USE: Trail Running, High Mileage trail days
The Altra Timp 3 is a comfortable trail shoe. It features the Quantic high-cushion midsole that allows the wearer to stay out on the trail for long days out. Shelly feels it is a familiar Altra fit and the toe box feels the same as my other Altra I own. I feel like it gives me extra traction with the way my toes are able to spread out. It is true to size. It is a nice fitting, comfortable shoe.
I feel stable in this shoe. I have worn it multiple times now in different snowy conditions and have not had any slipping. Have felt secure when going through uneven areas. The MaxTac outsole is a big player in why this shoe has that secure ground feel that Shelly experienced. Nice and grippy for dirt and snow and whatever else Mother Nature throws at you out there on the trail.
Shelly was able to wear this shoe over varying distances with the longest run being 8.5. Shelly felt they held up nicely for that distance. This shoe is designed for long days on your feet. Due to the Quantic cushioning, the wearer will feel a lot of propulsion with lift off. She says I prefer the cushion comfort of a road shoe for longer distance, but I liked this shoe better than wearing traction over road. This demonstrates the Timp's versatility allowing it to cross over from trail to road.
I have a pair of Altra Dyani that are my favorite casual shoe. The build of the shoe is similar and makes the fit feel familiar. My other trail shoe is ON Cloudventure. The fit is very different so I like that it gives me a different option for different terrain. Altra's trail shoes from low to high cushion are the Superior, Lone Peak, Timp, and then Olympus. The Timp 3 is on the high end of Altra's cushioning lineup.
