Altra | FWD Experience | Men's | White

By Altra

“The AltraFWD Experience is all about brand expansion, product evolution and continuing to create shoes that work for more and more runners,” according to Altra co-founder, Brian Beckstead. “Since the start, we’ve been all about creating what people need and sought to build shoes that work with your body from road to trail. We’ll never stop catering towards the Altra loyalists that are all about zero-drop, but we are super excited to expand our line-up and create a low-drop shoe that helps make Altra accessible to more runners – especially those that haven’t wanted to take the full leap into zero-drop.”

Pairing a rocker midsole geometry with an all-new 4mm heel-toe offset, the AltraFWD Experience delivers a smooth ride that effortless rolls the runner forward through their stride. The well-cushioned midsole features a compression-molded EVA foam that offers a comfortable and responsive underfoot feel without adding unnecessary weight. Meanwhile, the rubber outsole is designed with a  flex groove pattern that offers versatile grip and added flexibility.

The streamlined and stylish Engineered Mesh upper is highly breathable to keep your feet cool during longer training periods and warm-weather runs. Finished with the same roomy toe box that Altra is known for, the AltraFWD Experience is a comfortable, all-around running shoe for anyone looking for lightweight cushioning and an effortless ride during their daily runs or walks.
