wide enough in toebox; narrow enough in heel
After decades of running and 3 foot surgeries it now looks like I may only be a walker from here on out. One surgery was on the balls of both feet and even shoes said to run wide were pinching there. If I go to a wide shoe, my heel slips out. These have been the best of both worlds - wide enough but not slipping. I had read reviews about the weird plastic tongue slicing into the bend in people's feet. I can feel this tongue but make sure to wear socks that cover it, and it hasn't been a problem. Still not sure why they don't just make it out of synthetic fabric like everyone else!
I have been wearing Altras for four years. This shoe has been a huge disappointment. Something changed with the size- I had to go up a half size. The worst change was the tongue. It is long and almost razor sharp. Did no one test this shoe? I wore them for a 4 mile run and ended up with cuts that broke the skin in the front of my ankles. Even taller socks did not help. I sewed the tongue back, which was not easy. Then I finally cut them back.
Tongue of shoe scratches ankle
Overall I like the shoe...BUT the piece around the tongue Is not soft AT ALL. If scratches my skin so much a scab forms! I have to put bandaids at the spot (on both ankles) every time I wear the shoes. It's VERY annoying!!!
