Comments: I was first told of Altra as the ultimate in Crossfit footwear. As I had never heard of Altra I was skeptical. Then I saw them.....and was not impressed.....and I tried them on and that was the end of the argument. The fit is true, the feel of shoe is unquestionable. I have run more in them in the last few weeks then I ran all winter. In addition to an excellent running shoe they are great for all the demands of a busy Corssfit program. My only critique: I need the Instinct 1.5 in Red. Get on it and keep up the fire.
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.
