Description

  • Video Description View the Video Description for this product! (Please note that the color shown in the video may no longer be available.)
  • Sometimes the only support you need to keep you going mile after mile is the reliability of a stable ride like the Newton® Motion.

    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 stability guidance runner designed for those 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.
  • Dual-density medial posting for enhanced mid-foot support.
  • 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.
  • Measurements:
    • Weight: 9 oz
  • Product measurements were taken using size 8.5, width B - Medium. Please note that measurements may vary by size.

These shoes helped me go from "hating to run" all of my life to loving it. My marathon runner friend (who runs like a gazelle) recommended them to me. I was skeptical because I run like an elephant. Not anymore! Running has helped me lose 50lbs. and keep it off since I lost it at the end of 2012. I tried the Gravities too and was unhappy with them because I overpronate and they wore out way too fast and I've had 2 pairs of Motions and they do not. Highly recommend. Again I am 190lbs. now, was 240lbs. and I have been running in Newton's the whole time. They just get better and better. This is the first time in my life I have ever spent this much on shoes and I was leery, but they are worth every penny!

I'd also recommend: none

Newtons are excellent for forefoot runners who like minimal shoes. These are NOT for heel-strikers or runners who want a lot of arch support or motion control or cushion--these are the epitome of MINIMALIST shoes...that being said, they are the best minimalist shoe I have tried (I've tried them all, and I always come back to Newtons--at least for the longer runs. Zoots are great for shorter distances, and they cost less). My only complaint with Newtons is that they wear too quickly, you only get 300-400 miles per pair. *As always with running shoes, buy a size larger than your street shoe size, to allow for swelling.

I'd also recommend: Zoot

I bought these for my daughter for her birthday. She requested them because she is an athlete and she loves these. They give her the support she needs while training for marathons and triathlons.

These are my first pair of newtons and I LOVE them! I do use powerstep insoles because I have had issues with plantar fasciitis in the past. I definitely had to get used to wearing and running in them for a week or 2. There is a pad on the ball of the foot that you need to get used to and balance on it. Been running with these for more than a month and I can say that they are my favorite running shoes. Running feels lighter and it seems to help correct my running form as well.

Love Newtons! They are the best shoe I have ever worn for running. The wide toe box allows for a roomy, comfy run. They encourage proper running technique and any pain that I feel when I run in other shoes is much less or non existent in these. The Motion model provides a little more stability than the other models. This shoe is not for everyone, but I recommend giving it a try. Definitely allow time to break them in.
