I spoke with a Newton Rep at a marathon expo before purchasing. I highly recommend seeking out a fit specialist before purchasing. With that said these were recommended to me because they will last a little longer with marathon training than the Distance due to the heal components. I transitioned over from Mizunos and had no problems. Start slow and low for mileage like they suggest.
I agree with the other comments about the insole. The one that comes with the shoe is pretty unsupportive. I use an insole with some arch support. I do wish the shoe, considering the price, came with a better insole.
Over all the shoe is exceptionally comfortable. They are slightly wide, but once I am running I don't notice any slipping or sliding. I have a narrow heal and I have absolutely no heal slippage, a major plus in my book.
I can't comment on how long they will last, but I have heard 250-300 miles. I typically get about 250 on my shoes before I start to cycle them out of rotation.
I love these shoes. I am a mid foot striker with a slight pronation. A friend recommended these and although they are expensive I thought they would be worth a try. The info that came in the box suggested starting out with short runs. I have run 3 3 milers, and one 5 miler in these so far and I love them. I normally wear Asics but my Asics now feel like bricks after wearing these Only issue I had was the cushioning is a bit lacking. I added a RRS cushion insole and now they are perfect. The sizing info on this shoe suggests to size up 1/2 size but I found that I needed a full size up from my street shoe size for proper fit. If these turn out to be as good for long runs as they are for short, these may be the only shoe I will wear in the future
Bought Old Model because of the 4 Lugs :)
I have been wearing the Newton Gravity for 5 years --I loved this shoe!! The newer model that came out with the 5 Lugs did not feel the same :( Definitely comfortable --but too comfy and squishy when i started running in them . A foot injury reappeared after being gone for years--I switched back to some of my old worn out 4 lugs model shoes and it felt better. I am a college runner and run at least 5o miles per week. I only bought the Motion because the old model of Gravity's were gone. I like this shoe even better than your newer 5 lug models. Please go back to your old style--they had such a better feel ! I miss them and I'm not sure what will happen when my 2 old models wear out and I can't buy any more :( Thanks!

Finally happy with a shoe that I can wear to train, and helps my natural stride. I had been running in more minimal shoes but wanted to up my weekly mileage , but my legs were getting tired on the long runs in the minimal shoes. Traditional style shoes made my legs cramp after being used to minimal shoes, so I tried the newtons, and they are what I was looking for!! No more totally tired legs:)
Same shoe--which is a good thing. Mostly
Love the Motion--have been doing half marathons and training for years. This is basically the same shoe, meaning nice liftoff, unfortunately you need to buy a decent insole. Not sure why they can't put a better one in. Also, doesn't affect quality, but they put a bright blue topper on the neon orange/yellow sole and it just looks wrong. So hoping they fade on top fast, and the rest lasts well.
Best Shoes EVER!
I have been looking for a pair of shoes for years that give good arch support as well as a good cushion upon impact for the balls of my feet as I have pins in my big toes due to a previously sustained injury.
The lugs on these shoes take awhile to get use to but once you do they are truly amazing and provide the best cushion money can buy.

I am training for my 7th half marathon after having taken time off due to an illness. I thought it would be a good time to try these since I'm starting out with low mileage again. I am giddy over running in these shoes! They are perfect for me! I'm a natural forefoot runner but this is my first pair of Newtons. I recommend easing into them with special concentration on keeping your calves and Achilles stretched. I did go up a half size in them and they're just perfect.
Didn't like change to model
I've been running in Newton's for years. I loved the previous version of this shoe but I agree with another reviewer that the lugs are placed too close to the toes and it causes them to go numb with the change in design with this shoe.
Lugs feel too far forward vs older model
Love Newtons and have been running in them for years. New model of motion seem to have lugs placed more foward toward toes. Tried smaller size but still presented as a problem. Friend had same issue with new shoe. Will continue to run in Newtons but for now will change model.

I wear these to run several days a week as well as to Crossfit the other days of the week. They are great and a wonderful transition from the Newton Gravity that I had before....loving my Newtons.
I would buy this shoe again.
With the addition of custom inserts, my arch pain is completely gone. I am using this type of shoe in my second year of triathlon running.
I love this shoe
Best sneaker I've had. I gave it 4 stars because I don't know how well it will hold up, since they're new.
Ocean Grove, NJ
These are great- they took a while to get used to, but I really like them. They're also really cute!
These are my fourth pair and I love them. But need to by a half to full size larger.
Great shoes right out of the box
Ran a 7 miles pace run in these right out of the box. They feel very light and quick.
Great shoe, ran 10 miles the second time wearing them with absolutely no problems!
