Ready to step it up a gear and tackle that ultramarathon you’ve been dreaming of doing, but your shoes… well they’re looking sad and not so up for the same challenge. CUE, The Altra Timp 1.5. Sitting between a max and mid-weight cushioned shoe, the softness has been designed to ensure maximal energy return, to keep you moving forward even when your brain is saying no. And with the softness of the midsole and the lightness of the upper – where other maximalists shoes often feel heavy and restrictive, like running on platforms – the Timp 1.5 remains distinctively light and flexible.
*Note: If you currently run in Altra, we recommend going a half size up for that perfect fit!
EVA midsole foam for durable cushioning
Natural Ride System (NRS) design includes a more natural, foot-shaped last, zero millimeter heel to toe drop, and metatarsal-specific shapes in the outsole to assist in proper foot mechanics and allow for more natural foot movement
Natural Foot Design follows the natural shape of the foot for ultimate comfort
MaxTrac Outsole uses anatomically-shaped sticky rubber that prioritizes grip and durability on uneven terrain
