Product description Altra Superior 4

Altra Superior 4 is a rail running shoe with which you can practice a mountain race. Its design has many benefits, it is light in weight and allows you to execute agile movements. On the instep, the version includes engineered mesh that allows air to pass to keep your skin dry and fresh for longer.

This men´s sports shoe features a Quantic midsole that is cushioned for unmatched foot comfort for a longer time. As for the heel it is rounded to allow better grip of the foot as well as a secure and comfortable fit. The cushioning system of this trail shoe encourages proper foot positioning and reduces the impact generated during pronation.

On the inner sole you will find the FoodPod technology that is responsible for outlining the bones of the feet and tendons to help them to bend comfortably. Outside, it includes multidirectional earmuffs that allow greater grip, preventing you from skidding. The height of this sole is 26 millimeters. Its weight does not exceed 300 grams.


The Superior 4 takes an already lightweight, fast trail shoe and makes it even lighter. The upper has been completely redesigned in a wrap-around style for added security and support; the midsole features Altra’s proprietary Quantic™ foam, while the outsole is now made of our sticky MaxTrac™ rubber. To top it off, the rounded heel and improved lug pattern is made to fly down the trail with ease and speed.

Excellent and expected item

-

shoes looks great and feels super comfortable. not sure if it feels very durable .. but time will tell. regarding delivery, it took a few more days than estimated deliver time. i understand it, because of covid-19 but you should update, it or give a wider range.

Altra superior 4.0

-

Well shopping. The shoes are comfortable until first use. In connect with affordable price I´m very glad with purchase in RunnerINN

my second pair

-

Too fragile and hurts when you hit sharp object on the side of the feet but so light. Very fun. I do not expect them to last more than 400km before they need a repair. Sole get slippery in the mud... not a mud shoe. LOVE the wide toe box !

Fragile but fast and fun

Fragile but awesome shoes

-

Speedy light trail running shoes. Too fragile and not enough protection on the side of it causing some pain when hiting sharp objects, but in general those are my fun shoes to run with. But they won't last more than 400km (it's my second pair).

What a cruel shoe!

-

Runs a lot and had many different shoes. Alta is definitely the best shoes I have had! Especially because they allow a natural running step which is fantastic. It will be a correct running step with great speed. The shoes are comfortable and soft and the entire forefoot fits without squeezing. Ran a trail race of 51 km with new shoes without getting any abrasions. Fantastic shoes!

Rock solid performance

-

Comfortable from first use. The shoe gets 5 stars. The RunnerInn team failed to include my house number on the package so it was down to the quality of the postman to recognise my name. Otherwise this package would have gone missing. RunnerInn gets 2 stars.

Great trail shoe

-

I already knew the Altra brand but I wanted to try on a pair of shoes of this brand to approach the world of trailer running. The shoe is really comfortable like all the rest of the rest ... it seems to have only a sock on its feet ... highly recommended to all Fast and accurate delivery

Great

-

Altra Superior 4 arrived safely! Immediately after the arrival of the new model, reservations for 4.5 started, but there are discounts on the old model, and we are satisfied with the function and price of the product. After all the toe box is overwhelmingly wonderful!

アルトラ大のお気に入りです。

-

軽量で、裸足に近い感覚が良いのだと思います。足の指で地面をつかむような。アルトラが日本でももっとメジャーなブランドになることを、心より願っています。

The right product a little late.

-

I chose the same size as the superior 3.5 model and the shoe feels more snug and lighter than its predecessor. The delivery time took a week longer than the original estimate was. On the other hand, long delivery time does not matter when the price is affordable.

Altra superior 4.0

-

I go from brooks to altra. Much freer feeling of feet, more natural stride. Damped compromise and stability just right, yet I weigh 86kg.

I'm a tester, would they work well for me?

-

I am a pronator.

Hi, this a neutral shoe. Thanks for your question

Altra superior 4.0

-

I had already bought the superior 3.0, they look better on a lot of aspects, but they evacuate the heat much less than the 3.0, a shame considering the summer that is coming

Fast delivery of fantastic sneakers

-

Excellent quality, comfort and grip. Very light without losing quality. I became a fan of Altra.

Excellent

-

After several years trying many shoes and thousands of euros thrown in the trash, I finally found the perfect bamba for me. perfect for those of us who have a wide foot cup, it does not make any type of chafing, apart I decided to choose the drop, 0 and it was a good decision, foot freedom and comfort.

Awesome

-

Amazing sticky grip

Molt bé!

-

Estic super content de les sabates, per davant superamples. From the first day you liked them, weigh less than the Altra towers that had and poison with the plants, which are powerful, in case you had molta roca. Perfect!

Perfect running shoes

-

Perfect running shoes. The shoes works perfectly for fast running or sort sprints.

Altra quality

-

Altra fan (zero drop, toe box ...); Light shoe, top for short trail, super comfortable like all models of this brand (lone peak, olympus, king Mt and escalante tested). Provide a size above.

Arrived!

-

The size was the same as that of Superior 3.5, so there was no problem, and 4 seems to be in good shape and I am looking forward to using it.

