Step into the future with the Paradigm 5
Places your heel and forefoot the same distance from the ground to encourage proper, low-impact form throughout your trail run.
This innovative midsole technology acts as a stabilizing tripod by enhancing the three natural stability zones in your foot to help prevent excessive foot collapse or pronation. Featured on guidance shoes.
The GuideRail is a non evasive support feature in the medial heel. Just like a highway guide rail, it only provides support when you need it. The GuideRail can help give you the extra guidance you need to stay on the road longer. Featured on guidance shoes.
FOOTSHAPE™ TOE BOX
Allows the toes to relax and spread out naturally and the big toe to remain in a straight position for more stability and a powerful toe-off to maximize running performance.
Lace up any of the new Altra EGO shoes and evolve into a more explosive runner, one with quicker turnover and a new attitude towards crushing limits. Get more durability and more responsiveness with the latest in performance shoe technology and let your shoe do more of the work with increased energy returning rebound for a fresher and faster you.
