From inspiration to innovation to an evolution.

Altra Running was founded on an innovative approach to running shoes.

An approach that has kept us going for a decade and aims to keep you running for a lifetime.

An approach that ultimately inspired and continues to inspire every single Altra shoe.

"We ran cross country and track, we practiced hard,
we worked at the running store, and we just totally became shoe nerds."

- Brian Beckstead,
Co-Founder Altra Running

"For the first time in my life, I’m wearing a normal feeling running shoe.
I don’t feel like the shoe is messing with the way I’m running."

- Golden Harper,
Co-Founder Altra Running

"It just got to the point where we’d show up at a local road race and
almost half of the people at the starting line had their shoes with the lacing skipped open in the front half of the shoe."

- Golden Harper,
Co-Founder Altra Running

What's next?

We’re going to continue to innovate.

Continue to inspire that break-free feeling of getting out there, far from expectation and constraint.

We will continue to earn new perspectives by reaching new heights.

We will continue to blaze trails and explore new roads. And continue to show up unapologetically ourselves as we encourage all who run to do the same.
