Looking for a cool new pair of sneakers to get you moving well into 2008?
Newton Running shoes were developed to make your feet think they're barefoot and therefore increase your performance. The sole of the Newton mimics your own, allowing your foot to move freely and promote a forefoot impact that many running experts feel is a safer way to run. This happens because the shoes have protruding treads under the balls of your feet that catch first as your foot lands while running, which means you should land and push off from the designed spot. Fancy new shoes don't come cheap however, one pair starts at $155 — buyer beware as these sneaks can feel a little awkward at first and may take some time to get used to. Check them out and buy them online here.
I so wonder how these compare with MBTs, which are also designed to mimic barefoot motion. MBTs are not for running though; so let me know in the comments section below if you have tried these Newton shoes.
