The Altra Running Women’s Superior 4.0 is a responsive trail running shoe that even includes a removable StoneGuard rock plate to provide protection and versatility for varying terrain. It does all that at an average weight of just over 13 ounces per pair!
As with all Altra Running shoes, the Superior 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 seamless upper offers excellent breathability and dries quickly if it does 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). The shoe's Altra Quantic midsole comfortably cushions your foot. Keep the StoneGuard in for challenging terrain that could otherwise bruise or cause underfoot discomfort or remove it entirely to shed weight when conditions don’t call for its protection.
The shoe has a stack height of 21 mm. The durable MaxTrac sticky rubber outsole delivers excellent traction on a wide array of surfaces and integrated TrailClaw lugs dig into soft terrain.
Sold in pairs and your choice of color options, the Altra Running Women’s Superior 4.0 trail running shoe is available in women’s full and half sizes.
