Every part of your foot is supported in the ultra-comfortable and max-cushioned Altra Paradigm 6.

When you first slip on the Paradigm 6, you’ll notice your toes can stay straight and have extra room to wiggle due to Altra’s FOOTSHAPE™ toe box design. As you lace up, a mesh material wraps around the medial (inner) side of your foot to hug your arch and prevent excessive pronation. This is thanks to Altra’s INNOVARCH™ and GUIDERAIL™ technologies that work to support your arch and heel to give the foot natural stability and guidance.

Once you're up and on your feet for your walk, run or long day at work, the Paradigm 6 uses a balanced bed of Altra EGO Max Midsole™ cushioning for a soft and bouncy ride. Plus, the Paradigm’s zero-drop heel-to-toe difference takes pressure off the ball of your foot and encourages a softer landing while walking and running.

Reach for the Altra Paradigm 6 when you are looking for a plush and supportive experience out on the road or during long days on your feet.

Best Shoes For Overpronaters and Wide Feet

Roberto M 1 year ago Verified Purchase

I have wide feet collapsed arches and I over pronate. These are by far the best long distance shoes I have ever owned. I’ve tried other brands such as Hoka and Brooks in wide and I still had a bit of a pinch on my pinky toe. Due to Altra Paradigm 6 being foot shaped my toes have the right amount of room. I ran my first marathon in one of these and I am currently on my second pair. Good job Altra!

Altra Paradigm 6 a winner

Tony M 1 year ago Verified Purchase

Best shoe I have for my big ol' Flintstone feet this side of the Altra Rivera and the Altra Torin 5. A true blessing when I struggle to find good fitting shoes. and now the Paradigm 6 gives me the support on the days when I am not in my best most efficient form. Keeps me from rolling out and in.

This is the ONLY store you should be going to for running shoes. You won't find a staff as friendly and knowledgeable as this one. I am not even a runner and I still get VIP treatment!!! They are so patient and honestly just want you to be happy. If you go anywhere else...well that's your mistake. If they don't have something in your size or color they will get it...just for you. Hands down the best customer service you are gonna get!!! Valerie I can't thank you feet have never been happier!!!

Great shoes out of a great shopping experience!

Michael J 2 years ago Verified Purchase

I've recently started walking 3-4 miles a day and needed something better than my habitual annual New Balance purchase on Amazon. Fleet Feet provided expert technology-driven guidance that steered me to 3 great options in less than 20 min. An excellent shopping experience.The Altra's are the best walking shoes I've ever owned and the inserts I've purchased have completely eliminated foot and calf fatigue from may daily ritual.

Great Shoe!

Randy W 2 years ago Verified Purchase

Bought this shoe early enough to have broken in for the Peachtree Road Race and it didn't disappoint. Was super comfortable and did well. I would recommend this shoe to a friend.
