Newton Gravity V Performance Review

Nowadays, running has become an integral part of many people’s life and because of this, all kinds of running shoe brands have also emerged to meet people’s needs. But this is good news for us since we can have more choices as well as more experiences. And among the many brands, Newton is certainly a superior one. As one of the most professional and niche brands in the field of running shoes, Newton has gone through a 12-year research and development process and dedicated a creative running shoe for the majority of runners, whose excellent performance has made it the first choice of many runners in the world. It is the Newton Gravity V .

The Newton Gravity series has ushered in its fifth edition in 2016. This new version still adopts the seamless material in the vamp, whose design looks nicer than the previous ones, however. There are also more colorways for you to choose from, and the durability, of course,  has also  been greatly improved. Another key improvement is in the shoe tongue, which makes the shoe more comfortable and breathable.

The Newton   shoes are positioned as the “serious runners”. No matter how bright the shoes’ colorways are, their performances are always online, not in the least affected by their outside impressions perceived by most people. But since there are more colorways to choose from, it should be mentioned that all the colorways are visually shocking but remains nice at the same time.

The Newton Gravity V’s appearance is actually cool, exuding the air of superiority. For the vamp, it is the traditional mesh material which can ensure breathability. The tech signs and number indicating height difference on the outside of the midsole are quite ordinary, but when it comes to the outsole you are mostly likely to get surprised as I did.

The whole shoes are indeed very good. The leather in the toe allows our feet to move inside the shoes and the woven fabric of both the inside and outside of the front part is very soft. As you can see, there are reflective strips designed on both the inside and outside of the toe and heel of the shoe, which is the most obvious of Newton logos and can ensure the safety of running at night.

With respect to the shoes’ tech, Newton Gravity V  is expecting to bring us a different experience through its lightness and distinguishing techs. Therefore, it has spared no efforts in improving its techs. The core update is that the height difference between the front and the rear is only 3mm, which can help us develop right running postures.

The most distinctive part of the shoes is in the front foot where there protrude several lumps which is the P.O.P, the core tech of this brand.

The Newton Gravity V has been changed in the tongue and the change can increase the wrapping and make the shoe more comfortable and breathable. And with the insoles that are made of light foaming material which is more elastic than the double density insoles, the whole shoes are made all the more comfortable.

The only pity is that Newton shoes seems to be born for running, so they’re not the best choice for walking around.


On the strength of my testing and experiences, this Newton Gravity V is more than suitable for running especially for long-distance running. With its excellent techs and materials used, the shoes are sure to offer you a very nice and unforgettable experience.
