Altra Torin 5 Luxe Running Shoes
About this deal
The Torin 5 feels very light for such a well cushioned shoe with the women’s at +/- 209g and the men’s at +/- 258g. Step onto a piece of heavy duty paper, card or even a bathroom tile and look at the footprint you leave behind. It wasn’t like the Torin 4, and it wasn’t its replacement; they were just two shoes that came out around the same time with similar names. Its support type is designated as neutral, meaning that it's designed for runners with neutral pronation.
Valid in France only with: Chronopost relais and Chronopost domicile (Chronopost on on appointment excluded), Mondial relay, Colissimo and France Express. For convenience’s sake, just think of this shoe as the new update to Torin Plush without the plush part in the name. I know for a road shoe, the Escalante was a massive change for Altra, but as far as people just put on a shoe and were really happy with the fit and feel, the Torin 4 was an awesome shoe.Innerflex grid-like grooves in the midsole allow your foot to flex while being super light for impressive speed. I further understand that violation of this policy may lead to disciplinary action, up to and including termination. This has made the shoes feel more flexible and the ride feel more natural, as my feet have the room to function like they do in other Altra Shoes.
It does feel slightly different from a midsole, and it’s not quite as soft and squishy as this, but it has that nice wide fit. A neutral shoe makes up roughly 80% of available running shoes and have the same level of cushioning in the heel and the forefoot making it suitable for a large section of runners. So this is a nice change if you’re looking for something a little bit lighter, springier but still giving you that full protection.It is advisable to pop to your local running specialist and try on a few different brands, on the treadmill if possible, to get a feel for the shoes. For example, a standard width in a men’s shoe is a D width but the 2E width will be wider around the bridge and forefoot allowing the foot more room and therefore not creating friction that leads to the upper splitting and not supporting the foot correctly.
These design updates offer an improved fit for your foot with our updated, sock-like upper material and added elastic throughout. Increased heel collar padding provides a more focused, locked-in fit and feel while the new Altra EGO™ MAX foam brings premium performance with a little extra bounce. If for any reason you are not satisfied with your purchase we will be happy to refund or exchange it for you.Now that shoe is out of the lineup; the Torin is now the biggest max cushion shoe you can get from Altra. I keep holding this shoe because this is the only color on the men’s side that will be available in white. The simple fact is that a running shoe will act as a shock absorber for your muscles and joints through its cushioning.
Our Altra EGO™ Max midsole foam gives you all the light and luxurious performance with a little extra bounce and added durability.
Altra EGO MAX Midsole The Torin 5 Luxe features an ultra-lightweight and springy Altra Ego Max midsole. This will concentrate the force of the impact toward the outside area of the forefoot leading to some runners that supinate experiencing foot pain or even stress fractures as a result. The Torin 5 Luxe sneakers from Altra are constructed using their own proven FootShape comfort technology to take you effortlessly through everyday life.
