Embrace The Space! Traditional running shoes feature pointy toe boxes that squeeze the toes out of their natural position – increasing risk of bunions, hammertoes and plantar fasciitis. Altra's toe box allows the toes to relax and spread out naturally and the big toe to remain in a straight position. This enhances stability and creates a powerful toe-off to maximize running performance.
Zero drop shoes for the experienced, athletic distance runners. The soles are inspired by barefoot running ethology - the uppers are foot shaped and not shoe shaped. If you are new to zero drop we recommend a set of strengthening and flexing exercises prior to distance running.
