I have been running with the Newton neutral racers for 2 or 3 years and like the fact that they are light weight and they have the mid foot lugs which force me to run mid to front foot. It took me 8 or 9 weeks to transition fully to these shoes. I tend to run half marathons.
I want to run a PB half marathon in March and then transition to running a full marathon later in the year and if possible want to not change the type and style of shoe that I have so am thinking of changing shoes now so that I can adjust?
However these shoes have become expensive and hard to get hold of - can anyone recommend a shoe suitable for what I am aiming for - many thanks
The Newton Distance has a soft(ish) sole, why not opt for the Newton Gravity which is more hard wearing. Either shoe is suitable for Marathon or longer distance
Newtons are available on line from Newton themselves plus quite a few other retailers such as b2p, Apex etc.
They have classic and limited edition gravity on 25% off RRP on the newton website, and 35% off RRP on the B2P Sports website. I have raced in the Distance U up to half marathon.
