After experiencing a volatile year in 2017, Newton is aiming to get back to their roots in 2018 and provide runners with the ride, fit, feel, and look that they expect from a Newton running shoe. One of the models that retained its popularity during 2017 was the Gravity 6, and designers want to give fans of the classic shoe a model that they can continue to love. With that goal in mind, the upcoming Gravity 7 features only aesthetic changes to the midsole and upper.

Midsole and Outsole

The midsole design of the Gravity 7 will feature identical technology to the Gravity 6 with some minor cosmetic changes. One change that is not seen in the images above, but will be seen on final products, is the removal of the text on the P.O.P. platform. The shoe’s performance, though, should be unchanged, giving runners the low offset design and springy ride they want.


The materials used in the Gravity 7 will be practically identical to those of the Gravity 6. Because of the popularity of the shoe, designers’ primary update was to change the color palette to one that aligns with the bright pops that fans of the original Newton models have come to love.
