You've heard people talk about women's intuition, but you never realized they were talking about your Altra Women's Intuition 2 Running Shoe. It makes sense once you think about it this is a fully cushioned, zero drop shoe specifically designed for the nuances of the female foot. Between the gender bias and anatomically oriented last, you'll be running pretty for miles on end. The air mesh upper lets fresh air in and sweat escape to redefine what it means to have happy feet. No matter how much or how little cushion a shoe has, if you've never run in zero drop shoe before, going slow is the key to success. In addition to patience, Altra gives you two different insoles to ease the transition from traditional running shoes to zero drop trainers. The 5mm Contour insole offers some arch support to begin your quest for a level playing field. Continue strengthening your foot with a little less support, using the 3mm Strengthen insole. Once you've got your foot strong and supple, go sans insole for a truly zero drop experience. Two types of midsole material cushion every foot strike. A Bound on top puts some spring in your step and dual density EVA turns pounding concrete into pillowy perfection. To further the mission of supporting your feminine foot steps, the FootPod Outsole follows the treasure map that is bones, tendons, and muscles of your foot. You get traction on a variety of surfaces and your foot is free to move as your specific shape dictates.
