- The Newton Distance V comes with an updated upper. The new improvements in the upper give better ventilation and comfort. It also made enhancements to accommodate foot splay during the propulsion stage of the running cycle.
The 5th version of the Newton Distance has a half size larger than the standard running shoe size. Just like its predecessor, it accommodates and gives a comfortable fit to runners with narrow or medium foot shapes. The heel is a bit narrow but the midfoot and the forefoot are of standards measurements.
The outsole unit of the shoe features the durable High-Density EVA that does not only give a long-lasting outsole performance but also delivers an impressive high-rebound attribute that improves performance.
In order to give a reliable outsole that lasts for long, the brand uses the super high-abrasion rubber compound that is really designed for shoe’s longevity. It is an impressive rubber element that withstands the damaging properties of the road.
The Distance V utilizes the brand’s Action/Reaction Technology from the heel to the forefoot area. It absorbs the ground impact for a smoother landing and releases the energy for a more powerful toe-off. The Gravity 8 from Newton is another competition running shoe that showcases this technology.
The midsole unit of the shoe features the durable High-Rebound EVA that does not only give a long-lasting performance but also delivers an impressive high-rebound attribute that improves performance.
It also uses the Biomechanical metatarsal sensor plate that increases ground surface communication for an efficient stride with added stability.
A lightweight and breathable mesh that keeps the foot well-ventilated and comfortable composed the upper unit of the Newton Distance V. It also has overlays anatomically placed in the upper to deliver a secure fit. A heel lace lock system was also utilized to give a snug heel lockdown fit.
The new full flex zone found in the upper accommodates foot splay at the propulsion stage of the running cycle.
