Altra The Paradigm | Elite Fitness NZ

Experience an all-new paradigm shift to running–max cushioning in a super light package. The Paradigm™ is a neutral training shoe that offers moderate stability and an impressive 34 mm stack height at an incredibly light 9 ounces. eva-Bound™ cushioning wraps up around the foot more on the medial side and acts as a guide rail to help prevent your foot from collapsing inward when it fatigues. The FootShape™ toe box and max-cushioned Zero Drop™ platform combine to place your foot in a natural position to promote proper, low-impact technique across long distances. A flexible outsole maps the bones and tendons of your foot to let your foot flex where it needs to, and features a unique outsole groove designed to naturally slow the rate of any excess pronation. Reimagine a max-cushioned run with the lightweight Paradigm.

    I decided to run a marathon on Sunday in the Paradigm by the way. Came in at 3:30, and they were really comfortable for the 42k distance. Cheers, Gareth

    Tested my new Paradigms with a 50km run today - impressed. Light, fast and great cushioning, enjoying the Zero Drop gearing. Keen to see how they cope with heavy mileage.

    Ran a 100 miler in these, 1 pair all the way, fantastic shoe. My first pair has nearly 1200 kms on them, I still use them for short ( less than 15 kms ) runs and my 2nd pair is up to 800 kms and still going strong.
