Took part in a trial run for Newton shoes at East Coast park this morning. Newton shoes are specially designed to encourage forefoot running, which is supposed to be more efficient and reduces the risk of injury:

My test run of about 6 km was pretty good - I felt a lot less breathless and could run faster and longer with a lot less effort. Shoes were extremely light which helped too. The not so good - the shoes weren't that stable since I pronate a lot when running, so I can imagine that there might be risk of injury on long runs. Will try out the stability trainer next time, so I can compare with my current Nike Triax to see how the motion control fares.
