    Too short. The width is good, but I think I would need a full size larger than I usually wear. That size wasn't available, so I don't know for sure. Had to return them.

    Unfortunately, these run a little small. I had big hopes that these would work out and I even ordered a half size larger than usual. They were wide enough, but not long enough. This was very strange considering that I own another pair of Altras in 6.5 which fit perfectly. These are last year's model, so they have probably made some improvements to the fit. If they fit you great, then no worries. Overal, a great concept with the wide toe box. Unfortunately, I had to return the shoes.

    I typically run trails in Hokas or Solomans. I thought I'd give these a try. They do have a lot of cushion, but I'm a 7 and I ordered up after reading the reviews to a 7.5, exchanged them for 8's, and it's still a bit short. They're good as far as the width, but even the 8 is short.

    GREAT FOR WALKING - HAD TO SEND BACK FIRST PAIR AS THEY WERE AN 8 & TOO SMALL - ORDERED 8.5 & THEY FIT BEAUTIFULLY. WOULD GIVE THEM 5 STARS IF I WOULDN'T HAVE HAD TO SEND THE FIRST PAIR BACK...

    These are some of the most comfortable shoes I have ever owned I love being out on the trail in them.

    I have Flinstone feet. Looks like I've been kicking rocks. The shoes rock for my feet. The most generous toe box, but not loose fitting. The zero drop makes it feel like my toes are pointing up, but I'm getting used to that quickly.

    I have difficulty blistering in unusual areas on my feet (for ex.) the inside of my heel & up on the top of my foot above where the arch is located - you find an unusual spot and I've blistered there. These shoes are extremely well padded. When trying them on they may seem to be lacking in the arch department, but so far while running in them they are surpassing my expectations! For the price you can't afford to not give them a try! I've always been a Brooks fan, but now they've got some competition.

    Altras are great shoes. I own 2 pairs and they do run somewhat small BUT this size 9 is 1.25" shorter than my other pairs of 9s. I have no idea what size to try to exchange them for.

    I ordered these shoes in a 10.5 because I own a pair of Altra Olympus shoes in that size. They fit like a size 8.5!!!! So I exchanged them for an 11. Still way too small! What gives Altra? That's just odd!

    The foot dr recommended I try altras. They definitely help foot pain, are super cushy. However, this style runs really small. I normally wear an 8 and these I got an 8.5 and it was too short. The intuition the 8.5 is perfect. I will return the Olympus and since they don't have a 9 will have to wait.
