When these shoes first hit my radar, I really wanted to give them a try. I have high, rigid arches and while the Instincts and Torins had cushioning, the construction of the midsole and outsole made them too stiff, and I could never get comfortable in them. The One Squared is built around a lightweight, extremely flexible outsole that doesn't try to "guide" your feet and that allows for a more natural foot strike - a huge plus. That being said, I do have a few gripes with this shoe. The One Squared does have some toe spring, which isn't necessarily bad. However, the toe box tapers down toward the front of the shoe, which reduces the height of the toe box where the lift is highest. You can actually see this in the pics and in my case, it causes some annoying rubbing, especially on the tops of the big toes. Trouble is, you probably can't size up by a half size since doing so seems like it'll likely throw off the width and overall fit. Along with the lightweight outsole, there will very likely be issues with durability and while there is some hard rubber placed under the big toe, more could have been placed under the ball of the foot and in strategic places along the outside edge of the shoe to improve longevity. Lastly, the fit in the heel needs to be made more snug - I've had big trouble with heel lift in the Instincts and Torins. The One Squared is a little better by default because the outsole flexes much more and the laces don't need to be drawn up so tight to lock down the heel, but there is still room for improvement. If Altra addresses these issues with the next upgrade, they'll have a 5-Star winner in my book.

I wanted to keep these shoes so badly. They had great cushioning and gave my feet plenty of room to move comfortably, yet still keep my feet snug in the shoe. I originally bought these because they are the first Altras with a normal color. My problem was two things. The first is the bottom is very soft and I felt that after using them regularly the shoe would wear too fast. Also, the top of the shoe in the toe area is tapered to close to the shoe. Other Altras have a higher toe box which allows for easy movement. They kept rubbing against the top of my toes.
