Tired of squishing your toes into slim shoes?

15 December 2022


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.
