HIIT XT 2 Running Shoe
Your old beat up pair of road trainers may still serve you well for the occasional morning jog, but when you hit the gym for some high-output interval workouts the worn-out soles and beefy construction have you falling behind everyone else. For those committed to high-intensity interval training, or HIIT, the Altra HIIT XT 2 Running Shoe is the upgrade you need to take your workouts to the next level. Building off of Altra's focus on healthy foot and body movements during runs, this shoe shifts that focus to gym training with a number of innovative design elements.
The most important of these is the PowerSole footbed, which is easily removed to give you a more stable, close-to-the-ground feel during squats, deadlifts, and jumping exercises. An updated lacing system ensures a supportive, locked-down fit during quick lateral movements, and the flexible construction with comfortable foam cushioning allows you to run comfortably, whether it's as part of the workout or a neighborhood jaunt. Speaking of running, Altra's foot-forward features that normally help you run smoothly can also help you thrive in the gym. The ZeroDrop platform gives you a natural stride during sprints and a comfortable standing position at rest, while the wide FootShape toe box lets your toes splay out natural for a stronger lifting stance.

I usually wear Keens because they are a little wider. These Altras seemed to be shsped the same way so I thought I'd give their zero drop a try. They dont fit my foot well. The toe box is extra extra roomy, I think it could accomodate a sixth toe. My mom loves Altras and has many pairs but these are not for me. If you are deciding between two sizes, get the smaller one.
