I got my Torin 1.5s as a requested birthday present from my wife. They fit better than I thought they would with me having a high arch and narrow, flat foot. While they are wide in the toe box, the rest of they fit my narrow foot well. I'm a neutral runner who is just now realizing the benefits of zero drop shoes. I'm working my way into them but having put up 13 miles in them, and I'm thrilled. They aren't as light as the Altra One2 but are made to be more substantial for longer distances from what I can tell. My feet absolutely LOVE these shoes! My toes have room to spread out but they don't move round. The cushioning is slightly firm but perfect for longer distances. As for performance, this is a great high mileage trainer or marathon+ distance shoe. As for the zero drop design, do yourself a favor and make sure your cadence is high. (The faster your steps, the less impact they have on your body and the more efficiently you run.) I would also advise that people moving to zero drop shoes do it gradually. For me it's a better, faster, more efficient way to run but you can't switch from 8+mm shoes to zero drop instantly. Altra has some great suggestions on form, cadence and transition on their website. Overall they make quality shoes and the Torin 1.5 is no different.

These are the most comfortable running shoes I have ever owned. I have put about 40 miles in so far and I am not looking back. I love the zero drop and room for my toes. They help me focus on good form without making me feel like someone is hammering my forefoot like some minimalists I've tried. Awesome shoe.

I love the Altra Zero Drop. I don't think I will ever go back to a raised heel again. The wide spread of the toe box reduces pain I have in less spacious shoes, too.

These shoes are awesome. I grew up a sprinter so I tend to run on my toes. The zero drop keeps me more flat footed and striking the ground very softly. They have a great feel to the ground and have perfect support. They may look a little strange but they are by far the most comfortable running shoes I have ever owned.

I'd also recommend: Newton

These shoes have eliminated heel pain for me. I am a 59 year old woman, that has learned men's shoes are not only cheaper, but they fit older feet better. I love these shoes and they have walked all over Disney World with no foot pain!
