The All New Timp 3 from Altra is the divine entry to a sturdy and reliable trail shoe. If you are making the branch from road to trail then you need a shoe that is reliable in the sense of comfort and drop that you may have been used to in your standard road running shoe. Altra uses their Quantic Foam to give you a plush underfoot feel and and shock absorption to allow for any high intensity trail day. Combined with the Maxtrac Outsole to make for extra grip on the outside variable terrain. The Timp 3 maintains Altra's commitment to encouraging the natural function of the foot as it has a zero-drop midsole (29mm stack height) and a more rounded, Footshaped toebox. Altra did tighten up the midfoot wrap in the Timp 3 compared to previous models.
FOOTSHAPE - Altra's Signature foot shape allows your foot to lay more naturally and spread out to give you added comfort in high intensity trail running
BALANCED CUSHIONING - Giving the runner a balance from heel to toe to provide better alignment
GAITERTRAP - Extra loops that allow you to connect your gaitors seamlessly to the up part of your shoe
TRAILCLAW - Added lugs under the metatarsal to provide better traction under your foot in the ideal part
Perfect extra space for my 6th toe. So comfy it feels like walking in furry moccasins. Great grip, makes scrambling up rocks and hiking downhill very easy. Would highly recommend if you need a wide toe box
