Achieving a combination of ample underfoot protection and race-ready responsiveness, the BOCO AT II is a titan of a trail shoe.
- The major update on the Newton BoCo AT II features a new and lightweight upper coverage. It comes with an enclosed, water-repellent upper that provides breathability and durability. It keeps foot dry while running on wet conditions.
- There is an increase in the overall weight of the shoe compared to its predecessor because of the presence of the water-repellent coating and other enhancements in the upper built.
The fit of the BoCo AT II is designed for runners with average foot measurements. The heel and midfoot provides a snug fit while the forefoot has generous room for the toes to splay. Newton is not offering this shoe in men’s sizes. Men runners should buy +1.5 sizes up the women's corresponding sizes.
The BoCo AT II still utilizes the multi-directional lugs that deliver maximum grip even on uneven terrain. The 4-Lug Action/Reaction technology strategically placed in the forefoot area is designed for a responsive and resilient ride. This feature could also be found in the Newton Gravity 8, one of the brand's most popular running shoes. The high-density rubber in the sole unit gives durability to the shoe’s high-abrasion areas.
The midsole of the shoe uses a single-density EVA midsole that is soft enough to provide reliable cushioning and comfortable underfoot protection. For an enhanced ground feel, Newton utilizes the biomechanical metatarsal sensor plate that offers a continuous sensory feedback.
The Newton BoCo II has a water-repellent upper that gives both breathability and protection. It has a fast drying property and it keeps small debris out while running. This works perfectly with the shoe’s durable rubber toe bumper that is designed to protect the toes from rock impact and other trail hazards. Aside from the closed-mesh upper, the shoe also has a gusseted tongue that keeps debris and dirt out.
