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.

Not for running

JH 11 months ago Verified Purchase

This is not a running shoe for those with pronation. It's enough support for walking that's it. Lacks durability and good stability. Compared to Mizuno or Asics this is way beneath. It's similar to wearing the adrenaline brooks runner (also not good for flat feet). Also size up by 1/2 because it fits small. For example l I normally wear 27cm according to size chart this is a 10.5 (which is accurate). I wear a 10 in other shoes Asics new balance etc.

Great for flat feet

Diamond C 1 year ago Verified Purchase

Tried this shoes on for the first time and ran in them and fell in love. They are very light weight. My feet are measured at 8.0 & the other 8.4 so at first I bought a 8.5 and found I needed just a little bit more space for how my foot splays in these shoes so I got a 9 and they are very comfortable. My first time running in the 9 I ran a 10miler in them and got a new PR. I did get a blister but after than 1 time they've been perfect. These are my chill running shoes. I'm flat foot and have never worn barefoot shoes but these didn't give me any issues. They were recommended by a fleet feet rep. I gave them a 4 because the colors are cool but they look like perry the platypus shoes lol

This is a great shoe if you need a wide toe box but not a wide shoe in general. I ordered up a half size to accommodate my custom orthotics and the shoes have been very comfortable for many types of activities.
