Comments: This is the fourth different revision of Newton's Distance that I've worn. I keep buying Newton shoes because, despite the cost, they are a great match for me (my top priority: find a shoe that lets me run as fast and far as I want, as often as I want, and not get hurt!). I was excited to try the 5th lug, but I can't say that I notice much of a difference. Maybe a little more stability? Although that might just be psychological. My favorite thing about the shoe, honestly, is the color combo. The orange is way cooler than the old shocking yellow/green that the Distances used to sport! I have always ordered these a 1/2 size up from my normal shoe size and they fit perfectly.

Comments: Converted Newtonian! Shoes are awesome! I have two pairs now, the Distance III and Gravity III. They are comfortable, light, and can go the distance. For my run days, I average around 17-20mi a week and these are my new go to shoe. That being said, everyone's foot is different so this shoe might not be for your. You have to have already developed a mid/fore-foot running technique for these shoes to work. There is a break in period of about 15-20mi I would say. But after that, they are golden. The toe box is wide and the upper mesh is soft and made really well. I replaced the laces with Lock-Laces to help during transitions and for a snugger fit; helps when your feet swell too. For reference, I've used Pegasus, Frees, Brooks Pure Connects other various Nike shoes. I don't even want to run in those anymore. Also buy a half size up.
