Altra Superior 4.0 - Men’s


The new Altra Superior 4 takes an already lightweight, fast trail shoe and makes it even lighter. Featuring Altra’s Quantic midsole foam and MaxTrac rubber, the Superior sheds some weight and adds some grip. The upper has been completely redesigned in a wrap-around style for added security and support. It’s seamless, stretchy in the toe box, and supportive in the midfoot and rounded heel. The improved lug pattern is made to fly down the trail with ease and speed. Like the rest of Altra's trails shoes, the Superior 4.0 is equipped with the velcro gaiter attachment and includes a removable stone guard to protect your feet from rocky trails.
