We have received our Men's and Women's Newton Energy NR II running shoes. It stays with a 6mm heel-to-toe drop, but now is 4mm wider The extended medial bridge, or EMB, offers a little stability to help those that need, and offer width for those who need some space.
Other changes include a re-tooled engineered mesh upper with heat welded strapping for structural support. The wrap is definitely a little tighter in this version than last year's. The Energy NR II has a soft P.O.P 3 ride, with foam filled lugs. This makes it perfect for those looking for a less aggressive Newton to transition into, or those looking for a soft recovery shoe.
