I am so excited about finding this shoe. I didn't think I would ever be able to find a tennis type shoe that was shaped like my foot and didn't narrow at the toe! I feel like I have the best of both worlds, a tennis shoe that fits like a Birkenstock. I love the fun colors and they are adorable! My feet and my body say thank you!

Fabulous shoe! Love Altra! I normally wear 10.5 in running shoes but 11 in Torin 1.5 was perfect.

These shoes are really comfortable. They were recommended to me via a friend who also suffers from achilles problems. They are one of the few sneakers that hasn't caused me foot pain by the end of the day. I'm not a runner, even though they are designed for running. I have worn them to aerobics class and find them to be a bit too "heavy" and clumsy. But for everyday use, I would highly recommend them. I ordered several sizes because many said that they ran small. I found them to be true to size (I wear a 10).

These sneakers are very comfortable and well cushioned but be aware that there is an adjustment period for wearing, especially if you haven't worn zero drop footwear. The Altra website recommended I purchase a size 7 in this style but I purchased my regular size 7.5 from Zappos and I'm glad I did as a 7 would have been too small. I do not find that they fit small at all. The toe box is wide and the heel cup was fine too, there was no slippage. Since I purchased them I walked about nine miles in them, half on roads and half on trails. I found that the sole did not grip well on trails. They do not have great arch support so if you are looking for more of a stability shoe you may want to look at the Repetition model instead.

I was looking for a wide toe box. My big toe is longer than my other toes, and so many shoes seem to round out in that area, cramping my toe. I tried the Paradigm, Repetition, and Intuition 2, but the Torin 1.5 was most comfortable for me. I have high arches, and I'm recovering from a partial tear in a tendon. I've been wearing the Torins for about a month mainly for walking and regular errands, and they make my feet feel good. My podiatrist said he preferred a shoe with an elevated heel, but he was open to the idea of these. My chiropractor thinks my shoes might be helping with my back. I do have to stretch my calves and Achilles daily to keep them from getting too tight. I wear an 11.5 and the 12s fit comfortably.

I think I would have been able to actually be comfortable in this shoe. Unfortunately, my large toe hit the top of the shoe and going another half size up didn't remedy the problem. Also, the inside of the shoe appears to be glued together and was coming apart before I even got the shoe on. Not sure about the quality. Concept and comfort would be great for anyone who doesn't have the long large toe. Darn...had to return.

The orange accents on this shoe look awful! Not sure why they didn't just stick with the pink. Thought I could get use to it but it just looks too weird, like they ran out of pink and just threw orange on the shoe. Luckily ZAPPOS lets me return items because these are definitely going back. LOVE ZAPPOS, thanks for being so awesome!
