Newton Running Motion All-Weather Shoe

Regular readers know about my love affair with Newton Running, a Boulder, Colo., running-shoe company. But it was with much regret each autumn for the last two years when I had to put my Newtons away, as the meshy shoes do not acquiesce with cold weather.

The company’s (www.newtonrunning.com) latest, the Motion All-Weather Shoe, was designed for cold, damp weather. Released this week, the $175 shoe — yep, they do not come cheap — has a water-repellant upper and a sticky-rubber outsole made to provide better grip and traction in cold temperatures. Here are three sneak peek photos. The company is shipping me a test pair to demo, so I’ll report back soon with feedback on this new Newton shoe designed for the cold.

So you haven’t these shoes yet, but Outside Magazine had no problem recommending them for winter running on national morning television last week. I’ve been wondering if some of the reviews you all post were a little “hollow”. Apparently, they are a bit light on the actual testing before the writing of a review.

And even if they had gore-tex liners and were made from unobtanium (patent pending) they still wouldn’t be worth that price. The tread pattern looks woefully inadequate as well, so I’ll be curious to see what you think of their “grip-tion”.

Right, I have not yet tested these. Will be curious to see how the Newton sole performs on snowy sidewalks here in MN. . .

the all weather version runs larger in size than the normal newtons. You should get a half size smaller.
