Altra Superior 5
The Altra Superior 5 promises that your next trail run will be nothing short of superior.
With an updated upper that offers a secure yet breathable fit, the Superior 5 makes light work of technical trails. Along with an improved fit, the Superior 5 upper also allows hook-and-loop gator attachment to further protect you from water and debris while you run.
A fan-favorite feature of the Superior 5 is the removable StoneGuard rockplate that allows the shoe to easily transition from soft surfaces to more technical terrain. The rockplate works with Altra’s specially designed MaxTrac outsole to provide multi-directional traction and protection from uneven terrain. Altra Quantic midsole foam creates the responsive, nimble feel signature to the Superior 5.

Loved the Altra Superior 4.5...thought I had found my next shoe! However, when I couldn't find the 4.5 again, I went with the 5. Minor design changes have made the shoe very irritating. For one, the tongue bunches up. But the worst part are the extremely long, smooth laces. I found myself retying the laces three times in one hour! They slip, and must be quadruple knotted to stay short enough to not drag. I would think for high level running/trail shoes, the least they could do is have solid, workable laces.
