Women’s Altra Paradigm 3.0 Sample (subject to change)

Available July 2017 – MSRP: $130.00

New for 2017, the Altra Paradigm makes a return with few changes while maintaining its familiar max-cushioned construction. The Paradigm 3.0 will offer a few tweaks that should improve fit and breathability.

Staying true to Altra’s natural design, the Paradigm 3.0 will continue to offer a zero drop platform as well as a FootShape toe box to help provide optimal toe splay. Midsole tooling will remain the same to offer max cushion on the roads during high mileage training.

On the upper, an updated mesh design should boost breathability while new TPU overlays will add structure to improve fit and durability. An updated bunion window and guide rail will help enhance the shoe’s overall comfort.

Preliminary Tech Specs

Stack Height*: 32 mm Heel-toe offset: 0mm

Weight*: 10.3 oz (men’s size 9), 8.2 oz (women’s size 8)

*Production stack heights and weights may differ from the preliminary data listed here.

    About dang time. They have let the Paradigm die on the vine while all the other shoes got improvements. Wish they made it a 36 stack height.

    When you say update “Bunion Window” do you mean an area without overlays so a more comfortable in the “bunion” area? (To me the outside of foot a little behind the pinky toe-a big problem for me!)
