Latest Altra customer reviews
Great shoes with questionable durability
Lone Peak 1.5 Review:
These shoes make minimalist running feel comfortable and natural. When I first put them on, they felt a little too big, but that's just the roomy footbox. You get used to it rather quickly. They mostly just feel like a pair of cozy slippers I can wear while running! One downside is that they do not seem all that durable - the insoles both broke to shreds after only 5 half-hour runs (and I am a 110lb woman, not a lead-footed behemoth), and the outer shell doesn't feel all that sturdy.
Love Altra shoes!

Intuition 2 Review:
I walk dogs everyday, this is my second pair of Intuitions, comfortable from the start, like walking in slippers only more support. Nice and light weight, and very easy to keep clean- throw them in the wash machine, come out looking like new!
Ultra Repetition
Repetition Review:
So far very comfortable. I've only had them for a week now so I will see how they last!
Torin 1.5 Review:
A good shoe for walking. Wide toe box may take getting used to. They run a bit big.

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.
