Newton’s are very different from other shoes and making the switch from my Adidas Boston’s (which I have been running in for years) was a pretty tough one. But, I after this first run, I am convinced I made the right choice.
From the Newton website:
Most running shoes utilize passive cushioning like EVA foam, gel or air that lose energy as they are engaged. Like a mattress, these materials flatten under your body weight over time.
With Action/ReactionTM technology, you will immediately experience a highly responsive and engaging cushioning that protects and loses less energy with every step you take. Some people have described our cushioning as a “trampoline,” only more fun.
Newton Running shoes are designed with a minimal “drop” – or height difference – between the height of the heel and the ball of the foot. A more level-to-the-ground platform positions you to support a natural running motion.
Pretty cool huh?
I am pretty stoked about our plans this weekend and I can’t wait to tell you all about the GOTR race on Monday! Have a wonderful weekend!
What kind of shoe do you run in? What do you have planned for the weekend?
