Altra - FootPod™
Altra FootPod
For maximum flex and responsiveness, this outsole maps the bones and tendons of the human foot. With canted lugs mapping your foot, this unique outsole provides a natural, all-purpose traction system for a variety of surfaces from road to treadmill to dirt paths.
Altra FootShape
Altra FootShape
Traditional running shoes feature pointy toe boxes that squeeze the toes out of their natural position –increasing risk of bunions, hammertoes and plantar fasciitis. Altra's FootShape™ toe box allows the toes to relax and spread out naturally and the big toe to remain in a straight position. This reduces pronation, enhances stability and creates a powerful toe-off to maximize running performance.
Altra InnerFlex
Altra InnerFlex
Grid-like grooves in the midsole allow your foot to flex while being lighter, for more speed and better performance.
Altra Zero Drop
Altra Zero Drop
Most running shoes feature elevated heels that promote poor form buy encouraging high-impact overstriding. You were born without an elevated heel and Altra allows you to maintain a natural foot position throughout your run. Every Altra running shoe features a Zero Drop™ platform that places the heel and forefoot at the same distance from the ground. This naturally aligns the feet, back and body posture and encourages a low-impact landing.
