Named “Editors’ Choice” by Trail Runner and Runner’s World, the Altra Superior 2.0 features the same look and feel as its popular predecessor, plus new color options and sidewall reinforcement. The company’s proprietary Zero Drop platform ensures an ideal weight balance from heel to forefoot, helping you maintain proper form across long distances, while the FootShape toe box encourages natural toe splay for comfort and stability. Use the StoneGuard plate for protection from sharp rocks, and remove it when you’re crossing less demanding terrain. Finally, the TrailClaw outsole’s lug traction provides the ultimate grip in every condition—whether you’re trail running, hiking, backpacking, or off-road racing.
Note: At checkout, you’ll have your choice of color and size: Orchid/Silver or Poppy Red/Chocolate, available in select women's full and half sizes from 5.5 to 12. For an additional $16, you can add the Altra Trail Gaiters in Gray, Lime, or Orchid. Size options for the gaiters include small (fits women’s 5–11) and large (fits women’s 12).
When the going gets tough, keep your momentum going with these trail gaiters. Made from breathable, abrasion-resistant stretch material, they’re designed to protect your feet from dirt, sand, mud, rocks, and snow. These gaiters can attach to any Altra trail shoes, and are especially well suited for GaiterTrap-equipped shoes like the Superior 12.0. The strapless design allows you to change your shoes and socks without ever removing the gaiter.
Altra was born in the back room of a Wasatch Mountains running store, where owner Golden Harper met countless runners who complained of knee pain, shin splints, and other injuries from traditional pointed toe boxes and thick, heavy heels. A competitive runner himself, Golden began experimenting with shoe alterations to solve his customers’ problems. By melting the outsoles (in his trusty toaster oven!), he was able to remove the excess heel elevation for a more natural, relaxed foot position. The new platform design was dubbed Zero Drop.
