Best Alternative to the Old Torin

I stopped ordering from Altra when they made their sneakers narrow, including my beloved Torins. Desperately, I came back to the website because my torn plantar platelet and Morton's Neuromas were still bothersome not only for running, but daily exercise too, even with my orthotics. Reviewers compared the Olympus to the old Torin. These are a nice width, lightweight and feel cushiony and comforting. They do run small, so size up. I don't run as much as I used to, but plan on using these for work also and will get another pair when I can afford it. Price is quite high.

Hands down- BEST SHOE!!

I have a wider foot so finding shoes can be a bit of a challenge! With Altra I can actually get my size and do not have to size up. They are super comfortable and allow my toes to move! Also, they are great support for my back. I can wear these all day and my back never hurt. With others such as Hoka and Brooks I have tons of pain in my back. One person complained they are "chunky". I feel they are cute and I've received plenty of compliments!! I plan on buying another pair just for back up. I 1000% recommend these shoes.

I have been running in Paradigm 6s for years. I ordered these when on sale to have an extra training shoe for upcoming race season and was excited about the extra cushion of the shoe. These are very clunky, I feel like I'm in platform shoes. Far more stiff than cushion. I've tried running in them to break them in but thus far things sadly haven't improved. Not entirely sure what I will end up doing with these. Back to my favorite paradigms I go.

I would most definitely buy these again and have!

This shoe has been a game changer for my feet and allowed me to walk and do races. Better my health by allowing me to not hurt while walking and running. Love my Altra's. I have Halex Rigorous / Arthritis in my toe and these help me to not continuously bend my toes over and over each day. I've bought 12 pairs to have after I get too many miles on a pair. I'm on my 4th pair. No issues!!

just bought my second pair

Very roomy in the toe box, and with the laces you can make it as snug as you need. I wear toe spreaders and my toes still have room to wiggle! These are a great everyday shoe, I wear them to work and for walks. Maybe not the best running shoe, but I use them for just about everything and they're good to me. The cushion is comfortable and plushy too, great shoe.

The angle of the heel cup is wrong for my foot.

I normally wear paradigms, but was looking for something with a lot of cushioning. I tried these, but the heel cup tipped my foot in too much and caused some alignment problems. I returned them and went back to Paradigms. These shoes may work for other people, but just not for me.

Shoes were stiff and bulky, had to return them.

I stand at work, and these shoes were stiff and my feet still felt pressure.
