Altra Instinct 3.5: First Impression

My new Altra Instinct 3.5 shoes.
As the old adage goes, “You never get a second chance to make a first impression”. My first impression of my new Altra Instinct 3.5?


I haven’t been able to run in them yet, but I did manage to wear them around all day yesterday. The shoes felt great on my feet. The FootShape™ toe box is a welcome relief and allows for ample room for my little piggies to move around. The shoes look well designed and are aesthetically pleasing to the eye. The toe box is slightly wider and less rounded than other shoes but that’s part of their charm. I am reminded of one of my favorite movies, Crazy People, in describing Volvo cars, “Yes they are boxy, but they’re safe.”

My only negative feedback so far on the Instinct 3.5 is the laces are too short for my tastes. I have fat fingers and find it difficult to double knot them. 

Other than that I love my new Altra’s. Once the wet weather rolls out here on the East Coast I plan to take them out for a spin. Until then keep taking your kids outdoors…
