The Altra Torin 4 just got faster.
Altra took the popular Torin 3.5 and sliced out 2 mm of cushion for a lighter, faster, more responsive ride. Even without those 2 mm, though, the Altra still packs a 26 mm stack height for a protective feel underfoot.
But the changes for the race track didn’t change the shoe’s fit. Altra still used its FootShape fit to give it a wide, foot-shaped toe box that lets your foot splay naturally, and a 0 mm heel-to-toe drop keeps your stance neutral.
At only 9.1 ounces for men and 7.6 ounces for women, the Altra Torin 4 is eager for your fastest miles.

I am an Altra convert!🙌🏽 Love everything about these shoes.
I am a distance runner (currently training for marathon #5) and have battled with IT band problems off and on for a couple years. I have a tendency to heel-strike, which puts too much stress on my IT band, so in addition to working on my running form, my PT recommended I wear a flatter shoe (8mm or less heel-toe drop) to help force me to land more mid-foot. This shoe is as flat as you will find and really forces a mid-foot landing. It is also extremely comfortable for someone like me with a wide foot and high arch. There is a lot of room in the toe box to allow your toes some space to spread as you run, which is a natural function of our feet. Additionally, these shoes are light-weight but feel durable unlike some of the light-weight shoes that are made primarily of foam and seem to break down faster, in my experience. I was able to comfortably run 7 miles in these shoes straight out of the box and have not had any issues with blisters or trouble breaking them in.
Easy purchase process. Quick shipping and product arrived as described.
I ordered a pair of Women’s Ultra Torin 4’s. They were easy to find online. They came fast and they fit perfect!
The Fleet Feet customer sales rep, Tracy, spent lots of time and patience helping me pick out some shoes. I have bunions and hammertoes so my feet are very fussy. We finally found a pair that made my feet feel great but I didn't like the color. She had the new color delivered to my home in two days - no extra charge! Cathy
