Altra Superior

My latest live broadcast (I go live 8:30pm every Wed) was a review of the especially wide-fitting Altra Superior 4.0 trail running shoes which I’ve been enjoying wearing recently.

In this film I compare them with the Altra Superior 3.5’s (which as you can see from the film I have really worn to death!) and other Salomon, Inov8, Hoka and Scott trail shoes I have. This is followed by a Q&A session from the audience and from my awesome Patreons.

I love the wide fit – see the toe box is very different from my other shoes below, which I go through in this film.


However they are zero drop (no heel stack) so my calfs tighten after more than about 1 hour running in these. I’ve added a 5mm Sidas Gel Heel Pad to help with this and it is working well so far! Watch my review for other wide-fit shoe brands that don’t have zero drop, and how the Altra toe box compares with most other trail shoes.
