I loved the Newtons from a couple of years ago, but they to be making them narrower now. My toes turned numb after wearing them for just a few minutes around the house. In the past the Newton had a wide enough toe box to accommodate my wide feet. There was so much I loved about Newton, but none of the current ones work for me.

I have purchased newtons for five years. I have always been an over pronater. These are the best fit and support out of all of their shoes I have tried. I run between 4-8 miles 5 days a week.

I have been wearing Brooks for years, but none of this year's models worked for my feet. I knew nothing about this shoe, but decided to give them a try. The forefoot cushioning is amazing. There isn't much of a footbed, but once I put my orthotic in it, it was an improvement. Very lightweight. Looking forward to see how they work overtime. Change is good!

I adore these shoes just as much as I loved the Lady Isaacs. These are my fourth pair of Newtons and I use them for light/easy/recovery days. They are very pillowy; for longer runs (over 30-45 minutes). I use my Gravity pair which provide a bit more structure. The addition of the fifth lug was a super idea. I tend to struggle with shin and knee pain and have had no issues with any neutral Newton model so far. A rep at a running expo talked me into a size 6 for my current pair of Gravitys, but my usual size (6.5) is what I ordered in the Aha and I like it much better.

Perfect shoe!! I overpronate a little bit, and these shoes are amazing. It truly feels like you are running on a cloud - the most comfortable running shoe I have tried yet!

Update review: I discovered that I can run/jog in these shoes & they are fabulous....lightweight & fast! However, for some reason, I cannot use them for walks as initially I did & they caused some muscle strain.

Great running shoe. Be prepared for it to be different by design, and it will throw you forward when you are just standing but you will understand the difference when you run. I started with the NRII and did 300 miles or so in them and they were great. I am 100 miles or so into my Fate's and they are like new. There is literally no wear on them at all. I am shocked at how comfortable and durable they are. Highly recommend.

I am a heavier set guy and needed a sturdy running shoe. These have been a dream. Haven't experienced shin splints since wearing. They have also worked out as a decent shoe for some Crossfit workouts. Feels comfortable at all times. The built up sole in the front does take some getting used to, it's so different from so many standard running shoes.

These are cute shoes. I wanted to love them, and was especially intrigued by the "lugs" Newton has based their shoes around. As someone suffering from tarsal/metatarsal problems they sounded interesting. However, these shoes were far too narrow in the toe box for me. I have a semi-wide foot and expected these to be wider based on research/reviews. I loved the lightweight upper but just wouldn't have been able to make these work so I ended up returning them.

Good shoe. Light and comfortable. Nice room in toebox. As with all lower heel drop shoes, must gradually increase mileage. These shoes want to go fast and show their stuff with a quicker midfoot strike. Very limited arch support as it is a neutral shoe.

Bought these shoes for my father who runs 7-8 miles a day. He loves them - they are lightweight, nice fabric, and enough support. They also look modern.

I have run in Newtons for 2 years and these shoes absolutely provide the most cushioning as the description implies. If you haven't run in Minimalist shoes, these are a good introduction and first step.

I love these shoes! They are so comfortable and stylish. I had the purple pair and wore them out. I wear them because they were recommended for my knees, and I think they help. At first, they feel a little different from other athletic shoes when you walk, but once I got used to that I loved them! I got the blue this time, and I've gotten compliments on both colors and both match well with the general colors of exercise outfits that I wear.

Very light in weight. Does not seem too strong in material. Afraid after light use, we fall apart. Support is so-so. Maybe next time. Sending back.

So far, so good. Went through the suggested breaking in period. I strongly advise everyone to do this or your calves and ankles will hurt really bad. Not as much cushion as I hoped but does feel very light. Not much arch support for overpronators such as myself. That was a bit of a disappointment since these were recommended for overpronators. I bought half size up. Fits perfectly

Great shoe - lightweight but plenty of support. I am not a big runner, but these are the perfect shoe for 3-5 miles.

Great pair of shoes so far. They take some getting use to, thus far no complaints. They run small so ensure you get this right size.

These are very lightweight, comfortable shoes. They have a roomy toe box and good arch support. There is only one negative -- they smell really bad. I don't know whether the unpleasant smell is from the fabric, or adhesive, or something else. They smelled bad right out of the box. Unfortunately I wore them a couple of times so I could not return them.

These hurt instantly when I put them on. They put pressure directly on the spot where my neuroma is. Had to return them. Otherwise they were lightweight and fun looking, so if you don't have any feet problems, they are probably okay.

Lets start that I am a beginner runner and needed something to help me fix my heel strike. I was hurting my knees, and needed to do something. I did research and this brand is what I came up with. in the beginning my legs ached a bit different but for some odd reason I ran 20 seconds faster per mile. I am convinced this is the shoe I will stick with. Another thing that I noticed, 1/2 of the winners in all categories of a 10 mile race I ran had Newtons. That should tell you something. Go easy at first with the shoes and work your way up. At first its a bit odd but in the end well worth it. Ive got 70 miles on these shoes already.

I do a HIIT (High Intensity Interval Training) class and this past summer our instructor amped up the running since it was nice outside. It was nothing for us to run 3 - 4 miles at a time. I started getting killer shin splints. I went to a local store were they special in running shoes. I had my running gate analyzed. I was wearing Asics (Gel Kayano 20) and the store owner put me in a Newton Running Energy NR II! Since I was a heel striker the differential (6mm) on the Newton shoe worked way better for me than my Asics which was around a 12mm. I still had to take it easy on my shins for several more weeks until they healed completely. Since then, I've been running with the Newton's pain free for months now! They seem to be holding up very well and is super comfortable to run in. I also wear them to do my other cross fit training exercises. I don't want to bring several pairs of shoes to class so I leave them on while doing ski abs, burpees, mountain climbers, etc. The only thing that I wish this shoe had was a little more ankle support for my side to side moves we do. Then they would be perfect for all my needs! I highly recommend these shoes even though I wasn't crazy for the color!
