Who should buy the Newton Distance Elite
You will love the Newton Distance Elite if:
- You want breathable yet with enough cushioning shoes for long-distance runnings
- You want a durable, lightweight neutral shoe for competition
Ultimate responsiveness in the outsole
The outsole features the unique Action/Reaction lugs that are situated right beneath the metatarsals. Based on their study, this never-seen-before outsole design gives ultimate responsiveness and underfoot protection.
A high-density rubber is used in the forefoot for traction and durability while a carbon rubber is utilized in the heel for protection against wear and tear.
Action/ Reaction Technology
The Newton Distance Elite’s midsole is also pretty minimal, due to the racing structure of the shoe.
In place is the Action/ Reaction Technology, which can be seen in the forefoot and heel. These are in the form of external lugs that compress to absorb the shock forces when running and release the collected energy during toe-off.
Aside from the energy-return properties of the shoe, the Met-flex grooves in the forefoot improve the foot’s ability to flex naturally. The runner can also expect a comfortable cushioning in the underfoot, because of the EVA midsole.
Make running dry and cool with The Newton Distance Elite
The main coverage is made up of open mesh, a breathable and quick-drying material that will keep the foot dry and cool. Minimal overlays are fitted in strategic areas for better support and help with the secure fit and foot-hugging wrap.
In an effort to reduce irritation and bacteria, the brand incorporated the ETC sock liner and metatarsal stretch panels in the forefoot to maintain a healthy and hotspot-free environment.
The slip-proof laces are also present with double-eyelets, as well as the strobe last that ensures a smooth underfoot feel. A toe cap that is a bit thicker with enough flexibility prevents the toes from getting bruised.
