People often ask what my favorite shoes for running are. I’ve been sponsored by Altra Running for many years now, so all my suggestions are their shoes as that’s what I know. That being said, why choose any other brand?! For me personally toe space is #1 for Ultrarunning and longevity in the sport and in life and Altra is the only shoe I’ve ever been able to use that allows my toes a natural foot space rather than the pinched tip that is so common.

When there’s not enough space in the front of your shoe the following will happen: you’ll kick things and instead of the shoe taking the brunt of the impact, your toes will. If your toe boxes are too small or too narrow you will also hit the front of your shoe on steep downhills. This causes bruising over time and loss of toenails. It also can cause blisters. Toes that are too close in shoes will chafe and blister.

My favorite trail running “All Mountain” shoes are the Timp 1.5. I wear them for everything.

I also love the new Lone Peak 4s, a wonderful improvement from the older version, a bit lighter and more responsive. I always thought the older Lone Peak were a bit heavy/bulky so I never really used them, but the new version is 👌.

My favorite road shoes are the new Torins. By far. I use them at my treadmill desk for 8-12 hrs at a time.

What I’m really, really excited about though is Altra Running getting into the outdoor adventure realm! Wider toe shoes you can use as approach shoes or for Canyoneering that transition to dinner and parties (ok, I’m not a girly girl so they work for me!). Check out the brand new Wahweap shoes (pictured) with grippy sides and 30% hemp body. The shoe’s sole is siped for technical multi surface traction. Toe is wrapped in rubber so you can scramble or climb some rocks if the opportunity arises 😉 If you like these you will also like the Grafton Mesa, a trail hiker with an approach/canyoneering twist featuring climbing style toe cap and rugged suede leather and canvas upper.
