Altra Torin 7

Every stitch, every curve, and every detail in the Torin 7 was reengineered to deliver peak comfort and performance. First, we added two extra millimeters of light and luxurious Altra EGO™ MAX foam to the midsole for a little extra bounce. Next, we redeveloped the tongue to ensure a plush feel. An updated engineered mesh upper offers comfort and breathability, no matter where you’re running. Lock in on every stride with an evolved molded heel collar that provides security and the perfect fit. With Balanced Cushioning™ and Standard FootShape™ Fit for natural movement, you can conquer any run, any road, and any distance in the Torin 7.

Altra’s roomy oblique toe box insures that toes can function naturally and comfortably.

Foot Dynamics is proud to be Altra’s largest brick and mortar retailer. We carry their entire shoe line in multiple colors. Models and colors change seasonally – we can help you find which style you are looking for.

Following years of tinkering and testing prototypes, Brian and Golden were ready to share their innovations and present a new option to the running world. Altra’s unique core technologies—FootShape, ZeroDrop, and Fit4Her—made their debut. The first shoe hit the market in 2011. Altra is known for much more than its Core 3 foundation. The company has mastered rugged trail advancements (GaiterTrap, TrailClaw, MaxTrac, and DuraTread) and redefines dynamic support with Stabilipod and GuideRail. Their unique midsole foams (Altra EGO, Max-LT, and A-Bound) set Altra apart.
