Altra - why put a seam right on the widest area of my toes?

    Comments about Womens Altra Paradigm 2.0 Running Shoe:

    I'm a marathoner and have enjoyed many Altra shoes (going way back to the Instinct 1.5 which I loved). I've put a lot of miles on the Torin, Olympus, and the Paradigm in different models. This one just does not work.

    Firstly for a "wide" shoe it is very narrow right at the ball of my foot on the medial side. It's not narrow, per se, but it's much narrower than many Altra's I've worn. This seems to be a pattern with their later versions. It's disappointing. That might have been ok with some break in but they put a seam RIGHT where that spot is. It's my blister spot, the spot that rubs due to width in so many running shoes. Since I do very long runs any seam that is going to be constantly hitting my foot at the widest part and in a shoe where I can feel that seam - this is absolutely going to cause major blisters.

    In addition the fabric is prone to creasing by the top of the foot. I can already feel the tendency (happened to me in another shoe with a similar fabric).

    They felt comfy - and I liked the responsiveness...but the seam. WHY Altra why??? Don't give width and then plop a seam right at that point!

    • Sizing:
    • Feels half size too small
    • Width:
    • Feels too narrow
    • Arch Type:
    • Average Arch
    • Was this a gift?:
    • No

    Comments about Womens Altra Paradigm 2.0 Running Shoe:

    I like these much better than the Paradigm 1.5 model. The fit is better in the forefoot- maybe because the overlay is different. No more blisters on my bunions. They have a flexible cushioned ride. Much more comfortable than Hokas in my opinion.


    Wrong fit compared to the Olympus

    Comments about Womens Altra Paradigm 2.0 Running Shoe:

    I was hoping these would fit similar to my Altra Olympus shoes, but not nearly as comfortable. A bit more narrow and the toe box felt a bit more snug. I guess I will have to wait for the Olympus style to come out with more colors.
