Guys, my new Newtons are here! I mentioned last week how my last pair of Newtons are just not for me, so I exchanged them for a different pair-the Newton Gravity! They came this past weekend, and I’ve had the chance to try them out for a few days now.
They arrived on Saturday evening, so on Sunday, I decided to use them for my morning T25 core workout! They felt pretty comfy putting them on, and seemed to stabilize my feet well, give the support needed, and weren’t too bulky.
On Monday, I wanted to try them out again and sort of “break them in” before running in them, so I wore them for my T25 Upper Focus and Rip’t Circuit workouts. Both these workouts involved jumping, in-place sprinting, and squats, so I figured it would be a good test of the shoes’ stability. I liked them a lot! When I was using my other Newtons for T25, they made my feet fall asleep, so I was worried about that, but it didn’t happen! Yay! It’s the small things in life, folks.
Yesterday morning, I decided to wear them out on my run because there wasn’t any snow-I know! I laced them up all the way (they have two eye-lits on the top), which I think ended up being a bad decision. That put a lot of pressure on my ankles and got annoying by the end of my run. I think next time I’ll only put them through one eye-lit. I felt VERY stable on my run, was up on my mid-foot/fore-foot with landing the whole time, and they felt relatively light. I didn’t have any pressure on the top of my foot where my other shoes hurt me, so that was awesome. My feet were freezing by the end of the run though! The shoes are all mesh on the front, so they didn’t offer much for the cold Oh well, at least spring is coming soon so I shouldn’t have to worry about that for long! I had a great workout in the shoes overall, and I think I’m going to like them! Obviously I need more than 3 days of wearing them to make that final decision, but so far I don’t have any complaints! I’ll let you know my thoughts after I use them a few more times, but right now I think I may have found the ones! *hopes I didn’t just jinx myself!
How about you guys? Do you have a favorite shoe to run in? Have you had the same make/model for years? I’d love to hear what your perfect shoe is! I’m still open to suggestions
