Newton Lady Isaac Review

Newton running starts with good posture, an athletic position and continues with an efficient cadence of 170 to 190 steps/minute. Done properly, running feels easier and your feet seem at one with the ground. You are making better use of the proper running muscles and the elastic component of running. The end result is a run that feels more efficient, intuitive, relaxed, natural and less stressful. HELLO BETTER (Newtonrunning.com).





Supportive and light, the Lady Isaacs were a great introduction to the Newton running experience.  Even before getting my Newton Lady Isaacs, I was not a heel striker so I feel the transition was pretty easy.  By keeping some simple tips in mind including an athletic stance, efficient cadence and "land, lever, lift" and starting out slowly as recommended, I had no pain or problems.  For me Newtons make running feel easier and more efficient.  By following the "land, lever, lift" technique in the patented Newton shoes, I feel I have a more natural form resulting in a more efficient run with less stress (and hopefully) no injuries...we'll see if the efficiency also translates into quicker race times:)

  1. Good to hear the transition was so easy, I've heard the lugs are a problem for some.
