Not my first pair of Altra's. Have been wearing minimal or zero drop running and work out shoes for 3 years. To consider this shoe you should be aware of zero drop. This is a good shoe for cross fitness, toe box is wide which is what Altra is known for, and does not have the enormous padding of Hoka, but more than NB. Can't go wrong with the fit and quality of Altra.

Wanted to share a positive review for the Altra Zero Drop Provision. I just completed the Vineman 70.3 in them... I also run 1/2 Marathons etc... I have found this to be a solid all around shoe. I do demand more than the average Joe who's looking for training/running shoe and this one has stood up to my expectations. I was pleasantly surprised... I'm always looking for a great neutral shoe that will offer support for longer distances but also one that is lightweight and has a smaller profile. (Sorry Hoka One, not gonna happen). I really like the feel of the Altra toe box, it allows toes to spread naturally but without the feeling of the shoe being loose. One thing to point out is that there's a small support strip over the top of the toe box, on the outside of the shoe. Not sure if it's just cosmetic or serves a function but my first impression after putting them on was that it was going to rub because you do feel it. This was not the case. I would recommend this shoe to anyone who is looking for a solid performing neutral and also for anyone kinda tired of the usual suspects. I've had good luck with the Brooks Pure Drift in the past but am not happy with their current offering. Altra could use some help on their colors for shoes but looking beyond the vanity aspects I highly recommend this shoe.

My Profile: Male 68 years old runs 8-10 miles/week at 10 min. per mile mild to moderate pronation in right foot constant Achilles tendon inflammation and calf muscle pulls in right leg casual shoe size: 10 med Nike Structure 16: Size 11 med Asics 2170 and 2000-2: Size 11 med Brooks Pure Cadence 3: Size 11 med Altra Provision 1.5: Size 10.5 med When you get to my age, equipment that is a fraction of an inch off one way or the other can result in injuries to just about every muscle and tendon in your body. For the last several years I have been plagued with tendonitis, plantar fasciitis, and pulled calf muscles more times than I can remember. I went through the above list of shoes during that period looking for ones that were designed to alleviate all those problems that are associated with pronation. When I got to the Brooks I found moderate relief. I studied the mechanics of all those shoes and found that most Nike, Asics, and New Balance running shoes have a heel that is around 12mm+ (1/2") higher than the toe. You are literally running downhill. The Brooks had a heel/toe drop (H/T drop) of only 4mm. It is a great minimalist running shoe as well. I try very hard to do a mid-foot plant while running. I carefully observed my running mechanics wearing all those shoes and realized that with a 12mm H/T drop I was forced to lean just slightly forward to be able to get past the high heel to do a mid-foot plant. That extra few degrees of leaning forward not only put excess strain on my lower back (another of my many problems) it also caused me to put too much weight on my forefoot when I pushed off. The excess weight on the forefoot was clearly the cause of the pulled calf muscles and Achilles heel inflammation. I was working that group muscles and tendons to death. I just tried on the Altra Provision 1.5 with its 0 mm H/T drop. The results are absolutely impressive. A mid-foot plant is instantaneous, easy, and natural feeling. Stability is good due to the wide toe box. And best of all, no stress on the Achilles tendon or calf muscles. The Altra is 2 oz. heavier than the Brooks Cadence 3 but it provides a more stable ride which I need because of the pronation. If stability is not an issue with you then go with the Brooks. They are so lightweight it is like running in socks. RECOMMENDATIONS TO BUYERS OF THE PROVISION 1.5 In transitioning through all the shoes in the list above I was unknowingly gradually reducing my H/T drop from 12 mm+ to 4mm to 0 mm. When I dropped from 12mm down to 4 mm I had to take it easy for several runs. (Brooks recommends you take it easy too.) I could tell that with my heel lower to the ground, I was stretching my Achilles and calf muscles out more than what I was used to. I was concerned that I would aggravate the problems that I was trying to cure. It took about 5-6 easy shorter runs for my feet to get totally used to the new lower platform. If I tried to go straight from a 12mm Nike to the 0mm Altra I am sure I might have done some damage due to excess stretching. If you are currently running in a 12mm+ H/T drop, my suggestion is when you buy the Altra also buy a pair of Dr. Scholls heel gel-pads. Put them under the Altra's inner lining. This will raise the heel to 4-5 mm. Run on that for a few times until your feet get used to the lower platform. Then take the lifts out and run on the 0mm and enjoy, enjoy, enjoy!

Just started running recently, so got myself some gear based on other customer reviews. These shoes are great, but they do run a tad small. I kept them hoping they would "stretch out" which did work a little, but I still feel it on my big toe when I run. I highly recommend getting a half size larger. Can't wait to get back out there and run!

Originally ordered size 13 my normal size but too small. The 14 is perfect. Almost everyone in the office wanted a pair so I sent in an order.
