The Duo ist Altra's brand new max light neutral trainer. With 32 mm of cushion, it's cushion-to-weight ratio is hard to beat! A durable mesh upper with light TPUoverlays along with the cushy., comfortable midsole bring you the perfect lightweight, cushioned ride. The shoe is durable and cushioned and thanks to the decoupled outsole, it flexes and moves with your foot, not against it.
FootShape Toe Box Traditional running shoes feature pointy toe boxes that squeeze the toes out of their natural position—increasing risk of bunions, hammertoes and plantar fasciitis. Altra’s FootShape toe box allows the toes to relax and spread out naturally and the big toe to remain in a straight position. This reduces over-pronation, enhances stability and creates a powerful toe-off to maximize running performance.
Zero Drop Most running shoes feature elevated heels that promote poor form by encouraging high-impact overstriding. You were born without an elevated heel and Altra allows you to maintain a natural foot position throughout your run. Every Altra shoe features a Zero Drop platform that places the heel and forefoot the same distance from the ground. This naturally aligns the feet, back and body posture and encourages a low-impact landing.
The 'neutral shoe' or 'cushioning shoe' is equipped without pronation support (the lateral support of the foot). These shoes are therefore suitable for runners who have regular rolling behaviour, i.e. who do not roll their feet inwards or outwards when running. The neutral shoe can be used for competition, for fast training and for long endurance sessions. The damping may vary depending on the application: in order to achieve more direct ground contact during competition, it is advisable to use only a slightly cushioned shoe. When training on hard surfaces or for long distances, more cushioned shoes offer better comfort and protect the joints.
Shoes are brilliant and incredibly light. Very spacious, thanks to which I did not have any problems with my nails. They may not be particularly beautiful and look upward but for what they do on the run .... A very thick sole with zero drop perfectly cushions and strikes forward while straightening the figure. The material of the sole reminds me a little squash ball, as soon as it warms up it's just feel what it can do.
I run alternately in Hoka boots (3 models) and in Altrach duo
Recently, I prefer Altry
My weight is 90kg
Buty genialne i niesamowicie lekkie. Bardzo obszerne, dzięki czemu nie miałem ani razu problemów z paznokciami. Nie są może szczególnej urody i z góry wyglądają na rozklepane ale za to co potrafią w biegu.... Bardzo gruba podeszwa z zerowym dropem doskonale amortyzuje i wybija do przodu, jednocześnie prostując sylwetkę. Materiał podeszwy przypomina mi trochę piłkę do squasha , gdy tylko się rozgrzeje to dopiero czuć co potrafi.
Biegam na zmianę w butach Hoka ( 3 modele ) i w Altrach duo
Ostatnio zdecydowanie chętniej zakładam Altry
Moja waga to 90kg
