      Comments about Womens Altra Provisioness 1.5 Running Shoe:

      This shoe does what Altra says- provides a cushioned zero drop with lots of room in the toe box. A couple of things I don't like about it: the reflective strip going across the toebox is tight compared to the rest of the toebox, so you can feel it going across the tops of your toes; the little webbing tab on the tongue sticks up really far and is always brushing into your legs. Otherwise, it's a very well-designed shoe, fits well and is very comfortable.

        Comments about Womens Altra Provisioness 1.5 Running Shoe:

        I have recommended Atra shoes to both my husband and my daughter. I suggest using the "show me how it fits" aid from the Altra site. It lets you put in your current running shoe brand and model and indicate how that shoe fits. It then recommends the correct size of Altra shoe. I actually went down a half size because I have a wide forefoot. The extra length in my Saucony shoes was to accommodate my toe spread. The Altras take that into account in the design.

        I primarily distance train and am doing my 14th marathon this year. The shoes are great for speed training also - at least at the speed I run.

        They wear well but that is the only thing that keeps running shoes from being a 5 rating for me. I hate having to replace them and having them be discontinued!

          Comments about Womens Altra Provisioness 1.5 Running Shoe:

          I run with my dogs every morning and was in need of a good comfy shoe. I prefer light runners but frequently get pains in my arches when wearing them. This is my first pair of Altra shoes and I have to say I am smitten! I love how they feel and have no aches or pains when running. They are super comfy and light. One thing on sizing though is I have to agree with other reviewers on the point that they can be a bit snug so you may want to order a size up if you plan on using the inserts.

            I am 55 years old and have run 8 fulls, 18 halfs and 1 ultra. Over time my feet have changed and I have spent the last year and a half looking for a shoe that didn't cramp my toes, hurt the ball of my foot or blister the slight bunion. THESE are it. They may not look cushiony but they are. My feet feel great again. Running Louisiana Marathon in them 2014.

              Comments about Womens Altra Provisioness 1.5 Running Shoe:

              I run 4 times a week training for 1/2 marathon. Bought these to try ANYTHING to help my chronic shinsplints. These are GREAT! I did 6 miles my first day out without compression sleeves and had NO PAIN! I did leave the wedge in.
              I've logged around 50 miles so far and still no shin pain :) I'm a very happy camper!
              I ordered 1/2 size larger than normal based on other reviewers, but wish I had gone up a full size. I can be perfectly comfortable in thin socks, but my thicker thor-lo socks make them too short. I'll be sticking with thin socks until it's time to buy a new pair and will up a size at that time, I'm sure I'll be reordering these!!
