Here’s a sneak preview of three new Altra Zero Drop shoes in our pipeline: Altra King MT, Altra Superior 3, Altra Instinct 4 (Intuition 4 for women).

Altra King MT

The Altra Zero Drop King MT is made for runners who embrace mud, rocks and burly mountain climbs. This shoe features a Vibram outsole with 6 mm lugs designed for optimal lateral breaking, medial gripping and maximum traction in wet, loose and rocky conditions. The King MT also introduces the new Altra Ego™ midsole (also on the Escalante model), a new compound with high responsiveness at a low weight. A flexible, wrap-around StoneGuard™ rock plate adds extra protection underfoot, and the one-directional friction heel lining keeps your foot securely in the shoe. The King MT has the most supportive upper of any Altra with TPU overlays, durable polyester Ripstop fabric and a Foot Lock Strap (that doubles as a lace keeper!) to lock your foot into the shoe on steep ascents and descents.

Ideal Uses: FKT Running, Off-Road Running, Peak Bagging, OCR, Fell Running

Altra Superior 3

The award-winning Superior is back, with a few small but significant changes. The Altra Superior 3.0 now has the accurate sizing that you need. To increase durability in the upper, elastic overlays are now included for added security. A subtle but noticeable lateral flare on the outsole lugs increases grip and stability. This classic trail runner with a cool new design has got you covered on all surfaces.

Ideal Uses: Trail Running, Off-Road Racing, Hiking, Backpacking

Altra Instinct/Intuition 4

Again, your favorite Altra neutral do-it-all shoe returns, this time with notable and exciting upgrades designed to improve your running experience. This mid-cushioned favorite now provides even more protection and support. A decoupled heel promotes a soft landing while extra rubber wraps up to protect your toes. A modernized upper with engineered mesh makes for a more comfortable and secure fit. And an updated midsole design keeps these Altra classics looking fresh and fast.

Ideal Uses: Running, Long Distance Walking, Cross Training
