Altra Paradigm 2.0 Running Shoe - Women's
AltraParadigm 2.0 Running Shoe - Women's

Your legs won't train themselves.

Dive into the meaty part of your training plan with Altra’s Paradigm 2.0 Running Shoe and feel confident you won’t be running straight towards an overuse injury. Designed specifically for endurance training, the Paradigm comes with a 34mm pillow of EVA cushioning underfoot to absorb impact and is built on Altra’s proven FootShape platform and women’s-specific Fit4Her last. It’ll loyally see you through your hardest workouts with a design that works to accommodate your foot’s natural shape and biomechanics.

This year, Altra slightly altered the Paradigm’s mesh uppers to improve breathability, but left the rest of the shoe’s construction unchanged from the 1.5. While your toes stretch out and splay happily each time you hit the pavement, the Paradigm will flex along points that match the tendons and bones of your foot. The roomy uppers work to eliminate pressure points without veering into sloppy territory, while the stable Zero Drop platform underneath encourages a natural, stable mid-foot landing whether you’re on mile one or mile 20.

  • Get the most out of your long runs with this ultra-plush shoe
  • Airy mesh uppers with welded seams prevent pressure points
  • Soft midsole places your foot in a natural position
  • Lace-up closure allows for a streamlined fit around heel
  • Altra’s innovative designs focus on placing your foot in a natural running position

Got these for a suffering friend :)

  • Familiarity: I've used it several times

I bought these for a friend that was struggling with pain in her feet for her long distance runs and she had this to share:

This is the first Altra shoe I have tried. My feet were feeling awful after about 4 miles and these Paradigm came highly recommended. So I tried them and oh the difference! Right off the bat I could tell that my feet had just met their "sole" mate! Love!

These shoes were very helpful cause I have foot problems so it was easier to walk and they are very comfortable. My supervisor Melanie suggested these shoes and it was a great choice.
