Compare with Paradigm
Love Altra shoes and wanted to try these compared with my Paradigm (and Torin) models. Paradigm mulch more cushioned. Had to return.

Great Shoe and Website Service
Good walking shoe.
Go to everyday trainer
First time in a zero drop shoe, was expecting a lot of strain on my feet and lower leg but with the cushioning underfoot and the general design the shoe runs seemlessly with my form. It feel incredibly natural. The upper and the tongue are extremely comfortable for putting in miles. Fairly responsive and surprisingly fast for the amount of material underfoot. 100 miles in and the ride is still soft and still fast. Great shoe would definitely reccomend!
F&$% YEAH (Staff Review)
First off I love a lower drop shoe, so if you like the higher ups this review is not for you. As far as I am concerned Altra has been able to take that little bit of stiffness from the Torin and mix it with the incredibly versatile Ego foam. Why is it called Ego, because it may be the best there is and they know it. This shoe gives you the cushion you need for slower runs and the bounce you need for some long distance speed work. Are there better options to run 100 meters or that 15 mile long run? Sure, but this is for that 1KM tempo repeats that you gotta do up to 6 times and then can turn around and run an easy 8 in about 24 hours. The toe box is smaller this time around, but lets be honest it is still bigger than most, and the outsole still tracks with the bones of the feet so you get a great natural stride. Only caveat is that it is a little loose around tight turns, but this isn't the shoe you want to wear for ultimate or outrunning the cops (this is why I knocked it down a point in the fit category). BTW I'm on my second pair.
