We were born to run. Literally.
The human body is one of the most efficient running machines nature has ever produced, in large part as the result of years of evolution.
Striding bipedalism is a key derived behaviour of hominids that possibly originated soon after the divergence of the chimpanzee and human lineages….
Judged by several criteria, humans perform remarkably well at endurance running, thanks to a diverse array of features, many of which leave traces in the skeleton. The fossil evidence of these features suggests that endurance running is a derived capability of the genus Homo, originating about 2 million years ago, and may have been instrumental in the evolution of the human body form.

Enter Newton Running.
They take great care to research and design shoes to support you as you rediscover and strengthen your natural running motion.
Newton running shoes give you highly responsive cushioning, protection, and enhanced ground feel – a rare combination.
All Newton running shoes are designed to provide you with a more level-to-the-ground platform through minimal drop – like your feet – to help you find the right position as you run. And the shoes are lightweight and comfortable.
When you put all these elements together, you’ll find yourself not only feeling better from your feet, but also running better.
