The first Altra shoe inspired by and developed with an Altra athlete. Meet the Paradigm 6, a shoe that is blurring the line between support shoe and everyday trainer. Altra Elite Athlete and two-time Olympian Kara Goucher’s input helped us take this shoe to the next level, adding an Altra EGO™ MAX midsole and slimming down the overall design while maintaining its key support features.
FOOTSHAPE™ TOE BOX
Allows your toes to relax and spread out naturally for more comfort and stability in uphill climbs and downhill descents.
Our Balanced Cushioning™ platform positions your heel and forefoot at an equal distance from the ground, encouraging better alignment, better form, and a low impact landing.
Grid-like grooves in the midsole allow your foot to flex while being lighter, for more speed and better performance.
An outsole technology that actually maps the bones and tendons of your foot to help it bend and move naturally.
A feature found on our dynamic support shoes that acts like a highway guide rail to provide guidance only when you need it.
Our Altra EGO™ Max midsole foam gives you all the light and luxurious performance with a little extra bounce and added durability.
