Updates to Altra Provision 3.0

  • Completely redesigned from its predecessor, the Altra Provision 3.0 provides improved comfort and support without affecting its well-cushioned ride.
  • The Provision 3.0 comes a redesigned GuideRail system technology that helps overpronators for a much longer and stronger run. It is incorporated into the midsole for an adaptive stability.
  • The Varus Stability Wedge Technology from the previous version is still present in the Provision 3.0 but it comes with a wider heel design and an expanded crash pad for a smoother landing especially on uneven surfaces.
  • It also comes with an enhanced StabiliPod Technology that provides more pods and enhanced arch support.

Size and fit

The Altra Provision 3.0 has a standard running shoe length and it fits true to size. The heel and the midfoot areas have medium measurement, providing a more comfortable feel. The shoe has a wide forefoot, making it ideal for runners with wider foot measurements. The men’s sizes are from 7 to 15 and the women’s are from 5.5 to 12.


Outsole

The outsole of the Provision 3.0 features the FootPod Outsole with StabiliPod Technology designed for a more responsive and flexible ride. The Natural Ride System follows the natural shape of the foot that is designed for a natural running motion.


Midsole

The midsole of the shoe utilizes the Ultra-light EVA with A-Bound Top Layer that provides a lightweight and reliable underfoot cushioning. This works perfectly with the shoe’s StabiliPod Technology that provides enhanced support and with the Varus Stability Wedge Technology that is designed to reduce overpronation without pushing the arch. The built-in Stability Wedge is also designed for a smoother landing.  The midsole configuration of this Altra shoe is somewhat similar to the new Altra Provision 3.5.


Upper

The Altra Provision 3.0 uses a quick-drying mesh in its upper unit, delivering a moisture-wicking foot coverage without sacrificing breathability and comfort. Also, the heel claw construction provides a snug fit in the heel area while giving an enhanced support.
