DENVER (Nov. 8, 2021) — Altra Running, a leading innovator in the performance footwear category, has launched its Provision 6 road shoe. The Provision 6 brings new innovative features to the pavement, coupled with Altra’s tried and true technology, for a leap forward in its road shoe offerings.
Building upon the lightweight and compact Provision 5, the new Provision 6 features Altra’s EGO™ midsole foam cushioning, a proprietary blend of cushioning compounds offering a soft yet springy ride. Runners can expect more support and stability from this shoe, thanks to its dynamic support technology: a newly refined medial GuideRail™ and a molded heel cup. Provision 6 also boasts a simplified lacing system and refurbished upper-fit, providing an accommodating locked-in feel for all-day support.
“The Provision 6 is a union of Altra’s core features alongside a fresh approach to a fan-favorite shoe,” said Shanna Burnette, Community and Partnerships Manager at Altra. “We’re excited to further expand our road collection, encouraging our community and athletes to confidently go the extra mile and upgrade their road running experience.”
Like all Altra shoes, the Provision 6 features a Balanced Cushioning™ platform to position the heel and forefoot at an equal distance from the ground, along with the brand’s signature FootShape™ toe box, allowing toes to spread naturally for maximum stability and power. An Innerflex™ midsole provides grid-like grooves designed to maintain flexibility while Footpod™ technology maps the bones and tendons of the foot to encourage natural movement.
Altra was founded in the backroom of a small specialty running store in the Wasatch Mountains of Utah. Since the beginning, the goal has been to create innovative and purposeful running shoes that help people run more naturally. Altra’s unique platform includes a Footshape™ toebox that allows the toes to relax and spread out which enhances stability and encourages natural running form. Balanced Cushioning™ platform that positions the heel and forefoot at an equal distance from the ground, cultivating optimal alignment, better form and a low-impact landing. Altra is on a mission to unleash human potential by inspiring the world to move naturally. Be a part of our journey and follow along on Instagram, Twitter and Facebook. #altrarunning