Finally I found the right shoes for my

-

good shoes ! i don't want to buy another one, because of these are wery light weight, comfortable and have enough space for my toe ( i had injury). zero drop ,absolutely perfect, it's good compromise between cushion and "barefoot" feeling . i didn't use stone guard yet and i was running on rock surface, everything was good, only mebay one issue, sole is slippery on wet rocks, but i felt it only by running up hill. could by mebay stronger upper (cordura ets.) for longer durability on hard trail runs but overall i'm satisfied with the shoes.

Comfortable and light

-

comfortable and light sport shoe. good buy. good product.

Finally arrived!

-

It took me more than a month since I ordered because of the influence of corona, but it doubled my joy! Immediately, I'll go to tore run tomorrow.

Finally arrived!

-

It took more than a month due to the influence of corona, but the joy when it arrived was doubled. I will wear them tomorrow and go on a trail run.

Quality always on top

-

trail shoes zero drop, and large toe box like all altra, with little cushioning for this superior model. excellent quality.

Perfect zero drop, trail shoes

-

Light and spacious shoes for both short and long trips. I love the Altras Tow box concept, they give fewer blue nails and happier feet :-)

What else do you want?

-

Lightweight and comfortable shoe, responsive but at the same time soft. Suitable for any type of foot, if I really have to find a possible improvement is the position of the holes to allow the laces to pass, I would add one towards the tip of the foot to make the feeling even safer. Grip not too aggressive but good especially in the dry. With good running technique and a featherweight I can also carry over long distances.

Light and fast

-

Super light and comfortable. Perfect for my quick outings! A good complement to my Altra Line Peak!

Instant favorite

-

Best competition shoe trail for wide feet. Lightweight and responsive.

Good product

-

I already had a Superior 3.5 and I no longer plan to change brands or models. I have a wide foot and it is the only shoe that fits these characteristics, and the guardstone gives it a plus for my type of trail running. Today the Superior 4 have arrived, but due to Cov19 I can only use them to go up and down stairs. At the moment they look good, fit more than 3.5 and are more beautiful. We'll see how it is in the mountains when we can.

Great shoe

-

Great shoe and finally reliable sizing from altra. Big improvement on earlier versions where side walls were too weak and blew out. Fine with flat feet too. Not too much material gathering in the upper when cinched down which is usually the problem for us flat-footers.

Toe-box, zero drop, light and confortable

-

Love it on trail running, for workout or small mileage. Great grip everywhere except on wet rocks.

Will i slide? !!!

-

I just received these sneakers, I opened the package, I came across some sneakers more beautiful than those in the image. I take off my shoes and put my feet inside them ... first contact ... hummm cute, wide, space for the fingers to feel at ease, just one thing missing: Running with them to guarantee what I felt when I put them on I expect them on the tracks! Ahhhh came earlier than expected, good service!

Comfort for drop, 0, robustness, attention to size

-

Shoes seem VERY comfortable in medio and forefoot but too large compared to the size comparison table with other brands! Look robust despite their lightness!

Top

-

Significantly improved compared to the previous version. This Superior 4 is without a doubt the best trail shoe in the Altra range. The Torin 4 which uses the same Quantic foam is also excellent.

Great product

-

Very good product, incomparable comfort, lightness. Super racing sensations!

Good Firm Trail Shoe For Wide Feet

-

The shoe is very light. With a very thin sole. It comes with an additional insole (which adds some weight) to guard against sharp rocks. I find the shoes comfortable but rather firm. The sole is very grippy. There is lots of room in the toe box for wider feet. The heel and mid foot locks in nicely but I find I have to re-tie the shoes after 10k or so. The laces are super long for some reason (I double knot them). Overall a good shoe. 4.5 stars.

Great zero drop, shoe for mileage

-

after improving my running form into pose running my mileage has gone considerably up and since i usually run in minimal shoes it has put extra strain on my feet. Hence, I have been looking for a light shoe with a large toe box, zero drop, and just a little more cushioning than minimal shoes, and the altra superior 4 fits the bill perfectly.

Review

-

Very nice lightweight trail shoe. Fantastic fit with lots of room for the toes. Also gives a lot of support under the entire foot. Great grip on Dutch sandy soils, a bit slippery on wet roads.

Light, durable and comfortable

-

These are a great, light and above all - black. Very comfortable and responsive. With lightness comes reduced features, however. The midsole seems to be holding up ok compared to the lone peak the outer sole is also holding up well given the materials. No unreasonable wear with about 400km in them now. Very surprised by the durability given the weight.

Exstremly good running shoes

-

very good running shoes, and a good fit for the feet

Altra Shoes is Amazing

-

Tried these shoes on a rocky trail, worked very well And it was stable.

Altra SUPERIOR 4

-

Great shoes for trail running. I usually wear 46 and I bought Altra size 46 1/2, which fits great.

Light

-

It is light and easy to run!

First Altra shoe - can't wait to get more

-

This shoe I find really well made and finished. The wearing and running experience is so comfortable. Once I found my correct size I look forward to wearing and running in these shoes. It's the level of comfort that most strikes me I think, which for me includes things like great traction, stability, easy lacing, perfect hold on my foot, plush ride, the wide toe box of course and of course the zero drop.

