I was a little skeptical when I attended the Newton Retail Sales Conference in Boulder. I thought their shoe was kind of gimmick since it was made for a much smaller percentage of runners. You had to almost be a Kona athlete or elite marathoner with perfect form to use these shoes.

When I received a pair of the new Isaac’s I tried them on, and they felt different from the previous models I had tried at the shop. They felt different in a good way, much less foreign feeling. The front lugs were less pronounced, the shoe felt a bit more solid and stable. I went for a 6 mile run that afternoon, and had no issues with the shoes. In fact, these shoes felt awesome. I am a mid-foot striker, and I really felt how light these shoes made my strike feel.

As a comparison, I wore my Mizuno Wave Rider 12 the next morning for our group run. We did around 7.5 miles, and I could really tell the difference. While the Mizuno’s are a nice, light show in their own right, there was just too big a difference. Long story short, my Mizuno’s are now my shop shoes, and the Newton Isaac is my new running shoe.

 

Come on in and check them out at the shop. They fit a much wider range of folks and foot strikes. We will be having a ChiRunning clinic on September 26th, with a Newton rep here as well.
