Intuition 3.5 Review:
I am so impressed with this shoe! It's cushioned AND it's light weight! Perfection. The toe box is wide and makes my toes so happy. The cushioning is perfect for the long run and the light weight is perfect for the speed workout. I'd say it's perfect for just about any kind of run.
Very comfortable. Feels like walking on air. Ilov

So happy to find this t-shoe!!!
Olympus 1.5™ Review:
An extra pr. of shoelaces would have been nice. The ones with shoe feel kind of like ribbon---and string thru loops. Hope nothing tears...so far, so good!
Love them

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.
