|My new Altra Intuition 1.5|
As part of my ZOOMA Ambassador perks, I recently received a pair of Altra Intuition 1.5 running shoes. I have only worn them a couple of times but am already really liking them.
|Altra Zero Drop Footwear|
So how are they different from my other running shoes? The main differences for me are the zero drop and a foot-shaped toe box. Zero drop means the heel and forefoot are the same height off the ground which helps to align the body to its natural position and allows for a more natural foot strike. The foot-shaped toe box is not just a wide toe box, but actually shaped just like a healthy foot in a sock which helps to maintain proper foot position.
In adjusting to the new shoes, Altra suggests to alternate zero drop shoes with traditional shoes for a few weeks. I'll give my full review once I've run in them some more...
Have you tried zero drop shoes?
