A real speedwork/racing type shoe that can - at a push - cope with everyday requirements. We say it's the kind of shoe you like to have in your armoury for special occasions. That low heel to toe drop can be tricky for some to get used to, so keep that in mind.
There's no arguing Gravity does what every other Newton shoe does - get you up on your toes and driving forward thanks to the highly responsive POP1 platform with an innovative new bottom for enhanced flexibility and full foot cushioning - basically it pushes you up onto your toes. Runners being runners, we all enjoy cushioning and Newton has worked hard on that offering high-rebound EVA to make sure there's plenty of shock absorption. It's a fascinating shoe to run in and we've been lucky enough to be in right at the start of the Newton evolution. So we can report additions like the biomechanical metatarsal sensor plate have helped hugely with stability and general 'feel' as you move.
Fit isn't an issue and the 4-way stretch mesh holds your foot in place. In fact, such is its flexibility, runners with wider feet will enjoy the fit. It's water resistant so ready for the elements.
True, the build does make it perfect for all sorts of weather conditions so therefore a perfect everyday trainer, but keep in mind Newton works best as part of your shoe collection - or at least for most of us it does. The theory is great and trust us, you do feel a difference but they do take time to get used to.
