The Altra Girls' Instinct Jr. 1. 5 Shoe helps reduce future foot problems commonly found amongst runners. A Zero Drop platform places the heel and forefoot at the same distance to the ground for a natural stride, and the FootShape toe box puts her foot at a natural position whether she's running or standing. The Foot Strengthening footbed offers cush, while the A Bound EVA midsole attenuates shock and rebounds for a stable ride. Altra designed the FootPod blown rubber sole to reflect her foot's natural shape for an enhanced grip.
