If you were to name a shoe after a space ship, the first one that comes to mind would be the Interstar Galactica (Star Trek fan, guilty!). It's got effortless grace flow about it, that makes all movement smooth as if time stands still. But if it needs to, it cranks on the boosters and gets you to warp speed! This shoe is a whole lotta fun, and its a beast of an upgrade on its previous versions. The new outsole is designed to encourage biomechanics and flexibility, while the tweaked fit and lacing system work together to provide a better locked-in feel. The grippy MaxTrac™ outsole completes the
perfect package for any terrain.
The midsole has got plenty of bounce to it, but zero-drop runs who enjoy more flexibility in the shoes, may want to rather look at something like the Lone Peak series. But it certainly has the uber soft cushioning to go the distance.
We recommend going 1/2 size up on your regular shoe size or other Altra shoes.
However if you ran in the previous Timp 1.5 version, you can stay on that size.
