Great addition to my running rotation.

Comments about Womens Altra Impulse Running Shoe:

I moved away from Altra when it started going with the beefier sole. I saw these were for pronators and thought that I would give them a try. I'm thrilled that I did. I wear orthotics, and these have enough volume in them to accommodate the inserts without feeling too tight. And nothing beats the wide toe box of the Altra. These are a great addition to my running rotation.

    Comments about Womens Altra Impulse Running Shoe:

    I use this as a road shoe and it works well. Comfortable and pretty cushy. I have issues with the ball of my foot and I keep hoping I will find the perfect shoe that will make it all go away. This one does pretty well but after 5--6 miles it starts hurting again. I tried the Torin but it was just too much and it seemed to make things even worse. I would recommend this shoe.

    Comments about Womens Altra Impulse Running Shoe:

    Wow- Can I just say how much I love this shoe?! I own a LOT of running shoes and time after time I find myself using this shoe about 90% of the time. If I'm doing really really long runs I'll wear something with a little more cushion but I will run anywhere from 3-13 miles in the Impulse. This is also my favorite shoe to lift weights in because it's zero drop which helps align my body into correct posture. Shoes with an elevated heel tilt me forward and throw off my form when I do any lower body lifts. Altra really hit a home run with this one!
