Here's another vote for "it felt narrower than marked". The width of the upper fabric is fine, even perfect, for my not particularly wide foot. The issue is that the foot bed is not level. The inner and outer edge of the shoe is raised by stitching and upper fabric sewn into the sole. The net effect is that my fifth metatarsal (little toe bones) rides on a ridge that is higher than the rest of the sole. The sensation of walking in these shoes is that my weight is mainly supported by my fifth metatarsal bones and the inside edge of the "ball"of my foot. Otherwise, I like the shoe. I'm sending it back.

I bought a size 10.5 in the Altra Intuition 4, green color. The laces are too short to use the top eyelet, and my heel slipped without it. I'm not going to go buy laces for a $120 pair of shoes. I love Altras, but they tend to have a lot of design flaws. They fixed the tapered toe problem in this version but then slapped on too short laces. Too bad.

These shoes make me feel like I'm walking barefoot on air. The soles are quite well padded but not in a bad way. They still have the zero drop and wide toe box you would expect from Altra. I love the way they shoes are designed to become full slippers by just bending down the back part of the heel wrap. I usually put SuperFeet insoles in my Altras for more support but, so far, I haven't needed them in this shoe so maybe that indicates they have better arch support. The only minor issue I have with them is the same issue as all the other Altra shoes - the wide toe box does make them look a bit like clown shoes, but once you get over that, these are great daily wearers.

After three pairs of Altras that eventually rubbed my heels raw, I finally figured out I needed to go a whole size up (9 to 10) to combat the heel slippage. The natural foot shape and zero drop were worth blisters, but now I'm truly in heaven. I can tighten the laces enough that my heels don't slip, there's plenty of room for my toes and my lower back and knees love the zero drop! In the past, Provision has corrected my over pronation and I expect that this pair will too. Perfect shoes for my feet!

I love love love these shoes. I work 12 hour shifts at a hospital. I have plantar fasciitis and morton's neuroma and these shoes a have wide toe box for the bad nerve, and are flexible enough to exercise the plantar muscle. They are zero drop so there may be a intro factor if you are not used to that. But I have been wearing them for a few years and bye bye foot issues. I normally wear a 10W but these are just fine due to the wide toe box. They are bright pink. I would prefer a more subdued color but fit and comfort are most important to me.

I had researched for weeks trying to find a minimalist style shoe. I had suffered a case of plantar fasciitis, and once I was finally feeling better, I felt like making the switch to a minimalist shoe was a must. These shoes are great! They have a nice, wide toe box, and they are super light. I am a size 9, and feel like they fit very true to size. I am on my feet for 10 hours a day for work, and they feel good all day.

Great shoe, maybe seems a bit shorter than some of my other Altra's as by the end of the day my toe feels like it is hitting the end of the toe box. Love Zappos customer service! Best in the industry! Many company's should take lessons and learn!

I ordered these for my husband, as all of his shoes were too narrow in the toe box. He loves them, saying they are the most comfortable shoe he has ever owned. We will now have to replace his other shoes, as once you experience the negative heel drop and wide toe box any other shoe type feels terrible. Ordering 1/2 size larger worked for him as it has with me for any Altra shoe.

I love that Altras are available through women's size 12 (my size). These boots are comfortable and do the job. The top area under the laces is a bit spongy for my taste and the highest lace holes are impossible to use, but otherwise I'm totally happy.

I was initially pleased with the new Paradigm2. It felt and ran like the Paradigm 1.5, but now less than 75 miles later, they are as worn out as my Paradigm 1.5 shoes that have over 400 miles. $130 for a pair of shoes that are worn out before 100 miles is ridiculous. I'm giving a 2 star rating only because they're the most comfortable shoes I've found for my running. I'm looking 'REAL' hard for something else though.

These shoes are some of the most comfortable right-out-of-the-box shoes I own.......and that's a LOT! These are the first Altra brand I've tried, but will definitely buy again. I bought the Raspberry and love them. Definitely a do-over.

These shoes are fantastic. Like so many running shoes, it's helpful to size up. I have issues with my feet that have been significantly aided by the zero-drop of Altra shoes and acupuncture. Marathon training is way better with a couple pairs of these!

I wore the Torin 2.0 for over a year. That was the best Altra shoe I had worn, but I like the 2.5 even better. Maybe the most comfortable Altra shoe I have owned yet (with possible exception of the Lone Peak trail runner shoes) and they fit my wide feet perfectly. I did order 1 size up vs. my usual size. These also look much better than the 2.0. Very satisfied!

I loved the first version of this shoe and wore it in my normal size, 8.5. This version requires me to buy a 9.5 for it to fit like the first version of this same shoe! This one, even at the larger size, is a bit narrower through the arch. I wish they would go back to the original style which gave me that "natural" foot strike. However, of their current shoes (I've had to try almost all of them to try to get a good fit), this is my favorite.

My podiatrist recommended these shoes for my wide feet. The heel does slip out when I walk, but a guy at a local shoe store showed me how to lace the shoes to tighten the heel area, works well. Shoes are very comfortable, doesn't have a lift in the heel so the shoes are "flat", takes a little while to get used to walking in them but when you do they feel great.

I have suffered from planar fasciitis on and off for 15 years, and I have tried every shoe on the market that claims to help. This one FINALLY did and this is my second pair. Although I have extremely narrow feet and a high arch, I love the broad toe that allows your feet to take a natural stance. I feel like my feet are stronger and I can walk for miles in these. This particular style is designed for hiking and I have used it in hilly desert areas with no slipping. I guess the one draw back is the "clown" shoe look, but I can live with that for pain free feet.

I have run in FOUR pair of these shoes...absolutely love them for long runs, short runs, boulder scrambling, hiking. I run a 50 miler and two 50k races in these shoes in addition to untold trail running miles. The perfect shoe for me. Just the right amount of cushion without sacrificing control or feel.

I ended up returning these. They are good looking. They are wide in forefoot which I love. they are zero drop which I love. They are waterproof. The issue is the height. Unless I was running on a paved trail these inspire terror of an ankle roll. I did end up rolling my ankle walking slowly down a side grass hill.

I love the Torin 2.5! Bought it for walking and general use. Previously wore New Balance and Brooks, both good shoes, but still got plantar fasciitis which I've had for many months. Decided to try Altra. Gotta be something to that zero drop in the heel because my PF does not even bother me when I wear the shoes,...and the pain is so much less (than the New Balance or Brooks) when I take my shoes off for the day. Getting ready to order another pair of Altras in a different color so I'll always have a back up! Oh, I wear an 8 in a regular shoe but always go for 8 1/2 in a sport shoe, and that worked this time for me as well.
