Best Newton Running shoes for Men with average builds

The Boulder-based Newton first exploded on the scene as a brand offering a more natural way to run: the trademark luggs on the forefront of the shoe puts a runner on their toe, thus softening a stride's impact and minimizing the usual blow to a runner's knees. Newton remains extremely popular in the triathlon scene, both in the US and around the world.

Having an average build has its advantages: you can fit in most clothes, fly most airplanes, and ride most roller coasters. Running shoes are no different. Some shoes are meant for lighter runners; some for heavier runners. Average build runners can fit in the large bell shape curve in between. But just like it's important to understand your build, it's also important to understand what shoe you need. That's why the following sneakers are meant for runners who are neither heavy nor skinny.
