Fit for purpose – TOPO and Altra Trail shoes

24 November 2022

Tired of squishing your toes into slim shoes?

Did you know your toe shape can be very different someone else? Many people have a broad forefoot shape. These people often have difficulty fitting into shoes. This is because, many running shoes (road and trail) feature a narrow, restrictive toe box, forcing people to go up a size/width to accommodate their foot (which can be suboptimal).

Yes, you heard that right, even a “wide” fit shoe can have a slim toe box shape.

Topo and Altra set themselves apart from the crowd by featuring a more human toe box shape that allows for toes to spread and accommodates a wider forefoot. This generous toe box limits the risk of pressure/related injuries toe toes during long and/or hard days on the feet.
