      Comments about Mens Newton Running Gravity III Running Shoe:

      Best Newtons I've owned. I've worn newtons on and off for about 3 years but quit wearing them after experiencing PF and some IT band issues with my last two pair of Gravity shoes.

      So far, this redesigned shoe has been outstanding. I have about 50 miles on them with nothing but positives to say. They are still very fast shoes but without the issues I was experiencing before. I recently ran a 5k in them and it was my fastest recorded 5k.

      I've been wearing Altra Torins recently and still like them and are still in my rotation but I'm only wearing the Torins now on slow/recovery work. I've knocked about :45 per mile off since wearing the new Gravities.

      I'm wearing same size as previous Newtons but these fit much better. The wider toe box reminds me of my Altras but much lighter. Still not enough miles on these to speak to durability as with my older versions the outside lug wore down very fast. The outside lug on this new shoe seems to be holding up well but time will tell.

      Comments about Mens Newton Running Gravity III Running Shoe:

      I started running on Newton's Gravity 3 since beginning of this year. I was used to Saucony Virrata and Progrids before. First thing I noticed was Newton's felt so much lighter even though Saucony's I was wearing were also lighter.
      Transitioned slowly and within few months I was able to put longer runs on these awesome shoes. At the end of my two previous marathons I had blood blisters on 2nd big toe and toe nails were falling off.
      Ran my third marathon at NYC on Newtons this year and was super pleased to finish with no blishers and all my toenails are still intact. I've tried them long runs even on trails and they support me perfectly fine on some technical terrains as well.
      I'm close to 300 miles on it and still dont see much wear yet.. My saucony's before pretty much used to be done by 300 miles.
      Highly recommend and I will buy them again. Wish they were cheaper.. :)

        Was given a pair as a gift just prior to the Denver Rock n Roll 2 weeks ago and used them to run arguably my best race to date. Took them right out of the box and completed the full with zero complaints at all. Great cushioning, comfort and toe room. I have the previous model as well, but Newton made some great improvements on an already great shoe.

          Size wise, I'm using a size 12, but I actually wear 10-1/2s normally. Ensure the shoe fits properly--don't trust how other brands' shoes fit.

          The fifth lug provides far enhanced horizontal stability over the previous generation four-lug model. Despite increasing my mileage, I haven't had a recurrence of Achilles tendonitis, so something about this shoe is done right.

          I waited until there are big sales discounts because these shoes are still quite overpriced.

              Comments about Mens Newton Running Gravity III Running Shoe:

              I've been using the Newton Gravity 3's for tempo runs, and they feel great. As a former sprinter/D1 Goalkeeper, I transitioned from a super-high strike to a midfoot strike using the ASICS Nimbus 15s (which I also love, and am using for my distance runs 12-20 mi). I've noticed, however, that the ASICS are not as comfortable when I'm trying to run 6:00min/mi or faster. The Newton Gravity 3 has solved this problem, and is allowing me to more comfortable pick up my pace for my shorter, faster runs (3-7 miles). I also really love this shoe for my treadmill workouts.

              The shoe feels great to me, almost like a more comfortable sprinting shoe. I constantly stretch out my Achilles and Calves though, so I think that eased the transition. Like a sprint shoe, it is tight around the body of the foot, but has a wider toe-box to let your toes spread on impact. The heel-catch mechanism is great, as well! I don't feel my foot sliding in the shoe at all.

              Weekly Mileage: Varies between 30-50 miles
              Long-Run Speed (8+ miles): approx. 8 min/mi

              Tempo Shoe: Newton Gravity 3
              Distance Shoe: ASICS Nimbus 15

              Goal is to eventually transition to Newton Gravity 3's for longer runs as well.

                  Completed an Ironman event in Newtons a few years a back and the next year the same shoe model got narrower and had to switch to K-Swiss Quicky blade lights. Did not realize my feet over time got wider. Tried on a 1/2 size bigger in the Gravity's an knew this was the shoe for my next IM. Light, durable, and just the right amount of cushioning. Newton - I'm back, the color scheme is awesome also.

                      This is the best performance neutral shoe I have ever run in. The upgrades are a significant improvement from the Gravity II. Cushioning is the most noticeable change, providing the smoothest ride I've felt in any Newton shoe. The shoe feels lighter than previous models and the fifth lug really lets you feel the the road under your feet. I cannot recommend this shoe enough for anyone looking for a performance neutral shoe with a mid /fore foot strike.

                      Shoe is a great trainer for forefoot/midfoot strikers. Loved the Gravity I with my Footbalance footbed insert and loved it. The next go around I went with the Motion II without insert (still a great shoe). I recommend using your own insert/orthotic with a performance neutral shoe for those with lower arches.

                        Comments about Mens Newton Running Gravity III Running Shoe:

                        I have been running in Newtons for years but had an ambivalent reaction to the forefoot lug height and difficulty with form when I tired. I felt the Energy shoe was a positive direction, but clunky compared to the other models. This Newton has improved my pace considerably and has a very smooth forefoot plant (less of a rocker feel). This is my favorite road shoe in a couple of decades of recent running.

                          Light weight, great fit and feel. I like the addition of the 5th lug. I moved from the Sir Isaac to the Gravity. Very pricey. Fortunately, I was able to get a 20% discount which eased sticker shock.
