Updates to Dynafit Alpine Pro

  • The Dynafit Alpine Pro is a running shoe that’s made for off-road adventures. It features a non-aggressive upper design to accommodate the natural movement capacity of the foot and to retain a lightweight appearance. A quick-lace system allows the wearer to adjust the fit without resorting to menial tying and looping.
  • Underfoot cushioning is provided by a full-length ethylene vinyl acetate midsole. It makes sure to carry the foot throughout the activity and attenuate the impact energy that’s generated by the foot-strike. A rocker shape enables a smooth transition through the gait cycle. Also, there is a protective plate in the midsole that staves off surface abrasion.
  • The external section of the sole unit makes use of the Vibram® Megagrip, an aggressive layer of rubber that’s meant to provide sure traction on both dry and wet surfaces. Multidirectional gripping nodes heighten the grip capacity of this shoe.

Size and fit

The Dynafit Alpine Pro was designed using the standard measurements. It is capable of accommodating the usual preferences of consumers when it comes to length. Widthwise, the options are D – Medium for men and B – Medium for women. The curved last and the form-fitting upper accommodate the natural curve of the human foot.


The Dynafit Alpine Pro features the Vibram® Megagrip, which is a trail-ready compound. It has a robust construction that resists the abrasive nature of the surfaces. Moreover, the sturdy quality of this rubber shields the midsole foam from the damaging effects of ground exposure and landing impact. The Hoka One One Speedgoat 3 is another trail running shoe that makes use of the Vibram® Megagrip outsole.

Multidirectional gripping lugs pockmark the outsole. These prominent nodes are meant to hold onto the surfaces, ensuring movement control and steady performance.


An ethylene vinyl acetate (EVA) foam serves as the primary cushioning unit of the Dynafit Alpine Pro. This full-length platform attenuates the force when landing the foot on the ground, then provide responsive lift during the toe-off phase. The design of the Alpine Pro's midsole is maximized for neutral pronators.

The Alpine Rolling construction involves the midsole having a rocker shape. Such a design allows the shoe to smoothly roll from the heel to the forefoot with every step. Also, it potentially speeds up the performance of the runner.

The Carbon Shield is an integrated plate in the midsole that acts as a barrier between the foot and the ground. It prevents potential injuries by way of surface abrasion.


A mix of fabric and mesh serves as the primary cover system. The materials are form-fitting, so they’re able to accommodate the natural shape and motion of the foot. Minute pores encourage the flow of air into the interior chamber.

The Adaptive Grid is a set of stitched panels that hold the foot in place. The sidewise-stair-like design of these add-ons preserve breathability and encourage foot flexibility.

The Heel Preloader is a rubber strap that’s fused to the back portion of the Dynafit Alpine Pro. Its job is to hold the foot in place and prevent it from wobbling inside the foot-chamber. The ‘Dynafit’ wordmark is emblazoned on the sides.

A quick lacing system is employed in this running shoe. This configuration involves thin yet stretchy cables, non-prominent eyelets, and a securing tab. When combined, these elements offer a customizable fit that doesn’t require the traditional loop-and-tie act.

A stretchy mesh envelops the instep section. Its purpose is to hide the excess length of the laces, thereby warding off any distractions during the run.
