Great shoe for cross training, though not as great as the previous Provisioness. Much higher cushion in the sole, and less support in the arch means this version is not an improvement on its predecessor.

I was attracted to these shoes by their unusual and distinct styling. However, what really keeps me wearing them is the arch support and their extreme comfort. My feet are loving them!

Update to my previous review 12/3/14. I've been wearing these for about 8 months now and they're still perfect! Zero foot, ankle, knee, or hip pain. I have a long list of severe issues with my feet that cannot be fixed. Except with these shoes! I was wearing them to work only, but now I wear them everywhere. They're not beautiful or stylish, but I don't care. I love them. I just ordered 2 more pairs because I'm afraid they might be discontinued someday.

So soft and comfortable. I was skeptical of the cushioned zero drop since I have been running in zero drop extremely minimal shoes for a few years now and I didn't think I would like the feel. I LOVE IT! I have had a lot of foot pain in the last several months, so I switched, and after the first 50 miles in my Altras, the pain is gone.

Best Provsioness yet! I bought my regular running shoe size and it fits great. The heel is a little lose in these and sometimes slips a bit. These shoes are super comfortable and offer great stability. No orthotics needed in this shoe. They are light weight and easy to run in. The wide toe box is awesome. I like the color combinations on these too. Great Shoe!

The Provisioness 2.0 is my 3rd pair of Altras. They have been my favorite so far. They were insanely comfortable right out of the box. True to size and no breaking in needed! I love them so much that I'm going to order a 2nd pair to have on hand after current Altras need replacing. Hope they continue to carry this particular shoe. I've had Morton's Neuroma in both feet and the roomy toe box is what allowed healing to take place. Also, I use Montrail inserts for arch support as I've always needed extra support for my arches. You can't go wrong with these Altras!

Awesome shoes! Extremely comfortable. Gives you the zero drop running feel but still cushioned unlike other zero drop shoes. Bought and returned 3 different brands before trying and loving these.

Update to previous review: I wore these for work 35 hours a week, on my feet on concrete all day for over a year, and they have held up beautifully. Other than being broken in, they're still in excellent condition. No more PF pain, no heel pain, no leg, hip or back pain. I would have gladly paid 3 times what I paid for these. I just bought some for my severely over pronating daughter to wear as her everyday athletic shoe for color guard practices. I can not recommend these highly enough. A+ for support, stability, breathability, and cushioning. The only drawback is that they have so much sole and such a roomy toe box that they're pretty unfashionable. I don't think they're ugly, but they're not a good looking shoe. (Honestly, when your feet hurt, you start to care a lot less about the look of the shoe as long as it feels good.) Anyone looking for a reliable stability and cushioning shoe should definitely give these a spin.

Another excellent shoe from Altra. Over years of running, both on road and off, I've tried most brands of shoes, including Nike, Adidas, New Balance, Brooks, Asics and Saucony. For years, I was a Saucony guy. Then I tried Hokas for ultras. I liked the cushioning concept but found the narrow toe boxes to destroy my feet over longer mileage. Then I discovered Altras. They look a bit funny, but I loved the wide toe box concept. And it works. Even better, although the first generation Altras were a bit clunky in terms of materials and craftsmanship, the newer models are top notch. The Paradigm 1.5 is an awesome shoe for the road runner seeking a wide toe box and maximal cushioning. Unlike, my first generation Altra Olympus trail runners, the cushioning is a bit firmer on the Paradigm. While the softer cushioning works well on the trails, where it allows the sole to conform to rocks and uneven terrain, the slightly firmer ride of the Paradigm 1.5 works well on firmer, more even surfaces. In short, with the new Altras, I feel like I've found my shoes. That said, I wear Altras a half size larger than what I wear in most other running shoes, as Altras tend to run about a half size smaller than most other brands. Trust me, try them.

Improved toe box from the Olympus1. Much roomier. The additional 2mm of tread also helps. Wish they would create more neutral colors. I feel like a walking Halloween with the black and orange.

Altra, where have you been all my life? After running in famous name brand shoes for 30+ yrs., I developed Mortons Neuroma. I have not been able to walk or run for over 9 months. I ordered these for comfort in the toe box and what a relief. If and when I'm able to get back to running, I am now a fan for life. Normally a 9.5, I ordered a 10 and they fit great, roomy and comfortable and don't squish my toes. Why have I never heard of these before? Altra is now my brand for life.

I have had several pairs of Altras. They are quite comfortable (I am a neutral runner) with a broad toe box that makes them suitable for varying paces and even as walking around shoes. Unhappily, I have found the quality uneven even in lightly used shoes. The cushioning felt flat after a few months and rear seams started coming apart. I also run on Hokas and Innov8s and have not had similar problems. If you buy them go with Zappos, the manufacturer only offers 30 days.

I love the squishy soles, the tread, the wide toe box, but as per other reviewers, I noticed these run shorter, so I ordered 1/2 size larger. Still wasn't long enough. I'm going to have to try a full size longer. Wish they sold wide shoes. D's just aren't quite wide enough for my feet.

Nicer than expected after reading reviews, still getting used to. The color combination is rather primitive. Changed the laces to blue to brighten up the look a bit.

I will keep it short. These are currently my favorite shoes in the rotation. I ran a trail half with lots of vert - the feet felt great. This weekend I will be doing a 30K in them. They have just the right amount of cushion, flexibility, and tons of grip. I will be buying another pair.

I kept these because they are lightweight and fit wide in the toe box. I ran with these on the road today for about an hour and they were good. They fit a little loose in the heel but I didn't think about it much while running. I plan on testing them out on the trail next!

The customer service from Zappos is amazing! Had trouble with the first pair I bought, and Zappos took care of it quickly and with a great sense of caring and humor! I love the Altra drop zero shoe for running and working out in the gym.

This is my second pair of Altras. I went from the Torin 1.5 to this without trying it on and I am so very happy with my selection! These have a little less cushion which is fine. I tend to fun in both Nike Free Run and Altra. This shoe and company get two of my thumbs up!

I will start of by saying that Altra makes some amazing shoes. They are made really well and hold up to wear and tear. Their problem is their sizing. None of their shoes fit correctly in the length. I have a pair of the Olympus in 9.5 and they are too small. Got them in a size 10 and my feet are swimming in them. Then I buy these in a 10 and my toes and pressed up against the front. Making them completely unwearable.

Altra Zero Drop are the best shoes being made today. They allow feet to remain in a neutral position instead of having increased pressure on heels or, more commonly, toes & balls of feet. Extremely well made & comfortable. I would recommend these to anyone who walks on their feet.

I loved the Torin 1.5 shoe so I tried these Torin 2.0 shoes. I'm not happy with them and they are going back. The 2.0 is just a little bit narrower in the forefoot than the Torin 1.5. I have wide feet and this made the Torin 2.0 too narrow for my comfort. It also seems to me that the insole is flatter and has less arch support. I want the Altra Torin 1.5's to come back.
