 PRODUCT DESCRIPTION OVERVIEW

Altra Zero Drop

 

RELEASE DATE:

  •   December 2012

 

Altra shoes take a different approach to natural running. Rather than a simple zero-drop midsole and a minimalist upper, Altra shoes offer a design that's contoured to match the shape of a foot inside and out.

The Men's Torin Running Shoe builds on this with 15mm of midsole cushioning, a feature which helps to absorb impact without forcing you to sacrifice your form when you hit the road or the trail.

Inside this shoe, your toes can spread out, your heel and forefoot are equidistant from the ground, and your foot is free to move as it was meant to. The result is a platform that helps to reduce injuries so you can run more than ever.

These shoes felt good for mid to long range training runs.  But be warned that you could trip all over yourself on the first couple runs if you are not used to the zero drop running shoes!
