Loved by Kara. Inspired by hope.

New stylish look. Same sturdy support. The new Paradigm 7 features a fresh and sleek redesign and a “hopeful” color that helps support a charity close to Kara Goucher’s heart.

Hey, good lookin’

This modern redesign features an engineered mesh upper for breathability and ghillie lacing for a confident and secure fit. Molded heel construction with plush detailing and premium lining materials encourages a soft step-in feel. Who knew support could be so sleek?

Light and luxurious

The new Paradigm 7 features 30 mm of updated Altra EGO™ MAX midsole foam. Light on the weight but heavy on the comfort, this midsole is responsive and luxurious with every supportive step. Our Standard FootShape™ Fit gives your toes the space they need to spread out and achieve natural foot position.

Support that’s supportive

Our unique GuideRail™ technology offers medial guidance, but only when you need it. Think of it like train tracks for your feet, encouraging natural foot placement. For every pair sold in Kara Goucher’s signature “Hope” color, Altra will donate $5 to benefit the Bachmann-Strauss Fellowship in Dystonia Research, a training program by The Michael J. Fox Foundation growing the global base of researchers studying the movement disorder dystonia.*
