    5 Review Stars By Billy

    I have been running in Vibrams for 2.5 years now.  I get tired of having to roll my calves out after every run and then having to build back to where I was (leg/feet wise) if I cant run for a couple weeks.

    The Altra's are great.  No need to roll my calves out after each run.  This shoe is excellent for running on the streets, sidewalks, and blacktops.  It has just enough cushion to protect against injury yet it still allows for good ground to foot feedback.  Also the mesh protection above the toes has been great for keeping dew and moisture out.


    Fit: Feels true to size
