For a Christmas present this year I was given a pair of the Newton running shoes. These running shoes have what are called lugs under the forefoot that are claimed to help improve the running technique or running form. Not quite sure what to think about them yet, I went for one short run today and I wouldn’t say I like them but I also would not say that I did not like them. I will say they are unusual. There have been done some research on these lugs which is what picked up my interest. I guess I will just add the shoes into my running shoe rotation and do a few more shorter runs on them before trying anything longer.
