FootPod™ outsole technology maps the bones and tendons of your foot for natural flexibility and more responsiveness. A top layer of our A-Bound™ energy return compound puts a spring into each step.

    This is an amazing shoe. Almost like not having anything on my feet, but very comfortable and supportive on the bottoms of my feet. Highly recommended.


    I received the Instinct 3 earlier this month and am extremely happy with them. They are really lightweight compared to the other various brands I have used in the past, but don't sacrifice any of the cushioning. The upper is constructed with a bit thicker of a mesh, maintaining durability. The best thing about theses shoes (and Altra shoes in general) is the foot-shaped fit. They fit true to size, but my foot has room to move my toes and there are no “hotspots” or blisters, even after 4 or 5 hour long runs. The zero drop has been beneficial over the last few months with transitioning to a more natural movement in running- I feel much more efficient while running. I would definitely suggest a pair of these to anybody looking to get into a road or treadmill shoe.
