  • The Newton Fate 3 is a running shoe that’s designed for the neutral pronator. It makes use of a façade that’s reminiscent of its direct predecessor, the Fate 2. The significant difference is in the underfoot platform which now uses the Newtonium foam, a layer that offers enhanced responsiveness during each step.
  • Most of the technologies and features from the previous iteration have been retained to allow the wearer to stay familiar with the fit and feel of the Fate series. Breathable mesh still makes up most of the upper unit, and it’s accompanied by stretchy forefoot panels and printed overlays.

The Newton Fate 3 is true to size. It follows the inclinations of runners when it comes to length. The available widths are B – Medium for women and D – Medium for men. It has a semi-curved shape that mimics the natural curvature of the human foot.

The Newton Fate 3 makes use of SHARC, protective layer that is formed out of an abrasion-resistant compound. It shields the full-length foam from the abrasive nature of the asphalt. It is also responsible for traction on the surfaces, especially the roads.

A flex groove in the forefoot section makes sure to encourage the bending of the metatarsals during the toe-off phase of the gait cycle.

EVA or ethylene vinyl acetate is the primary midsole foam of the Newton Fate 3. It runs the entire length of the platform. Its purpose is to carry the foot and keep it comfortable.

The Newtonian foam is a layer right above the EVA. It provides cushioning and offers shock attenuation during the landing phase. Brand loyalists would be familiar with this familiar; it is also available in some of Newton's most popular shoes, including the Gravity 8.

The P.O.P. 2 (Point of Power) is made up of a proprietary design that involves ground-contact cushioning lugs that are placed in the forefoot section. The purpose of these indentations is to provide additional support and to facilitate a smooth transition through the gait cycle. The lugs have slanted edges that enable forward propulsion during the toe-off.

The Action/Reaction™ Technology is a design that causes the cushioning lugs to have a trampoline-like performance when the shoe is in use. Applying pressure on them causes them to contract and sink into the sole unit; lifting the weight lets them bound back into place. Such a mechanism generates energized liftoffs.

A biomechanical metatarsal sensor plate permits proprioception. It’s a helpful way to encourage runners to feel the ground and achieve surface control throughout the running session.

The ETC Sockliner has an antibacterial property that prevents the buildup of odor-causing bacteria.

The upper unit of the Newton Fate 3 makes use of Open Mesh, which is a quick-drying material that has open pores for ventilation. Such a configuration prevents the foot from heating up or sweating.

There are stretch panels in the metatarsal area. These pliable fabrics allow the joints of the toes to bend naturally and not be restricted during the activity.

No-sew overlays are placed in strategic areas of the upper. These thin layers help in securing the foot and keeping it in place.

The Strobel Last involves stitching the edges of the upper unit to a board on the platform. This structure aims to heighten durability while also encouraging a non-irritating in-shoe experience.
