By far my favorite running shoe! I run mostly on gravel roads and these protect my feet from all the rocks. Mine have over 300 miles on them and have held up great! Not too "grippy" when I have to switch to pavement every once in awhile. I went up a half size and they are perfect, no blisters, no black toenails, cushioning around ankle protects on tougher trails. Love these!

After years of knee problems, foot problems (bunions, Morton's neuroma) and arthritis that kept me out of shape and frustrated, Altra's Superior is a dream come true. My therapist used to instruct me to "activate my feet" but I couldn't -- because regular pointy shoes didn't provide any space for my toes to do anything! When I realized my Morton's neuroma doesn't bother me when I wear sandals (and my feet weren't constrained in a non-foot-shaped space), I started looking for shoes that were shaped like feet. I am a walker/hiker, not a runner, and I have had these on concrete, dirt paths, Rocky Mountain trails and Sedona mesas. Totally comfortable from minute one. I'm moving again, feeling great, and forever grateful to Altra.
