Why do you need new shoes now?
With so many shoe brands out there, you still wonder which shoes to choose, and do you really need a new shoe brand? This was a big question that came to my mind before I started "ALTRA". From the experience of a former American long-distance runner and the position of a running shop manager, I have been begging various major shoe makers for many years to make shoes that "can reduce heel strikes" in a "natural state". I came, but unfortunately I couldn't find a pair of shoes that I was satisfied with. After a while, I tried a number of shoes that had been scraped off the heel and modified to a "zero drop" state, and after a while I started recommending them to runners, so that there was a clear improvement for runners with disabilities and users who gave up running. I decided to make a prototype of "ZERO DROP". Shortly thereafter, the book "Born To Run" became a huge hit in the United States, and barefoot running became known to the public.
