Zero Drop: Places your heel and forefoot the same distance from the ground to encourage low-impact running technique, respects the natural alignment of the body and strengthens calf muscles that are weakened by raised heels.
Foot Shaped™: Allows your toes to spread out comfortably and naturally and for the big toe to reduce pronation. The result is improved stability and increased propulsion for optimal running performance.
Balanced Cushioning™: Places the heel and forefoot at the same distance from the ground to stimulate low impact when running.
InnerFlex™: Mesh grooves on the midsole for flexibility and lightness for speed and improved performance.
FootPod™: This exclusive outsole respects the morphology of the human foot and helps it to move naturally for optimised flexion, enhanced support and improved balance.
Fit4Her: Women's feet are anatomically different to men's. Women have a narrower heel and midfoot, higher instep, longer arch and a unique metatarsal spacing. Fit4Her technology means adapting each shoe to the unique shape of a woman's foot.
Dri-Lex: Fabric that combines water-repellent and hydrophilic fibres into a unique composite structure. The inside layer stays dry, while the outer layer acts as a micro-reservoir for sweat. Moisture is literally vaporised. Dri-Lex fabrics wick moisture quickly and keep the body dry.
Altra Ego™: Thanks to a clever mix of materials combining comfort, flexibility, rebound and resistance, the Altra Ego is the holy grail of cushioning. Its close to the ground cushioning and increased responsiveness gives you unequalled sensations. Altra Ego™ is designed for those who do not want to focus on comfort over dynamism.
Altra Ego dynamism enables maximum energy return to help you keep rhythm. This innovative material has the distinction of providing a better rebound, better energy return and better durability.
Unlike EVA midsoles, Altra EGO™ gains in performance when it heats up. In comparative tests with traditional running shoe foams this new cushioning has proven incredible durability, allowing it to maintain its cushioning properties and responsiveness throughout the life of the shoe.
