Change is good

Comments about Womens Altra Torin 2.5 Running Shoe:

These have a large toe box that I need for a bunion. Now I have much less pain when running. It was hard to know what size to get, as these have a different fit than a traditional running shoe, so had to exchange multiple times.

    Comments about Womens Altra Torin 2.5 Running Shoe:

    Loved, loved, loved the Torin 2.0 and for some reason Altra changed the design on the 2.5. I wore a size 9 comfortably with the Torin 2.0 for many miles. I figured the same size 9 would work on the Torin 2.5....not even close. I had to return them for a size 9.5 and even those were way too small with my toes slamming into the front of the shoe on every stride. Really disappointed in the shoe and the inconvenience of having to return the shoe twice!

      This is the 3rd review I have written but they have never been on this sight. Probably because it's not favorable. We'll see if this one is published! I currently wear a size 9.5 Torin. They are a bit too short so I ordered a size 10. When the shoes arrived, they indeed measured longer, on the outside. When I put my foot in them my toes were crammed against the top of the shoe. The outside measured 10 but the inside was much smaller! When I called customer service I was told they are "sorry." I would have to pay nearly $10 to ship them back and they could send me a different pair. OK, what is that pair was also defective? Another $10 to ship them back, too? I didn't want to take the chance and be out an additional $20.00. If they were truly "sorry" they would have made it right and had a happy customer.

      Life changing

      By Angela

      Comments about Womens Altra Torin 2.5 Running Shoe:

      These shoes changed my life. I had been experiencing knee pain and hip pain that seemed to be exasperated by running. I had to take some time off from running. It was also time to order new shoes and my Mom, who runs marathons, loves her Altras. I decided to try them out and hated them the first time I ran in them because I have never purchased running shoes with a zero drop. I had boxed them up and was ready to send them back but at the encouragement of my husband, I decided to keep them. I told him they were the most comfortable shoes I had ever put on my feet but that I just didn't think I could run in them. So I tried running in them one more time and modified my form a little bit. I ran the further than I had in a year and a half and there was absolutely no pain during my run or after. I think my heal strike was too hard with my old running shoes, causing the joint pain in my knee and hip. I am now signed up for my first half marathon and looking forward to running in my Altras.

      The "zero droo" takes a while to get used to. However, the toe box is amazing and the cushioning is superb for long walks and long runs. Overall, a great shoe to add to your rotation.

      Love these Altra shoes for running my usual 5K distances and for biking on my hybrid when I'm combining these exercises. This is my 2nd pair of Altra running shoes, and I love them both. I did NOT need to size up 1/2 size for these shoes. Regular size is just perfect!

      I ordered half size bigger as recommended and they fit great. However after a few hours of wear, the middle outside of my foot starts aching. They look great on but my wearing them is going to have to be limited.

      I have appreciated the forefoot cushioning, crisp rebound feel and natural foot motion. The shoe covering material feels a bit stoic upon first wear, but I think relacing pattern will help. Enjoying the Torin 2.5!

      Why change a good thing?

      By Desiree

      from Santa Monica

      Comments about Womens Altra Torin 2.5 Running Shoe:

      I've been wearing the Torin 2.0 size 7.5 and they were great. I purchased the 2.5 in a size 8 because they seemed to run smaller and fit the same as my Torin 2.0's in a 7.5..... that is until I got home and ran in them! My first run in them was on a flat road and I noticed my right big toe was hitting the top of the shoe box. My second run in them a couple days later was hill sprints. Jogging down the hills my big toe was now getting crammed into the toe box! Altra has now added a thick strip of rubber/plastic material at the toe and it makes it super uncomfortable and not to mention a lot smaller of a shoe because of it. I even purchased a 1/2 size larger than my last pair and STILL had to return them because they were too small.

      Great shoe for runners with wider feet

      By Althea

      Verified Buyer

      Comments about Womens Altra Torin 2.5 Running Shoe:

      As a runner with a wide foot, my last few pairs of running shoes have developed tears around my little toe. At the recommendation of my daughter, I tried these shoes. They are great. There is ample space for my toes and the cushioning seems great. The heel felt a bit loose when I first started wearing them, but it's better now that I've run several miles in them. I am looking forward to continuing to enjoy running with these shoes.

      I love the Torin and love this update. Great shoe shape and the cushion feels like I'm running on a cloud. I like the outside material on the 2.5. I feel like this fabric will hold up better in harsh climates. These are still my go to shoe for longer runs.

      I have very wide feet. The 2.0 was perfect for me even on my long runs as my feet began to swell. The 2.5 is a huge disappointment!! Not the same style as the 2.0. The toe box is narrower. I tried loosening the laces to give my feet some extra room, the laces become too short to tie. Very disappointed in the 2.5. I loved the 2.0. Not sure why Altra had go and screw it up!! Thank goodness for the 90 day trial. They are going back!!

      No longer foot shaped toe box

      By Margaret

      from undisclosed

      Verified Buyer

      Comments about Womens Altra Torin 2.5 Running Shoe:

      These were about my 10th or so pairs of Altras. Sadly the toe box is narrower than the 2.0 and the plastic strip down the front also squashes the depth of the box. I exchanged for a half size larger but there was still a problem. Altra reps stated there was no change but 2 reviewers on that site also mentioned narrower toe box. I have to find a new shoe.

        I converted to altra's while dealing with IT band syndrome, and they helped me recover. I love the 2.0's, but the 2.5's seem even cushier! Right away I was able to go and run several miles in them, and they felt great.
