  • Spin Bikes only accept SPD cleats, which are mainly used on Mountain bikes and Spin Bikes. Most Road Shoes will not accept SPD cleats, so you would need to look for either Mountain Bike Shoes, Commuter Shoes or Triathlon Shoes. All Cycling Shoes…
  • Hi Lisa, from the information you have provided, I would have advised you to stick to a neutral shoe, as your only pronating slightly on one side and not all on the other. If you then run in slight support shoe or full support shoes, it will simply …
  • Brooks ST5 of Saucony Fastwitch are the best ones on the market as a Racer with slight support. A lot of runners use racing shoes not just for their races, but also for their speed training. With a so called normal shoe used to put in the milage t…
  • The Newton Momentus is a great shoe, but I simply don't think they are good enough for pure trail running up north. I use mine as a winter road running shoe with a bit of park running. For this they are perfect.  And the comment for Boulder trail …
  • Hi Sophie, sorry to hear that you broke your anke, but from the sound of it your on the way to running again.  To answer some of your questions: 1) Depending on the age and usuage of your old trainers, this could result in you suffering from blis…
  • Agree with above. It is to late to purchase a brand new pair of trainers for the London Marathon, as realistically there is not enough time to break them in for that kind of distance. You might be able to get away with it, if your purchasing the exa…
  • I think Newton are simply not a big enough company to be able to do multiple launches across the world. Although they are not the only shoe company who often launch in their home market first and a few month later launch abroad. Shops might be runn…
  • Any customer has the full right to a refund if the item is unused and in original packaging within two weeks of purchase. The retail industry seems to have the wrog refund policy engrained so much in peoples mind that everybody think this does not e…
  • Hi Sharon, I m sorry to hear that you had such a bad experience with an independent shops, especially as a lot of independent running stores tend to be very good in the customer service and offerings, it is what makes them different from many chain…
  • Ordered one from Sigma Sport and arrived two days later. Although as above Cruel Fate has given me a cold with viral meningitas as an after effect. So its been looking pretty sitting on my desk at work. Three weeks to look at and then I will test it…
  • Wearing the wrong type of trainer can cause serious long term injuries, such as knee probems, shin splints, arch injury; the list goes on. To often runners are recommended the wrong pair of trainers for their needs. As most people are saying, I woul…
  • Not disagreeing with it, but I m just saying that getting into proving who is who in domain names is rather off-topic. The original topic was: Has anyone got or would they recommend the Vibram 5 finger Bikila running shoes? Are they more comforta…
  • Seems this topic is going off-topic.
  • Minimal Running Shoes are nothing new, it is in a sense something old re-created. Before Nike put cushioning into shoes we all ran in plimsole style shoes. I m not saying that Vibram Fivefingers will result in you being injury free for the rest of…
  • Injinji do Compression Socks - Injinji Compression  Injinji Socks will always make your normal trainers feel a bit tighter in the toe box, as your toes are more spaced out due the fabrics in between your toes. But they are probably one of the most…
  • I run in Bikila around 40km a week and being doing this for the past 6months now, and before that been doing most of my gym training in Bikilas as well, including climbing up Table Mountain in Vibram Sprints. So in short I am massive fan of these. …
  • Hoka shoes are quite interesting in the fact that they although they have mass amount of cushioning, they are still zero drop shoes. What what I hear that the Hoka are very popular with the older generation in the USA, simply because there cushionin…
  • Slight weight difference to V1, and heel to toe drop is less as well. Change is not massive, and it won't feel like a running barefoot.  p.s. no new 1080 coming out in 201, the current V2 is staying until SS13. 
  • Gridtype A4 is generally designed for up to 10km, but if you have excellent running technique you can run a marathon in these as well. It all depends on your running style and ability. If your a newbie for example for long distance running, and only…
  • Hi, have to ask if your HRM (Garmin) belt is linked to an old version of a watch, that still has an analougue signal? The reason why I m asking, is that only HRM watches that come with a HR Belt which have an analogue signal can travel through wat…
  • Thinking in hindsight, if youhave wide feet, the MV2 might have issues with its lasting abilities as the mesh on top get stretched to much. Have had a another customer mention the same problem. It seems MV2, same as a lot of the Saucony Racers are b…
  • The main difference between Trail Shoes and Road Shoes is the cushioning, with trail shoes on average having a much stiffer cushioning sole. I know a lot who run in trail shoe on the road, although if you are doing high milage training I would recom…
  • Havnt had any durability issue with my Newtons, although it will depend on your own running style of course. Newton themselves say that their shoes last as long as any other trainer brand on the market.
  • Have a look at Fuelbelt, they make some fantastic water bottle belts and come in various different sizes. You can either get them online, or many triathlon shops carry them.
  • I m not a believer that racers should not be used for high milage training.  Newton MVs should last the same amount of miles as their Distancia for example, but of course milage is all relative as it tends to depend on once own running ability.  I …
  • I would not be able to recommend a shoe just on the information provided. With the amount of milage you will run for training, you want a high-milage trainer. If you provide me some more information on current trainer, running style, injury history …
  • If they have developed a hole in the side after two weeks already then they would be covered by the manufacturers gurantee, although this is the first time I have heard of hole in the side of the MV2, so it might just be a one-off.  Distance Racers…
  • No problem at all. But again, do try them on for size first. Or order two sizes and then send one back.  p.s. if you based in London, and Sweatshop doesn't have them or can't get them in, then I can recommend you a place where you can get them fro…
  • Newton Pricing initially seems high, but in comparison, most high-end trainers are around the 120Pounds benchmark, with some of ASICS and Saucony trainers retailing for around 135Pounds.  A lot of running shops offer 10% discount if you belong to a…
  • The Gravity is a great shoe, although for Winter Running I would either use the Sir Issacs, as the lugs underneath give you a better widder grip, or if you are just running on muddy trails, and you want the Newtons to last long, then I would look at…
