he New Torin 3.5 has been completely updated for a speedier look and feel. The upper features a brand new mesh with enhanced breathability, bold colour blocking and an integrated tongue. The synthetic nubuck heel adds durability and flair, while the trie and true midsole cushioning delivers the comfort and performance you love.
Quick Drying Air Mesh Upper
Quick drying air mesh encases each foot in breathable comfort. The mesh allows air to fully permeate the entire upper, sucking in cool, fresh air while at the same time pushing out hot, muggy air. This system creates a microclimate within the shoes that allows you to feel comfortable throughout the run. With the shoes being Lightweight and breathable they allow a more streamlined, comfortable run to reduce any unwanted bulk so you maintain focus.
Furthermore, the upper offers Altras unique footshape technology that allows the toes to be relaxed and allows them to spread out naturally with the big toe remaining in a straight position for additional comfort, speed and stability. Lastly, the upper features a synthetic nubuck heel adds superb durability as well as helps to lock the heel in place, preventing in shoe slipping.
Lightweight EVA Midsole
Lightweight EVA with an A-Bound top Layer resides in the midsole for lightweight cushioning and comfort. Having the cushioning enables you to efficiently propel through the gait cycle for a more responsive ride. Plush, EVA cushioning reduces the wear and tear placed on joints, lessening the potential risk of injury in susceptible areas. A-Bound cushioning provides amazing energy-return and sits directly under the foot to reduce ground impact and add a spring to each step.
The midsole additionally features innerflex technology that cuts a grid through the whole midsole unit, essentially providing flex grooves into the midsole. This reduces weight and increases flexibility in the shoe dramatically without sacrificing the cushioning.
Lastly, every Altra shoe features a Zero Drop Platform that places the heel and forefoot the same distance from the ground for natural alignment and low-impact landing. This Zero drop encourages a midfoot/forefoot strike which is the most efficient way to run and prevents injuries in the process.
Blown Rubber Outsole
Blown rubber has been used in the construction of the outsole to deliver optimal grip and traction, to give a firm, assured footing and a full, unrestricted range of motion. In addition, footpod technology is a unique outsole pattern that spans to the midsole that maps the bones and tendons of your foot to let it flex where it naturally wants to.
