Description

  • Video Description View the Video Description for this product! (Please note that the color shown in the video may no longer be available.)
  • What's the call for today? Tempo or endurance run? Or maybe you'll take it easy and use the miles to explore a new route? No matter the variables, the one thing that won't change is the consistently reliable ride of the Newton® Gravity.

    Adaptation Period:
  • Adjusting to Newton running shoes will depend upon several factors including: your current running shoes, your running form, gait efficiency, as well as your speed and flexibility. Those new to natural running form, or those transitioning from a shoe with traditional cushioning will benefit from spending adequate time adjusting. This is because your body will need time to lengthen the muscles and tendons on the back of the leg and under the foot.
  • Newton recommends that first-timers walk in their shoes for several days to become accustomed to the level platform. Walking barefoot on safe and comfortable surfaces can also be helpful. Once ready, begin by introducing short runs of no longer than 15 minutes every other day. Gradually add 10-15 minutes as your feet and leg muscles begin to strengthen. If you experience soreness that persists for more than two days, reduce time in shoes immediately. Rest and ice the area until the soreness subsides, then slowly begin introducing time in shoes again.
  • A running shoe built for the neutral runner looking for a daily trainer that is versatile enough for fast tempo runs and races.
  • Highly breathable, fast-drying, open mesh upper offers a glove-like fit.
  • Minimal synthetic overlays are anatomically placed for light structural support.
  • Metatarsal stretch panels.
  • Plush tongue and collar for added comfort.
  • Fabric lining supplies a soft step-in feel.
  • ETC antifriction, antimicrobial sockliner promotes a great in-shoe environment.
  • Accommodates most orthotics.
  • Action/Reaction Technology: A highly responsive, trampoline-like and engaging midsole cushioning that protects and loses less energy with each step.
  • High-rebound EVA.
  • Biomechanical Sensor Plate allows the foot to sense the ground promoting a lighter, more efficient stride.
  • Heel/Forefoot Differential: 3mm.
  • Met-flex for enhanced forefoot flexibility.
  • High-density rubber outsole.
  • Carbon rubber heel for extended durability in this high-wear area.
  • Imported.

Here are a bunch of things I think about these shoes: They're light, perhaps even lighter than the Brooks PureCadence. The uppers are ultra thin beyond the materials that shape the toe box. I assume this helps a great deal with breathability and staying dry. I noticed that the black material which outlines where your toes are is higher than most other shoes and what this meant for me is that nothing seems to touch my toes, even on a descent. If you've seen my beautiful black toes, you know I'm quite chuffed about this no-touching feature. The reflective tongue is thin and sits high in the shoe. This means it never binds up or slips down. It also doesn't interfere with (touch) your ankle. They are extremely well made. Every stitch, every glued piece is absolutely perfect. The attention to detail is noticeable. The lace tips are double wrapped and stamped. Who does that? They're also made of this space-age, no-slip material. I double tie mine anyway just because I'm OCD like that. I like red, and this shade of red screams. Here I am. Get out of my way. Let me pass. If you're going to spend money on running shoes, they may as well be loud - and these are about as loud as it gets. Not sure the orange underside matches, but it's growing on me. The Gravity is awkward to just stand around in at first. They're relatively flat (3mm drop), and the unique Newton lugs on the bottom sort of lean you backwards when you're not moving. I'll definitely not be wearing them out to the mall because of this. I wonder how many people try them on, and are turned off while just standing around in the store? Moving, however, is where this shoe starts to really shine. I already had a solid forefoot strike coming into this shoe, and it is the first shoe that I've worn that seems to reward good form and make it noticeable. Striking on the lugs is supremely comfortable (okay, maybe just a little strange feeling for the first mile or so, but I settled in quickly) and you can absolutely tell when you don't strike where you should. As an example, on a small descent, I left off the gas (because of the previous hill we just assaulted) to catch my breath, lengthened my stride and things got weird quickly. The back of the Gravity has a heel, but it's spongy and odd shaped - you definitely don't feel fleet-footed if you're heel striking in this shoe. There is no break-in period apparently. I ran a hard eight at dawn the morning I got them and never looked back. No pain. No rubs. I felt really good during and after the run. I left my custom insoles out from the first run on. Insoles are a waste of money. The base of the shoe is soft - except the lugs, which seem to be considerably more durable. I think I would try these on the trail. Not ugly, muddy, rocky, technical trails, but anything reasonable, the Gravity seems up to the task. The toe box is wide, but maybe not as wide as my previous Brooks, but wider than my trail Salomons. On the sides, however, the amount of give is really good, and I didn't feel pinched, pushed or crammed at any point during the run. At some point in my career, my right outer sesamoid decided to flare up in pain from time to time, so I worry about pressure in this area. The Gravity isn't doing this so far, so my crab-assed big toe is fine for now. The faster you go, the faster these shoes feel. We did a tempo run this morning and finished strong. In fact, it was an out and out sprint for the last 1600 or so and I'm not sure how to describe it, but the lugs were just pushing me along. The faster I ran, the faster I felt like I could go. I have no scientific backing, but perhaps these shoes encourage me to lean further forward than I normally would. In the end, I never win this sprint. I like to blame it on the fact that I have the shortest legs of the crew. I'm not sure, but at least everyone else buys it. It's about 300 miles now on the Brooks, and they show it. Newton shoes are not cheap, but in reality, neither were the Brooks, we're only talking relative costs. So, doing the math in my head: For the extra money, I'm getting 3 times wear out of a shoe. Seems worth it to me. But I still do wish they were more affordable.

This design provides push off and reduced impact on heel. Furthermore, eliminates most or all pronation. I really like these shoes, but this style shoe must be gradually molded into your feet or otherwise could cause some pain and discomfort. One of best running shoes I bought.

I'd also recommend: Ecco

Shoes certainly not bad. but notice how many positive reviews in comparison with other brands. Advertising Department Newton works well :) prices are still very high. the real price of them that are on sale. do not trust only good reviews. Them write sellers. :)

I'd also recommend: Adidas, ASICS, Brooks, La Sportiva, Mizuno, Nike, Pearl Izumi, Reebok, Salomon, Saucony, Zoot,

I love my Newtons. There isn't another shoe I would run in. Between the Gravity and the Distance I've got two great shoes.

I just upgraded from the Newton Energy's and have no complaints. I also have a pair of Newton Distance Elite (which I use primarily for speed and races), and I prefer the Gravity more for every day use. First of all - if you've never worn Newtons, start with the Energy first as the lugs take time to get used to. The Gravity have bigger lugs but a nice solid heel, making them ideal for training or trail running. These are well-constructed shoes that will last for a long time (double most other brand running shoes).

I'd also recommend: Vibram
