Product Reviews
Rated 1 out of 5 by from Unfortunate Redesign Disappoints Very disappointed with these. Loved the 4s and 5s but this just feels like a different shoe. I don't know how to articulate my problems with this shoe like some of the other reviewers but these feel much too narrow & they make my knee hurt. I can appreciate Altra trying something new but I hope they return to form on the next Provision or begin to offer some kind of legacy shoe that is like the 4 or 5. Until then l'll be stocking up on secondhand and old stock pairs of the 4s & 5s to hopefully last me a few years. Altra, I'm okay with your shoes only lasting 6 months as long as I can keep getting more of them!

Rated 5 out of 5 by from Favorite Altra shoe so far I ran in the Escalante(which I loved) for the past five years, but I always struggled with shin splints any time I ran more than 25-30 miles/week. I decided to look for something with a touch of stability to take the pressure off of my shins(I tend to over pronate), and the Provision 6 has fit the bill perfectly. It's everything I loved about the Escalante, but feels secure enough--especially in the midfoot--to put lots of miles on. Perfect amount of cushioning, thin and secure upper material, and sick look. 10/10 recommend to someone who loves a neutral shoe but needs a little bit of support for higher mileage.

Rated 2 out of 5 by from Disappointed, Provision 6 is narrower than previous version Very disappointed in Altra. My original foot shape go-to Torins, which were life-running changing, were changed to the Plush, which is not as comfortable and optimal for full mid foot running. This Torin change forced me to switch to the Provisions. Now, the Provisions have changed - too narrow causing bruises on the side of my foot after short runs. Why can't Altra keep a full "original" foot shaped zero drop road shoe, which launched them into the market and gained a loyal following?

Rated 5 out of 5 by from Perfect Fit...Size and Use I've had a couple Altra's in the past. A couple wore out way too fast and then the toe box shrunk. After running a couple marathons in a month last fall I had some discomfort on the inside of my ankle. I looked for a shoe with a wider toe box and a little stability. Didn't want to rock the ankle too much. After resting the ankle I worked the Altra into my rotation. So far, so good. I've babied it somewhat not wearing it during sloppy conditions during Wisconsin weather.I think the best thing I can ever say about a shoe is that I am not aware of it when I run. Nice fit. Nice feel.

Rated 4 out of 5 by from Not enough support for pronation Big improvement over the provision 4/5. Lacing system is a lot better and like the innovative integration. Toe box is nice and roomy, really like the ego midsole. Feels narrow in the mid foot, and doesn't have the support I need for over pronation though. When running I can feel I'm against the guiderail the whole time and toe off it's not my whole pad just big toe and one beside it. Bring back a Varus wedge or something like the previous models had. I loved the provision 3.5's but the mid soles were very firm.

Rated 1 out of 5 by from Not another redesign I'll be waiting for the next redesign. I hope a few folks are fired and some sanity returns to the original shoe features that we all came to love. And the fabric on the heel cups and toe boxes is still too weak, causing wear rips and toe push throughs. Cheap materials result in cheap throw away shoes.

Rated 3 out of 5 by from Mixed bag I like some of the updates. The lacing system is much better than 5. The fabric seems like it will hold up better than 5 did. The support feels great for me and I like the extra lace loop option but the laces need to be a smidge longer for that. The toe box feel more narrow than previous models which is a huge disappointment. Also the tread...WTH?! It grabs every little pebble from the road. So if I jump onto a gravel path for a little bit, my shoes pick up everything. Get rid of this tread!!! TLDR: nice shoe. Widen the toe box. Find new tread.

Rated 2 out of 5 by from They ruined a great shoe. Please bring back the old Provision!!! Like other reviewers, this version is very disappointing compared to the older Provisions. These feel like they actually CAUSE me to pronate instead of reducing my pronation. The outer raised edge of the sole feels so rigid and puts pressure on the outer part of the sole of my foot, forcing pronation, and the arch support is nothing compared to old provisions. Two plusses: these are the best looking Provisions they've ever made, and they got rid of the awkward 3-finger lacing design that was really difficult to use. Unfortunately, I can't wear these shoes because of the pain from pronation. I will stock up on old models when I can find them or have to switch back to the Brooks Beast (a great shoe but inferior to the old Provisions, which are lighter and have a more comfortable toe box).
