I absolutely LOVE this shoe!
Intuition 3.5 Review:
I just started running again and was concerned for how sore I would feel after not running for 7 years. I logged 17 miles last week and feel amazing! By now my feet, hips and knees would be in so much pain. I am a huge fan and cannot wait to keep going!
Great shoe
Provision 2.5 Review:
I found these shoes post ankle & bunion surgery, I wish I had found them years ago. The wide toe box is a great concept. The shoe has good stability, I'm not running but I trot and walk and I have been very happy with them. The zero drop heel is a nice change also. The shoe is very comfortable.
Great shoe
Provision 2.5 Review:
I am post ankle ligament & tendon repair, I also had a plate put in to fuse my big toe joint.(post bunion) I was looking for a stable shoe with a wide toe box. These are perfect. I haven't been able to run in them yet but I'm well on my way now. I love the feel of the shoe, and the wide toe box , who knew? These shoes have a lot of cushion in them and are comfortable right out of the box. I'm very happy so far, I hope they hold up well. I don't mind paying good money for good shoes as long as they last. If you have wide feet or bunions, give these a try, a wider toe box is quite amazing.
Great shoes, I love these shoes.
Olympus 1.5™ Review:
I had to exchange 2 times to find correct size. Thank you onlineshoes!! They did great job on that. They are full size big to my feet, finally I got 5.5. I am wearing everyday at work. They are comfortable and make me walk more.
Not what I expected

Walking 2 miles a day, and they tend to torque

About Altra

Nearly 20 years after opening a family-operated "dream" running store, Altra's founders still felt that there was a large gap in the athletic shoes marketplace for truly biomechanically correct footwear. And so the Altra brand was born from the belief that shoes shouldn't encourage a heel strike; they should let the body move naturally.

For years, the Altra team experimented with cutting down the heels of regular running shoes to test their proprietary Zero Drop™ theory and saw incredible results with staff and customers alike. It eliminated injuries and helped people get back into running. Working with engineers, designers, elite runners and biomechanical experts, Altra started making prototypes to bring this innovative footwear to the masses. Altra's unique, Zero Drop™, foot-shaped, gender-specific designs to help everyone run naturally.

Blending cushioned protection with the benefits of barefoot freedom, Altra footwear is designed to reduce injury and promote proper technique for the most natural run. Every shoe features Zero Drop™ technology and a foot-shaped, gender-specific design so everyone can find the right fit to run better and, most importantly, healthier.
