shoes run short
I would buy this product again
could wear these everyday
These shoes were recommended by my podiatrist. The color (pinkish purple) is okay at my workplace but others might need a more conservative color for non-running wear.
I wear a size 8/8.5 in shoes but currently have a size 10 AND a size 10.5 in the Torins. I wear the larger (10.5) size with my orthotics and the size 10 with the more supportive insole.
I just wish Altra made leather shoes in this design!
Best Trail Running Shoe Ever!
Lone Peak 1.5 Review:
This shoe with zero drop so your foot assumes its natural position, lessens stress
and gives me more endurance. They are shaped to the foot with wonderful room in the front and excellent support! I like the orange and they also offer teal. I love them!
K the walker
I'm a walker and never thot I could wear a low heeled athletic shoe - need the elevation for support.
Have a painful neuroma now and this helps keep the weight off the front of my foot and it's sooo comfortable. I'm walkin' again!
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.
