Altra has taken the fan-favorite Torin and tuned it for the racecourse. They have added the new Altra Quantic midsole and removed the strobel layer which results in 2mm less cushion/ height than the Torin 4 Plush for a lighter, faster and more responsive Torin. The strategic decoupling on the outsole gives you a flexible but smooth ride throughout and with a lightweight performance mesh, this shoe is ready for spirited miles.
The 'neutral shoe' or 'cushioning shoe' is equipped without pronation support (the lateral support of the foot). These shoes are therefore suitable for runners who have regular rolling behaviour, i.e. who do not roll their feet inwards or outwards when running. The neutral shoe can be used for competition, for fast training and for long endurance sessions. The damping may vary depending on the application: in order to achieve more direct ground contact during competition, it is advisable to use only a slightly cushioned shoe. When training on hard surfaces or for long distances, more cushioned shoes offer better comfort and protect the joints.
