Who is Newton Running?

Newton Running’s Mission is to be the world’s leader in natural running shoe technology and form. Maybe this is why they are founded under the man’s name who stated, “For every action, there is an equal and opposite reaction.”

Sir Isaac Newton’s third law means that in every interaction, there is a pair of forces acting on the two interacting objects. The size of the forces on the first object equals the size of the force on the second object. The direction of the force on the first object is opposite to the direction of the force on the second object. Forces always come in pairs – equal and opposite action-reaction force pairs. 

This theory could be why Newton Running developed their patented Action/Reaction™ technology providing dynamic shock absorption, energy return, ground feel, minimal heel-to-toe drop, and lightweight comfort. Newton’s patented technology and the company as a whole is based on three founding principles: 

They love runners.

Newton loves running. They eat, dream and sleep running. Marathons, ultramarathons, 5Ks, triathlons, trail runs, group runs, track workouts – you name it, they are there.  

They love teaching.

They love helping people who want to improve their running form, efficiency and performance. They recommend several small run technique tips that can unlock big improvements, and compliment the Newton ride.  

They want to make a difference.

Newton Running believes strongly in the adage “To whom much is given, much is required.” Newton is proud to sponsor several local organizations and charities including Soles 4 Souls, Trickle Up, and One World Running

Newton Running Styles at TRWS

Newton Fate 6 – Neutral  

Newton Fate

Brand new to the RWS family, the Newton Fate 6 is a responsive and lightweight trainer that is packed full of unique technologies that separate it from any other product we carry. The most notable feature unique to Newton is the Action/Reaction membrane in the forefoot, which is a set of 5 lugs that create a “trampoline-like” cushioning system for quicker bounce-back and minimal energy loss as compared to a traditional foam running shoe. The membranes are tuned specifically by gender, as well as the men and women’s Fate having unique lasts. The Fate 6 features a seamless 3-D Air Mesh upper with a moderately padded tongue and heel counter, and is plush when compared to previous models. The low offset combined with responsive cushioning make the Fate a fantastic pull for customers that enjoy shoes like the Saucony Kinvara, Altra Escalante, and On Cloudflow. 

Main Talking Points:

  • Action/Reaction membrane provides an underfoot sensation truly unique to Newton
  • Gender-specific lasts and membranes tune the ride specifically to the wearer
  • Mesh upper combined with padded tongue and heel collar ensures a secure and 
  • comfortable lockdown
  • Low-drop construction enables a natural gait cycle 
  • Price: $140
  • Weight: 8.8oz Men / 7.2oz Women
  • 4.5mm offset 

Newton Kismet 6 – Guidance 

The Newton Kismet is a sister shoe to the Newton Fate, featuring the same technologies as the Fate, but with an added dual-density medial support for the overpronator. The same webbed Action/Reaction membrane is seen in the forefoot, giving the Kismet a trampoline-like ride that is reminiscent of the Fate, but with an added splash of stability. Also brought over from the Fate are the gender-specific tuned membrane and last. The Newton Kismet is best pulled for people seeking a stability shoe that is lightweight and nimble, and is comparable to the Brooks Ravenna. 

Main Talking Points:

  • Gender-specific last and tuning for a personalized ride
  • The same Action/Reaction membrane as the Fate, unique to Newton 
  • Lightest-weight stability shoe at TRWS
  • Low-drop enables a more natural gait cycle
  • Price: $140
  • Weight: 9.2oz Men / 7.8oz Women
  • 4.5mm offset 

Products That Help


Orthotics support the arch preventing pronation and allowing the plantar fascia to rest. We have several great over the counter options between $40-55 and come with 100 day satisfaction guarantee!


The Strassburg Sock has been around for a long time because it is effective. At night your foot goes into the fetal position and the plantar fascia becomes tight. When you get up in the morning you step on your foot, stretching the plantar fascia and causing micro tears. This sock keeps your foot in a flexed position not allowing the plantar fascia to get tight.


The compression bands lift the plantar fascia and increase blood flow. This product is one of our most popular remedies for plantar fasciitis as it can be worn day or night and can help with relief.


This is another popular item in price and functionality. Rolling the arch with the Foot Rubz product helps loosen the plantar fascia and feels incredible. You can throw it in the freezer and roll a cold Foot Rubz to help with inflammation.


The foam roller is a great way to relax the calf muscle. Most people do not realize the the majority of plantar fasciitis cases we see are due to a tight calf muscle. Come in and ask us about the foam roller for plantar fasciitis – we will take you through several exercises that you can do with the device to help your calf muscles and stop plantar fasciitis in its tracks.


This is one you can do at home for free! It is important to make sure you are stretching your calf muscle several times a day while you treat your plantar fasciitis. Very rarely is there something that is cheap and easy that can have such a big impact on your health.


The Addaday stick is a great option for those who travel, or have difficulty getting on the ground to utilize the foam roller. Again, this device helps by rolling the calf muscle.

Advice That Helps

Dr PeteKC North Spine and Joint North
Have footwear that has enough support for your individual foot arch. You could have too little arch support or even too much arch support. It varies from person to person.
Dr LaurenKC North Spine and Joint
Long hours standing along with hard surfaces like concrete build tension in your calves and feet and can lead to plantar fasciitis symptoms. Make sure to wear supportive shoes in these circumstances.
Dr JustinKC North Spine And Joint
If you’ve started using a “standing desk” option at work, then be sure to get a soft mat to stand on to avoid developing or aggravating plantar fasciitis.
Dr JordanKC North Spine And Joint
Leave your sheets untucked at night, or at least with some slack. This helps keep your feet in a more “neutral” position and will help avoid tension and aggravated plantar fasciitis symptoms on the bottom of your foot when you get out of bed.
