Men's NEWTON® DISTANCE ELITE :: Go the distance in maximum comfort and lightweight freedom when you run in the Men's Newton® Distance Elite. You'll get a close connection to the ground in this low profile running shoe that features a minimalist design and a supportive midfoot to keep you running strong and super light on your feet. Plus, you're going to be breathing easy mile after mile thanks to the ventilated upper, and you'll be digging the durability of the Newton® Elite with its Distance bottom and reinforced toe.
Awesome shoe. Takes a few runs to get used to the Newton design, but these shoes are built to last, and for distance runs. I have been a barefoot runner for awhile, completing runs up to 10 miles in Merrill road gloves, and trail gloves. As I start building up more mileage, I needed a forefoot strike neutral running shoe with minimal heel to toe drop. The newtons are awesome for this. Also picked up a pair of Mizuno wave ferus EVOs for shorter runs. Highly recommend this shoe.

Excellent addition to the Newton line: All the good features of the Distance in a lighter package. I read some comments on the web that the Elite was too wide in the forefoot; but I have a long narrow foot and it fits very well.
I just ran 15 miles in my pair of Elites today and my legs feel great!

Lightweight and Aggressive
I won a pair of the Ironman edition elites on Newton's Facebook page. It took a few short runs for my body to acclimate to Newton's action/reaction lugs. Now I rely on them to maximize my tempo and interval runs. Their great fit and feel are a definite confident booster. My Roadrunner inserts fit great into these as well!
The sole of the Distance with a better fitting, lower cut. I see this becoming my all around road shoe.
Fore foot and neutral with padding
If you like forefoot running in a low rise shoe, this works great.
