Altra Men's Paradigm 4.5 Shoe - 2020
Originally inspired by tired feet at the end of the Badwater 135, the Altra Paradigm continues to innovate with the updated 4.5. This max-cushion shoe features the performance of the Altra EGO™ midsole and the comfort of a knit upper. This shoe stands out from the crowd with its unique take on guidance with integrated StabiliPods™ for a stable platform and a GuideRail™ system for guiding support when you need it, but not when you don't. The asymmetrical design with medial flaring increases lateral support for weak or tired feet and is great for both neutral runners and those looking to upgrade from over structured "traditional stability" options.

Use to run, can't anymore due do bad knee, but still walk many miles daily. Paradigm has an incredible feel heel to toe. Support plus cushion. I'm normally a 2E but can wear the standard D width because of the wide toe box. Paradigm has slightly more cushion in the heel than the Torin, just FYI. Love this shoe.
This shoe feels great on my feet. I can walk, run, play with these shoes and I don't feel pain. Joints like ankle, knee feel no pressure. Best running shoe I've owned.
