New Shoe Smell

Open the box. Peel back the tissue paper. Behold those pristine shoes. Then lift the box to your face and breathe deeply. Mmmmmmm. Smells like potential. And possibly toxins. But mostly potential.

Brand: Newton
Model: Motion Trainer
Cost: Don't Tell My Wife
First Run: 10K at 7:29 pace

Been wanting to try these for a long time. They seem like a great racing pair. Saucony is coming out with the Kinvara in May that is similar if you love these and want to save them for races. They would go well with my vibrams.

How are they? I hear they have a completely different ride/feel.

@ Adam - I'm using these for trainers. There is a specific one for racing...Motion-S I believe. I have always loved Saucony brand as well. They make a good shoe.

@ Mario - Most certainly a WTF feeling when you first put them on. But if you typically run mid to fore foot you soon adjust easily enough. I like 'em. Legs a bit tired now after wearing for 5 runs but that's just adjustment period due to being 'up front' all the time.
