Al­tra Torin 2.5 £120

Runner's World (UK) - - Spring / Summer Shoe Guide 2017 -

Al­tra has been mak­ing its mark in the US, spe­cial­is­ing in zero-drop shoes with an ex­tra-wide toe­box. The Torin is its flag­ship neu­tral cush­ion­ing shoe, and while the Shoe Lab rated it as av­er­agely cush­ioned in the heel, our testers found it soft and pil­lowy – but in the wrong places. The heel felt hard to land on, while the mid­foot and fore­foot were overly spongy. Add the in­flex­i­ble out­sole grooves and you have a shoe best kept for slower mid- to fore­foot strik­ers look­ing for a has­sle-free long run op­tion.
