Positive Reviews:

I was headed for a place where I'd be doing PT rehab daily. I was really lost with all the choices there are. Finally, I phoned Zappos and spoke with a caring and knowledgeable woman who helped me. I'm a size 12, and my feet are medium width, but often swell, and some days I can't even get them in my regular "hard" shoes. The Zappos employee recommended these: I didn't know about an enlarged toe bed, or the other technical aspects of the shoe - but I really do like fuchsia! I also like it that these really don't need lacing, for my purposes. I haven't had such comfortable shoes in a long time, and even when my feet are aching and swollen, they fit in these shoes and feel wonderful! So this barefoot feel along with reasonable cushioning where it matters, and the shoe's interior and exterior design, actually add up to a sum greater than its parts, here, as far as I'm concerned. I head for my shoes every day and am looking forward to putting them on. Two more things: 1) I'm buying a pair of this same exact shoe in the black today - I think they look great, neon blue laces and all - when I find something perfect, I sometimes get two of whatever it is. And 2) A week after I'd shared my story with this uber-sweet Zappos employee over the phone about the major rehabilitation I'm doing now, a week after the shoes had already arrived, I received one of the most unusually lovely bouquets of spring flowers ever. I can identify a lot of flowers and know their common names, but this bouquet had blooms and blossoms I've not seen often from a florist. So then I opened the card to read, wondering who could have sent this, and it read: "You're inspiring people every day with what you're doing! Good luck from the staff at Zappos!" I was floored! The speedy shipping and return policy at Zappos is great. The caring work ethic, among and from Zappos employees, though, truly inspires me, and should not be taken for granted in these times! What cool folks, and what a class act! Heartfelt thanks, Zappos.

I have been buying form Zappos for over 12 years. I decided I needed a new pair of sneakers and intentionally searched out sneakers and shoes to accomodate underpronators. Normally, runners seak out the best shoes if they are underpronator, overpronator, or neutral runners. I am not a runner and I don't workout often but I do walk A LOT. So, I was looking for a very supportive pair of sneakers. I did a search under underpronator. Thank you Zappos for making that a searchable topic, it made my life easier. These sneakers had great reviews. I liked the streamlined look and it was on sale. I went for it. Coming out of the box the look was still fabulous and the blue color bright. As far as support, it was like my feet were in heaven. Extremely comfortable pair, they felt light weight, true to size for fit, and the flexibility in the foot bed was fantastic for easy manageability.

I have a bunion on my right foot and bought these shoes for the larger toe box. I did size up a whole size based on the recommendations posted on Zppos. I would probably go up another half size in the future. I found these shoes to be very comfortable for my long walks (5-6 miles a day) and had no problems adjusting to the zero drop. I do not usually wear shoes around the house so that probably helped with that. I wish Altra would make a plain black or grey shoe to wear with street clothes as I would wear them everyday, but I do not like the look of workout shoes with my normal clothing. I highly recommend these shoes for anyone with bunions.

The Altra Torin is wonderful. I love the wide forefoot and low heel of Altra shoes! My feet feel better in shoes with cushioning, so I really appreciate the additional cushioning in this shoe.

Negative Reviews:

I ordered the Altra Torins for their advertised wide toebox. I'm a distance runner and most shoes rub my little toes. Unfortunately, I found the toebox too shallow - the top pinched down on my big toe and there was no way I could wear them. I even tried a bigger size but had the same problem. I can't comment much on the shoe's comfort or performance because I didn't get beyond putting my foot in one of them. I take a size 10 in regular shoes. I tried a 10.5 and an 11 in the Altra Torin and, while they are not compatible with my feet, I would recommend going up a full size to anyone wishing to try them.
