Altra Vanish-R Racing Shoes

The Altra Vanish-R is a lightweight, adaptable Unisex racing shoe which comes supplied with two insoles for a customisable fit and exceptional cushioning. (Please note both insoles are in the shoe when supplied). A breathable mesh upper creates a cool, dry and healthy environment for your feet while the ultra responsive, springy EVA midsole further enhances comfort. The outsole is comprised of laminated rubber pods for optimal grip and traction.


Breathable Mesh Upper

The upper of the Vanish-R has been constructed using a breathable mesh, to help eradicate the build-up of excess sweat and moisture to ensure your feet remain cool, dry and comfortable as you strive for the best results and performance. Additionally, cool air is encouraged to circulate, creating a drier, healthier environment for your feet to thrive. As well as providing moisture control, the upper is extremely lightweight, enhancing performance and offering a more streamlined fit to give you total comfort as you accelerate. The mesh offers a secure, glove-like fit to bolster security when running as well as an A-Strap support in the midfoot for extra stability.

Despite being relatively lightweight in stature, the upper features a FootShape toe-box to keep your feet protected from any debris or objects you typically encounter when running. This also encourages a more generous toe-splay and flexibility so you gain the maximum from your run. Two insoles offer a customisable fit and exceptional cushioning, giving you a plush, comfortable feel as you move.

EVA Midsole

A durable, spring EVA compound resides in the midsole of the Vanish-R to deliver ultra-responsive cushioning and superior comfort when running. This also helps attenuate shock and reduce the impact placed upon your knees and joints which minimises the potential risk of injury or discomfort. Working alongside the EVA midsole technology is a TPU Propel Plate which offers maximum energy transfer for maximum propulsion. The Zero Drop Platform is specifically designed to improve gait efficiency and deliver an all-around, enjoyable run.

Laminated Rubber Pod Outsole

Laminated rubber pods are situated throughout the outsole for optimal grip and traction to deliver a firm, assured footing when running. As well as improving the aforementioned grip and traction, the pods encourage flexibility and a full, unrestricted range of motion in all directions to enhance mobility when and where you need it the most. The rubber is highly durable and will stand the test of time to repeatedly deliver reliability as you clock up the miles.

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.

"A necessary move from minimalist shoes due to a foot operation and giving me the extra cushioning required. The zero drop keeps me on track with the forefoot strike I have transitioned to in recent years. Good width at the front for toes to spread."

"These shoes are Fantastic ! Exactly as described, I've had Altra shoes in the past very wide and comfortable but perhaps a little too cushioned and I've had many other makes and types of shoes over the years, including minimalist ones but these Vanish R are easily the best of all of them, just the right amount of cushioning , very light and breathable and you really can feel the Propel Plate helping you.
Happy to have found the perfect shoes for my first Marathon next month.
Thanks Altra!"
