Good shoe. Light and comfortable. Nice room in toebox. As with all lower heel drop shoes, must gradually increase mileage. These shoes want to go fast and show their stuff with a quicker midfoot strike. Very limited arch support as it is a neutral shoe.

I adored these shoes so much that now it's time for me to purchase another pair of running shoes, I am returning to this same brand/style. I adore their moderate arch, it doesn't cause my flat feet any trouble and the width is perfect. They are true to size and just a fantastic all-around shoe.

Love the shoe. Buying the same shoe as we speak. The only issue is with the lugs - they did detach after about 400 miles - nothing that crazy glue can't fix though. Most comfortable shoe you will ever own.

Bought these shoes for my father who runs 7-8 miles a day. He loves them - they are lightweight, nice fabric, and enough support. They also look modern.

My 5th pair... Excellent trainer and race day shoe. Lugs are not the difficult to get comfortable in as other may suggest. I've run several marathons/ultras in this shoe and even a sub 3:00 in these shoes. Bottom line, durable, light and responsive.

I have run in Newtons for 2 years and these shoes absolutely provide the most cushioning as the description implies. If you haven't run in Minimalist shoes, these are a good introduction and first step.

I am a Newton fan, and my current pair needs to be replaced, but this model isn't the one! The material is very forgiving ("metatarsal stretch panels"), which will likely cause me problems with all the lateral movement I do in my HIIT workouts. The shoe tongue ("plush"), has no structure, so you pull it and then have to spend time tucking it in! I do like the 5 raised lugs on the foot rather than the 4 on my old pair. This provides more lateral stability for the shoe base, but the material is so soft and stretchy, my foot moves too much left and right. This might be a great shoe for someone who is only running. It's very lightweight - lighter than my current pair and lighter than mentioned here. These were 7.5 M and 1 shoe weighed 5.63oz and with orthotics weighed 6.5 oz.

I love these shoes! They are so comfortable and stylish. I had the purple pair and wore them out. I wear them because they were recommended for my knees, and I think they help. At first, they feel a little different from other athletic shoes when you walk, but once I got used to that I loved them! I got the blue this time, and I've gotten compliments on both colors and both match well with the general colors of exercise outfits that I wear.

Very light in weight. Does not seem too strong in material. Afraid after light use, we fall apart. Support is so-so. Maybe next time. Sending back.

So far, so good. Went through the suggested breaking in period. I strongly advise everyone to do this or your calves and ankles will hurt really bad. Not as much cushion as I hoped but does feel very light. Not much arch support for overpronators such as myself. That was a bit of a disappointment since these were recommended for overpronators. I bought half size up. Fits perfectly

Do not love this shoe. The tongue on the right foot slides right, even when laced properly. I contacted Newton, their solution did not fix this issue.

I love these shoes. I have used the Gravity when it had the 4 lugs, but really like the feel of 5 lugs. I broke my foot a year ago and with these shoes I am able to work out pain free.

Great shoe - lightweight but plenty of support. I am not a big runner, but these are the perfect shoe for 3-5 miles.

Great pair of shoes so far. They take some getting use to, thus far no complaints. They run small so ensure you get this right size.

These are very lightweight, comfortable shoes. They have a roomy toe box and good arch support. There is only one negative -- they smell really bad. I don't know whether the unpleasant smell is from the fabric, or adhesive, or something else. They smelled bad right out of the box. Unfortunately I wore them a couple of times so I could not return them.

These hurt instantly when I put them on. They put pressure directly on the spot where my neuroma is. Had to return them. Otherwise they were lightweight and fun looking, so if you don't have any feet problems, they are probably okay.

Lets start that I am a beginner runner and needed something to help me fix my heel strike. I was hurting my knees, and needed to do something. I did research and this brand is what I came up with. in the beginning my legs ached a bit different but for some odd reason I ran 20 seconds faster per mile. I am convinced this is the shoe I will stick with. Another thing that I noticed, 1/2 of the winners in all categories of a 10 mile race I ran had Newtons. That should tell you something. Go easy at first with the shoes and work your way up. At first its a bit odd but in the end well worth it. Ive got 70 miles on these shoes already.

I absolutely love these shoes. This was the first pair of Newtons that I ever bought, and I am certain that they will not be the last. The Distance III is very light weight, and like other reviews have mentioned, really propel you forward and I have noticed my runs getting faster and faster. Running just feels better with these. There is an adjustment period - my calfs were sore after the first few times I wore them, but now I do not notice it at all. They have definitely helped improve my running form, and I highly recommend them!

I have the previous Distance with other four lugs and loved it but this five lugs feels even better! The shoe is so light and feel like I can go faster and run forever on it. Feels like I'm ready to just spring forward with every step! I get tons of compliments on the bright yellow and it makes my feet happy! I am definitely a Newton fan! These shoes have really improved my running form and I've gotten faster since using these. Caution to wear them in slowly as they say. I had some shin and calf soreness at first but followed the breaking in directions and now they feel awesome!

I love Newtons and this is my third pair! They are so light weight and they last much longer than my other running shoes. Zappos has a great selection and you can't beat the free shipping and returns! If you are new to Newtons, expect your calves to be a little sore at first- it's only because the shoes are showing your foot how to properly roll when wearing them.

I do a HIIT (High Intensity Interval Training) class and this past summer our instructor amped up the running since it was nice outside. It was nothing for us to run 3 - 4 miles at a time. I started getting killer shin splints. I went to a local store were they special in running shoes. I had my running gate analyzed. I was wearing Asics (Gel Kayano 20) and the store owner put me in a Newton Running Energy NR II! Since I was a heel striker the differential (6mm) on the Newton shoe worked way better for me than my Asics which was around a 12mm. I still had to take it easy on my shins for several more weeks until they healed completely. Since then, I've been running with the Newton's pain free for months now! They seem to be holding up very well and is super comfortable to run in. I also wear them to do my other cross fit training exercises. I don't want to bring several pairs of shoes to class so I leave them on while doing ski abs, burpees, mountain climbers, etc. The only thing that I wish this shoe had was a little more ankle support for my side to side moves we do. Then they would be perfect for all my needs! I highly recommend these shoes even though I wasn't crazy for the color!
