Read our review of the Altra Rivera 2


Feel the ground under your feet in the springy Altra Rivera 2.

One of the best Altra shoes, the Rivera 2 continues to provide a lightweight and snappy ride thanks to the Altra EGO™ midsole. For smooth transitions with every stride, it features Altra’s Innerflex grooves on the outsole to increase flexibility in the forefoot.

In our Altra Rivera 2 review, testers liked the enhanced ground feel underfoot thanks to the balanced cushion (or 0mm heel-to-toe drop) and flexibility. It’s a versatile running shoe that can be worn for both long runs and everyday training or speedwork.

Altra redesigned the Rivera to have a slimmed-down profile and a more breathable upper. The fit hugs your midfoot and heel but still leaves room for you to wiggle your toes thanks to Altra’s signature FootShaped toe box. The new mesh is lighter, more breathable and more flexible. It also features reflective stripes on the toe box and heel for added visibility. Plus, Altra re-engineered the heel collar padding for more comfort.

Run the roads with ease in the Altra Rivera 2.

What’s New

The Altra Rivera 2 has a new and improved upper that is more breathable and flexible. It also has a slimmer fit that hugs your heel and midfoot with a more padded heel collar.

Who It’s Best For

This is a great shoe for people who are looking for a lightweight everyday shoe with a lower heel-to-toe drop. If you have a narrower heel or slimmer foot, but still want Altra’s balanced cushioning and wide toe box, this is a great option for you.

Why You’ll Love It

Lightweight and bouncy, you will love how natural running feels in the Altra Rivera 2.

I work as a ER nurse and Altra came recommended by a friend of mine. the Rivera gives me much needed arch support and comfort all day long. the toe box keeps me supported but gives the room in need. breathable so my feet don't sweat. and they don't squeak on the floor as many shoes do.

These shoes are the only ones my son can run in because of previous for issues. They always come through for him in comfort and support. He is a cross country and track runner so he logs many many miles. So we have become repeat customers for the Altra Rivera!
