Altra Zero Drop Shoes

Run the Way You Were Born To Run

Have you heard of Altra and the Altra Zero Drop shoe?
Altra is a global brand for passionate runners, hikers, and outdoor enthusiasts. Altra shoes’ designs allow for a more natural running experience.

Footshape™ Toe Box

Example of the Altra Footshape Toe Box

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.

Balanced Cushioning™

Example of Balanced Cushioning

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.

Fit4Her™ Technology

Following years of tinkering and testing prototypes, Brian and Golden were ready to share their innovations and present a new option to the running world. Altra’s unique core technologies—FootShape, ZeroDrop, and Fit4Her—made their debut. The first shoe hit the market in 2011. Altra is known for much more than its Core 3 foundation. The company has mastered rugged trail advancements (GaiterTrap, TrailClaw, MaxTrac, and DuraTread) and redefines dynamic support with Stabilipod and GuideRail. Their unique midsole foams (Altra EGO, Max-LT, and A-Bound) set Altra apart.
