OK, just spoke to an Altra Running representative. The Instincts have been back-ordered till mid-July. They should begin shipping from the warehouse within a week. Now, that’s pretty good news. I’ve still not been able to do any serious running, although my legs are feeling much stronger. I can’t risk running in any of my current shoes. The Instincts had better live up expectations. (I’m sure they will.) I’ll be pre-ordering mine this week. Better to do so, too, so you can get yours as soon as the shipment arrives. I’ll be mostly on my bike till then.
