As the lightest weight shoe within the Altra road line up, the One series has been an excellent option for anything from road racing to uptempo running. Although well revered for being lightweight and flexible, the One’s minimal construction has also hindered its durability. This time around, Altra has revamped its design to extend the longevity while maintaining a go-fast experience.

Unlike the One 2.5’s flimsy mesh upper, the Altra One v3 will feature updated material with TPU overlays that should provide added structure and upper durability. The added overlays are strategically placed to help limit irritation without hindering breathability.

In terms of outsole construction, the One 2.0 (and 2.5) featured two blown rubber pads on the inside of the forefoot and one on the outside of the heel. As a result, this left most of the midsole exposed to wear from the road. To limit this and increase traction, the One v3 will offer more blown rubber pads along the heel and forefoot. Despite a weight increase, the Altra One v3 should continue to provide a fast feeling experience in a zero-drop package.
