The outsole utilizes the FootPod Technology that maps out the foot’s bones and tendons for the foot to flex naturally. With maximum flexibility, runners will also enjoy a responsive ride.
Blown carbon rubber outsole
Found in the outsole as well is the blown carbon rubber, which is also used in the Altra One v3. Aside from enhancing the overall traction of the shoe, it delivers a flexible and responsive ride.
Altra’s A-Bound Technology
The midsole utilizes the Dual Layer EVA that offers enough cushioning. This works hand-in-hand with Altra’s A-Bound Technology that provides efficient energy return and ample underfoot cushioning. It reduces ground impact and provides a springy feel to each step.
The shoe uses the brand’s InnerFlex Technology, allowing the foot to move freely and flex to where it wants to. This increases the runners’ speed for much better running performance.
One 2.5 Natural Ride System Technology
Altra uses its Natural Ride System Technology to promote natural foot movement by allowing the foot mechanisms to work naturally. Natural foot movement is attainable due to the 0 mm heel drop, deep longitudinal grooves and metatarsal pads.
Optimal running comfort was achieved through the Natural Foot Design found in all Altra shoes. This technology follows the natural shape of the foot, allowing the foot to relax and spread naturally. Aside from the comfort it gives, it adds stability and speed.
Breathable lightweight upper
The upper of the Altra One 2.5 was updated. One of the updates is the use of the Quick-Dry Air Mesh that is very lightweight. It is highly breathable, keeping the foot cool and dry. It also has the capacity to wick water away.
Improved fit and feel
Asymmetrical Lacing design follows the natural shape of the foot. The lacing design offers an improved fit and feel. The shoe also uses a 5-mm removable insole. The contour footbeds were engineered to help runners who need traditional support.
