Altra was founded by elite athletes who wanted shoes that let you run in a natural way. Looking at virtually every other running shoe on the market they soon realised that nothing out there was actually foot shaped. Toes were being compressed by narrow toe boxes and weren’t designed to let you run in the way that you were born to.
After much research and hard work Altra developed a foot shaped shoe with Zero drop. This encourages the wearer to run in a low impact way and help prevent injury. Altra now produce some of the most comfortable running shoes on the market today.
