The secret sauce powering the speed of Newton Running shoes is its proprietary Action/Reaction™ Technology. Generated by the active movement of the lugs, Action/Reaction Technology creates a responsive, trampoline-like cushioning system that provides quicker bounce-back and loses less energy than a traditional foam-core running shoe.
Over time, many shoe designs have become thicker, cushier and heavier with greater heel heights. In the spirit of making every stride better, Newton shoes feature lower heel to toe drops to put you in a position to run most naturally.
If you love the responsive yet cushioned feel of the lugs in the forefoot, you’ll be happy to find out the same technology exists in the heel. With Newton Running, you get full-foot cushioning and protection.
P.O.P, or Point of Power, is the patented design that differentiates the shape, ride, and feel of our Action/Reaction Technology or lug system. Our shoes have three different P.O.P designations for three different rides.
Prominent, powerful lugs with square corners deliver our most responsive, performance ride.
Beveled lugs allow for a smoother ride and offer a great introduction to Newton’s Action/Reaction Technology.
Foam-backed and less pronounced lugs produce our softest ride.