Usual comfort

-

My first trail running shoe, the usual comfort from altra.

Upper altra 4

-

I am very happy with the upper Altra 4. They are very light. It's my first experience with the drop, 0 and I love it. I like the toe box a lot, my toes thank you a lot. a super product !! thanks

Top alter analysis 4

-

A very comfortable shoe that fits perfectly wide foot, good sole grip, ideal for roads and fast trails, does not go badly on asphalt, so it can be used from home to the mountain.

Amazing shoes

-

Love the altra’s and the 4.0s are no exception! Was very happy with the service and delivery of the shoes! Had read a lot of reviews about things not getting delivered on time or facing issues with service. So I was a bit reluctant to order but seeing the price I budged and honestly no regrets what so ever!!

Upper altra 4.0

-

From the first race the difference of footprint is noticed, it is a joy to notice the freedom in the toes and as at the end you do not end up with the loaded twins as it happened with my previous shoes

Altra superior 4

-

75 km for the first outing! to run in slippers is not bad! I find that the sizes at Altra have evolved. a fair bit with a 42 I chose a 42.5 that are really great. the top

Omnivore

-

Perfect shoe for mixed terrain but I choose another shoe for pure technical path. Used this on UTMB and it worked perfectly there.

Good shoes

-

Actually I purchased Loan peak 4 . But product out of stock. So customer service help me to change the model and send together with others in same shipping. This Altra Superior 4 is very light!! But strong Very comfortable because I choose over 1/2 spec.

Altra in your line

-

Good quality, the evolution 4 does not disappoint, the interior more careful and the exterior more robust.

Natural running

-

Perfect shoes, suitable for natural running. Stable, light and comfortable!

First outing in the forest and I did not have pain in my feet. super comfortable in the decent. A good grip on the mountains and ideal for the fast race.

Upper altra 4

-

approximately 50km running through the mountains with them and nothing negative to say. Good quality, zero drop, to facilitate a natural running technique, and a very wide last that will thank your feet.

Altra Superior 4

The Toe box is wide and superb comfortable.

On the shoe

-

A top-of-the-range shoe for mountain racing.

Perfect

-

Super service, fast delivery and the coolest shoes. Have nothing to complain about, only recommendation from here

#1 Choice

-

Love these! They are #1 choice for trail runs lasting more than two to three hours. However i find myself using them for shorter. perfect amount of cushioning and stability

Altra Superior 4

-

Received item in good condition. The Superior 4 is very light weight, great cushioning n responsive midsole. Ideal for a fast trail run. True to size

The perfect minimalist shoe

-

Shoes received promptly as indicated during the purchase. Shoes conform to the description. Very satisfied with the service and the quality. The price is top. The Altra superior 4 are ideal for the practice of the minimalist Trail on medium distance. To recommend. Top cushioning while keeping an ultra light and flexible floor. A great product.

Super!

-

Great sneakers. The most for cross-country running. Lightweight, comfortable. In a word, super!

Altra Superior 4

-

They maintain the Altra standards of confort. Very flexible and light providing a feel of speed. It provides good grounding and I mean by that a good perception of the trail one is running on. I would be a bit sceptical about grip and I am affraid it is not great even on dry ground and dry rocks. Haven't tried yet but would feel very confident wearing those on soft and wet ground.

Good shoes!

-

I am from Japan. It is cheaper than purchasing in Japan even considering the shipping cost. I finished the race with the Superior 4 on 60K at the Fair Trail, held on 199.6 / 30. I challenged the race in a brand new condition. It was a race in the rain, but there wasn't anything that would drain well and make the shoes heavy. The grip was good even in the rain. Next time I want to wear Superior 4 comfortably on a sunny day!

Very good

-

Very good trainers. Soft, comfortable, goodlooking. I used them for running the same day I received them and I didn't feel any problems. Would recomend to everyone.

Altra Superior 4

-

another great shoe by altra, the usual great toe box shape and zero drop ,in a low and light package ! my favorite for under 10k runs.

OTTIME SCARPE ARRIVATE PRIMA DEL PREVISTO

lightweight zero drop ,trail runner

-

i purchased these after moving to a slightly different area and also increasing my weekly mileage so i needed something slightly more substantial than the merrell vapor glove 3's that i had before. the shoes are extremely comfortable, and build quality looks good, i've currently run roughly 80 miles and can see no wear at all. the sole provides ample grip on trails and gravel tracks alike, without being so lumpy as to feel squishy when running any road or pavement sections. the zero drop ,promotes a natural neutral running style and would take some getting used to if you're transitioning from a more classic style shoe, but has been a lovely and forgiving shoe for me as i had sometimes suffered from lower calf pain with my previous shoes. fit-wise these shoes fit slightly smaller than all my previous shoes, i would possibly recommend selecting a half size smaller than used to, especially with the large toe-spread section at the front of the shoe. all in all, i would recommend this shoe to anyone running trails, hopefully the build quality holds up for many miles to come!

They are super comfortable, my partner spends a number 46 and weigh very little, is very happy with this purchase
