These are still my favorite Altras. The 2.5 has the best fit and feel. They are ultra light, "slipper-like", and feel like you are barely wearing them. However, they give good enough cushion so you don't feel like you are running barefoot. This is the closest I have come to finding the right balance of zero-drop, foot to ground feedback, and cushion. I have run several marathons in these and sore feet have not been a major issue. The wide toe box is perfect for my wide feet and allow my toes to spread out. The negatives - don't last too long, if you are training for a marathon you won't make it through the training plan without getting a new pair. They loose their bounce relatively quickly. Also, they don't look that great when wearing casually. My wife calls them my clown shoes. I will keep buying these as long as they sell them. Beware the new Altra V3 shoe, they are not a worthy upgrade from the 2.5s, in fact they are completely different and quite terrible (heavy, clunky, no bounce, etc).

I so wanted to keep these shoes, but there were two issues. As for sizing, I wear a 5 and ordered the 5.5, which was fine. The shoe is slightly short as other reviewers have written. 1. The inside of the arch on the right shoe cut into my foot. It felt as if the shoe was too narrow, or it could have been because the arch was too high. Either way, it was only on the right shoe. I've never had this issue with any shoes. A friend of mine (male) said he had this same issue with a pair of Altra shoes he tried to buy, although older Altra shoes did not have this issue for him. 2. The heel came up too high in the back and cut into my achilles. Astra's shoe pattern didn't account for the fact that a smaller size shoe is typically for a shorter person, and the heel tab needs to be adjusted proportionally. The good news for those with larger sized feet is that the toe box is well-designed and provides enough room, even for those who need that extra space for the toes. This shoe also has decent cushioning and is light weight. I hope Altra takes feedback into consideration because I'd love to be able to wear their shoes.

This shoe is unusually short. I wear a size 5 and the 5.5 feels just a little too short to use this as a walking shoe since my toe hits the end as I take steps. I'd recommend ordering a full size up. As for the width, the toe box is wonderfully designed and wide enough for the toes to spread out. The width under the arch is also adequate unlike the Torin, which cut into the bottom of my foot. I love the lightness of the shoe and the cushioning, however, the heel notch (back) cuts into my achilles. It's simply too high. When companies resize for shoes, they often forget to adjust this part for smaller shoes, not realizing that it's likely for a shorter person. If not for this problem, I'd keep the shoes, but I have to return for this reason. I also tried the Torin, and it has the same issue, along with being too narrow in the arch on the right shoe. I hope Altra changes their patterns because I want to buy their shoes.

Bought the 2.5 Torin while my plantar fasciitis was in "full flare up". Wore the shoe - no pain. Take the shoe off - as bit of pain. Kept wearing the shoe, receiving many compliments, over the wide toe bed. Took it off and had only a tiny amount of pain. Now I wear them everyday and am completely comfortable in the shoe, on or off. Love wearing it because of the zero drop which seems to stretch my achilles tendon and has been a miracle for my plantar fasciitis!

I really wanted to like these sneakers. They have a wonderfully round, wide forefront and thick sole. I do a lot of walking and need that thick sole support. I was able to walk just a few blocks in these due to pain on the outer side of my foot. The heel goes straight down whereas I need an angled heel that reduces the stress on the foot/knee at heel strike.I thought this had a rocker bottom- it doesn't. I have a foot w/abnorm biomechanics that stresses my metatarsals more than avg. Perhaps it will work for someone else. As per reviews, I ordered 1/2 size up. This size was good but very hard to get my foot into the shoe and the laces are a bit short.

The one issue I have with these shoes is that the tongue of the left shoe is not wide enough. The laces always rub my foot raw.

This is a comfortable shoe. I am walking without the foot fatigue that normally starts in with my neuroma after about 30 minutes; I can walk for hours again. The toe box is wide but not deep, which was a problem until I took my socks off! They are totally washable. I did order up a half size.

