My First Pair of Running Shoes

Altra Torin Zero Drop Running ShoeWhen I started running the first pair of running shoes that I bought was a brand called Altra.  I hadn’t heard of it either… but it looked like a great shoe to try!  I have wider feet so Nike shoes are just not going to cut it for me.  I tried the Altra Torin Zero Drop Running Shoe and I loved it!  I am a flat foot runner and my ankle needs support along with my feet needing some cushion. My only concern that I had with the shoe is that it forced me to over use my achilles and I actually experienced sharp pains after a few weeks of running. This could have been from lack to stretching before running. I switched shoes and have not had that same pain.  Read about the shoe that I switched to.

These are the technical deals for the Altra Torin Zero Drop Shoe – perfect for flat footed runners:

  • Quick-Dry Mesh
  • Rubber sole
  • Improved Upper Design and Durability
  • 5 mm Contour Footbed
  • Dual-layer EVA midsole with A-Bound top layer & Innerflex
  • Foot-Shaped Toe Box accommodates toe splay

Hi! I wasn’t a runner either. This is my journey of understanding how to run, getting in shape, and joining the running community.

This is where I started.
