Comments: I bought the Instinct 1.5 late December 2012 and have logged 180km on them so far. They are by far the most comfortable runners I have worn (quite a few). The foot shape design really suits my flattish feet. I found my feet would get sore after 12k in other shoes but not the Instincts. My only gripe is the mesh upper material is starting to disintegrate around crease points on the toe box. Everything else even the sole shows very little wear. Altra please consider using a more durable upper material. And lastly, please bring Altra's to retailers in Canada ASAP. I want a pair of Lone Peaks 1.5!
An upgrade from the original award-winning shoe, The Instinct™ is the first shoe to truly marry the form-improving benefits of a minimalist shoe with the comfort, cushioning and support of a traditional running shoe. The Zero Drop™ platform and innovative foot-shaped design work together to help runners maintain proper running technique and reduce joint impact while freeing their toes to help alleviate foot pain. Trust your instincts and experience the world’s first fully cushioned, foot-shaped, Zero Drop™ running shoe.