Marvelous shoe! Fits me and feels good which is practically impossible with my foot problems. I am happy!

I just returned from a 4 week trip to France, walking on average 20,000 steps per day. This is about my 6th pair of Altras. I got the Lone Peak boot over the winter and found it really comfortable after a bad bout of Plantar Fasciitis during the fall. I had absolutely no foot pain or discomfort this trip which included museums and cobblestones in Paris to rocky trails in Brittany. I did have to size up to a 12 in the shoe altho I am comfortable in the 11 in the boot. If you are looking for minimalist, Altra has gone away from this with this shoe as there is arch support and a thick sole. It is a very different shoe from my first Lone Peaks in 2013. They are wide enough to accommodate my foot comfortably with Injinji toe socks and Correct Toes toe spacers. I do have to do an alternate lacing pattern(shown on the Altra website) on one shoe to get it tight enough around my narrow heel. I always travel with MELT Method balls to roll my feet in case I feel PF flaring up but did not have to use them at all during this trip. These shoes were perfect for my needs. They are porous, as I found when I walked on a beach in them and gathered a lot of grit in my shoes.

Great shoes. Roomy toe box and true to size.

Wanted a running shoe with a wide toe box. This shoes definitely has that. It's too wide. The front of my foot was sliding side to side a lot. Even tried tightening the laces. I knew there was no way I could wear these without getting blisters under the ball of my foot. Returned them.

Very, very comfortable. Love a toe box wide enough across the ball of the foot that does not squish my toes! I did order 1/2 size up from my usual, based on others' reviews

I have a neuroma and these are so freaking comfortable I want to buy 20 more pairs. I can finally run again without pain.

I like these and I do wear them, but they are not as stylish as they could be. I have a neuroma, so the wide toe box is perfect for me. I have no foot pain with these. I just wish they weren't so ugly.

I normally wear size 11 but it was too short, so I had to go to size 12 as they have no 11.5. I love the wide toe box, zero drop, and sole thickness. The tongue is not well padded and is uncomfortable, and the shoe is too high in the back. The size I got is a bit sloppy around my heel and mid foot, so I would never use this shoe for lateral movement. Still. It is a fine shoe for everyday wear.

Super comfortable shoes. Now that I have tried shoes with a wide toe box I don't think I can go back.

Seeing previous reviews, I got my size and the next size up. I found them very comfortable to start. When I started running with them, my toes rubbed against the front of the shoes that are my usual size. I switched to the next size up. The toe problem was solved, but I developed terrible calf cramps with every run, multiple attempts. I don't know if this was related to the "zero drop" or not, but they finally became untenable, had to send them back.

The wide toe is great. The Torin is comfortable and my second pair of the Altra brand. For some unknown reason Altra is making the toe more narrow in newer versions. The wider toe moved them ahead of the pack. The laces have also been shortened and now not long enough to tie.

I finally found my new trail running shoes! I wore Brooks Cascadia for years, but my pediatrist told me they were actually too supportive and I really needed a more neutral and flexible shoe. She recommended Nike's Free running shoe, which I found doesn't have enough protection and traction for trail running. I was so happy to find these shoes, and thrilled that the come in Women's size 12! They're the perfect balance of light cushioning and protection while letting my feet take they're natural course. I love them!

This was just the shoe I was hoping for. I had been running in the lone peak 2.0 for a while, but I also run in minimalist sandals. The lone peaks are great, but always felt a bit bulky. The superior has the advantages of a trail shoe (ie. you can run over rocks without hurting your foot, and traction) without too much weight or unnecessary bulk. It also comes with a removable rock shield insole that I will probably never use. If you need a trail shoe but are turned off by all of the big, bulky tank-like shoes out there, give this a try. Of course, it is 0 drop so will take some getting used to.

Got these for my 9 year old son as I wear Altras most of the time. He loves the fit and mentions how his toes don't hurt. Took a few days to get used to them but they're a hit.
