The Newton Energy NR II is a natural, daily running, support shoe designed for a mild overpronated foot motion, ideal for runners looking to transition to a forefoot strike.


Important Shipping Note: U.S. sales only.


The Newton Energy NR II added an extended medial bridge (emb) bumping the shoe from minimum neutral to minimum support. The lug platform is designated Point of Power 3 (POP 3) on the Newton scale meaning the lugs are less pronounced than other models. This shoe is a perfect for a first-time Newton user or as a supplement for Newton's veterans on their easy days.

Customer Reviews

Comments: Great shoe and exactly as described. Excellent shoe to put in rotation with others. Good support and cushioning. Gives a break to the knees. The shoe is well made, and very soft and breathable. Sizing is larger then usual Newton sizing. I took my usual size 6.5, but have more room for my toes then my Distance, which is a good thing. No black toe nails with this one! Very happy with my purchase, and they look good as well!
