These shoes are a steal. I keep my eyes on Marathon because they always have my favorites on clearance about a year after they’re new in stores. Zero drops take some getting used to but have completely eliminated knee and hip pain (although sometimes at the expense of ankle and shin pain). I am glad I suffered through the adjustment phase and can’t see myself ever going back to unnatural support shoes. *** I hate to unfortunately update my review because after only about 6 weeks of very minimal (<50) treadmill miles the sole ripped off. I’m so bummed to have to go back to trying to find a shoe that meets all of my needs on a student budget.

Great shoe but the tongue causes blisters

I love altra and have used most of the torins. This version has an issue with the tongue and it cuts as you run. I heard it gets better but it’s definitely a flaw that needs to be corrected. Marathon Sports gets 5 stars!! They have great customer service and fast shipping. They also have a great variety of alta shoes. Most running stores only carry the lone peak, which is also a great shoe.

Torin 5

Have been wearing these shoes for a long time. Plenty of room in the toe box, good amount of cushioning yet still lightweight.

Altra Torin are the only shoes I wear.

You can’t beat the wide toe box for comfort. I have a bunion plus hammer toes so these allow my feet to wiggle in the shoe. Toe box is also deep.

Great shoe

Really like this shoe. The tongue doesn’t bother me as it does others.

Great shoe for me

Hi All- first of all I cannot believe the amount of time the Employee took with me, making sure I found the right size and right shoe for my needs. This shoe is perfect for me; it has a flat bed and she had me put an insert with it. It has helped tremendously. The Altra is so comfortable, the strain on my back has lessened. So the combination of the wonderful caring service at Marathon and the right shoe is perfection.

This is my favorite shoe..they are cushioned perfectly! Extremely comfortable for long miles! I wore these when I ran the Boston marathon!

Not as cushioned as the 4.5

These are ok but definitely not as much cushion as the Torin 4 or 4.5! Altra should have left well enough alone!
