    Comments about Womens Altra Paradigm 1.5 Running Shoe:

    I gave 4 stars because the heel fabric wears out so quickly--and shouldn't for the price!!
    I would recommend this shoe for other people like me who can't get enough forefoot cushioning and need a larger toe box so toenails don't fall off. As others have said--SIZE UP 1/2 size.

    These run super small

    Comments about Womens Altra Paradigm 1.5 Running Shoe:

    When Altra re-designed this shoe, they made it smaller and narrower. I can barely fit my foot in unless I wear thin socks, and even then I can't get the laces/tongue to fit correctly. Love the fit of most Altra's, wish they would be more consistent in sizing and quality/durability.

    Comments about Womens Altra Paradigm 1.5 Running Shoe:

    Have been dealing with multiple nagging injuries which curtailed my marathon goal. Plantar fasciitis, Achilles tendonitis, and some IT band issues. Saw these shoes at a race expo and decided to give them a chance. The cushioning is really amazing! My feet started to feel better right away. They are zero drop, which did worry me initially with my Achilles problem, but I took it slow. I started out w just wearing them around or at work (for at least a couple weeks). I started running only 20 min every other day and now am up to 40 minutes. My injuries are abating and I feel encouraged! Lots of room in the toe box, soft ride, lightweight. My only issue was that I needed to size up to a 9 when I've always been an 8 1/2 in most running shoes. My toes were sliding and hitting the ends of the shoe when I ran in them.
