About this deal

Compared to the Chuck Taylors popular among hardcore lifters, the Solstice XT feels like a Tempur Pedic pillow.

He’s been formally reviewing shoes and training gear for over 7 years and has hand-tested over 300 pairs of shoes. It’s the ultimate cross-trainer, built for in-the-gym weightlifting and lateral moves, but ready to get out on the road. The only caveat is that the external support structure, the cage, can rub a bit if it's tied too tight at the far end near the forefoot. The Solstice XT 2 performs well for athletic-focused training, recreational lifting, HIIT workouts, daily wear, and shorter runs.

As a whole, I like the Altra Solstice XT 2 especially if you understand the context in which they’ll perform their best. It has more protection around the midfoot on its outsole, keeping the shoe from fraying during activities like rope climbing. In the context of walking and standing all day for work, this model is comfortable and has become one of my go-to’s for walking the dogs, doing housework, and wearing for work. Allows your toes to relax and spread out naturally for more comfort and stability in uphill climbs and downhill descents.

I've purchased several pairs and have used the Solstice for the past four-five years, mostly in the gym. They're zero drop, of course, but don't look goofy like most other zero drop training shoes on the market.

It's certainly not like a big Brooks shoe with expansion joints and buttressing and all of the other things that go into snapping your foot back into position. Refunds can only be processed to the same funding source (credit card/bank account/PayPal account/etc. Third, the wide “foot-shaped” toe box, as opposed to most training shoes , is extremely comfortable. Comfortably combine your gym workouts with short runs-no matter how you break a sweat, the Solstice XT 2 is always up for one more rep.
