For superior, off-road performance try the Altra® Men's Superior Train Running Shoes.
I found out about Altra running shoes from an ad that aired on the Big Ten Network. I checked them out and liked what I saw, especially the zero drop feature. For a trail shoe, the shape of the toe box promises greater stability and fewer stubbed toes. The full outsole should wear better than some competitors who minimize it to save weight. I am looking for 800 to 900 miles from them. On pavement I find them a little noisy. MCRRC's trail runs don't start 'till April, so I will wait until then to test their off-road performance. In the meantime, I have purchased a pair of Altra Instinct 1.5s for the road. After reading other reviews, I did order a half size larger than usual, and I'm glad I did.
