WHAT'S THE DEAL WITH THIS SHOE COMPANY? October 25, 2019 08:00 25 Comments

Newton Running Shoes

What's Up With Newton Running These Days?

These running shoes are here to stay! After some rocky stops and starts, Newton Running is going strong. We have 3 reasons to love this running shoe brand, and if you've never tried Newton, we suggest you stop by our store and check it out.

Where Newton Has Been

  • Remember when the natural running trends first started circa 2008? Newton helped start that trend.
  • A rocky point occurred when part of the company was purchased by a venture capitalist who wanted to make the brand mainstream. That didn't work out.
  • One of two original founders, Jerry Lee, purchased back Newton and has helped resurrect them.
  • Newton has since returned to its roots: focusing on a springy, lightweight shoe that dedicated runners revere.
 

3 Reasons to Get Your Feet in Newton

1. BREATHABLE UPPER & LIGHTWEIGHT - Newtons are designed with a roomy toebox and breathable materials. While the POP platform has a great cushioning system, the shoes are more lightweight than similar competitors.

2. POP PLATFORM - Unique to Newton running shoes, the POP platform gives that springy push-off from the midfoot. It helps quicken your cadence so you have less contact with the ground. The level platform encourages better posture while harnessing the elastic recoil of your lower legs and fascia. Meaning you're quicker off the ground, too.

3. ENCOURAGES MIDFOOT STRIKE - The POP platform is designed to cover the midsole of your foot, and so the push-off is most beneficial when runners land on the midfoot and then give a "kiss" with the heel briefly touching the ground. Keep in mind there is no right or wrong in midfoot versus heel striking when your overall form is correct (knees are over your feet from the side view for example). We recommend a StrideSmart shoe fitting at our store to check your stride.

4 REASONS TO GET YOUR FEET IN THE NEW MIZUNO WAVE RIDER 23 August 14, 2019 18:04 49 Comments

All-New Wave Rider 23 Now Available

Time for new running shoes? We've got a Mizuno you have to get your feet into!

When the newest model of Mizuno Wave Rider arrived in store, we fell in love! Here are the top four reasons to come into St. Pete Running Company and try out the Wave Rider 23.

 

Four Reasons to Get Your Feet Into Mizuno Wave Rider 23

  • SAME GREAT SOLE - So often, updates to running shoes can leave customers disappointed that what was working is no longer the same. Mizuno recognized that transitioning from one model to the next, they didn't need to fix what wasn't broken. So the same great sole from the previous model has been carried over.
  • MAGIC IN THE NEW UPPER - At the same time, Mizuno acknowledged a need to adjust some things in the shoe's upper, and they came up with a magical combo of super soft, light, and comfort that feels like an extension of your foot.
  • "LOCKED IN" - One benefit that has always been true of the Wave Rider is the "locked in" feeling you get while wearing the shoe. It's affectionately labeled the Mizuno handshake, that nice squeeze in the midsole that has made this such a popular running shoe.
  • VERSATILITY - Our staff has a variety of preferences, just like you'd expect from any group of runners. No two feet are the same, but the consensus is in. We love the new Wave Rider 23. It's a shoe that can take you long distances, but serves for the shorter runs as well. And we all agree: it feels great.

Check Out More Details About These Great Running Shoes

 

Don't just take our word for it. Come in, let us take you through our one-of-a-kind StrideSmart Shoe Fitting process, and then you can test out the shoes to see how they feel on your feet.
