The Altra Timp 5 offers a balance of soft and responsive cushioning that allows it to excel for both long days and daily runs on the trails. The Altra EGO MAX midsole compound has been updated for a more cushioned ride that not only shields the legs from the rugged terrain but also propels runners effortlessly through diverse trails.
A key feature of the Timp 5 is its new Vibram outsole that provides unmatched grip on a variety of surfaces and conditions. The strategically carved flex grooves in the rubber further contribute to the shoe's adaptability to ensure a smooth ride on everything from rocky trails to rolling fire roads.
The breathable knit upper adds another layer of comfort, while the "Standard" foot shape strikes the perfect balance between the "Original" and "Slim" options that delivers a secure midfoot fit with a slightly roomier toe box. Overall, the Timp 5, with its soft and bouncy ride, will be a great option for casual trail runs, long mountain adventures, and everything in between.
