The story of Altra began in 1998 when its founders, Golden Harper and Brian Beckstead, met in high school, and they haven't stopped running together since. running and outdoor adventures have been a big part of their lives up to this day. The innovation of Altra extends beyond its 3-core base (Core 3), encompassing robust trail features such as GaiterTrapTM, TrailClawTM, MaxTracTM, DuraTreadTM, its unique approach to dynamic support features such as StabilipodTM and GuideRailTM, as well as midsole foam such as Altra EGOTM, Max-LTTM and A-BoundTM. Altrahas teamed up with trail runners, marathons, triathlons, thru-hiking and many more who have put their beloved Footshape's comfort on the podium and made their mark in all disciplines.

Altra Vanish XC Racer Running Shoes Yellow Black
Fast and Fun for shorter races or adventures on grass or light trail
Very light quick fun shoe which can handle shorter distance (up to 10 K) light to medium technical trail runs and breathes very well in warm conditions - Fits me like a slipper - slightly wide in forefoot and secure across my narrow heel - responsive mid sole but you will need to be strong in legs to get best out of shoe as not much cushion or support or propulsion off fore foot - The shoe is very light on the foot and it fly's if you push it hard... it is also great for agility sessions with low to ground stability and excellent grip - First experience with an Altra shoe and very happy with it ...have recently ordered a second pair.
