The Torin Plush 4.5 give your feet the opportunity to look and run luxuriously. Built on the same premium midsole and outsole, the new version is more than an ounce lighter. The knit upper treats your foot like royalty, offering a more comfortable, more locked-in feel.

At least, the one's I've been looking for. Tried and true Altra design, though as is often mentioned not as extravagantly different from other manufacturers as they used to be, but unless you're stuck in the past, that definitely isn't a problem. I've done a handful of long distance road runs in them and they perform quite well. Weight is fine for the stack height, outsole is all rubber and excellent (looking at you Superiors!), and upper is extremely comfortable. I only run in these, but I imagine as a walking shoe they'd be more than excellent.
150 miles in and I can honestly say these are my favorite Altra’ yet. I originally was drawn to Altra by the Escalantes, and still love them, but after heavy mileage weeks on largely roads, my feet and legs felt tired. These Torins are what I wanted the Escalate to be. Beefier with out the weight, the same springy step. The knit uppers are super comfortable, and the toe cap that was in previous versions of the Torin is less pronounced (which I like much better), while still maintaining a roomy toe box. I find them to be no slimmer than previous versions and I have pretty wide feet - like, I could never wear a pair of Nikes, even casually. Also really big improvement in the outsole material. They really nailed the rubber - it’s very durable with out feeling hard. I found previous road Altras wore quickly along my pronation pattern. All in all a GREAT shoe, hope they stick with this design for awhile. The red looks great too.
Bye-Bye Nike, Asics, Mizuno, ON and Salomon! I bought my first pair of Altra's in February this year, and by June my wife and I have become the proud owners of seven pairs of Altra's. Combined we do over 100miles a week hiking and running, and these shoes are simply lighter and more comfortable than all our previous shoes. We literally threw all the others away! Purchased online from RunMoore, which offered very quick delivery and good service - the YouTube review of the Torin Plush before the release was extremely helpful, and helped us make the decision to buy https://youtu.be/F6izepql1Ss. The shoes fit true to size, are super light, and the quality of construction is good. Absolutely would buy again, 10/10.
This is my first Altra shoe and I couldn't be happier. I do have issues with shoes being a bit too snug for my feet but these shoes fit perfect. The first 2 or 3 runs they felt snug but opened up and now fit perfectly.
This is my 6th pair of Altras, but my first road shoe. Simple put, its fantastic! I normally walk/jog/run 50-70 miles a week and with COVID I needed some treadmill shoes, these feel great, but are as light as a feather. I've worn them about 2 weeks now and no issues. True to size, with great support and excellent comfort.
Decided to pull the trigger after watching the RunMoore video on YouTube. They are as described...light, cushioned and super comfortable!
It's pretty much as Steve's video review said it would be, a lighter (and thus more nimble) version of the Plush 4.0. The updated tongue, which makes the shoe lighter, is great -- still comfy despite the reduced mass. The ankles also feel more secure thanks to the modification in that area. I was a big fan of the 4.0 Plush and I'm loving the 4.5 even more! I should also note that every aspect of ordering was great, and the shoes even arrived earlier than expected. Thumbs up to everyone at Run Moore!
