The running geniuses at Altra convinced us to swap toothy trail traction (say it three times fast) for the plush construction of Instinct. What actually happened is that Active Junky was incredulous that this hard-core brand landed a style squarely in the land of mortals (non-runners). The cushioned Zero Drop platform added energy to our step, now anchored by a 5mm sculpted insole and proprietary outsole. Here’s a shoe that the rest of the world (boss included) will never realize feels better than a favorite slipper on Saturday morning. At only 10.3oz, there’s little to slow you down while a generous toe box allows a natural-but-supported spread.
