Once I got the hang of the forefoot lugs push of the Newton Shoes, it became my Go-To-Shoes for my big races. It brings out the natural mid-foot landing and adds that extra push on the next stride resulting to faster cadence and better runs. It gets even better this year with a redesigned forefoot for the Distance IV and IV S with even more exciting color ways and the introduction of new models in the Kismet and the Fate. This is definitely great news for Newton fans like me. Say Hello to Better Running Days as the 2015 Newton Collection has now landed in #RunnrPH so grab one NOW!

The Newton Running Experience
A few months ago, I did my Newton Experiment on whether the lightweight technology of Newton can help me surpass my second marathon. It’s not common to wear lightweight shoes on a marathon as the number of strides can really give your feet a lot of beating but on the other hand if you run and land properly, there is reduced wear and tear. It did help me conquer my second marathon, breaking my marathon personal record by more than 2o minutes. Since then, I’ve been sold on the Newton Running Technology and it has been my Go-To-Shoes for the big races. It’s a fast shoes that helps you cover more distance faster but even when you get tired, the push is all you need to remember that you need to keep moving forward towards the finish line. Ever since Newton Running was first introduced by RUNNR in 2009, more and more competitive athletes have embraced the natural running style that the innovative shoe brand espouses. From its headquarters in Boulder, Colorado, Newton Running has churned out seriously fast shoes year after year and racked up impressive wins at both short and long course races.
In 2014, Newton Running introduced the P.O.P. (Point Of Power) system to its patented Action/ReactionTM technology. Adding a fifth lug to its forefoot lug system, the P.O.P. system provides a custom action/reaction to each specific shoe model, tailoring its responsiveness to the wearer’s needs. Having introduced the revolutionary 5-lug POP1+ platform in 2014 for the Distance, Stability, and MV3 models, Newton now introduces the 2015 Distance IV and Distance IV S with a new forefoot design and new and exciting color ways to really make the wearer stand out in a crowd. The 5th lug really adds stability to your landings and eliminates unnecessary movements in the foot. All 2015 Newton Running models also feature highly breathable mesh uppers with seamless construction for a more glove-like fit, reducing the risk of chafing for those who like to run sock-less.
Newton Distance IV – IV S – SRP P7,995
The Distance IV speed trainer features the 5-lug P.O.P. 1+ platform open chamber Action/ReactionTM technology with isolated and more rigid lugs for greater responsiveness, making it ideal for long distance training and high intensity workouts and races. The forefoot Flex Zone has been redesigned to offer a custom fit and greater forefoot splay. Runners who have evolved their gait to a more midfoot and forefoot focus will likely feel they have hit the sweet spot in the new Distance IV and Distance IV S. The latter includes an Extended Medial Bridge to the midsole to provide more functional support for runners who need a greater surface area on the medial side due to pronation or a flatter archs.
Newton Fate and Kismet – SRP: P6,995
Fate is a “core trainer” with a 5-lug P.O.P. 2 platform, featuring beveled and articulated lugs for a more relaxed ride, and surrounded by static lugs for a broader base. This creates a versatile and balanced ride, offering the dynamic Newton “pop” in a more relaxed package ideal for everyday training and racing in an all-around, go-to shoe. It features a mesh upper with 36-degree reflectivity, heel lace lock, and a durable outsole composite in the forefoot.
The Newton Fate has a 4.5mm drop and a 4mm wider base than the Kismet. Kismet offers similar features as the Fate but adds an Extended Medial Bridge for additional stability. The Kismet is perfect for people who delight in the pure joy of running and want a shoe that elevates their experience. It’s an every day training and racing and all around go-to-shoes. It offers a versatile, balanced and relaxing run.
