A real trail crusher.
Give those soul-crushing, ego-busting trails a run for their money with the Altra Men's Timp Trail Running Shoe. The Timp is designed to fall between Altra's Lone Peak and Olympus in terms of cushioning and tread, and it features a comfort-forward design that lends itself as a supportive compatriot for 50k runs. Though, the Timp does stay in-line with Altra's original design with a 0mm drop.
Though, to differentiate itself from the Lone Peak and Olympus, the Timp features a smooth mesh upper, complete with a breathable construction and TPU overlays. The dual-density midsole, which is 4mm more lofty than the Lone Peak and 7mm shorter than the Olympus, is equipped with a traditional EVA foam and A-Bound component. In turn, this foam combination provides unencumbered energy return, shock attenuation, and comfort underfoot. The GaiterTrap TM tech now features a four-point attachment system to maintain a secure fit, and the rugged TrailClaw and DuraTread outsole crushes varied terrain.

Great feel, horrible durability
The Timp's have been one of my favorite trail shoes ever from a pure running perspective. Love the cushion. Love the lacing and fit. They could be a bit lighter, but they're not too bad. The durability has been really poor though. I've had two pairs and have blown through the sides of both in under 200 miles. Don't think I can justify a third, even for a race shoe. Hope they fix it in the next iteration.
Great walking shoes

Picked these up to be the camp and walking shoes for a recent trip and they were amazingly comfortable. Wore for long days right out of the box with no issues.

After my first run in these shoes I love them! I've previously owned two pairs of Altra's Superiors and loved the lightweight nimble feel they provided, but did not like how quickly they wore out. After a few long distance races I was looking to replace them. The Timp has a similar nimble feel, but more cushion and a more durable feel for added support over ultras and hopefully will be longer lasting. In the Superiors I always wore a size 11.5, but the 11.5 in the Timp was too big. I sized a half size down to an 11 and it is the perfect fit.

this was my 4th pair of Altra shoes, the new Temp's
they have the grip of the Kings. but have a bigger sole.
they are very Squishy on your feet.
I am really digging the new reflective pattern on these shoes.
