Altra was founded on the belief that running was for relieving stress, not
putting more stress on your body. That runners deserved a shoe that could help
them run healthier, run further, run faster, and run for a lifetime.
These shoes are what became Altra.
From humble beginnings in the back of a running store, they were tested and
refined in running's toughest conditions.
Now, Altra can be seen at every level across the globe.
To us, running has never just been running.
It's an escape, a challenge, a community... it's a slingshot for the rest
of your life. Runners didn't need another running shoe. What they needed
was so much bigger.
