Altra are a running brand born at the back of a mountain running store by running store owners and athletes themselves. Altra zero drop running shoes are a result of experimental running shoe alterations designed to give back a natural running style. The resulting 'zero drop' is where heel and forefoot are the same distance form the ground, so you'll notice a lack of elevated heels prone to causing a high-impact landing. All Altra running shoes are fully cushioned and for help on the different running shoe soles do not hesitate to call us.
Women's feet are different anatomically, so Altra have designed every part differently to cater for a naturally narrower forefoot and much more. The womens Altra running shoes cater for the narrower heel & mid-foot, longer arch length and even spacing of metatarsal bones! For help and advice on womens running shoes, even in general, contact us.
