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.

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!

I tried Altra without ever having put on a pair of them because I was having trouble with my left foot going to sleep! I walk 4.5 miles up some very tough hills so the large toe box was appealing! I've had a piece of that foot cut off up by the toe area! For me it was love at first walk! I will use Altra and Zappos every time from now on! Call them and get free next day air! Great shoe even better service!

My feet were a little sore the first week but I love the Torin 1.5 shoe. I am a walker and put about 20 miles a week in them. The Zero Drop really made a comfortable change from old elevated heel shoes. The extra forefoot room is also very comfortable. I would like to try some of the other Altra shoes but the colors are a little loud for an old conservative individual.

I finally gave into trying the men's size shoe, since the women's Torin 1.5 didn't work for my foot. Unfortunately, the smallest men's size is a 7 which wound up being quite large on my foot. These seem very comfortable and I really like the toebox which allows for movement and comfort. Wish they worked, but will have to go back.

First time buyer and am very pleased. I will trust this company again. The shoes fit perfectly and are very comfortable even during long runs.

Altra was unknown to me before I bought my new shoes from Zappos. With the Zero Drop technology I think I have found my new favorite shoe. I have known for quite a while that I had a mid foot strike when running but was unaware that there were shoes made specifically for my running style. The fit is odd with all the extra room in the toe box but I am starting to adjust and get familiar with my 'different fitting' shoes. I finished a nine mile training run yesterday with no problem other than my calves hurting. I don't know if that was the zero drop that caused that or me playing around with the Chi Running technique I antsy got introduced to.

Mixed Review: I loved these shoes after one month that I ordered another pair (very wide toe, comfortable, zero drop for good feel on trail). I trail run once a week. However, after two months, the rubber on the toe and sides of shoe was peeling away, and worst of all, the structure of the shoe where the inner heel hits the shoe began to chafe. The Atra Zero Drop will not last (my Brooks Pure Cadence 3, bought simultaneously are still going strong). And avoid if you have a narrow heel.
