All of our Women’s shoes have Zero-Drop, a wide foot shaped toe box and are designed to work with your body the way nature intended it to run. Unlike other running shoes, Altra has produced shoes to specifically fit the shape of women’s feet.
Women have a narrower heel and midfoot, higher instep, longer arch and unique metatarsal spacing. While this has always been a fact of life, traditional running shoe companies have opted to make male and female shoe models virtually identical for years.
The Altra range is designed to be lightweight, whilst offering varying amounts of cushioning from light, moderate to maximum shoes to meet the daily demands of your running, from a weekend run in the park to a 100 mile ultra-run.
The lighter cushioned shoes give the runner a flexible, responsive feel whereas a maximum cushioned shoe is the most protective whilst doing the longer training miles.
