By Altra Founder Golden Harper Stability – High Cushion Why? A lot of people have asked why a running shoe company that is focused on injury prevention and improving running form through Zero Drop would release a highly cushioned stability running shoe ala the Saucony Omni or Brooks Addiction. My answer is because we are focused on injury prevention and helping people improve their running form! We want that Saucony Omni customer who has no interest in a minimal shoe to be able to put a shoe like the Repetition on and instantly feel the benefits of Zero Drop and a foot-shaped toe box.
Allow your little runner to develop healthy feet this summer! Many foot problems such as Bunions, Plantar Fasciitis, bone deformities, and arch problems begin in childhood due to shoes that deform & weaken the feet by pushing up in the arch, raising the heels, and squeezing the toes out of their natural position. The new Instinct Jr. has a cushioned Zero Drop platform and a youth specific Foot-shaped toe box that puts the foot in the same natural position it would be in without a shoe on.
To our amazing fans we would like to announce the arrival of the updated Instinct 1.5 and Intuition 1.5. These shoes feature the same great fit and feel that you enjoyed with the original. Everything under foot is the same with a slight addition of spring at the toe to provide a faster feel. The upper has been redesigned with a new updated mesh and look. With this launch the original Instinct and Intuition will soon be on sale at 25% off MSRP.
With the release of the Provision™ and Provisioness™ some have questioned the direction of Altra Zero Drop Footwear as of late. This would also include the release of The Stability Wedge insert. We want you to know that this in no way goes away from our core. We maintain Zero Drop™, Foot-Shaped shoes that help us to run better and run healthier. You will see us add cushion on some future models of shoes as well.
The long awaited day has now arrived. The Adam and The Eve have been shipping out for over a week now. Many of you have already received your pair. These are the ultimate in minimalist performance footwear at a price point that you can afford. I wanted to spend some time writing about my personal experiences with The Adam as a minimalist all use shoe. I have now worn my pair virtually every day since I received them from the factory last November and it has been put through the ringer.
Great reviews are still coming in about the Adam/Eve’s! Here’s what one tester said about the shoes: –Summary: Next to barefoot, Altra’s Adam is the closest thing to barefoot perfection I’ve yet experienced. — Look and feel: these look like well made shoes (I did not test enough to test actual longevity), with solid stitching, no loose ends, and great design that blends the essential design elements of the shoe (not to worry, they are minimal and keep out of the way) with a good looking shoe.
Take your everyday adventures to new heights and comfort with the Instinct Everyday. Using the original Instinct midsole and outsole, the Instinct Everyday™ dresses up the fit and feel you love. Enjoy the comfort, stability and injury-reducing benefits of a cushioned-Zero Drop™ platform and FootShape™ toe box whether you’re at the office or exploring on vacation. Shop Men’s Shop Women’s
