Newtons falling apart after 120 miles

Has anyone else had a problem with the Newtons uppers?  I have a pair with about 120 miles on my Newton Gravitys and my big toe is starting to come through the top!

I sent them an email through their website, but received no response.  I wouldn't expect this kind of treatment from a small company for shoes that cost $175!

Otherwise I like the Newtons.  They are the only shoe I've been able to run a marathon distance on pavement without issues.


  •  I used to run in Newtons until recently - never had the type of issue you have described. That definitely seems like it is way too early for something like that to happen, especially for their price, as you mention.
