The One



  • Try the Instinct. Straighter last with no pinching on the instep. Has slightly firmer feel than the One, but a great shoe!
  • Already have a pair of 1.0's.  Wore out the lateral forefoot too quickly, and I'm not entirely sure I didn't get them a half size too small (lengthwise).
    Socks are a scam. Just saying :-)
  • Bryan, did the Instincts fit any better in terms of volume? I had similar issues with the One (my feet were just floating in all that space, and trying to lace it really tightly just hurt with the barely-there tongue of the shoe).

    I'm intrigued by a lot of the Altra lineup, but the One was my first shoe from them and it was a real disappointment, so I'm hoping that other models have a more moderate fit.
  • I'd say the Instinct fit a *little* better, but neither fit me perfectly.  I still can't put my finger on what exactly on The One I'd have changed except "redo the upper so it doesn't bunch right at my instep".
