If you're looking for a cushioned zero-drop running shoe then you've come to the right place. As a neutral road running shoe, the Torin doesn't really have any weaknesses. It is well-cushioned but not as cushioned as ultra-plushy shoes like the HOKA Clifton and its EGO Max foam provides a responsive feel that you'll notice right away.
As with all of Altra's shoes, the Torin's zero drop design means that your heels and toes are level with each other. This design is tailored for certain types of feet and runners.
Those who are serious runners with good form may be interested in this design as a way to strengthen their arches. However, the Torin is NOT for people with flat feet or those who tend to over pronate.
Altra Torin shoes aren't for taking out into the yard or agility training: stability in these shoes is minimal because they're only meant for the road. The structure is designed so that the shoe is unobtrusive and won't interfere with your natural biomechanics. It will round corners, but don't expect the Torin to be a go-anywhere shoe.
But, if you're looking for a daily trainer, then the Torin will serve you well.
