I am an Altra Running Athlete and as such receive my shoes at no cost. I choose to write reviews on my blog for those who are interested. I am under no obligation from the company to do so, and the opinions expressed here are just that: my honest opinions based on my personal experience with the products reviewed.
I have never had good luck with women's dress shoes. Maybe it's because I wear a women's size 12 or maybe it's because most women's footwear is designed for looks only. Probably some of both. Either way, I am usually the one showing up to weddings in flip flops or wearing a pair of trail runners.
Therefore I was intrigued to see that Altra was making an "Everyday" shoe. So, I ordered a pair.
The Intuition Everyday isn't a real "dress up" shoe, but it's a perfect middle of the road between casual and office. I wear them to all my public speaking engagements (use the contact me form for more information) as well as to interviews, etc.
- The comfort of Altra's foot-shaped toe box
- Not having to sacrifice the zero-drop platform when you're not out running
- Neutral colors go well with many different clothes
- A little clunky looking
- Not well suited to wearing with a dress or skirt
If you are looking for a comfortable shoe in neutral tones to wear with slacks then this is it.
If you're wanting something a bit more feminine...then let's just keep our fingers crossed that Altra get's to that sometime soon!
