Project Description

Altra Superior 2.0

Why mess with perfection? Last year’s award-winning favorite is back with the same look and feel as its predecessor, but with new color options and sidewall reinforcement. The FootShape™ toe box lets your toes relax and spread out in uphill and downhill trail conditions while the fully cushioned Zero Drop™ platform helps you maintain proper form across long distances. TrailClaw™ outsole technology features canted lugs beneath your metatarsals for ultimate gripping in gnarly terrain. A removable StoneGuard™ rock protection plate protects your feet from sharp rocks and is removable for use on less demanding terrain.

Pros:
  • Secure fit, and lightweight make it a great shoe for racing
  • Natural fit toe box allows toes to splay properly, building foot strength, and for more stability
  • Well cushioned for comfort over longer distances
  • Works seamlessly with Altra Gaiters to keep out debris
Keep in Mind:
  • Zero drop shoes may require a transition period when coming from traditional footwear
  • Soft midsole cushioning makes it less responsive than a firmer shoe
  • Outsole may not be aggressive or sticky enough for some runners in poor conditions on rough terrain
  • Upper is light and fragile on early versions
