Special order items take longer to ship

We want to make extra-sure you realize that you've added a special order item to your cart. These items take a little longer to get to you because we have to order from the manufacturer first. The "Est. Ship Date" is the date we expect items to leave our warehouse... so add your chosen shipping speed to see when it will show up at your door.

Product Reviews
Rated 3 out of 5 by from Sane toe profile, but not wide Why did altra choose to leave their blue ocean of wide toebox shoes and sail into the red ocean of typical narrow shoes that all other brands cater to? While this shoe still is the most foot shaped shoe for a marathon shoe compared to other brands, it's narrower than I'd like. It doesn't curve inwards at the big toe like most brands, but aside that it's barely wider.

Rated 3 out of 5 by from Fun ride but wears fast Had a lot of fun with this shoe. Great ride. A bit firm. Only issues I had is that shoe only lasted about 120miles.

Rated 5 out of 5 by from Love these shoes! I am Clydesdale runner (200+ lbs) and these shoes help maximize the return, leading to less damage and faster recovery. Plus, I can run faster in them, which is a plus. I can do much more running without as much joint pain. Thank you, Altra! Now, I am waiting for a Trail supeshoe

Rated 2 out of 5 by from Failed design but minor changes would make huge improvement While this shoe has some potential, it is a failure as is. There are pros and cons. Pros: The upper is light, breathable, flexible fit. It has a nice toe rocker to help with turnover at race pace. When walking in them they actually feel cushioned. Overall weight is light. Slim race fit. Has Good lateral stability for race pace. Cons: Too short by about 1/2 size. My Vanish Tempo fits perfect whereas these have my toes tight to the front. The tongue folds over so you have to loosen up the laces enough to get a finger down each side to get the tongue to lay flat before tying the laces. The EVA foam for the tread instead of rubber, just to cut weight, is a complete failure! The tread is almost gone at 50 miles. The EVA foam tread also lacks grip as I feel the slip with each step. The midsole feels dead! For a race shoe you want either a firm responsive feeling midsole or a high energy return midsole, and this has neither; just dead flat feel. With a carbon plate it needs the high energy return for the plate to actually work. I am faster in the heavier Vanish Tempo than these Vanish Carbons. My Vanish Tempos have less tread wear after 200 miles than what my Vanish Carbons had at 20 miles. You need to be running a sub-6 minute mile pace with a cadence over 190 SPM for this shoe to actually be beneficial to improving your speed. I'll choose my Vanish Tempos for half marathon and longer and my Escalante Racers for 5k/10k races over these Vanish Carbons. Both are faster shoes than the Vanish Carbons. Recommendations: Use the rubber tread from the Vanish Tempo for the mid and forefoot tread while keeping the lightweight EVA tread on the heal. Change the the EGO Pro midsole to the EGO Max midsole that is used in the Torin 5/6 so that the Carbon plate actually works, at least for the front 2/3 of the midsole. The back third could remain the EGO Pro for more stability. I won't buy this shoe again until the tread is changed to rubber and the midsole has more energy return.

Rated 1 out of 5 by from Great shoe for the first 50 miles After waiting a couple of years for the Vanish Carbon I was really excited to run in these. The excitement has turned to disappointment in less than 50 miles. The outsole has already worn through. Defect? Warranty? Sorry, no go The following are NOT covered by the Altra guarantee: Sole wearing out or worn through

Rated 2 out of 5 by from terrible sole material for an otherwise good shoe The material used to cover the sole is poor. The outer rear soles will show significant wear within 50 miles, so one ends up running on the foam, not the outer protective covering. Pricing at $240 a pair adds salt to the wound. i found the company's customer service difficult, they should have been apologetic for a deign flaw and properly addressed the complaint...but decided felt it was best to be reactionary, causing me to submit this review. Other comments on the same complaint serves to confirm this design problem. Parent VF Corp needs to take a look under the hood. this does little to engender customer loyalty in a competitive business.

Rated 5 out of 5 by from Would buy again. Slim fit perfect our rivaling other brands heavy box toe. Think I will be a convert to this brand.
