  • The upper is made up of a water resistant material which was designed to withstand both rain and snow. It's not totally waterproof so it still is ventilated despite it warding off moisture and wetness. The rest of the material the upper is made of is called Engineered Mesh which provides enough support and flexibility.
  • The Newton Gravity All Weather has a glow in the dark feature. Instead of making it reflective for night running, certain components, like the logo on the upper and the bottoms parts of the outsole, glow in the dark for better visibility in low light conditions.
  • The outsole and midsole are integrated with one component shared called the Pop 1, which is the responsive lug platform that delivers the right amount of responsiveness while the runner is in motion. The Pop 1 is one of the Action/Reaction technologies of Newton Running because it reacts to the force applied to it.
  • All of the materials in this Newton running shoe is made with 100% man-made materials. It is vegan-friendly which means no animal products were used in the manufacturing of this shoe.

The Newton Gravity All Weather comes in standard running shoe lengths. Runners who wish to get their pair can make use of their usual length preferences. The same goes for the width, it's also available in standard measurements - B - medium for women and D - medium for men.

The Newton Gravity All Weather has a SHARC (Super High Abrasion Rubber Compound) outsole. It allows the bottom of the shoe to withstand the usual wear and tear garnered by running on different terrain conditions. It also delivers a good amount of traction, preventing the runner from slipping on surfaces that are wet.

A sensor plate component was incorporated on the forefoot area. It was directly placed under the metatarsals. The plate is composed of rectangular lugs with spaces in between. The plate promotes better communication with the ground while regulating the impact garnered upon landing.

The tread of the outsole was specifically designed to mirror the natural motion of the foot. Tactical flex grooves have been introduced to make the SHARC outsole more flexible, going together with the movement of the runner.

When exposed to light, the rubber on the forefoot and heel areas glow in the dark, enabling the runners to have better visibility when running in low light.

The midsole is made of a full-length high-rebound EVA (Ethylene-vinyl acetate). It provides testers with the right amount of cushioning. This platform was made to level out to promote a natural, close-to-the-ground feel for better responsiveness. For this purpose, the drop was also made low, about 3mm from heel-to-toe.

Also on the midsole, is the Action/Reaction Technology on the midfoot which is connected to the lugs on the outsole. Each rectangle lug has a space in the midsole. As the runner goes into the landing phase of the running cycle, the lugs sink into their respective space. Once the weight is lifted, the membrane between each lug acts like a spring, propelling the runner forward, initiating an energetic forward thrust. This is system is called POP 1. POP stands for Point of Power. POP 1 is the first model in the bunch which focuses on natural foot function.

The upper is made up of engineered mesh which is more supportive on the foot than regular mesh. The mesh doesn't lock the foot down in place completely since it still provides a good amount of multi-directional stretch. However, the material still holds its shape well, while maintaining the right amount of ventilation and breathability.

A water-resistant lining was added to the upper to protect the foot from wetness from snow and rain.

The logo on the upper also glows in the dark. Not only does it slightly strengthen the structure of the upper, but it also delivers an aesthetic purpose, going together with the glow-in-the-dark theme of the entire shoe.

The Newton Gravity All Weather is equipped with standard lacing and a padded tongue which was designed to deliver comfort on the dorsal part of the foot.
