The midsole is 23mm all the way through from heel to forefoot. The zero drop is designed to align the feet, back and body for less impact and greater stability. This strengthens the lower calf muscles and Achilles which are less used in elevated heels, thus encouraging better running technique.
Altra shoes look different from many other running shoes because of their wide, foot-shaped toe box. This is designed so the toes can spread and give you better balance, better stability and less overpronation.
A-bound cushioning is made of recycled materials to create a bouncy layer under your feet for a high energy return. This latest version is much more flexible than its predecessor and the uppers are softer and more supple.
The Sandwiched Stoneguard system deflects rocks into the midsole to reduce stone bruising and give a smooth ride. The sticky rubber outsole gives great grip on wet trails. The strongest lugs are under the met heads for grip and forward propulsion.
Other innovative features include a descent rudder at the back which digs in on slippery downward slopes to keep you upright and a Velcro attachment for fixing gaiters.
