Odd shape just wasn't for me.

Comments about Mens Altra Impulse Running Shoe:

The construction is great and the shoe is everything is says it will be with the gigantic toe box and zero drop. However the over all shape of the shoe felt very odd to me and was not a comfortable fit. The shoe did not hurt or rub in anyway; the issue was that without any support my foot banged around inside them. I would still suggest trying them, they just weren't for me.


Impulse, a great fit and ride

Comments about Mens Altra Impulse Running Shoe:

Ran in the Impulse twice the day after receiving them. Run in Torin and Instint as well. Miss the Torin 1.5. This is not the same as the 1.5 but has similar cushion. like the narrower fit mid foot and heel and roomy enough in forefoot as well. Has been a good ride and i expect to alternate with Instinct but for my foot, medium high arch and narrower foot, this is a snug comfortable fit. Have been in zero drop for 8 months after 30 years in orthotics and over 30 marathons. Love the Altra shoes.
