All Altra road running shoes feature our iconic Zero Drop platform. The ‘Zero Drop’ was named to describe the level of even cushioning and perfect weight balance between heel and forefoot. Without the unnecessary heel cushioning of traditional running shoes, our Zero Drop shoes align your feet, back and body posture for less impact, reducing the risk of common running injuries.

Featuring a lightweight construction and durable outsoles, our road and race shoes from Altra provide the comfort and support you need to improve your running performance over any distance and speed.

With a range of cushion options for flexibility and comfort for runners across a range of disciplines, whether smooth park runs or providing low-impact landing for long distances, our Footshape running shoes with Balanced Cushioning will keep you comfortable whilst encouraging correct running form. Each Altra shoe also features our unique FootShape Toe Box design, which allows the toes to spread out and prevents your foot from being forced into an unnatural shape. This reduces the risk of nasty athletic conditions like bunions and hammertoes, and helps to maximise your performance by giving you a powerful toe-off.

Utilising Altra's Fit4Her construction, our women's road running shoes are designed specifically for the female foot with a narrower heel and higher instep. Combined with lightweight construction and a durable outsole, our road shoes with Altra's Footshape toe box and Balanced Cushioning will keep you comfortable and ensure proper form.

Whichever kind of runner, you can find the comfort, support, and versatility you need for your next run with our road and race shoes from Altra. With a selection of unique technology and innovative features, take your running to the next level.

“Get going. Get up and walk if you have to, but finish the damned race.”

Words spoken by our inspirational founder and one of Britain’s world class athletes Dr. Ron Hill M.B.E.  Ron was a runner, an innovator and a pioneer and strived to not only compete at the elite end of sport but create new apparel and improve clothing for all runners.

Ron’s dedication to the sport is epitomised in his world record run streak of 19,032 days. That’s running every day for 52 years and 39 days. A feat that is unlikely to ever be matched
