2012 Triathlete Buyer’s Guide: Running Shoes

Newton MV2 $125

The Newton MV2 brings new meaning to the term “racing flats.” The shoe is, in fact, flat, with zero drop from heel to toe. This feature, along with the unique Action/Reaction Technology found in every Newton shoe encourages the wearer to adopt a “natural” mid- or forefoot ground-contacting style. The sole is exceptionally flexible in all directions and provides almost no support, forcing the foot to grow stronger by supporting itself. Newtonrunning.com
