Places your heel and forefoot the same distance from the ground to promote low-impact technique, naturally align body posture and strengthen lower leg muscles weakened from running on elevated heels.
FOOTSHAPE™ TOE BOX
Allows the toes to relax and spread out naturally and the big toe to remain in a straight position for more stability and a powerful toe-off to maximize running performance.
An outsole designed for your foot makes sense doesn’t it? Our road shoes feature FootPod technology that maps the bones and tendons of your foot to provide a natural, easy flex. This sets us apart from the predetermined flex of other shoes that force your foot to move the way the shoe does.
This built-in full-length wedge slopes down from the medial to lateral sides of the foot to provide extra support for those who need it.
This innovative midsole technology acts as a stabilizing tripod by enhancing the three natural stability zones in your foot to help prevent excessive foot collapse or pronation. Featured on guidance shoes.
Running Shoes - Zero Limits
Altra was founded with a desire to find a better shoe for road and trail running.
How do I clean my Altra shoes?
Simply spray, wait, and scrub! In our opinion, the best way to clean our shoes is to simply spray them with cleaner, let them sit for a few hours, and then scrub them with a scrub brush in the sink or shower. Once you are done cleaning, stick a fan on them or stuff them with towels or a shoe saver product such as Stuffitts®**. Because the midsole foam tends to break down if soaked in water for a prolonged period of time, we don't recommend machine washing.
We have also found that a great way to clean and remove odor from barefoot style shoes such as the Adam & Eve is to use original Dawn® soap*. Soak the shoes in a water/soap solution for a few hours and then rinse. You may also wash the Adam & Eve in a front-loading washing machine with mild detergent. Always air dry. To speed the drying process and prevent odor, try using a shoe saver product such as Stuffitts®
