Originally inspired by tired feet at the end of the Badwater 135, the Altra Paradigm 4.0 is completely updated and revamped. An Altra EGO™ midsole for plush cushion and ultimate energy return; a knit upper for durability, and integrated Stabilipods™ for enhanced support. The same sweet GuideRail™ system is still here to help steer a tired or pronating foot, and with the addition of Altra EGO™ in the midsole and knit in the upper, this shoe is even more resilient, comfortable and cushioned than before.
The asymmetrical design with medial flaring increases support, while the max cushion offers relief from forefoot pain particularly Plantar Fasciitis and Neuromas.
FOOTSHAPE™ TOE BOX - Altra's FootShape™ Toe Box allows the toes to relax and spread out naturally and the big toe to remain in a straight position for maxium stability and power.
ZERO DROP™ PLATFORM - Every Altra shoe features a Zero Drop™ Platform that places the heel and forefoot the same distance from the ground for natural alignment and a low-impact landing.
FOOTPOD™ TECHNOLOGY - An outsole technology that actually maps the bones and tendons of your foot to help it bend and move naturally.
ALTRA EGO™ - Dual-Nature midsole compound with a responsive, yet soft feel for increased energy return.
GUIDERAIL™ - A feature found on our dynamic support shoes that acts like a highway guide rail to provide guidance only when you need it.
STABLIPOD™ - Acts as a stabilizing tripod by enhancing the three natural stability zones in your foot to help prevent excessive foot collapse or pronation.
