Altra was founded in the backroom of a small specialty running store in the Wasatch Mountains of Utah. Since the beginning, the goal has been to create innovative and purposeful running shoes that help people run more naturally. Altra’s unique platform includes a Footshape™ toe box that allows the toes to relax and spread out which enhances stability and encourages natural running form. Balanced Cushioning™ platform positions the heel and forefoot at an equal distance from the ground, cultivating optimal alignment, better form and a low-impact landing. Altra is on a mission to unleash human potential by inspiring the world to move naturally.
