The Perfect Shoe
By JC (New York, NY) on (Feb 6, 2013)
Comments: I never written a review of a product online, but running in the Instinct 1.5 has been such an amazing experience that I feel like I have no choice but to post a review. I have incredibly wide toes and have struggled for years to find running shoes that don't rub painfully against my feet. The Altra Instinct 1.5 is that shoe! Not only is the toe box wonderfully wide, but the shoe is also zero drop with enough cushioning to protect my feet on my long Saturday runs. This shoe is an absolute revelation!
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.
