(Logan, UT— March 27, 2017) Altra’s minimally cushioned trail shoe, the Superior 3.0, was awarded Editor’s Choice by Competitor magazine in the March 2017 issue. This shoe has been highly reviewed and well-loved by trail runners, backpackers, hikers and off-road racers thanks to its light weight, great traction and comfortable fit.
“Our wear-testers raved about the smart-fitting, foot-shaped toe box, sufficient cushioning, reliable traction and burly protection this shoe offers, plus the versatility of being able to run dirt paths, gravel roads or rugged, rocky trails,” Competitor magazine wrote. “It’s moderately light, sufficiently durable and eminently runnable. With all that this shoe offers, we believe it’s one of the best trail running shoes ever made.”
The Altra Superior 3.0 features an upper with quick dry mesh for maximum breathability and overlays for added security and increased durability. A subtle but noticeable lateral flare on the outsole lugs enhances grip and stability. The Superior comes with Altra’s trail-specific features, such as a TrailClaw™ outsole for maximum grip, a removable StoneGuard™ rock plate for extra protection and GaiterTrap™ technology for quick and easy application of a gaiter. The stack height is just 21 mm and weighs only 9.2 ounces for the men’s sample.
The Superior 3.0 also features Altra’s signature FootShape™ toe box and Zero Drop™ platform for a more natural, comfortable fit. The Superior, along with every Altra women’s shoe, is Fit4Her™, which means the women’s model is produced with softer cushioning on a female-specific last to account for the unique anatomical differences between men’s and women’s feet.
The Altra Superior 3.0 is available for $110 at www.AltraRunning.com and 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 FootShapeTM toe box and Zero DropTM platform. Since its founding in 2011, Harper and co-founder Brian Beckstead have grown Altra from one to 21 shoe styles, winning multiple Editor’s Choice awards and distribution in more than 50 countries.
