Want to get more steps, improve your speed, or simply run more miles? Altra’s Torin 4.5 Plush running shoes can help. This updated model from Altra is over an ounce lighter than the previous version, weighing in at 7.4 ounces. You’ll feel noticeably lighter and faster on your feet in these.
Interested in trying a more natural form sneaker, but don’t want to venture into barefoot running? The Torin 4.5 Plush are a great gateway shoe. They have a trademarked “footshape toe box that allows your toes to spread out and relax for a more natural stride, plus extra comfort and stability.
These sneakers also feature balanced cushioning that is great for road running (or on other hard surfaces), and helps encourage proper, low-impact form.
Unlike some running shoes that are designed off of a men’s form, the Torin 4.5 Plus use unique Fit4Her technology that is tailored to the anatomy of a women’s foot.
So what does all that technology actually feel like? It does what all great running shoes do—lets you not think about them while you’re on your run, until you get back and notice that you’ve set a new personal record.
