Altra does it again
Intuition™ 3 Review:
Another foot-friendly shoe from Altra.
addendum to my previous post
Torin 1.5 Review:
Altra does make trail runners with better traction. But these Torin's which I had used to hike in are horrible, almost dangerous due to lack of traction. I have to stay on the road with these shoes. However as mentioned before, the fit is great for my wide feet.
great fit
Torin 1.5 Review:
The fit of Altra's is perfect for my wide foot. I like to be able to splay my toes and need a roomy toebox. The only downside to these shoes is off-road, the traction is nil and I've slipped several times on inclines/declines. Wish they would make soles with traction.
Don't judge a book by its cover
Olympus Review:
After having a bunion surgery,I needed a comfortable shoe to wear back to work. I must say this shoe is SUPER and also, the speedy delivery helped me with the transition! As a nurse educator, those days are spent on my feet walking to the various units that I serve. The bottom line, the shoe has really been a blessing, I feel great when I am walking and if I have to jog a little I feel great! I walk my dog in the mornings and on the weekend, where in the shoe has made it much more enjoyable for me!
2.0 is a good shoe
Instinct 2 Review:
feels comfortable on the racquetball court.

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.
