Paradigm is a maximally cushioned and supportive road running shoe from Altra. A thick midsole made of Altra’s responsive yet soft EGO material absorbs shock and returns energy. Paradigm stabilises pronating feet with the help of Stabilipods in the midsole which act as a tripod by enhancing the foot’s three natural stability zones. In addition Guiderails around the edge of the midsole prevent tired feet from pronating and steer the foot along its most efficient pathway.


Zero drop and foot-shaped like all Altra running shoes - the wide toe box allows the toes to splay giving you improved proprioception and keeping the toe in a straight position for better stability and a powerful toe off. The zero drop platform keeps the heel and forefoot on the same level – the natural position for your body. This promotes a low impact technique, naturally aligning body posture and strengthening lower leg muscles.

Paradigm is designed asymmetrically with flaring on the medial side to give extra support to tired or weak feet.

The upper is a seam-free knitted mesh that stretches where needed for a comfortable sock-like fit.

Paradigm is a great choice for the runner who wants a super cushioned and supportive training shoe for any distance running including long and ultra-distance or just for long days on your feet.
