Altra's first true racing flat is here! The Vanish-R is extremely lightweight and flexible for a great fit and feel during your training and racing on the road or track. The lightweight, breathable knit upper will keep you dry and comfortable while the Propel Plate push-off feature in the midsole will help you spring forward with more power than you ever thought possible. If you've been looking for a ZeroDrop, FootShape racing flat, look no further. The Altra Vanish-R is sure to impress.
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.
super light, airy shoe. Great in warm temperatures and great to wade in the river.
The footbed with its anatomical shape is the best I have ever had in a sports shoe. Finally, my toes have the space they need to move freely. The sole has wonderful grip, whether dry or wet.
Very clear buy recommendation
superleichter, luftiger Schuh. Genial bei warmen Temperaturen und auch super, um mal eben im Fluß zu waten.
Das Fußbett mit seiner anatomischen Form ist das beste, das ich je in einem Sportschuh hatte. Endlich haben meine Zehen den Platz, den sie brauchen, um sich uneingeschränkt bewegen zu können. Die Sohle hat wunderbaren Gripp, egal ob trocken oder nass.
Ganz klare Kaufempfehlung
