Comments about Womens Newton Running Energy NR Running Shoe:
This was my first time trying a Newton Running shoe, and overall I've been really enjoying them. My previous two pairs of running shoes were both Nike Frees. I found the Newton Energy NR to have a similar low profile to the Nike Free, but the Newtons are slightly more durable and I expect I will get more mileage out of them. The lugs felt a big awkward at first, but running in them feels much more natural than walking. My first run I did feel a bit of a burning under the ball of my foot, but every run since then has been comfortable. I use these shoes for my daily runs (15-20 miles total a week) and 5k, 10k, and half-marathon races. I went up a half size in this shoe, as recommended.
If you wear neutral running shoes and like the Nike Free's, then I would definitely recommend giving these a try as a more durable alternative.
