INTRODUCTION

CUSHIONING

  • Action/Reaction Technology is utilized in the heel and forefoot. These external lugs compress to absorb shock energy, and then release energy during toe-off.
MIDSOLE
  • Action/Reaction Technology is utilized in the heel and forefoot. These external lugs compress to absorb shock energy, and then release energy during toe-off.
  • EVA midsole offers durable underfoot cushioning.
  • Met-flex grooves in the forefoot allow the foot to flex naturally.
UPPER
  • Open Mesh throughout the upper is a breathable, quick-drying material.
  • Overlays are anatomically placed to provide a secure fit.
  • Metatarsal Stretch Panels in the forefoot stretch to reduce irritation.
  • Slip-Proof Laces stay in place with heel-securing double eyelets.
  • ETC Sockliner is anti-bacterial for underfoot comfort and a healthy foot environment.
  • Strobel Last with the upper stitched to full length fabric for a comfortable underfoot feel.
OUTSOLE
  • Carbon Rubber Heel is engineered for high mileage durability.
  • High Density Rubber in the forefoot provides a long lasting outsole.

Comments: I am also a under-pronator and new to Newtons.  I've heard you either love them or hate them.  Honestly, I thought I would hate the lugs and not like Newtons.  However, I was pleasantly surprised.  I took them on a two mile test run and LOVE LOVE them. 

I currently am a mid foot striker so I'm hoping the gradual break in period will be shorter than some.  I felt like my legs were working more but somehow felt like they had more energy and didn't get tired.  AMAZING!  I can't wait to go on another run in them. 

I thought the shoe fitter was great and found them to run on the wider side - which made my toes extremely happy in the forefoot!  I also wear an orthotic for my arch and they fit in perfectly.

Comments: This is my second pair of newton gravity. The first pair i had was the 2012, which i absolutely loved and helped a lot in transitioning to a mid to forefoot landing. The 2013 just does the same in terms of helping you with the avoiding injuries due to heel landing. i love the color, as well. There is, however, a big question with regards to something annoying around the toe box or that area proximal to your big toe. There seems to be something annoying that even losening the shoelace does not really help. Apparently my other running friend had the same issue and had to return to newton.
