Great shoes
Torin™ Review:
Very comfortable to walk or run, lots of cushioning.
killer shoe
The One2™ Review:
great shoe for tempo runs or short efforts. probably go upto a half marathon in these... maybe even a full if it's all on roads. love the wide toebox and responsive cushioning.
Great shoe
Torin 1.5 Review:
These are one of the best running shoes I have ever worn. I just converted over to the zero heel to toe drop. I feel like this type of shoe provides enough comfort and support without going overboard on the density and height of the sole. I am 6' tall, weigh 220 lbs. and have an athletic build. I am flat footed and these are the first shoes that don't irritate my ankle area. FYI - I ordered a 1/2 size bigger shoe than I normally would wear. Lastly, I had a great experience buying shoes from Onlineshoes.
Too Small
Olympus Review:
I normally wear a 10 in a running shoe but when ordering, the website stated the shoes ran a little big and recommended I get a 9.5. When I received them and tried them on, they felt more like a 9 than a 9.5. These shoes tend to run small. Other than that, they seem fairly comfortable and supportive.
Fantastic shoes!
Torin™ Review:
I wear these shoes all the time. The cushion helps my bad knee and I'm still able to wear a flat, zero-drop shoe (which I like best). Altra's are designed for the natural shape of the foot. The wide toe box allows your toes to spread out. I started running a long time ago so I've seen the evolution of running shoes over the years. These are the best shoes I've ever owned.

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.
