  • The fifth version of the Newton Fate offers an all-around improved structure to handle the demands of everyday running. Updates of this shoe include tweaks in the upper to deliver increased breathability and durability, as well as an enhanced sole unit that aims for a more responsive cushioning experience than before.
  • Runners who have worn the Newton Fate 4 would find this latest version familiar as it presents the same technologies as its predecessor. The Newton Fate 5 is also equipped with a suitable amount of comfort and cushioning to cater to both beginner and intermediate-level runners.

With the Newton Fate 5 following the standard running shoe length, wearers should find that it is true-to-size. The interior room of the shoe allows for a comfortable toe splay and a snug fit around the midfoot and heel. The Newton Fate 5 is available in Medium width for both the men’s and women’s versions.

Newton’s super high abrasion rubber compound (s.h.a.r.c.) forms the outsole of the Fate 5. Placed in the shoe’s high-wear areas, the s.h.a.r.c. allows traction in both wet and dry road surfaces. Additionally, the material provides protection against damages and foot injuries.

The principal feature of the Newton Fate 5’s midsole is the Newtonium foam. This is a full-length foam made from high-rebound ethylene-vinyl acetate (EVA) that has energy-returning and shock-absorbing capacities. The Newtonium foam also works in distributing impact while also maintaining the durability of the structure. Directly underneath the Newtonium foam is another layer of EVA, which serves as the main cushioning unit of the shoe.

The Newtonium foam employs the brand’s Action/Reaction technology to provide a responsive mechanism that is comparable to a trampoline. This results in the Newton Fate 5 being bouncy but not at the risk of energy loss. Another running shoe from the brand, called the Gravity 8, also makes use of the Action/Reaction technology to provide the runner with a responsive ride.

At the forefoot is a biomechanical sensor plate that promotes maximum ground feel and sensory feedback. The unit helps in natural foot motions and enables surface control.

The engineered mesh upper of the Fate 5 is comprised of invisible, open pores that not only permit airflow but also give the shoe a quick-drying capability. It is reinforced by overlays that are fused—instead of stitched—to it to provide a contoured and seamless fit. 

There are metatarsal stretch panels found in the forefoot. The panels serve as protective elements to cover the toes and forefoot, preventing skin irritation

The Strobel lasting technique employed by the Newton Fate 5 promotes a comfortable in-shoe feel.
