The Altra Torin 1.5 is a zero-drop, natural daily running shoe designed for a neutral foot motion, ideal for training or marathon racing.



Zero drop meets cushioning in the Altra Torin 1.5. Built on a level platform, this trainer encourages an efficient stride, while a wide toebox and foot-shaped fit allow for natural toe splay. Underneath, a padded midsole absorbs impact and keeps you protected from the road so you can log those long miles.

Customer Reviews

Comments: I can't say enough good things about my Torins. These shoes have great cushioning, I love the fit of the extra room in the toe box and they aren't incredibly heavy (they're not feather-light either). I've put about 400 +/- miles on each pair of Torins I've owned and ran up to two 50Ks in each pair. These shoes provided plenty of comfort on those 50K races. Pros: I love the fit and I don't have wide feet. The cushioning is perfect for any distance and most terrains (not so good on snow or ice) without feeling like a marshmallow under your feet. Not too heavy. Caters perfectly to mid-foot and forefoot strikers with me being a mid-foot striker. Cons: They do get a little hot and could use better ventilation on warmer days.

Comments: Torin has been my go to every day shoe from everything from few miles to a long 18-20 mile run. They are great every day trainer.
From: Emir, Flourtown, PA, USA. January 4th 2015

Comments: I used them on Road and trails. Summer races on trails they do great but wouldn't recommend on snow or ice. Run from a short run to 100mile race. Comfy under my foot and over my foot. After reading reviews on here looks like people go off a single run to rate a shoe. It takes me 20-50 miles to break a shoe. I didn't like the Torin after 5 miles, I love them after 40miles on them.

Comments: I'd read many glowing reviews of the Olympus so tried the Torin to get relief from occasional knee pain on long runs. Unfortunately, I'm underwhelmed. The large toe box tends to flex awkwardly and pinches the top of my foot. The cushioning is nice but doesn't seem to be much better than my Brooks Ghost 6. I find myself reaching for the Brooks, even on 10+ mile runs.
