Newton Stability Racer — ($155)


2010 Summer Shoe Guide Homepage

Those seeking a forefoot-friendly, lightweight shoe that doesn’t spare creature comforts should put the Stability Racer on their list. With a munificent upper fit and midsole metatarsal sensor plate, this shoe is a comfortable choice for midfoot strikers or those who want encouragement to run more on the fore of their feet. Our testers found the Racer fit a little small and suggest a half-size bigger; those who are already forefoot runners say the shoe pushes them a little more forward than they want. The open mesh upper is extremely breathable, and, in concert with a wide toe box, makes these shoes almost blister-proof.
