An essential for both new runners and seasoned pros. Road running shoes are your classic running shoe – the ones you grab for your morning run, wear to the gym and throw on when you’re dashing out to buy milk. Choosing the right pair is an important decision, so we’re here to break down the sciency bit.
All Altra road running shoes feature our iconic Zero Drop platform. The ‘Zero Drop’ was named to describe the level of even cushioning and perfect weight balance between heel and forefoot. Without the unnecessary heel cushioning of traditional running shoes, our Zero Drop shoes align your feet, back and body posture for less impact, reducing the risk of common running injuries.
Each Altra shoe also features our unique FootShape Toe Box design, which allows the toes to spread out and prevents your foot from being forced into an unnatural shape. This reduces the risk of nasty athletic conditions like bunions and hammertoes, and helps to maximise your performance by giving you a powerful toe-off.
We have a quality selection of road running shoes for both men and women. Because women’s feet are anatomically different to men’s, all our women’s shoes follow our Fit4Her gender-specific design. This gives a more tailored level of support for the narrower heels and longer aches of women’s feet, providing greater comfort and improving performance.
With a selection of unique technology and innovative features, you’re sure to find shoes that helps you take your running to the next level.
