The newest model gets even softer, thanks to a new bouncy foam that sits close to the foot.
I have no doubt they’d perform just as well on the roads and sidewalks, but right now they are my nice, clean treadmill shoes.
While it takes some getting used to, the Gravity VI will undoubtedly meet your everyday trainer needs.
They are a badass looking running shoe with the trademark bright color combination.
Updates to Newton Gravity 6
- The Newton Gravity 6 is a lightweight, low-offset running shoe that performs well in a wide variety of paces. It features the Newtonium midsole along with a well-padded POP1 material. This provides plenty of energy return for a smoother underfoot feel.
- It has a seamless and breathable upper that is made up of Engineered Mesh. This protects the runner’s foot from overheating after long runs.
- It has a shorter tongue that provides a more flexible and breathable mesh.
Newton Gravity 6 size and fit
The Newton Gravity 6 has a standard running shoe length when it comes to sizing. This highly-responsive shoe is best for runners who want to excel in different settings. It accommodates the runner’s specific training needs. For the men’s version, the available width is D – Medium. For the women’s version, it is B - Medium.
The Newton Gravity 6 has a SHARC outsole that is formed in a phalangeal pattern. It provides an enhanced and increased floor fighting traction. It works well on both wet and dry conditions while adapting to the natural movements of the runner’s foot.
The forefoot is made up of a High-Density Rubber that is strategically placed to provide a long-lasting performance of the outsole.
The Newton Gravity 6 utilizes a high-rebound EVA for better cushioning. IT gives added durability from the destructive nature of the trails and roads.
The Newton Gravity 6 features a new technology that is called the Newtonium Cushioning System. The foam offers a more comfortable and responsive cushioning that is even closer to the runner’s foot. This provides runners a more energetic ride.
The heel and the forefoot utilize the Action/Reaction Technology, which provides an agreeable return of energy to the foot of the runner. When the external sole unit’s lugs are compressed, shock energy is absorbed and energy is released during toe-off. The Newton Gravity's latest iteration also makes use of the Action/Reaction technology.
Full-foot cushioning and enhanced flexibility are provided because of the innovative POP1 features of this shoe. The energy created from the foot’s mid-stance and the heel strike is stored in the external lugs. These lugs act like a rubber band that pushes them off to their next step. This provides runners with a faster and responsive underfoot feel.
The High Rebound EVA works well with the POP1 technology. This aids in the responsive ride and sufficient cushioning of the shoe.
The Newton Gravity 6 has a Biomechanical Metatarsal Sensor Plate. This sensor plate increases the runner’s proprioception. These proprioceptors produce coordinated movement for a more flexible and better ride.
It has an ETC Sockliner. This plays a vital role in ensuring the long-term foot comfort when runners wear the shoe.
A Strobel Last is stitched to the upper of the Newton Gravity 6. This offers a higher strength and flexibility as well as a more comfortable underfoot feel.
The Newton Gravity 6 has a seamless, lightweight Engineered Mesh that allows air to go through the upper. This creates a micro-climate within the shoe to keep the runner’s foot cool and dry.
It has a unique, 4-Way Stretch Mesh Metatarsal Panel that offers a more customized fit. This is an important part of the upper that allows the shoe to adapt and move the runner’s foot without restricting its movements.
The tongue is a breathable and flexible mesh. This is updated to enhance the upper fit. It provides an optimal blend of performance and comfort.
It has a Heel Lace Lock that creates an extra security for the foot. This is to keep the heel and the ankle area tight.
It has a semi-flat, lightweight laces that maintain a consistent and snug fit throughout the running activity.
The Newton Gravity 6 has an updated Pre-Molded Heel Counter. This creates a better heel support, form and fit.
It has a Reinforced Eyelets as well. This helps in providing a more secure fit.
The 360 Degree Reflectivity of this shoe increases visibility. This ensures that runners can be seen even in low-light conditions.
