Brooks Ghost 6. I loved it. However when I tried the 7 two years later and described it as "too much shoe" a store clerk pulled these out. I fell in love! I couldn't believe how light they felt! I was given no instruction toease into them and never had a problem. I run about 16 miles per week, which is not a lot for most avid runners, but I'm picking up pace and mileage quickly and still these shoes keep me happy and healthy!
They are described as encouraging good form by way of the 5 lugs that help us to land and push off correctly. Most experienced runners prefer the 5 lug system to the 4 lugs on the elite and older models. I never tried the 4 lugs so can't speak to that. They are light and *do* speed ya up!
The only thing I don't like is the color. Next year's will be lime green. Hopefully they will take a cue from Brooks and get more creative. I bought two pairs and painted one. :-)
Also, if you're an experienced runner, I've heard you should ease into this shoe.
Feels true to size
Feels true to width
