Updates to Newton Ironman Elite
- Newton offers a limited version of the popular Distance Elite that is inspired by the Ironman event by unveiling the Ironman Elite. The two shoes are practically the same except the Ironman branding in the latter’s toe cap, heel counter, and side panel.
- With a slightly lower sole to ground feel, the Ironman Elite is distinctly designed for speed on regular races or training sessions. It is also an ideal option for serious triathletes who are looking for a quick transition shoe.
- Newton also made the toecap a bit thicker in the Ironman Elite for more protection.
Newton Ironman Elite size and fit
The signature athletic fit of a speed demon continues in the Ironman version. It hugs the heel and the midfoot in security and comfort. The roomy toe box is something that is not usually found in shoes designed for speed. With an added bonus as more room in this area, runners with more volume and width may also get to enjoy the Ironman Elite. Medium is the offered weight of this shoe. Sizing is accurate with 7 to 15 as the choices for the men’s and 5 to 11 the options for the women’s.
Newton’s unique Action/Reaction 4-lug technology in the outsole offers a slightly firm sole for more responsiveness during fast-paced runs. It also helps with the underfoot protection as it allows space between the ground and the midsole. Carbon rubber is utilized in the heel for its superb durability while a high-density rubber in the forefoot enhances traction and durability.
The Action/Reaction technology continues in the midsole’s forefoot and heel areas. These are represented in the form of lugs that flex upon impact to disperse shock and then go back to their original form for excellent responsiveness. There are flex grooves in the forefoot for better flexibility. Providing decent cushioning and midsole durability is a standard-grade EVA.
The upper is very simple and minimal in nature. It has a really breathable mesh that is supported by thin and welded overlays. With enough stretch and good support, the upper hugs the foot like a glove. Fighting off bacteria in the shoe is the duty of Newton’s-exclusive ETC sockliner. A Strobel Last enhances underfoot cushioning and offers added underfoot protection.
