great shoe...mesh sucks!!!!
By JoeProcopio (Morristown, NJ) on Jun 16, 2013
shoe fits great, nice wide toebox, love the sockless feel but there is a BIG problem that seems to be developing amongst owners. The MESH!!!! I purchased mine at the Runner's World Half Marathon last Oct. that my wife was running in, I was not a runner at all, a cyclist, but decided to start...got a great price on them at the Festival so I got them...i have only put on a good 50 miles of running and some walking around with them and the mesh is tearing and ripping in the exact same spot on both shoes, the large toe between the mesh and where it connects to the toe guard. I have contacted Altra to see if this will be remedied, but from the reviews on this very site, it seems they haven't been very helpful. I have always found the people at Altra to be great, so I'm a little surprised at the lack of acknowledgment of the issue. I think it calls for a recall and hopefully I will get contacted and taken care of the right away...I own Instincts, and the 1.5s...and my wife has the Eves...not to mention I helped my brother in law into a pair of the Torins...so I have promoted the growth of the brand...

I took a chance on buying shoes over the internet. I have had numerous foot issues. I have wanted to get back to running but
the pain was to great to continue.
I slip these shoes on, and kid you not, heel pain gone forefoot discomfort gone...I just order a pair of Lone Peak 1.5 I was so impressed with Altra
