    Comments about Womens Altra Provision 2.5 Running Shoe:

    I was so excited to get this after my daughter raved about her Altra Provisions. But having tried it for over a month now (breaking it in as Altra recommends by alternating with a different shoe very other run for 2 weeks), I am sad to say I will be returning. Yes, the toe box is so roomy and my bunions are very happy, but wearing these shoes feels as though there are 10 extra inches at the tip of my shoes and I am constantly trying to stay balanced. I've already twice taken spills wearing this shoe, but today had a very bad fall while running on a paved sidewalk with badly scraped knees and elbows and I totally blame these shoes! I've been running for over thirty years and have never, ever fallen even when running on trails or steep hills, even during crowded race starts when everyone is pushing... until I started using Altras. I think I'm going to have to go back to my Sauconys.

    Typically I wear Asic Gel Kayano. Added this shoe for recovery days when I just want to relax my feet. It lacks the support and cushion I need for a vigorous run.


    Awesome shoe

    Comments about Womens Altra Provision 2.5 Running Shoe:

    I'm ready for my 2nd pair! Even though I prefer less cushioned (lighter) shoes, these became my 2nd favorite Altra shoe behind The One. They are great on the road, gym, and even trails. Very complete shoe.

      Comments about Womens Altra Provision 2.5 Running Shoe:

      This is my sole mate shoe! I love the built in stability wedge that helps with my pronation. I love how comfortable this shoe is. It is said to be moderate cushion, but my shoes have plenty of cush in them! This shoe is slightly larger than the Provision 2.0, both length and toe box wise, not large enough to warrant a down size, at least for me! I have numerous Altra shoes, but these are my ALL TIME FAVES!!
