This is as good as it gets for road run or all around casual shoe. I think I'm on my 4th pair of these across the different versions. Can't say enough good things!

I love the Altra brand. The fit is perfect. Natural toe box, zero drop, and cushion make it feel like you are walking barefoot on a cloud! Very comfortable and long lasting.
