Superior 3.5

9.2 oz. (261 gr.)

Heel Drop

List Price
110 US$


Here is a shoe that has made most runners “best of” lists so far. The Superior features Altras trademark zero drop platform and foot shaped toe box in a lightweight and fast 9 ounce package.

While it may lack some of the rock protection and outsole traction of heavier models, the Superior earns points for absolute comfort and a a great fit that feels dialed in enough for technical terrain while staying comfortable for hours on end. It's the kind of running shoe you forget about during a run.

The criticisms of the Superior include the softness and flexibility of the midsole which some runners may need to transition into. Size has been an issue with this shoe as well and sizing up is recommended. Also, many runners have experienced excessive wear of the outsole lugs on dry and rocky conditions.

Who is it for?

This remains a great shoe for runners looking for that minimalist experience while still having enough protection for an ultra marathon.
