Has anybody given these newton trainers a go then? What did you think?
I have 2 pairs of Newtons.
They are great for track work and fast runs on firm surfaces.They slip on wet tarmac.I wear them off road when the going is firm with no problems.The AW (all weather) are good at keeping your fet dry unless you run through a deep puddle.
They are comfortable to wear, the ladies fit is gender specific.
Some runners find that their calves are sore to begin with though I didn't really notice this. I got used to them very quickly.
Cheers Runnaholic, i'll have a spy of that review.
Bikermouse what was your running like previously? I mean were you naturally a forefoot runner anyway? My shoes get a hammering around the forefoot and see little wear on the heel, maybe just getting a couple of scuffs during warm up/warm down. I dont like the sound of slipping on wet tarmac as its not exactly sunny up north.... i have experianced this with some of the nike range aswell, fortunatly it wasnt my running shoes but those nike shox things, really poor forefoot grip on those.
