  • Heel

    With Altra's 'Balanced cushioning', the heel offers abundant support. This design places your heel and forefoot at an equal distance from the ground, encouraging optimal alignment, superior form, and a low-impact landing.

  • Uppers

    The uppers are light and breathable. I would like to see the material being a little tougher to prevent rips but the toes are well protected with a double layer to stop your toes from coming through. Plenty of room in the toe box too.

  • Outsole

    The Altra Vanish Carbon provides good grip in the roads with a hard wearing outsole. They also seemed to cope well with track sessions even with the exposed foam.

  • Midsole

    Crafted from Altra EGO PRO foam, the midsole is designed to be exceptionally lightweight, enabling effortless long-distance runs while delivering optimal cushioning at every step for an effortless experience.


I think if your a fan of Altra running shoes you love these as a race day option that will give you that little bit of extra propulsion thanks to it rocking technology that you do not get in a typical Altra running shoe.

For the price I would like to see a full carbon plate in the future but the Altra EGO PRO foam is really responsive making it a fun but fast ride.

They won't be my go to race day shoes but I do really like them for tempo runs and track sessions when I want to pick up a bit of speed in training.
