Newton Men's MV2 Triathlon Running Shoe
We all know K=1/2mv^2, so itís obvious that the best way to find energy is with the Newton Menís MV2 Racer. Oh, you didnít know that? I guess you should have paid more attention in class. Lace up pure speed with this 5.2 ounce, zero-drop racing flat. It still features Newtonís amazing Action/Reaction technology, but this lightweight shoe is built with short to mid-distance racing and weekly speed workouts. Donít worry, if zero-drop is too flat for you to handle, the MV2 comes with an optional 3mm lift, so you can get closer to the heel-to-toe drop youíre used to training in. If youíre a fleet-footed runner who loves their Newton training shoes and has been dying for something lighter to race in, get moving with the MV2.Ultra-light, highly breathable, fast-drying mesh

Newton Shoes Require an adjustment period due to the lower heel to toe ratio. This is what Newton recommends to adjust to your new shoes.
Barefoot drills. Start with 2-4 low-intensity barefoot strides, focusing on landing softly on your midfoot.
start slowly. Begin with a short run. 1 mile, no more than 2.
The 10-minute rule. Run every other day, increasing distance no more than 10 minutes each time. Rotate with your current shoes to maintain your fitness/training for at least 2 weeks.
Build your foundation. Do not introduce speed, intensity and distance until you have adjusted to the Newton Running shoes.
Why bother? Your connective tissue (muscle and tendon) and structure (the fine bones in your feet) need time to strengthen and adapt. Newtons allow your foot to feel the ground as if you were running barefoot. If you increase your running volume too quickly, you may experience calf tenderness.
Focus on form. Good Natural Running form allows you to run with greater efficiency and less injury.
