Why We Like The Altra Solstice XT 2 Shoe

The Solstice XT 2 Shoe makes an excellent cross-trainer, thanks to its run-ready zero-drop and its foot-protecting caged upper. While we're on the move, the firm outer layer adds extra support for lateral movements, and grid-like groves within the midsole provide the flex we need to keep going.

Solstice fulfills my 0 degree drop, wide toe box dreams

I purchased it after recovering from achilles rupture. I wanted a wide toe box because I am working on toe spread and foot strength. I love the narrow heel because in my gait I create a lot of torque from heel to toe, so less width back there reduces this twisting. The shoe is good quality, and I like the look. I used this shoe for walking and for gym workouts. I removed the liner and inserted a drugstore power step instead, as I do with all my shoes. I can't run yet, but when I am cleared to run I will invest in an Altra running shoe.

My favorite shoes

I am a teacher, I have been wearing them at work. Super comfortable and I can dress up with them. When I was hiking Mammoth March 20 miles last summer, in between Lone Peak and these, I picked these. 20 miles walk, my feet felt great.

I have finally found what I am looking for.

These are the answer to my "foot journey" prayers. I have transitioned almost exclusively to zero drop and these are the first shoes that feel like a regular attractive sneaker but have all the benefits of a wide-enough toe box and zero drop. These have the least amount of cushion of any Altras that I have been able to find, which is ideal for me because I am trying to do less support in my shoes to strengthen my foot. I have the Escalante Racer which is the same drop and it says the same cushion height, but that one feels way more cushy, so I don't want to wear it unless I am running on the road. These are great for my gym time, walking around, daily wear, and they look good - not weird wide toe sneakers. (I don't usually mind the look, but sometimes I want to streamline a look). I own several Altras: LP Alpine, Lone Peak 8, Lone Peak 5, Torin Plush, Escalante Racer and these Solstice XT2 shoes (ranked widest toe-box to narrowest) - and as mentioned these are the narrowest of all of them. I still feel like the toe box is plenty wide, but if you have a "pizza foot" or a very wide foot, they may be too narrow for you. I LOVEthese shoes and am going to sell one of my other pairs so I can buy another of these.

Staple shoe but problems with durability

Have worn through countless pairs of these. They only last me 3 months because the material on the inside of the heel is so flimsy it gets chewed up by my heel pressing on it. Please fix this Altra!

Best Sneaker For Me

I have Haglund's deformity with Achilles issues. My PT said we need to get me into zero drop shoes. Also the soft heel counter doesn't bother my Haglunds. For the past 3 years, these are the only shoes that don't bother my foot. Glad there are new colors as I don't like white sneakers and have only bought the black. I just purchased the grey! Will likely purchase blue in the future. More colors would be great! Please, please, please never change the design of this shoe!!!

My favorite walking shoe

I love these shoes! Only shoes I can walk in with planter fasciitis. Really reduces the pain! Great walking show. Please make more of the white color.

I would buy this shoe over and over.

I go to exercise class in my Solstice and also wear them just because they are so comfortable on my feet. I need a bit of a riser in my left shoe and with the Solstice, my foot doesn't feel like it's going to come right out of the shoe.

Great for cross training

I got this shoe for weight lifting, plyometrics and hopefully court sports (like pickleball). I like the shoes for these purposes and kept them even with the following comments: The shoe fits slightly larger than I would like for these sports and I got the same size as my running shoes. They are slightly more narrow than the running shoes I have from Altra with pressure on the meaty part of my foot just behind the forefoot. The heels are slightly wide as well and fall off in sled pushing drills if I don't tie them down extra tight.

Runs quite small

Returned and I'm just hoping to find them in person someday so I can try them on and know they'll fit. I do love my Altra trail runners, but I'm not certain enough of the size conversion between styles to reorder.
