Men's Kismet 5
Featuring 5 lug P.O.P. in the forefoot and Action/Reaction tech in the rear, Kismet 5 provides a low drop, supportive and very stable ride. Its extra stability comes from a higher density or firmer midsole found just forward of the heel area and extending to the metatarsal heads on the medial side. Best suited for runners who pronate, Kismet 5 has a 4.5mm drop and weighs in at 9.4 oz.
Running Niche Experience
We find the Kismet series fits true to size, but is slightly wide in the forefoot and slightly narrow in the heel. The key to a successful fit in Newton’s is the proper alignment of the P.O.P forefoot technology with the ball of your foot. Kismet 5 features the new adaptive fit engineered mesh upper which molds to the contours of your foot providing a customized fit.
Technology: Action/Reaction™ and P.O.P. Technology
The secret sauce powering the speed of Newton Running shoes is its proprietary Action/Reaction™ Technology. Generated by the active movement of the lugs, Action/Reaction Technology creates a responsive, trampoline-like cushioning system that provides quicker bounce-back and loses less energy than a traditional foam-core running shoe. P.O.P, or Point of Power, is the patented design that differentiates the shape, ride, and feel of our Action/Reaction Technology or lug system. Our shoes have three different P.O.P designations for three different rides.
Boulder, Colorado-based Newton Running promotes gait efficiency for people at all levels of the sport, from first-time 5k runners to seasoned marathoners. Newton Running’s patented Action/Reaction™ technology provides dynamic shock absorption, energy return, ground feel, minimal heel-to-toe drop, and lightweight comfort. Newton Running is committed to corporate responsibility through sustainability efforts and through the support of numerous charitable organizations and has been nationally recognized for these efforts.
