The Lone Peak and Olympus have been staples in the Altra Running line for years and the Men’s Timp trail running shoe slots in right between those two stalwarts with moderate-to-high cushioning and toothy, all-condition performance.
As with all Altra Running shoes, it has a FootShape toe box that differs greatly from the aggressive taper of traditional running shoes. This design lets your big toe remain in a straight position while allowing your other toes to spread naturally. This broader cut reduces the risk of bunions, hammer toes, and plantar fasciitis. The shoe also utilizes a Zero Drop platform (height of the heel and the forefront are the same) that encourages a natural stride rather than elevating the heel or manipulating foot position. This is meant to promote better alignment and a more natural posture while on the move which in turn lessens impact.
The quick-drying, reinforced, and reflective mesh upper is durable and breathable. Laser-cut overlays strategically bolster protection in areas susceptible to wear and abrasion. An integrated 4-point GaiterTrap allows for the easy attachment of Altra gaiters (sold separately). A deep EVA midsole with a top layer of Abound cushioning delivers comfort and responsiveness.
The shoe has a stack height of 29 mm and weighs in at just over 1 pound, 5.4 ounces per pair. The DuraTread rubber outsole with TrailClaw with 5mm lugs provides reliable traction on varied terrain.
Sold in pairs and your choice of color options, the Altra Running Men’s Timp trail running shoe is available in men’s full and half sizes.
