Product details

The Motion V is ideal for high mileage endurance training and racing. The most exciting feature of the shoe is that it means that the user no longer has to compromise speed for comfort and stability. The Motion V features Newton’s EMB (extended medial bridge) platform which offers more functional support for runners with medial side pronation or a flatter arch. The shoe takes a lightweight, more breathable mesh upper and a new 4-way stretch mesh metatarsal panel. It is a shoe for everyone to enjoy and share their passion with.  Users with different foot problems especially appreciate how this shoe can look after their feet and they can have great fun of running and walking long distance again.

Size and fit

The shoe is true to size. Some users are in between sizes and find it fits well to go up to the next 1/2 size. Users find the toe box design is great for the right amount of space in the front foot.

Outsole/ Midsole

The Motion V is not just light but also durable, thanks to its. S.H.A.R.C.(super high abrasion rubber compound) outsole composite.

The secret to boost your running economy, the Action/Reaction Technology deployed in the midfoot absorbs shock and releases energy in the toes. To enhance its excellent cushioning underfoot, the shoe uses high-rebound EVA midsole to ensure the cushioning last longer through the life of the shoe.

The well-known POP1 technology, with prominent, powerful lugs and square corners deliver a super responsive, performance ride. Some users who were not convinced by the lugs at the first sight, shared that they feel natural and that it provides a solid mid foot contact point and a natural bounce to each stride.


The shoe uses highly-breathable mesh to keep the feet stay cool and avoid swelling after long runs. It is so lightweight and comfortable that users feel it fits like a plush sock! The very-needed flexibility also enables the feet to stretch better and cope well with different road surfaces. Another highlight is the updated tongue. The new tongue features a radial band to keep it in place and extra comfort from the new foam backing. Users are quite happy with the padding, and the fact that it stays in place and does not slip down during the run!
