Light and tough, this shoe is made for the trail. The roomy toe-box and wide footbed create a non-confining space without any sacrifices in security. You will have no foot claustrophobia in the Altra Superior 1.5.

Zero break-in time; my feet entered the shoe and immediately I was on the trail with no regrets nor pain. Learn how to tie your shoes correctly with a heel-lock for maximum safeguard.

This product is best for runners and long distance hikers who are looking for an ultralight shoe to support them on trails.

After 3/4 of a year hiking southwest Virginia and northern Arizona, the shoes are still in good shape, with the only wear and tear being on the upper ventilated sections and the tread worn down.

4 stars because tread could be improved — grip is lacking on gnarlier and wetter environments.
