Dainty. That was my first thought on opening the box of Altra’s new racing flat, the Vanish-R. So dainty, in fact, that I found myself hoping these would work because they would make it so much easier to pack a carry-on. I was so excited to try these shoes, I immediately took them out for a test run.
The results were mixed, but bottom line: this is a lightning fast shoe. I like it. A lot.
