Allows your toes to relax and spread out naturally for more comfort and stability in uphill climbs and downhill descents.
Engineered Mesh Upper
Designed to provide complete comfort, the upper of the Altra Torin 5 Running Shoes have been constructed using a breathable mesh. The mesh is specifically designed to adapt to your foots movement without sacrificing performance. The mesh is comfortable, breathable, and lightweight, encompassing all the essential elements to create a smooth, distraction free run. Not only does the mesh upper work to provide a contemporary look and superior comfort but, it also work to increase ventilation to keep you cool. Micro perforations allow air to flow throughout the construction to reduce and uncomfortable heat build-up; this creates a perfect micro-climate for your feet to thrive in. The shoe uses a traditional lacing system which will make it easy to achieve a secure and comfortable fit, whilst the padded heel collar helps to give that locked-in feel for improved stability and control. The upper uses Altra’s developed technology Footshape. This will allow the feet and the toes to naturally splay in a wide toe box. By having more space, this will allow the foot to relax and spread out, working to reduce over-pronation, enhance stability and creating a far more powerful toe-off.
Altra EGO™ MAX Midsole
The Torin 5 features an ultra lightweight and spring Altra EGO MAX midsole. This midsole is super light, so it wont drag you down, and has plenty of features that will make this shoe your new favourite. The dual-layer EVA works hard to cushion the foot on impact, protecting the joints and muscles from stress and strain as you strike down hard. This leads to a reduced risk of injury both short and longer term, so you can keep running with confidence. The ultra springy nature of the EGO MAX means you get bouncy rebounds that make you feel unstoppable. The EVA utlises the force from your last step to power you into your next one, resulting in reduced fatigue and no loss of momentum. INNERFLEX grid-like grooves in the midsole allow your foot to flex, while being super light for impressive speed. The midsole design features a Balanced Cushioning platform. This places your heel and forefoot the same distance from the ground to encourage proper, low-impact form thoughout your run.
Footpod Technology Outsole
Made from durable rubber with impressive grip and traction, this outsole is designed to help your feet move naturally for better form and comfort. It maps the bones and tendons of the foot, allowing the foot and shoe to flex and move naturally as you move, improving proprioception and ensuring comfort. This means you can adapt easily to the terrain of your run, ensuring better control.
