2012 Newton Gravity Shoe Review .....Running With Training Wheels!
Since coming back from my April knee surgery, I had decided to try and move to lower profile shoes....shoes with a lower drop from heel to toe. I have been a forefoot to midfoot runner for all of my 36 years, only moving to the back of my shoe when highly fatigued. I have been primarily running in shoes with a drop between 4 and 8 millimeters. I have been using the brooks pure flow, asics gel sky speed, asics gel lyte 33 (primarily on treadmill), and saucony guide 5 for longer runs. Three weeks ago I purchased a pair of Newton Gravity shoes. I had always wanted to try them, but felt I needed to start moving down in shoe drop first, and the high price of the shoe always seemed too prohibitive to take the risk. Well, as I said, I have been running in lower shoes of late, and I was able to find these at trisports on sale, and with a coupon code, I was able to get them down from their $175 list price to $105. This is above my usual price limit of one hundred, but if I was ever going to try them, The time was now.
