Altra’s Best-Selling Torin Road Shoe Gets an Update

June 1, 2023

DENVER (June 1, 2023)/ENDURANCE SPORTSWIRE/ – Altra, a leading innovator in performance running, has released the seventh iteration of its best-selling Torin road shoe, with Torin 7 updates ranging from a stack height increase to a completely redesigned tongue, heel collar and mesh upper.

The Torin is a longtime member of Altra’s road shoe collection. Created as a neutral road shoe with comfort and distance in mind, the shoe is built for any and all runs. The Torin 7 redesign started with an increased stack height of 2 mm. The added Altra EGO™ MAX midsole foam drastically improved the underfoot cushion and responsiveness of the shoe. Additionally, a redesigned tongue and molded heel collar allows for a custom fit and locked in feel, while still providing space in the toe box for natural foot positioning. The engineered mesh upper for comfort and breathability were the final touches to make this neutral road runner the ideal runner for summer – and beyond.

“Altra set out to redesign the Torin 7 based on both consumer and Altra athlete feedback on the Torin 6. With extensive testing and road time, we think the newest edition is the best one yet,” said Alex Lind, Senior Product Line Manager at Altra. “The Torin 7 is a shoe built to go the extra mile and work with the runner for a more efficient, responsive and better run overall – no matter the distance.”

Torin 7 is designed with Altra’s Standard FootShape™ Fit, which gives feet more space to sit naturally and addresses biological differences in men’s and women’s feet. It will be available for purchase at www.altrarunning.com on June 1, 2023, as well as select retailers around the country. The shoe retails for $150, with five colorways for both men and women.


Altra was founded in the backroom of a small specialty running store in the Wasatch Mountains of Utah. Since the beginning, the goal has been to create innovative and purposeful running shoes that help people run more naturally. Altra’s unique platform includes a Footshape™ toebox that allows the toes to relax and spread out which enhances stability and encourages natural running form. Balanced Cushioning™ platform that positions the heel and forefoot at an equal distance from the ground, cultivating optimal alignment, better form and a low-impact landing. Altra’s purpose is to unleash human potential by inspiring the world to move naturally. Be a part of our journey and follow along on Instagram, Twitter and Facebook. #altrarunning
