The Altra Provision 4 is the innovative running shoe that brings a natural feel to the concrete jungle. A stability shoe, it’s built to provide overpronators with a natural cycle, helping to prevent injuries and optimise performance. They’ve completely overhauled the Provision since the last model, adding, alongside Altra’s classic Zero Drop Platform, FootShape toe box and GuideRails support system, a unique new arch feature that uses proprioception to slow pronation and neutralise your gait cycle. This means you’ll only get support when you need it and it won’t change your natural stride, making it a great option for everyone – even neutral runners. Providing confidence, support and performance.
Altra founders Golden Harper and Brian Beckstead met in high school in 1997. They've been running together ever since. Even as young kids, these two pursued the sport with passion and commitment, both for fun and in competition. Golden ran his first marathon at age 10 and then set an age group world record two years later.
The Runner's World Best Debut designation confirmed Altra was on the right track—and runners agreed. Altra was just warming up and has continued to receive praise for their breakthrough innovations. Altra collected several editor's choice awards in addition to many other awards, including best winter trail shoe, best traction, and comfiest ride.
