Altra's #1 selling road shoe is back with a fresh new look and updated mesh upper. This fan favorite keeps its integral core of Footshape™, ZeroDrop™ and amazing slip-in feel, as well as keeping the "Goldilocks-just-right" cushioning level. Abound™ compound midsole is responsive and motivating, and is perfectly balanced from front to back to encourage proper running form and a quicker turnover. Get your toes in the TORIN!
Our take: Tons of customers seeking freedom for their feet have been asking after Altra at our Grand-Avenue location. If you are new to Altra, the extra-wide toebox will be like nothing you’ve felt before, and might convince you that the shoes are too big (even when they aren’t). These shoes are “minimal” only in the sense that they are flat from heel to toe and allow your feet to splay naturally when you hit the ground. They are very cushioned. The FootPod outsole is noticeable and takes a little getting used to.
We recommend this shoe for folks with a neutral footstrike or lots of miles already logged in minimal shoes. If you are new to this type of shoe, take it slowly.
