Who doesn’t love getting new shoes? It is one of my favorite things! I recently read a blog post about Altra shoes and the large toe box and decided that I had to try them. I have bunions on my feet and one foot is definitely worse than the other. A lot of the shoes out there are too narrow in the toe box and squish my toes. I have come up with a lacing scheme to help with the spacing issue. I ordered the Altra Intuition 2.0 for a really great price. Not ever wearing this brand or trying it on, I was a bit uncertain how I would like them. Once they arrived, all my doubts were cast aside. I tried them on and took them for a couple of laps around the office, they felt really good. I couldn’t wait to try them out on a run.
The following day, I took them out for a 3 mile run. They felt great! My toes had room, I didn’t feel like they were being squished and I could even lace them up normally. I had read that the zero drop shoes take some getting used to, so I have them in my shoe rotation and will gradually work up to wearing them more. I liked them so much I bought another pair today during my CyberMonday shopping.
