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 because you still get the comfort of the plush at a decent weight. 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 long-distance runs but can be used in the gym. If you find yourself spending your time doing about 75% running & doing about 25% Gym stuff we think this is a 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!).

This is my 6th pair of Altras, but my first road shoe. Simple put, it’s fantastic! I normally walk/jog/run 50-70 miles a week and with COVID I needed some treadmill shoes, these feel great, but are as light as a feather. I’ve worn them about 2 weeks now and no issues. True to size, with great support and excellent comfort.
