Plush with extra toe room.
The midsole foam is quite rigid, so the Torin is less flexible than it should be.
The updated version of the Torin running shoe has an improved fit and a slightly more spacious fore-foot than the previous model. A very comfortable, seamless interior with a well-padded tongue.
I can, however, tell you that I really enjoy this shoe, and will continue reaching for it anytime I’m forced to run on the pavement (I know, I know, woe is me).
The Torin 2.0 builds upon the cushioned and form-improving benefits of its predecessor with a smoother ride and a more cushioned midsole.
- The Altra Torin 2.0 offers a smoother ride in its more cushioned midsole. The plush feel is improved and the use of the Responsive A-Bound technology provides more energy-returns needed in each step.
- The shoe features the Fully Cushioned Zero Drop technology, providing the balance from the front to the back, thus strengthening the Achilles and the muscles in the lower calf. It is a satisfying design for a smoother and better low impact landing.
- This shoe for road running also features the Footshape Toe box technology that allows the toes to spread out and move naturally while running. It simply provides the foot ample space to move naturally and comfortably.
The Altra Torin 2.0 has a standard running shoe length. The mid-foot and heel areas hug the foot comfortably, giving an exceptional fit when running. For average size foot, this Altra shoe is definitely a great choice.
The Altra Torin 2 has an outsole built in the FootPod Technology. This allows the shoe to map the bones and tendons to provide a natural and free foot movement. Durability is also being tackled with the rubber material used in this shoe, as well as traction and grip.
The midsole of this shoe are enhanced with a more plush and comfortable cushioning system. The dual layer EVA A-Bound midsole material and technology is combined with the Innerflex technology and Zero Drop cushioning, providing the balance, softness, comfort, and flexibility at the same time.
The upper of this shoe is redesigned with a very comfortable and soft interior composed of padded tongue, soft sock liner, seamless interior, breathable upper mesh materials, and durable structure. The Quick Dry Air Mesh upper is breathable and the inner feel is comfortable due to a roomy toe box. This allows the foot to move naturally when running while maximizing the flexibility, responsiveness, and more energy returns.
