The Newton BOCO Sol is a solid, durable all-terrain shoe.
This is a good pick for those that are not swept up in the max shoe trend. My feet had no blisters and felt great after 120 miles in 6 days, that is success in any shoe.
The BoCo Sol is a light, nimble and very flexible trail shoe with moderate cushioning and protection for running on a wide variety of surfaces.
Again striking a balance between old and new, the shallow drop still allows for a traditional heel or midfoot strike, but with a relatively low stack height and short drop.
Updates to Newton BoCo Sol
- The Newton BoCo Sol features the Newton’s Action/Reaction technology that is designed to deliver an efficient run. The cushioning has an increased energy-rebound property and improved responsiveness in the forefoot area.
- This shoe comes with an improved outsole that is designed for different terrains. The shoe has aggressive lugs that provide impressive grip on both wet and dry surfaces. The all-terrain outsole of the BoCo Sol also gives added protection on rough surfaces.
Newton BoCo Sol size and fit
The Boco Sol fits large and is available in half size larger than the standard running shoe length. The heel, midfoot and forefoot area are in medium measurements, providing a snug fit to those with medium and slightly wide foot types. This shoe is available in standard D and B widths for men’s and women’s versions, respectively.
The outsole unit features the trail-specific outsole that has multi-directional lugs. These lugs provide enhanced traction and grip on different types of terrain. The high-density rubber in the forefoot gives added durability on high wear areas for a long-lasting outsole.
The midsole features the brand’s Action/Reaction technology that is extended from the heel to the forefoot. It absorbs shock efficiently and releases stored energy for a much powerful toe-offs. The Action/Reaction technology is also present in the Newton Gravity 8, which is one of the brand's most popular shoes. The full-length EVA foam provides durable and soft underfoot protection. The Biomechanical metatarsal sensor plate increases ground contact for constant sensory feedback.
The Newton BoCo Sol features a breathable open mesh upper wherein the materials have a water repellent coating. The gusseted tongue keeps debris from entering the shoe while running. It has non-slip lace and heel lock lace that delivers a secure and snug fit. The 360-degree reflectivity increases visibility while running on low light conditions.
