(Logan, UT – June 3, 2019) Altra launched two new versions of its best-selling road shoe, the Torin 4, made for racing, and the Torin 4 Plush, made for comfort.
The Altra Torin 4 has been tuned in for the racecourse. A new Quantic™ midsole—the perfect blend of plush, responsive cushioning in a lightweight package—and strategic decoupling on the outsole gives a flexible but smooth ride.
By removing the strobel layer in the midsole, Altra cut 2 mm in height for a lighter, faster road racer. The Torin 4 has a 26 mm stack height and weighs 9.1 ounces for men and 7.6 ounces for women.
The upper features a lightweight performance mesh with a new two-tone design.
Color options for men are red/black, gray/blue and dark gray/lime. Color options for women are black/teal, gray/blue and wine/coral.
The Altra Torin 4 Plush is a more premium option that provides a luxurious and comfortable ride with a new, soft engineered knit upper that fits like a sock. The Plush version also features the Quantic™ midsole but is paired with a new premium insole for the ultimate underfoot experience. The flexible combo of the InnerFlex™ integrated midsole and decoupling outsole allows your foot to move freely and uninhibited.
The stack height features 2 mm more cushion than the Torin 4 for 28 mm total and weighs 10.1 ounces for men and 8.5 ounces for women. Color options are black/gray, blue/orange and gray/lime for men and navy/plum, blue/green and gray.
The Altra Torin 4 retails for $120 and the Altra Torin 4 Plush retails for $140. Both are available now at www.AltraRunning.com or at your local run specialty store.
While working at a running store, Altra founder Golden Harper was frustrated that modern running shoe technology caused poor running form and had not decreased running injuries. His passion to create a shoe that followed the science produced Altra’s FootShape™ toe box, Zero Drop™ platform and Fit4Her™ female-specific shoes. Since its founding in 2011, Harper and co-founder Brian Beckstead have grown Altra from one to 30 shoe styles, winning multiple Editor’s Choice awards and distribution in more than 60 countries.
