The award-winning Superior is back! This already popular shoe was such a hit in the reinforced 3.0 version that Altra has added even more durability in the upper as well as a 4-Point GaiterTrap system. If you love the lightly cushioned, speedy Superior with its tough DuraTread outsole and sleek profile you'll love the 3.5 more than ever.
FootShape Toe Box
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 over-pronation, enhances stability and creates a powerful toe-off to maximize running performance.
Most running shoes feature elevated heels that promote poor form by 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 shoe features a Zero Drop platform that places the heel and forefoot the same distance from the ground. This naturally aligns the feet, back and body posture and encourages a low-impact landing.
A bouncy compound made of recycled material that protects your foot from hard surfaces and increases energy return.
The Fit4Her technology means Altra customizes every women's shoe to the unique anatomy of the female foot.
Grid-like grooves in the midsole allow your foot to flex while being lighter, for more speed and better performance.
An innovative hookand-loop tab that secures your gaiters to your trail shoes to keep dirt and debris out.
Canted lugs positioned strategically beneath the metatarsals to provide traction at toe off.
Durable outsole rubber made to last long and offer great grip on both tame and technical terrain.
The sandwiched StoneGuard offers flexible protection from rugged terrain by deflecting rocks for a smooth, stable ride.
