Comments: This shoe fits me almost perfect...I'm a EE foot, but Altra's shoe shape is a workable one for me. Having said that, If Altra would make a E or EE width shoe I would wear that instead. I love zero drop and all there is about the sole of the shoe. I am coming up on 300 miles and only have one complaint, (hence the 4.5 stars.) The mesh covering around the toe box is of sub-par material, and began to break down very quickly. It does not hinder the way the shoe runs or fits, but it's ugly to look at. I'm at the point where I may just rip the pieces off that I can, and just keep running. If Altra would replace this material, it would be the PERFECT shoe for me...as is, its still head and shoulders above the competition in my opinion.
