    "I am not a runner but I use these shoes for daily use/hiking/exercise. My first superior was the 1.5 which I liked. I just got the 3.5 and the fit is very good for me... very comfortable. I still find ordering a 1/2 size larger works best for me in the Superior."

  • Best Altra to date

    "The Torin 3.0 might be the perfect shoe. It has plenty of cushion without being squishy. The upper is breathable and conforms to your foot. The ankle cut outs prevent ankle chaffage and the updated FootPod really allows the shoe to flex with your feet. I love everything about these shoes. They fit true to size and should last for quite a while."

Altra Running Shoes

Altra Running quickly established itself as a leader in the zero-drop show category and took the lead amongst the best trail running shoes for distance runners. The term zero-drop means there is a zero measured drop from the heel cushioning to the forefoot. Traditional running shoes often used a 2-1 ratio, meaning that if they had 24mm in the heel they would have 12mm in the forefoot. Other shoes can have a range from 2mm to a 12mm drop. All Altra shoes, regardless of cushioning level, have a balanced ZeroDrop platform to promote a more even and less harsh bent knee landing.

Altra Running is leading the way in helping runners to avoid injury by educating on efficient, low-impact running techniques to employ while wearing any running shoe.
