I purchased these for mostly walking. They are comfortable and they take a little getting used to. I finally went for a run in them and really enjoyed how they worked (they really work your calves). They look like clown shoes, but I would recommend them for comfort.

My son loves these shoes. Recommended by physical therapist. They are wide and true to size. Excellent service from Zappos returning one pair. Highly recommend.

Great running shoes for those of us with wider than average feet. I wear a 12 4E with most brands, but was able to comfortable fit into the standard width size. I owned the original Instinct 1.5's and had issues with the mesh ripping. Altra addressed that issue in the 2.0's and they've held up so far.

I'd also recommend: New Balance & Allen Edmonds

These lightweight, very comfortable running shoes have helped me get over a nearly debilitating bout of plantar fasciitis. They look sort of nerd cool, lace up a little strangely, and feel great.

I'd also recommend: Spenco insoles

I just finished my first marathon in these. I have bad knees and wide feet and have not been able to run distance until I got these shoes. I have always liked the zero drop and wide toe box in Altras, but the cushion was lacking. I also tried the Torin 1.5 which is supposed to have more cushion than the Instinct2 but they are too hard. The soft cushion of the Instinct 2 is exactly what I have needed. Not good for trail running, but any kind of distance on the road and they are awesome. I even qualified for Boston.
