The award-winning Altra Running Men’s Superior 2.0 is lightweight, responsive trail running shoe that even includes a removable StoneGuard rock plate to provide protection and versatility for varying terrain.
As with all Altra Running shoes, the Men’s Superior 2.0 has a FootShape toe box that differs greatly from the aggressive taper of traditional running shoes. This design lets your big toe remain in a straight position while allowing your other toes to spread naturally. This broader cut reduces the risk of bunions, hammer toes, and plantar fasciitis. The shoe also utilizes a Zero Drop platform (height of the heel and the forefront are the same) that encourages a natural stride rather than elevating the heel or manipulating foot position. This is meant to promote better alignment and a more natural posture while on the move which in turn lessens impact.
The Air Mesh upper offers excellent breathability and dries quickly should it become wet. Minimal overlays enhance stability without adding bulk or reducing breathability. An integrated GaiterTrap allows for the easy attachment of Altra gaiters (sold separately). An EVA midsole cushions your foot and a layer of Abound cushioning with gridded InnerFlex grooves underfoot enhances responsiveness. Keep the StoneGuard in for challenging terrain or remove it entirely to shed weight when conditions don’t call for its protection.
Weighing roughly 8.7 ounces per shoe, the Men’s Superior 2.0 has a stack height of 21 mm. The TrailClaw sticky rubber outsole delivers excellent traction on a wide array of surfaces.
Sold in pairs and your choice of color options, the Altra Running Men’s Superior 2.0 trail running shoe is available in men’s full and half sizes.
