Ultramarathon Running Store > Shoes > Altra


Altra's FootShape™ toe box allows the toes to relax and spread out naturally and the big toe to remain in a straight position for maximum stability and power. Gives the big toe space for a more powerful toe-off. Reduces overpronation and enhances stability for all-around comfort. Every Altra shoe is built on a Balanced Cushioning™ platform that positions the heel and forefoot an equal distance from the ground. This natural foundation aids in optimal alignment, cultivates better form, and encourages a low-impact landing. Promotes upright posture for natural body alignment. Provides a level platform for support, balance, and protective cushioning.

4 reasons to wear Altra
- Altra's foot-shaped toebox design allows the toes to spread naturally, reducing crammed toes and providing a stable platform
- The flat heel-to-toe midsole (zero-drop) prevents heel striking, reducing the impact force on landing
- Each female Altra shoe is designed on a specific last to fit the specifications of women's feet
- Models with moderate, high and maximum cushioning to suit every road or trail ultra runner, no matter the body type
