From the maiden year of Newton Running in year 2009, RUNNR is the first to introduce this natural running style. Since then, Newton has consistently and tirelessly innovates their shoes to a more impressive performance from time to time. This year 2015, Newton Running is back and proudly unveils its newest line of all-new Kismet and Fate. Read the complete updates below.
2015 Newton Running line introduces all-new Kismet and Fate
Distance IV and IVs get redesigned forefoot
Ever since Newton Running was first introduced by RUNNR in 2009, more and more competitive athletes have embraced the natural running style that the innovative shoe brand espouses. From its headquarters in Boulder, Colorado, Newton Running has churned out seriously fast shoes year after year and racked up impressive wins at both short and long course races.
In 2014, Newton Running introduced the P.O.P. (Point Of Power) system to its patented Action/ReactionTM technology. Adding a fifth lug to its forefoot lug system, the P.O.P. system provides a custom action/reaction to each specific shoe model, tailoring its responsiveness to the wearer’s needs.
Having introduced the revolutionary 5-lug POP1+ platform in 2014 for the Distance, Stability, and MV3 models, Newton now introduces the 2015 Distance IV and Distance IV S with a new forefoot design and new and exciting color ways to really make the wearer stand out in a crowd.
The Distance IV speed trainer features the 5-lug P.O.P. 1+ platform open chamber Action/ReactionTM technology with isolated and more rigid lugs for greater responsiveness, making it ideal for long distance training and high intensity workouts and races.
The forefoot Flex Zone has been redesigned to offer a custom fit and greater forefoot splay. Runners who have evolved their gait to a more midfoot and forefoot focus will likely feel they have hit the sweet spot in the new Distance IV and Distance IV S. The latter includes an Extended Medial Bridge to the midsole to provide more functional support for runners who need a greater surface area on the medial side due to pronation or a flatter archs.
For runners who need an everyday training shoe, Newton introduces two all-new models: Fate and Kismet.
Fate is a “core trainer” with a 5-lug P.O.P. 2 platform, featuring beveled and articulated lugs for a more relaxed ride, and surrounded by static lugs for a broader base. This creates a versatile and balanced ride, offering the dynamic Newton “pop” in a more relaxed package ideal for everyday training and racing in an all-around, go-to shoe.
It features a mesh upper with 36-degree reflectivity, heel lace lock, and a durable outsole composite in the forefoot.
The Newton Fate has a 4.5mm drop and a 4mm wider base than the Kismet.
Kismet offers similar features as the Fate but adds an Extended Medial Bridge for additional stability.
All 2015 Newton Running models also feature highly breathable mesh uppers with seamless construction for a more glove-like fit, reducing the risk of chafing for those who like to run sock-less.
Suggested Retail Prices for the Newton Distance IV / IV S is P7,995 while the Fate and Kismet are both priced at P8,995.
