Newton Fate 2 Performance Review

When knowing the availability of  the Newton Fate 2 , I was very thrilled and just could not wait to have one because I knew at the very beginning that in order to run efficiently and comfortably, it was a must to equip a pair of good running shoes. So here is the review of this Newton Fate 2.

Before looking closely at the shoes, I want to mention something of the brand. Newtons have always been known as a niche and professional running shoe brand, and said to be a great treasure of the United States. The company has used Newtonian mechanics principle perfectly and it take the company 12 years to develop the shoes with 9 US patents. Compared to the long-established predecessors like New Balance, Asics and Brooks, there must be something unique about the niche and professional brand that has gained a foothold in the face of this fierce competitive market.

According to the official introduction, FATE 2 is a multifunctional running shoe with a more breathable upper and talus elastic liner for better foot protection. The slightly tilted front thruster fully demonstrates the effect of Action/Reaction Technology, which offers traction in startup, thus making walking and running easier and more comfortably. Coupled with solid  cushioning at the front and the rear, the shoe gives you a consistently perfect running experience.

Looking back at the previous versions of Newton shoes, I found that all the colorways of its shoes were visually shocking. As for this one, it is the classic colorway of red and black. Though it is eye-catching and coquettish, you can easily deal with all kinds of rugged roads.

My feet are wide and if the last of a shoe is narrow, I will ditch it immediately no matter how good or how cool it is. But this Newton Fate 2 is just right for runners with wide feet. The vamp uses a new seamless hollow woven mesh with no stitching to provide the best comfort and air permeability for us. The details of the shoes are also seriously and carefully designed, including the words and logos on the shoe which makes it all the more beautiful.

With respect to the toe, there is the leather which is used to offer more support while the black rubber is here to protect our toes and enhance durability. Such design will only result in a more wear-resistant and practical performance of the shoe. At the two sides near the toe part are made respectively 4 holes to improve air permeability, keeping the inside of the shoes dry and comfortable.

The design of the tongue is actually quite beautiful. When we put on the running shoes, the tongue of the shoes is automatically exposed. And the words “Newton Fate 2” is very obvious. In addition, the tongue is very light and breathable, helping us to quickly dissipate heat during the running, and will not wear our feet. 

The “4.5” in the heel indicates the height difference between the front and the rear parts, which helps improve cushioning performance and develop good running posture. Besides, the heel and the toe both adopt the reflective design which plays a significant role in night running. After all, more and more white collars will choose to run at night. Therefore, I think such design is actually awesome.

The most unique aspect of Newton running shoes lies in their front foot design. The P.O.P(Point of Power) is a proprietary design  of the Newton running shoes. Actually, Newton has designed three P.O.P. forefoot thrusters with different shapes and efficiencies. Respectively , they are the P.O.P 1, the P.O.P 2 and the P.O.P 3. For more details about their different performances, you can refer to the Internet.


To summarize, if asked to describe the shoes with only one word, I would say that the shoes are superior, and if asked to make a recommendation for running, I would then highly suggest this one, Newton Fate 2. In short, it has all the necessary performances that are required of a running shoe. What’s more, it has the exclusive tech that is so helpful and compelling.
