Hi Guys hope you all are doing ok! This week I am reviewing the Altra Torin Plush 4.5 which is set to release at the end of May 2020.
The plush 4.5 is 1.1oz lighter than its predecessor, which means the standard Torin & the plush are now the same weight -which is great especially because none of the comfort or plush feeling has been lost. The plush has a softer stack height and is now 28mm compared to the standard torin which is 26mm.
The Torin Plush 4.5 is great for longer distance runs but can be used in the gym. If you find yourself spending your time doing about 75% running & 25% Gym stuff we think this is great shoe for you. That being said, the plush is a max-cushion shoe, while you can wear it for shorter runs such as a 5k or a quick loop around the block, this kind of shoe protects you for the long haul and we would pull it for a half or full marathon runner (especially if it would be your first marathon!).
