With a stellar new upper and signature Altra fit and feel, the Torin 5 Luxe takes luxury to a new level.
Like the standard women's Altra Torin 5, the Luxe version is a zero-drop trainer that offers a premium, cushioned feel thanks to Altra’s EgoMax midsole foam. This updated midsole foam provides support and responsive kick on the roads and trails, without adding additional weight. In fact, EgoMax is Altra’s bounciest foam yet.
The Luxe upper is lightweight and breathable with cushioning in all the right places. Additional padding around the heel collar creates a secure, comfortable fit without constraining motion. The foot-shaped toe box, a signature of Altra design, allows for natural toe movement while running for the most stable fit yet.
The Altra Torin 5 Luxe gives you the zero-drop performance and accommodating fit you need with a luxurious new feel that boasts more comfort for more miles.

Lve the Altra Torin Lux
Having liked the Torin Plush 4.5, but hating the Torin Plush 5.0 due to the hard change to the shoe's tongue-I was in pursuit of a new shoe and thought I would investigate the other Torin models. The Lux seems better than the Torin Plush for me in the respect that 1. The laces and tongue are MUCH better, and 2. Although it offer good cushioning-it does not seem as "spongey" as the Plush could feel at times. And I love the zero drop of the Altra models-so this shoe gets pretty close to a 5.0...but THAT 5.0 shoe would have to make me run like when I was 20 years old...and I am now 53. So, in that regard my expectations might need to change for a 5.09 rating.
