The shoes I wish I had my entire life


These are the most comfortable, natural feeling shoes I have ever worn. Even at my current overweight weight, I felt like I had barely walked around the block after going 11 miles. These shoes really diminish the load on your legs. I wear flip flops almost all the time so there was no break in for me. I've heard other people say that you need to work up to these shoes, but if you are a big flat shoe wearer in regular life, these will be a smooth transition and are extremely comfortable.

Very possibly the best Newton to date!


After running in Asics for more than 25 years I changed my running style several years ago, largely due to my discovery of the benefits of mid/forefoot strike and my first pair of Sir Isaacs. I've tried several models since then, ultimately settling on the Distance S. The biggest draw back for me from the beginning was the poor durability of the outsoles. I've only run in these a few times, but they appear to be much more durable. All in all, a great shoe so far.

Smooth ride on wider platform.


I train in the shoes everyday. They are very comfortable and have seemed to be durable. I have run in Sir Isaac's, Gravity, and Motion and the Fate seems to be the most comfortable. I have only run 50 miles in them so far but I really like them.

Super comfy


Super comfy fit. I wore these for a couple 4-6 mi runs and then broke them in for real with a 15 miler and I had no problem adapting right away. They are comfy enough I have been debating buying a second pair for every day use. I will probably skip that since I don't love the color schemes, but the blue with yellow swoosh is not nearly as "loud" as I expected. Overall great show.



Different, but, good!


I do 5 to 7 miles per day. I rotate the Newton's with 1 pair of Brooks & 3 pairs of Asics. The general feel of the Newton's is they are not as cushy as the others, however, at the end of the day my feet don't hurt. That is the bottom line. I wanted to try something different, I'm not a convert, but, you might be.

Favorite Newton of the Bunch


My favorite Newton of all the ones that I have tried. Love the 5 lugs. Very similar to the Gravity with a slightly higher heel toe drop and more heel cushioning. My new "go to" shoe.

New shoes rocks


Loved the fit right out of the box. Wide forefoot allows toes to spread. Comfortable feeling with the 5 lug design as if one is in a normal shoe.

Great shoes for running fast


I have been very satisfied with these shoes. I have high arches, and my custom orthotics fit well in the shoe. These shoes are great for speed work, races, and running on a treadmill.

Great shoe for a particular stride.


I have been running in Vibram's and minimus shoes for years and transitioned into newton fate for distance running. They feel great and keep me on the front of my foot when I run avoiding heel strikes

love this shoe


I run about 10 miles a week. These shoes hfelt good after only 3 runs. I've got word feet and they fit really well.

My favorite Newton shoe


Loved the shoe from the moment I put it on. The five lug feature improves stability.

Look forward to trying the Fate 2


Have used this shoe for faster workouts and runs up to 10 miles with no problems. Enjoy the feel of the shoe and plan to use it on longer runs.



Great Shoe! Thanks Newton


Great fit, excellent cushioning and responsiveness! Newton has done a great job making changes that enhance the comfort and function of their shoes. I've been wearing Newtons for almost 5 years and have yet to find any other shoes that work as well for my running gait. I wore these for a 10 mile run right out of the box!
