Altra Intuition 1.5 -

Altra's Intuition 1.5 is designed specifically for women, it isn't just another shrink it and pink it shoe. From the amount of cushioning to the shape of the shoe, it is 100% Female-specific. With the Zero Drop platform and innovative foot-shaped design, this shoe delivers many of the benefits of barefoot running with the comfort, cushioning and support that distance runners love. Follow your intuition and experience the world's first fully cushioned, foot-shaped, Zero Drop running shoe.


  • Drilex collar lining provides some cushioning to keep your ankle comfortable during extended runs


  • Midsole features an Altrabound top layer that feels springy so the midsole returns energy to help you glide through your stride
  • Midsole uses 12mm of EVA to provide cushioning that reduces impact on your ankle and knees
  • Together, the midsole and outsole make for a 22mm stacked height from the surface of the ground to the bottom of your foot


  • Synthetic liner feels smooth against your foot thanks to seamless construction that eliminates seam bulges

Support and Cushioning:

  • Shoe ships with two types of insoles: a 5mm thick, Sculpted insole for maximum support and a 3mm thick Strengthen insole for a more minimalist feel

Traction and Grip:

  • FootPod outsole is 4.5mm thick, offers moderate flexibility to complement the natural-running style of this shoe, and provides ample traction on road and off


  • Quick Dry air mesh upper allows cool air to move across your foot and it keeps this shoe lightweight


  • Female-specific design
  • Designed to reduce shin splints, knee pain, forefoot pain and bunions
  • Innovative foot-shaped design
  • SD3-W last offers a narrower heel, longer arch, narrower midfoot, and a higher instep than the men's SD3-M last
  • Zero Drop Platform (0mm) features a 1:1 heel to forefoot height ratio, which means that your heel and forefoot sit exactly the same height from the ground

In Altra's words, 'this isn't just another shrink it and pink it shoe,' and given Women's Intuition 1.5 Running Shoe's numerous female-focused fit modifications, it appears that they're right on the money. Over the past few years the world of running has taken a turn toward supporting a more natural running style, and the Intuition is a perfect example. This on and off-road shoe offers a foot-shaped design, cushioning, and the benefits of a zero-drop platform (heel and forefoot are equa-distant from the ground). You get impact absorption, space for your toes to spread out, and a foot position that facilitates the type of foot strike you were born to make. Even better, Altra truly designed this shoe for women who run, and run, and run... .

Designed specifically for women, the Altra Intuition 1.5 running shoe isn’t just another shrink it and pink it shoe. From the amount of cushioning to shape of the shoe, this shoe is 100% female-specific. Zero Drop™ platform and innovative foot-shaped design this shoe delivers many of the benefits of barefoot running with the comfort, cushioning and support that distance runners love. Quick dry air mesh upper with asymmetric lacing. Innovative foot-shaped design, premium Drilex liner. Wt. 7.7 oz.

Altra Intuition 1.5 Review:


Not a full review yet, but a note on sizing. All my running shoes (adidas, mizuno, new balance, nike, asics, and some saucony) have been a size 6. I have the first version of the Altra Lone Peak trail shoe in a size 6. But for the Intuition 1.5, I sized up a half size to 6.5 for a good fit.
1/22/14 Update: I'm up to about 65 miles in these, with runs up to 10-12 miles. Not the fastest/lightest feeling shoe but a solid zero drop trainer.
