The Good

breathable upper comfortable midsole

The Bad


The Altra Torin has gone through many iterations over the past couple of models, so I was excited to check this one out and see what they had upgraded. All Altras are zero drop but this still has some arch support built into it. This is a max cushion shoe, high mileage shoe. Stack height is around 28 mm and weighs 9 oz. which is pretty light for that much cushioning. The Ego Max midsole which is a pretty light, soft midsole on the shoe. Similar to the Paradigm, I don’t know if I got all of the return I wanted from the midsole, but there was definitely a lot of cushioning through the run.The fit was true to size for me. It is wide which is not always my favorite because I lose some control in the shoe, but the lacing system allowed for a pretty decent midfoot lockdown so that I didn’t have any heel slip or moving around in the shoe during my run. I would use this shoe for easier days and longer runs, I don’t think I would grab it for workouts (mainly because of the width and responsiveness).

MSRP $150.00
