Great running shoes! Form fitting, light, and supportive. Very comfortable too!

The shoe fits okay for the most part. But tapers fast in the toe box. Compared to the other Newtons I own/have tried. This is unacceptable. My other problem with this shoe, the lugs are rigid (I know they are made this way) and do not have that "Pop" that is what Newton is known for.

I LOVE these shoes. I had almost given up on running due to metatarsal pain and even long walks were starting to hurt in regular sneakers. These are wonderful. They feel very, very strange at first due to the negative rise, but my feet immediately noticed a difference. You probably should take it easy the first few weeks as they have less support at the heel than any other running shoe I've used (feels more minimalist at the heel). Anyway, I cannot say these enough good things if you have metatarsal or joint pain - it really helped me. My only complaint is that the lugs (under the metatarsals) are starting to show some noticeable wear after only about 1 1/2 months of walking and mild running. And they are pretty expensive, so I hope they last a little longer than that.

The Newton Boco Sol is my first pair of Newtons, and so far so good. The transition had been easy and the shoes have performed great on some very technical terrain. They felt a little narrow in the toe box at first, but I haven't noticed that lately. I have about 80 miles on them and think I may have found my new trail shoe. The mesh upper on the Sol does let in a fair amount of dirt, but nothing large enough to bother during the run.

I loved Newton shoes. This is the third pair of Gravitys that I have owned so I am definitely a fan. And Zappos has the best price, plus free shipping. I would have given them five stars except the fabric on the right shoe has developed a small hole, which has never happened on any of the other shoes I have owned. I have only had them about a month so think there is a definite flaw in the fabric. Otherwise I love them and love Zappos!

My first Newton shoes and I truly enjoy them. Use these shoes several times a week for running and walking and find them extremely comfortable. No break-in time! Another bonus is the mesh fabric that makes them great for FL weather.

Love Newtons! Nothing like the ride you get from their design. Good for light trails but would not use for more rugged terrain.

They look snazzy and feel good. Buyer be warned that this is not your regular running shoe and will stretch your calf muscles differently from your other running shoes. My only complaint is that I do hybrid road/trail runs, and they don't work as well on the trails as I had hoped.

After trying many brands, Newton running is where I landed. I ordered this model, the kismet, and the distance s iii. This will be my main trainer and used for longer races. My only concern was the heel is somewhat wide (in all models I now own), but It does not affect my running at all. Looking forward to many miles in my new shoes!

This will be my speed work and race shoe for the shorter triathlons and road races I hope Newton makes this shoe in burnt orange or similar crazy color next year! My only concern was the heel is somewhat wide (in all models I now own), but It does not affect my running at all. Looking forward to many miles in my new shoes!

Zappos has the BEST customer service ever. Newton shoes are so amazing that I don't like to wear any other brand of running shoes. They are extremely durable, light weight, and comfortable. They make running fun to me.

This is my second pair of Newtons and I will always buy this brand. They are worth the extra price, with no shin splints and a buoyancy due to the proper placement of the foot.

I bought these running shoes about a month ago and the support on the shoe laces is terrible. It completely broke and I was forced to return them. It is sad when in reality these shoes were working perfectly for me. I haven't even used them that much. My dad has his pair and loved them so much he told me to buy these but I won't buy any again, it's simply poor quality materials.

I previously ran in the 4 lug Distance U. The new model has an added lug, and a noticeable spongy heel. I find the new model to be more durable and comfortable with the same lightweight feel. I only run in Newtons. I think the technology of other brands has a significant amount of catching up to do.

I absolutely love these shoes. I have a wide foot with bunions and two hammer toes and these shoes are total comfort with my feet problems. The toe box is the best I have ever experienced. I was wearing the Torin by Altra because they had a wide toe box, but these surpass the Torin. I was a previous runner, but hurt my knee. Now I am a walker. Shoes are light weight, great support, great color and when I walk I feel like I have a spring in my step.

Love these shoes! It definitely took a few weeks to break them in, and I suggest following the Newton recommendation of slowly increasing the time spent running in these shoes. Now I can't imagine going back to my old pair!

If your just standing with these on for the first time it feels like something is stuck to the bottom of your shoe, but as soon as you take off running its like running on a cloud. Seriously! The support and cushion this unique shoe gives your foot is amazing. I had the opportunity to "Test" these on my first 5K last week and the support on the bottom of the shoe literally molds to how your foot lands giving you perfect comfort while running. My feet felt awesome after the run. I havent run more than a mile in 8 years and the week prior to the 5K I ran two miles twice, then went right into the 5K. So my muscles had not yet lengthened and strengthened up. Great shoe! Cannot wait to buy a pair for myself. Ironically, my husband needed a new pair and bought a pair of New Balances the day of the race. A few days later he took them back because they were so uncomfortable. He tried on about 20 different pairs of shoes (no lie, 20!) until he tried a pair of Newtons. He walked out with the Newtons and loves them! I can say I am very envious he got a pair before I did! hope this helps =) I chose moderate arch support for the review because I have a medium arch, and it supports wonderfully. I have had some where it makes my foot arch too much, hence the "Moderate" review I gave.

I absolutely love these shoes!!! Although I think the colors are hideous (I do not really like neon) and I was skeptical, I tried them and so glad I did. I was a loyal Brooks shoe buyer, but when I tried the Newton Gravity shoe, my time improved with my first run! They train you to run properly, so I guess they say there is some "getting used to" at first but not I. I love them and probably won't go back. I am not some Olympian runner-maybe 10-15 miles a week. I can't see how any serious runner is not wearing these shoes. Get 'em! You will not be disappointed.

Order up 1/2 size for fit. Need to use custom insert for adequate arch support. Good news Newton shoes completely address my metatarsal issues! I've tried both "Gravity" and "Distance" and I like the "Motion" the best. There's more room in the toe box compared to others at the same size.

I bought these to run my first 10K, the Crescent City Classic in the spring. I don't know much about running shoe brands but read the reviews. I ran a few short jogs in this before the race and I they did not hurt when I ran the Classic. Overall, I'm very satisfied and will buy again when I need another pair!
