Zero Drop running shoes have long been hailed as a game changer by running experts, which is why we’ve gone one step further: all Altra running shoes feature a fully-cushioned Zero Drop platform. Every single one. This innovative platform places your heel and forefoot at the same distance from the ground, helping to align your feet and promote a low-impact running technique. Zero Drop running shoes also help to strengthen your Achilles and lower-calf muscles, which can get weakened by running on elevated heels.
If you’re a seasoned runner, you’ve probably heard the term 'zero drop’ before. And if not, pull up a pew – you’ve come to the right place. Our Zero Drop running shoes allow your feet to remain in a natural position throughout your run. Without the excessive cushioning and elevated heels of most running shoes, Zero Drop styles help improve your performance and reduce the risk of injury.
Altra provide a huge variety of women’s Zero Drop running shoes, with every style following our Fit4Her design. The first brand to introduce gender-specific designs, Altra shoes are engineered to support the narrower heel and higher instep of women’s feet, giving you more comfort and a better-fitting shoe. We’ve got styles to suit every kind of running, including tough terrains, long-distance runs and everyday workouts.
