Available December 1st, 2016 – MSRP $110.00

Originally released in 2013, the Altra Superior series has become known within the trail running community for its lightweight cushioning, versatile traction, and unique fit. The Superior 3.0 will offer small tweaks for improvements in durability and stability.

In order to provide reliable cushioning with a nimble feel, the Superior utilizes a slightly modified EVA/A-Bound combo midsole that works with a removable stone guard for rock protection. On the outsole, the Superior 3.0 will continue to provide a small, heel flare for stability on descents and small modifications to lug placement help increase traction.

Staying true to Altra’s natural design, the  Superior 3.0 offers a Zero drop platform as well as a FootShape toe box to help provide optimal toe splay. A stronger air mesh upper in this new version will increase durability and protection.
