Yes, I’m a bit late and I’m sure many of you have already covered a few kilometers in the Timp 5. However, I won’t be running any kilometers in this shoe myself, although it makes a very good impression on me. To be honest, I still have a good supply of shoes for this year. My Lone Peak 7 from the Camino Primitivo probably still has a few smaller multi-day tours in it.

My first impression of the Altra Timp 5

Personally, the Timp fits me really well in the heel area, but towards the front it is far too narrow for me. It is simply too narrow in the widest part of the foot. In addition, the shoe is simply not deep enough in the toe area. This is also the case in the Altra Lone Peak and Olympus 5 with my “crippled” feet. That’s the only reason I buy these shoes in size 45 instead of 44 1/2 like everything else. In the Altra Timp, I would probably have to buy a 46 for it to fit.

The shoe has gotten lighter, but that almost cancels it out for me since I have to buy the shoes bigger.

Even though the sole and the new upper material make a great and above all stable impression and I would like more cushioning on long days than the Lone Peak, I don’t know whether the Altra Timp 5 will conquer my foot. However, I said the same thing about the Lone Peak 6 until it conquered my foot. In any case, I’ll keep my eyes open to see if I can find a size 46 somewhere for under €80.

Unfortunately, I can’t say anything about the durability, which was probably a big problem with the Timp 4, as everything goes back to the dealer.
