This is first pair of Altra's for me and I want to buy another pair. I love big toe box and zero drop (more natural like feel). I can't compare 2s to previous models, so for me Instint 2 is a perfect running shoe.

Great shoe. Light, flat sole and roomy toe box. It really fits the natural shape and the human feet. Money well spent. The shape is really a break through. No one has pointy toes, so why are other shoe manufacturer create a pointy toe box? train your feet muscles and arch and you will be less in need for arch support. This shoe is natural - no pronounced arch support. order half size larger. I usually wear 11 and 11.5 would have fit me better. That's my lesson for the next pair. I hope those will still be manufactured when I'll buy the next pair because I will definitely go for those!

The most comfortable shoes I have ever worn, but buy at least a half size larger than usual. I hope they last a long time.

I usually wear 7, get a 7.5 in these and they were almost too short. Roomy at the toe. I don't run but these are very comfortable for standing long hours at work. I have Morton's neuroma and can get through a 12-hour shift with no pain with these. Uglier than they look in the picture. Like ugly little pillows for your feet.
