Newton’s Action/Reaction technology uses oversized lugs to create a trampoline effect with each step. The design rewards runners who have perfected the forefoot strike. Our test team found these lightweight, breathable shoes best suited for level, light trails. At least at first. Use them initially to improve form (the 3mm drop helps), strengthen feet and calf muscles, and then try more uneven trails. Tester’s take: “Light on your foot. Nice, straight gait.” Swami gripe: Running downhill on your toes can feel like a car without brakes. Swami like: They’re like rocket boosters on ascents. 9.6 oz; $129; newtonrunning.com
