The brand long believed that a running shoe should not encourage a heel strike, but rather should let the body move naturally. After cutting down a running shoe heel and testing a zero-drop shoe, they saw how it reduced injury and changed several lives for the better, even bringing running back into the lives of a few who never thought it possible. Using a zero-drop platform, foot-shaped lasts and gender-specific designs, Altra Zero Drop brings a blend of barefoot freedom with shod protection.
The brand prides itself on their design of cushioned, foot-shaped minimalist running shoes that do not feature an elevated heel. This innovative platform allows for a more natural foot strike and a more efficient ride. The gender-specific toe box construction follows the natural shape of the foot, providing enhanced comfort, increased balance and stride efficiency.
Altra Zero Drop strives to bring natural running shoes to the masses and believes natural running can make a difference in people’s lives, as well as make running fun. Life is short. Run better!

Altra Zero Drop Footwear The Torin™
Very comfortable shoe. At first seems a little too cushioned, but breaks in and is now about perfect. First time with zero drop shoes and it takes some getting used to (as in your calves will be very sore), but I love the concept and can feel a difference in my foot strength. Kinda ugly though.

Amazing shoes! Love the toes space. I was expecting to make a slow transition into these shoes with my running but it wasn't necessary. Comfort for wide feet

Though I am a woman, I got these man's shoes in black, because the woman's styles are, as always, butt ugly. For any women thinking of doing the same, they feel a bit wider in the toe and heel area than the woman's version, yet do not come up higher under the ankle and in the back, which is sometimes the case with man's shoes. The premise: As a supinating mid foot striking trail runner, I tried 4mm drop shoes in the past, that caused me immense heel and midfoot pain, and "normal" running shoes hurt my knees. I've also had some horrific experiences with trail shoes in the past, that were not well cushioned and did all kinds of damage to my body, so regular barefoot running shoes are out of the question for me. After tons of research, I deducted I needed zero drop cushioned running shoes and ended up deciding between the Torrin, Hoka One Ones, and -with some reservations- the Newtons (reservations because they are not zero drop, made up by the midfoot lugs). The newer Hoka styles are not available in the US yet, and the utter ugliness of the currently aailable ones is keeping me away from them. I may try out the Rapa Nui when they get here. I bought and will probaly keep the Newtons to switch out with the Torrin, but the Torrins I am definitely keeping. The Torin: On my first run, my left shin started to hurt, but on day 2, I switched out the insoles and had no more pain. These shoes come with two pairs of insoles: stabilizing ones, which are not for my feet, so maybe useful for pronators and definitely for people who need arch support, because I could feel my arch sitting right on them, and neutral/flat ones, which I have been using since. I've had these shoes for about 2 weeks now and have hit the trails in them almost every day. They are super comfy, seem less likely to make me stumble over branches (due to a better feel for the ground?), and there is no way rocks can get stuck in the soles. I have not experienced any heel, knee or midfoot pain yet.
