Altra Running is the only shoe company offering a FootShape toe box and fully cushioned Zero Drop platform. This award-winning combination places the foot in a natural position to help align the feet, back and body posture for less impact and greater stability. These innovations didn't start in a corporate office, but the back room of a Wasatch Mountain running store. The founders, elite athletes and running store managers, wanted a shoe that let you run the way you were born to. They noticed that the design of most running shoes was hurting runners more than helping them. Elevated heels promote high-impact landing and narrow toe boxes squeeze the toes out of their natural position. Runners around the world are now turning to Altra to transform their running experience and run the way they were born to – fast and comfortable.
