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.

Altra Paradigm 6.0

Very cushy and perfect for my ortho inserts. Also a bonus that they fit exactly the same as my Altra Paradigm 6.0 in Mountain Purple color.

My favorite distance and every day shoes!

I was looking for a neutral shoe the ad good support and I found them! Altra is a great brand and the team at Fleet Feet helped me find the right size and style for my goals. This shoe is balanced, has lots of room in the toebox and cushioned while being supportive. it checks all the bosses is for comfort but also comes in incredible fun colors! I can’t see myself living without this shoe. Thanks Fleet Feet!

Incredibly Comfortable

With their cushioned soles and wide toe box, these shoes are amazing. Just went to San Francisco for the weekend and walked for miles in them. It was like walking on a temperpedic mattress: so comfortable! I can't recommend them highly enough. Thanks for the suggestion Fleet Feet!

Has possibilities

The widened toe is good for those with issues in that area which I do have. However, the shoes don’t have the cushioning that I need to keep my feet from aching when I walk. I will be trying another shoe & maybe even go back to Hoka since they did more of what I apparently need.

Great for old feet!

I'm very active -- I dance, I walk -- but at age 78 with bunions, hammer toes, and an artificial ankle, most athletic shoes are too snug in the toe box. Fortunately my podiatrist suggested Altra, and I'm thrilled! When my shoes first arrived, I tried them on and didn't want to take them off. They're cushioned, yet supportive, and the extra space in the toe box gives me the comfort denied by every other shoe I own.
