Comments about Mens Altra Paradigm 1.5 Running Shoe:

Overall this is a pretty good shoe, comfy squish that will take you many many miles at a time and Altra makes a pretty sweet shoe period. I have close to 200 miles on mine and the durability is fantastic and they are still ultra cush. My two issues... The size of this shoe, giant stack, wide toe make this shoe clumsy. The traction is lacking, I've been pretty unstable on wet pavement and groomed dirt paths. I'd also recommend leaving the toe laces a little loose, the width is awesome but if you tighten to much pressure builds on the top of the toes and forefoot.

    Comments about Mens Altra Paradigm 1.5 Running Shoe:

    While not exactly sleek, these are the most comfortable shoes that I have worn. I generally wear 4-E in another brand, due to Morton's neuroma, I wear the standard width in these thanks to the wider toe box. These will be my new standard.

        I fit 10.5 in other Altras. I got 10.5 in the Paradigm but it felt to short. I got an 11 which feels great. This shoe seems to be both cushioned (like Hookas) and wide forefoot. I like alot!

        Cons

        • Outsole Wear

        Best Uses

        • Long runs
        • Recovery Runs

        Comments about Mens Altra Paradigm 1.5 Running Shoe:

        I bought some Altra everyday shoes to see if they would help with the sensation of Morton's neuroma I was having and in about 10 days it was gone! So I bought the Paradigms and had no problem with transitioning to them from my Nimbus (which is a great shoe too). The outsole wears quickly but I have always been hard on all shoes as a larger runner and use another product to minimize this. If you are having any foot issues you might want to give zero drop a try. I've ordered some Torins to use for faster work, running in the Paradigms for long/recovery runs.
