Altra modellen 2022

Looking for Altra shoes, but can't decide which model you need? We lend you a hand.

The 3 core values ​​of ALTRA.

1: FOOT SHAPE Toe-Box: Altra's FootShape™ toe box allows the toes to relax and to spread and move naturally (the Altra shoe has the natural shape of a foot). This keeps the big toe in a straight position for maximum stability and power. It also reduces overpronation and improves stability for overall comfort.

2: BALANCED CUSHIONING: Every shoe from Altra is based on a Balanced Cushioning™ platform. This means that the heel and forefoot are the same distance from the ground, also known as zero drop. This natural base optimally supports alignment, balance, promotes better posture and encourages foot drop with less impact. It encourages an upright posture for the natural alignment of the body!
3: FIT4HER technology: Altra's Fit4Her™ technology is specifically designed for the specific shape of the female foot, which features a narrower heel and midfoot. , has a higher instep, a longer arch and a unique space for the metatarsal bone.
