#EmbraceTheSpace: Altra is Here!

You've asked for it and now they're here... We're thrilled to welcome ALTRA to our store!

 Including the brand new Duo, only available at Feet Feet Pittsburgh!

So, why Altra?

FootShape™ toe box

Traditional running shoes feature pointy toe boxes that squeeze the toes out of their natural position –increasing risk of bunions, hammertoes and plantar fasciitis. Altra's FootShape™ toe box allows the toes to relax and spread out naturally and the big toe to remain in a straight position. This enhances stability and creates a powerful toe-off to maximize running performance.


Zero Drop™

Every Altra running shoe features a fully cushioned Zero Drop™ platform that places the heel and forefoot at the same distance from the ground. This natural balance aligns the feet, back and body posture for less impact. It also strengthens the Achilles and lower calf muscles that have been weakened over a lifetime of running on elevated heels.


Gender Specific

Women's feet are anatomically different than men's feet. Women have a narrower heel and midfoot, higher instep, longer arch and unique metatarsal spacing. While this has always been a fact of life, traditional running shoe companies have opted to make male and female shoe models virtually identical for years. Altra is the first shoe company to introduce an entire line of truly female specific shoes. Every last of Altra women's running shoes has been molded around the unique shape of the female foot. A shoe last is a 360-degree model of a foot used to create the shoe's heel, instep, arch and toe box dimensions.

Now it's time to try them on for yourself! With three models including the Torrin 3.0, Escalante and brand new Duo, there's something for everyone. Plus, you can ONLY get the Duo at Fleet Feet Pittsburgh!
