Altra Superior 3.0 Charcoal/Blue
This size is currently sold out.
A Lightweight, Foot-Shaped Athletic Shoe
The Altra Superior 3.0 is a versatile and lightweight trail running and walking shoe that’s both comfortable and foot-healthy. This trail shoe features canted lugs that provide excellent grip on a variety of terrain and a subtle, yet noticeable lateral flare on the outsole lugs for increased stability. The Superior 3.0 also possesses a zero drop platform (i.e., a completely flat sole from heel to toe) to enable natural arch support and an anatomically appropriate toe box that encourages natural toe splay.
Allows Your Toes to Splay as Nature Intended
The Altra Superior 3.0 is the perfect companion for walking, hiking, trail running, backpacking, and off-road racing, as it allows your toes to spread the way nature intended and helps prevent many common running injuries, including shin splints, runner’s knee, and plantar fasciosis. This shoe also incorporates elastic overlays, which helps improve the durability of the upper, and a DuraTread outsole with TrailClaw.
Works Great With Other Natural Footgear
This foot-shaped shoe can be used in combination with Correct Toes toe spacers, Injinji toe socks, and Strutz foot pads or Pedag metatarsal pads to improve performance and restore foot health and function. The Altra Superior 3.0 is designed to improve toe splay, running form, traction, foot comfort, and foot protection. Each Altra Superior 3.0 shoe weighs about 8.0 oz.

To get the most out of your Altra Superior 3.0 shoes, please consider the following general sizing suggestion:
The Altra Superior 3.0 runs about a half-size small. Consider ordering a half-size larger than you normally would. For example, if you normally wear a women's US size 8 running shoe, consider ordering a women's US size 8.5 in the Altra Superior 3.0 instead.
Note: To create additional roominess within the shoe, consider removing the included (optional) shoe liner/footbed; this action does not, in any way, affect the performance of the shoe or foot comfort.
