This weekend I hit 1,000 miles of running in my Newton Gravity’s. While it is customary to change into a new set of shoes every 300-500 miles, mine have been still going strong and not showing a lot of wear. The wear pattern is even across the lugs too, showing that my foot strike/form must at least consistent.
Until now I didn’t really see a need to get a new pair. I have raced in them a few times, but recently only used them for training (using the Distance lightweight trainer for races). Of course lugs have worn down over time, but the rest of the shoes are still in great shape.
After hitting the 1,000 mile mark – I think it is time these shoes entered retirement. The good news is that Newton just released the new model of the Gravity training shoes, this time in Red!
