The Superior 4 takes an already lightweight, fast trail shoe and makes it even lighter. The upper has been completely redesigned in a wrap-around style for added security and support; the midsole features Altra’s proprietary Quantic™ foam, while the outsole is now made of our sticky MaxTrac™ rubber. To top it off, the rounded heel and improved lug pattern is made to fly down the trail with ease and speed.

Staff Fit Comments: "Light weight, with minimal cushioning this shoe is surprisingly comfortable. The nice wide toe shape and snug heel fit makes the Superior a fun trail shoe for the longer runs or when you want to push the pace up hill and over rocks and logs. The upper is highly breathable although your feet do get wet quickly in this shoe. This is as close as you can get to running bare foot in the woods and with the optional rockplate to protect your feet you will really be at one with your surroundings, without getting a stick through your foot! The unique toe shape of Altra’s make them a versatile fit for lots of different foot shapes and the moulding of the last to reflect men’s and women’s feet adds to the comfort. You may find it takes a bit of getting used to having all that space around your toes at first but after the second hour of running you’ll be very happy with that amount of room!" ~ Allison
