Distance S 8
Purchased as a bday gift for hubby. He loves them. Usually wears a wide 10.5-11 in new balance. The 11 reg width fit perfectly. He said he forgot he was wearing shoes they were so comfortable. Good cushion and good support. They have just enough detail to make them interesting without being too loud.

I bought these about 6 months ago. I absolutely loved them, felt great right away. But the mesh stared to separate from the rubber at the toe. Was annoyed because they were so expensive to break down in less than a year. So I sewed the mesh back together. 3 weeks after that the mesh is wearing down at the toe so now I'm stuck again trying to fix some over priced shoe for the quality. Steer clear of these! Unless you're up for buying new shoes every 6 mons!

Well, I busted my hip and so i could not really work with any of shoes until my bod caught up. Now that I have been able to try on the Newton, it just has too little support for me. Howeve,r I otherwise love the color and styling.

These sneaks feel like running on pillows.

I have tried many brands of sneakers, but for the way I run, Newtons are far and away the best. This pair was a replacement for an old pair of Newton 2's, which are also size 11.5's. They fit exactly like the old ones, except that being newer, they are firmer, and offer excellent arch support. The service from Zappos was excellent. When UPS was delaying delivery because of the weather, I couldn't directly find the status of the delivery from UPS. I spoke to a Zappos customer service rep who was able to contact UPS, find the status, and ensure that the delivery would happen in the next couple of days.

No arch support, but that is intended. These shoes are perfect for moderate runners (average 3-5 miles, 3-times a week)

This is a really pretty shoe. Like others I went up a half a size. It was definitely comfortable but it felt very slippy in the back of the foot. Sending it back.

This was not the shoe for me. I normally wear Gravity since they stopped making the Energy. I wish they would bring that style back! It is still my favorite. Great support and great as a walking shoe. This shoe seemed to run either true to size or just a little bigger. I'm not sure because I am comparing it to Gravity which seems to be running small in the newest edition. I also didn't love the color combo this time. I like crazy colors. It helps to be seen. Black not so much.

Great shoes!!! Newton’s are great!!!

This shoe is very well made but the design is a bit "busy", especially the part of the sole that passes under the instep, the marbley painted on stuff. That said, I suspect this is a good running shoe for some. It has a rather strange sole and you roll forward with each step, but rather than a continuous roll, it feels as if there's a "tipping point" and you suddenly are propelled forward once you pass that point. As I say, perhaps that would be an advantage for a runner. I would also say that it seemed narrower than most to me.

Loved the bright colors. The shoe felt too 'shallow' for my foot sadly. I'm looking for more support around the whole foot. Little arch support and there's no way insoles would fit in these. Back I go to my search for a good neutral running shoe.

This shoe is very light and is very comfortable.

While they take some getting used to, the lug encourages leverage and lift. This is my first pair of Newtons so if you have never worn them, be sure to wear indoors at first to see if they are for you. They felt different at first, but now I like them.

light as air and super comfortable. I have a narrow foot with a wide forefoot. Lots of room in the toe box. I normally wear an 11.5 but had to return for a 12. Now all is well. Pricey but worth it!

low star rating only to draw attention for people about to purchase: note that this shoe runs HUGE! I've been wearing Newtons for years (in the same size) and for some reason this particular shoe is about a size and a half too big
Zappos Reviewer on November 02, 2018
LOVE LOVE LOVE these shoes. Was a bit leary of the nubs underneath the ball of my foot . . . but I've learned to love them. I'm a bit of a toe-walker so it's not an issue. Not a huge amount of cushion, but somehow remains an incredibly comfortable shoe. I've worn them all day at work and my feet aren't tired and worn out when I get home. Love the bumblebee color scheme too!

Perfect fit (without the orthotic) Order 1/2 size larger if you wear an Rx orthotic. Very cute.

I love Newton’s. These are similar to other Fate models I’ve owned before. They seem lighter, but maybe that’s because they have fewer miles on them. Also the shoes look much better in real life. I thought the colors looked awful in the photos, but I actually like the look of the actual shoe.
Gregory from Pomona, CA on October 11, 2018
I love this well-made, high quality shoe. It is wide and roomy for my wide feet. It is lightweight and a joy straight out of the box (I.e., no breaking in required).
Kim from Fort Collins, CO on October 10, 2018
I love these shoes. Perfect support with a little bounce. I highly recommend these shoes. This is my first pair of Newton, I normally wear Brooks...I love these so much, I want to get several pair! Great for walking and running! Love! I wish there were more color options...

First a caveat, this is my first real pair of running shoes. These are very comfortable. They run a little small IMHO. I wear a 10.5 and I bought an 11. There’s about a half inch on the big toe but, when I get running, my feet still feel a little cramped - not uncomfortable. When I walk in them, I feel my heels sliding up and down from the cushioning but, when I tug on the heels, my feet do not slide and I have never experienced rubbing from running. My one concern is durability. These shoes are made of very light weight materials. I’ve put an estimated 10 miles a week on these shoes for the month that I’ve had them. So far they still look in excellent condition. Overall, I am extremely pleased with these shoes and, provided I and satisfied with the wear I get from this pair, I will purchase another pair of Newtons. The ridge on the bottom of the shoe across the balls of my feet was different at first but I’ve come to really love it.

Love this brand. I have 3 pairs of Newtons, only problem they run a full size small. I wear a 9 1/2 in majority of shoes, but 10 1/2 in Newtons. Great support, color, wear.

I did the online survey tool to figure out which Newton running shoe was the best fir for me. I LOVE these! I run outside on pavement and these are going to be amazing. They are light, but the bottoms feel so supportive for running on a hard surface. This is my first pair of Newtons. I am a huge, new fan! They are even so much cuter than my old running shoes that had a thicker sole for added support. The colors are cuter in person, and the white symbol on the side sparkles. I feel like I could wear these anywhere. I can't wait to run in them!
