Available January 2017 – MSRP $120.00

Over the years, the Altra Instinct (men’s version) and Intuition (women’s version) have provided runners with a moderate cushioned, zero drop training option with fantastic versatility. With the new Instinct/Intuition 4.0, we expect a similar experience to past versions, but with a more modernized upper and midsole design, providing enhanced comfort and cushioning.

To give the shoe an improved upper feel, the 4.0 utilizes an engineered mesh design that goes back to the 1.5 last. This should provide a soft and breathable experience along with a more dialed-in fit. The shoe also utilizes added rubber that wraps up the toes to provide increased protection from rocks and debris. For a sleek, fast looking design with added protection, this trainer features a new EVA midsole with a decoupled heel for a softer underfoot feel and an A-Bound top layer for high energy return. Paired with a full rubber outsole for increased durability and an inner flex design for added flexibility, the Altra Instinct and Intuition 4.0 offer a reliable blend of performance and cushioning.
