Altra Paradigm 4.0

The Altra Paradigm 4 takes the Paradigm to an all-new level. Now, the Paradigm 4 takes that cushion and takes it to an all-new level both in terms of max cushion as well as features. It keeps the shoe in that guidance category through our Stabilipod and the GuideRail. So, the GuideRail really wraps that medial side of the foot supporting it from pronation and just providing additional support. We have added Stabilipods throughout the shoe to keep your foot naturally stable using the stability of your foot. We have added our EGO midsole compound previously found in the Escalante. As well as a really unique knit upper. This shoot is very very comfortable. It’s stable. It’s really great for rocking out those miles. The Paradigm keeps all the same features that make Altra unique. ZeroDrop platform, FootShape toe box, as well as our Fit4Her last. The midsole continues with our Innerflex, so it has flex grooves on the inside and really allows that big toe to engage which enhances the the stability as well. So this shoe is in our Dynamic Support category. We’re really excited about this new Paradigm 4. This shoe you can really just let comfort be your guide


  • Two questions. 1. How is the toe box on this version ? I've noticed a trend on Altra's recent shoes of a smaller toe box. ( Except the Timp's, which have the BEST toe box. ) 2. Sizing. I've read online reviews that the Paradigm 4.0 runs small. True ? Thank you.

  • Really looking forward to get it in Europe …..!!!

  • amazing shoe!! Waiting it at Greece-thank you altra!!

  • Will these fit the same if I wear a size 12.5 with Torin 3.0?

  • Great shoe. An improvement of the version 3. I like the increased stability and the cushioning is better and feels more stable than previous models.
