(Logan, UT – February 27, 2019) Altra’s popular HIIT XT is now available in the updated HIIT XT 2 and the new women’s exclusive HIIT XT Mid—the ideal shoe for gym workouts, heavy lifting and court sports.
The update on the Altra HIIT XT 2 improved the fit, function and overall comfort of the shoe.
New construction allows more flexibility for a better running experience, while the updated lacing system provides more stability for side-to-side movements.
As Altra’s only shoe with a sole specifically made for lateral movements, the HIIT is built for high intensity interval training, quick feet exercises, gym workouts and court sports like tennis or pickleball. The removable PowerSole™ drops the stack height from 20mm to 15mm for closer ground contact, ideal for squats and heavy lifting.
The upper features a two-tone design with fresh colors available for men in black/white, gray/orange and blue/lime, and for women in black/white, green/gum and blue/raspberry. The HIIT XT 2 retails for $110.
Altra’s HIIT XT Mid is a women’s-only mid top version of the HIIT XT. The Mid is made to function like a cross trainer but stylish enough for everyday wear. The upper is a soft custom knit design while the midsole and outsole are supportive and durable to tackle weightlifting, gym workouts and court sports. Altra’s Mid version also has the innovative removable PowerSole™ insole that drops the stack from 20mm to 15mm for squats or heavy lifting. The HIIT XT Mid retails for $120 and is available in a blush pink/white colorway.
The HIIT XT 2 and HIIT XT Mid are available now at www.AltraRunning.com or at your local specialty running retailer.
While working at a running store, Altra founder Golden Harper was frustrated that modern running shoe technology caused poor running form and had not decreased running injuries. His passion to create a shoe that followed the science produced Altra’s FootShape™ toe box, Zero Drop™ platform and Fit4Her™ female-specific shoes. Since its founding in 2011, Harper and co-founder Brian Beckstead have grown Altra from one to 30 shoe styles, winning multiple Editor’s Choice awards and distribution in more than 60 countries.
