Customer Reviews

Comments: These shoes are great! I got these shoes after the advice from my PT to change my running form. After years of poor form and heel slamming my knee started giving me problems. I since recovered from the injury and am now running in Newtons. I no longer have any knee pain and these shoes help me with my stride. Yes they have lugs on the bottom and when you first try them on you will notice. But after just one run in them, I no longer felt the lugs. The shoe is comfortable and it has a wide toe box. I also love the colors and receive lots of compliments when I wear them.
