Altra Golden Spike Running Shoes

The Golden Spike is a celebration and tribute to the sport and history of XC running. A 5-pin spike plate lets you experience optimal grip on the course, while a convenient sockless design and hydrophobic mesh allow air to flow and keeps moisture low.


Hydrophobic Mesh Upper

Hydrophobic mesh uppers will encase each foot in breathable comfort. Lightweight and highly breathable for all-temperature comfort, the mesh acts as a lightweight second skin, providing a supportive and comfortable fit. Its perforated construction allows air to fully permeate the entire upper, letting your feet breathe when the temperature starts to rise or your training session heats up. The hydrophobic nature of the mesh works to wick excess moisture and sweat away from the skin where it can be easily evaporated so you can remain cool, dry and comfortable at all times. As a result, the hydrophobic mesh will create a perfect environment for your feet to thrive in. A sockless design also features of the golden spike to ensure ultimate comfort; the reduction in seams allows for an irritation-free fit so you'll never have to worry about blisters or chafing. Additionally, the upper construction features foot-shape technology which allows the toes to be relaxed within the shoe. It allows them to spread out naturally with the big toe remaining in a straight position for additional comfort, speed and stability. Completing the upper is a lacing system which locks down the midfoot to reduce in-shoe slippage so you can enjoy distraction-free strides.

A-bound Midsole

A thin layer EVA resides in the midsole to guarantee optimal cushioning and comfort with each and every stride. The EVA improves comfort, performance and responsiveness to deliver plush underfoot cushioning with ample reinforcement to lessen the impact placed on the joints during exercise. The midsole also features an A-Bound layer which sits directly under the foot to provide added underfoot cushioning. The A-bound layer reduces the impact of hard surfaces and returns energy return into each stride so you can run further and faster for longer. Completing the midsole is a zero-drop platform which cushioning levels at the heel and forefoot are the same. This allows the feet to have a more natural alignment with the ground and provides you with added stability so you can run faster and further for longer.

5-pin Spike Plate Outsole

The Golden Spike features a pin plate, which holds five pins in the forefoot to offer optimum grip. The 5 pin plate offers supreme grip on the track allowing you to propel yourself quicker than ever before. This lightweight outsole is also durable and tough, allowing it to take all the punishment you can throw at it. Completing the outsole are inner flex grooves which work to increase traction and grip of varied surfaces. The grooved have been cut out of the midsole to reduce overall weight and ensure traction. They offer a multi-directional grip that flex as you move for more speed and a better performance.

About Altra

Altra started in the back room of a speciality running store in the Wasatch Mountains, United States of America. The store noticed they were getting runners from all over the country visiting and complaining of knee pain, shin splints and recurring foot pain. One person in particular noticed this, Golden Harper the founder of Altra. Golden studied running injuries in college and combining his knowledge of injuries and a video analysis at his store made it easy to see and more understandable that traditional running shoes promoted poor form and excessive impact.

This switched on the lightbulb in Golden Harper's head and made him want to help runners achieve their best without pain as well as run and live healthy, happy and naturally. Early concepts were made in a toaster oven and were created to try a new way to reduce the injuries of Altra's customers. The toaster oven served a purpose of melting outsoles off of traditional running shoes and then Golden removed the excess heel elevation. This helped Altra to start creating zero drop running shoes.

The zero drop was just one of the steps taken to return runners feet to their natural position, Altra built a distinctive footshape toe box specifically to help alleviate foot problems. It also enhanced stability and comfort while providing a more powerful push-off.
