Customer Reviews

Comments: I was in the market for a new running shoe when I ran across this shoe by accident. I was running in Saucony & Nike prior to Newtons. I now have 2 full months on the shoes running around 20mi per week & completed my 1st 1/2 marathon in them yesterday. My legs feel great today. I am ordering a new pair today so I can take advantage of a discounted price on the 2012 model.

Comments: I was a bit skeptical at first, but once I got used to running in them it has been a very good relationship.  I do suggest a gradual break in phase if you are normally running in traditional running shoes but it is well worth it.  I have about 800 miles on mine and they still have life in them.  Good general purpose trainer.  Im sold!!!

Comments: I'm a cheap dude and I still spring for these shoes. Look for online coupons and other tricks to try to save some money. If you have good form, these shoes will reward you for it.  Otherwise, you will need to ease into them to avoid calf tears.  Also, the Gravity is an extremely durable shoe.  After a few hundred miles, the lugs have worn down, but they're still holding up nicely.

Comments: Best shoes I've ever run in. Teaches mid/forefoot strike. Smooth gate andstride. Great/fast marathon shoe. Very responsive. I give the gravity five stars...

Comments: These are my first pair of Newtons and so far I really like them.  They are light weight, low profile shoes that are flexible and very comfortable.  I did not size up as I have narrow feet and that was a good choice as they fit well.  My transition to them has been fairly easy as I've been running in the Brooks Pure Connect for the last year.  Good luck and I'll post an update regarding their durability soon.

Comments: Awesome pair of shoes. Have been wanting to strengthen my calves for the longest time and one of my friends recommended these. Very light .. was faster by almost a 1 min/mile. The forefoot positioning is great and it is good for practicing pose or chi running. Love it!!
