Most Popular Backpacking and Hiking Shoes
If you have been hiking recently, no doubt you have seen many people wearing Altras. Founded in 2009, Altra Running shoes have taken the hiking world by storm and have quickly become the shoe of choice on the Appalachian Trail (AT), Continental Divide Trail (CDT), and Pacific Crest Trail (PCT).
- Cushioned ZeroDrop™ – Every Altra shoe is built on a ZeroDrop™ platform that positions the heel and forefoot an equal distance from the ground. This natural foundation aids in optimal alignment, cultivates better form, and encourages a low-impact landing.
- Foot-Shape Toe Box – allows the toes to relax and spread out naturally and the big toe to remain in a straight position for maximum stability and power
- Fit4Her™ Technology – Altra’s Fit4Her™ technology caters to the specific form of the female foot, which has a narrower heel and midfoot, a higher instep, a longer arch, and unique metatarsal spacing.
- TRAILCLAW™ – Canted lugs positioned strategically beneath the metatarsals to provide traction at toe-off.
