Description

  • Video Description View the Video Description for this product! (Please note that the color shown in the video may no longer be available.)
  • From daily training runs to race pace, the responsive nature of the Newton® Gravity III has what it takes to go the distance.

    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 neutral trainer that is suitable for daily runs, as well as races ranging from one block to 100 miles.
  • Lightweight, breathable mesh and synthetic uppers.
  • Anatomical metatarsal stretch panels.
  • Heel lace lock.
  • Plush tongue and collar for added comfort.
  • Breathable fabric lining supplies a soft step-in feel.
  • 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.
  • Enhanced medial midsole platform.
  • Heel/ Forefoot Differential: 3 mm
  • s.h.a.r.c outsole.
  • Imported.
  • Measurements:
    • Weight: 6 oz
  • Product measurements were taken using size 5, width B - Medium. Please note that measurements may vary by size.

I love these shoes. I have used the Gravity when it had the 4 lugs, but really like the feel of 5 lugs. I broke my foot a year ago and with these shoes I am able to work out pain free.

I was first introduced to Newton running shoes at a race expo. I've been running in them ever since. They provide a balanced feel. Their midsole platform support and spring-like response feels natural and comfortable.

My first Newtons and Wow! Inspired to splurge by a Zappos certificate, I am so glad I did! Newtons are a new level of running experience. Super light, but with a bit of "spring" from the pads they are the first shoe to effectively compete with my Nike Frees. Normally a 9 -1/2 in Nike, 9 in dress shoes, I ordered 8-1/2 in Newtons (based on other reviews) and they fit perfectly. Thanks Zappos!

I absolutely love these shoes. I was horrified at spending almost this much on running shoes, but I was fitted for these at a running store and they were highly recommended to me. I run about 20-25 miles a week and have high arches with wide feet and a neutral gait. These have a nice wide toe box so my wide bunion-ridden feet are happy in them! I feel like I'm flying when I run in these, they are so lightweight. I've already set a 5k PR in them, and that alone is worth the money. Now, for the "adaptation period" thing. It's not just a cute little suggestion. I'm sure I'm not the only person to do this, but I got my new shoes, got excited, and went out and did a tough 3 mile interval workout. My calves hurt so bad the next day I was cursing the shoes and I thought I had torn a calf muscle. (I hadn't). You need to break these in. I emailed a Newton rep for advice and she was super helpful and gave me exercises to do, etc. The main thing with Newtons is to just run like you normally would, don't try to land in a special way on the lugs or you'll be running on your toes, which leads to intense calf pain. Trust me. It took me about 2-3 weeks to break in my Newtons. What I would do is run 1-2 miles slowly, then come home, swap to my old shoes, and finish my run. It was annoying, but worth the effort. Now I can do a 5 mile run in the Newtons with no pain or problems, and I've had them for 3 weeks. I wear a size 10 shoe, size 10.5 in running shoes. I got these in a 10.5 and they fit great.

After trying out many different high end running shoes these won. I normally wear Brooks Glycerin but wanted more of a performance race type shoe for my triathlons. They are very lightweight, breathable and feel incredible. The minimalist drop on these is very comfortable and easy to get used to. The "lugs" feel funny for maybe one run then you don't notice that part of the shoes design. I tried "hokas" for their comfort, durability and for their design but they were just too wide. Very good for long distances but these Newtons are doing just fine for my longer training runs. I will be wearing these for at least the next 250-300 miles and will be buying another pair. I normally wear a 7 up and down with any brand but ordered a 6.5 and they fit awesome.
