My first thought when I tried these Altra shoes for the first time was comfort!
The first time I took these shoe I tightened the skulls violently but never got the foot to sit. Eventually, I realized that experience with other running shoes had to be set aside. There is no need to tighten the skulls more than normal to Altra to sit well around the ankle and to the toe box. It's the formidable toe box that gives an impression that "everything" is resolved. After some use of free-flowing toes, these shoes became very comfortable where everything is resilient and soft. The shoe has no drop, a thin sole with a little pattern and I thought there was too little response in the sole. But a great comfort!
I was considering buying a pair of other Altra with a thicker sole, but the response in the sole of this model was so small that I would rather prioritize spending money on other types of shoes.
I also use them as leisure shoes (lovely).
My size: US 10
