THEY'RE HERE! THEY'RE HERE! Altra Running shoes are hot off the truck!
Every Altra shoe is built on a balanced cushioning platform that positions the heel and forefoot at an equal distance from the ground. This national foundation encourages optimal alignment, better form and low-impact landing. Whether you prefer max cushion, low cushion or something in between, balanced cushioning lets your feet move naturally at every step. There is a difference between men's and women's feet and Altra has done the research - women typically have a narrower heel and midfoot, a higher instep, a longer arch and unique metatarsal spacing so they've designed their women's and men's differently unlike most companies. They take pride in the shape of their shoes because they are shaped like feet! Their shape allows toes to spread out naturally and lets your big tow remain in a straight position. This encourages improved stability, power and most importantly, added comfort.
Check out the new additions to our lineup below.
The Lone Peak 4.5 is the updated version of our original trail shoe features a trimmed down layer that offers added flexibility and comfort and a simplified lacing system for improved micro-adjustment. Like all previous versions, the Lone Peak 4.5 includes all of the Altra trail shoe must-haves like StoneGuard™, MaxTrac™, Balanced Cushioning and the FootShape™ toe box. To top off the update, the midsole foam formula has been tweaked just enough to give you a more resilient feel underfoot.
The Lone Peak 4 Mid Mesh features a newly revamped mesh complete with the 4-point GaiterTrap™ to keep dirt, dust, sand and debris out as well as enhanced durability and breathability. The outsole is revamped with multi-directional lugs and decoupled TrailClaws. Enjoy the enhanced breathability of a mesh hiker with the same comfort and design as before, and with Altra's signature FootShape™ toe box and Balanced Cushioning platform you can continue to hike comfortably and balanced.
The Timp 2 gives you everything you love about the previous Timp models and more. The updated model offers an overall trimmed down design with an updated fit for overall better performance, making it an always-ready trail running shoe. The outsole is designed to improve biomechanics and flexibility while the tweaked fit and lacing system work together to provide a better locked-in feel. The resilient, flexible cushioning in the Quantic™ with InnerFlex™ midsole adds comfort at every step while the MaxTrac™ outsole gives you the extra grip you need for any trail or terrain
