I just like Altras.

I'm more of a walker than a runner (these days) and I've decided that I really like Altra's "zero drop" platform (if you're not familiar with it, your heel is going to be - and feel - lower than it would be in a standard running shoe) and their nice wide toe box. I purchase a size 8 in Altras when I purchase 7.5 in Brooks / Saucony / Asics. I believe I have a high arch and an average to wide fore-foot. I've found it nice to allow my toes plenty of spread and wiggle room. The black is cute, believe it or not...but I'm past being concerned about that. If it hides the dirt from my daily-dirt-road-dog-walks, I'm happy. If you've considered minimalist running (or walking) shoes, but don't want to throw a bunch of money away if you end up hating them, Sierra's prices are incredibly competitive. This might be the time to give this style a chance.
