(Logan, UT — August 23, 2018) — Altra’s max-cushion Duo road shoe was awarded “The Best Workout Shoes of 2018” by Women’s Health magazine. With a 31mm stack height and a weight of 7.9 ounces for men and 5.3 ounces for women, the Duo is the perfect pairing of maximum cushioning at a minimal weight.
A thin, mesh upper keeps the Duo incredibly light and breathable, while allowing easy drainage of water. A pillow tongue made of Nubuck suede prevents “lace bite” on the instep, for a secure, but comfortable, fit. A blown rubber outsole with an injection molded midsole work together to keep the Duo’s base light, yet durable and flexible. Runners love this combination for long runs to ultras, while those who work long hours on their feet, such as medical professionals, also appreciate the lightweight stack of cushioning.
The Altra Duo is available now for $130 at www.AltraRunning.com and 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 and Zero Drop™ platform. 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.
