Natural Ride System Keeps Feet Properly Positioned

This shoe's Natural Ride System improves your running experience by using complimentary running technologies, including foot-shaped lasts and outsole componentry that includes a proper metatarsal parabola.

When you're hitting the trail, the shoe's foot-shaped design allows your toes to splay outward and helps your feet maintain proper position. The Zero Drop platform improves posture and reduces excessive heel strikes for a more efficient, natural stride.

Zero Drop refers to positioning both the heel and ball of foot the same distance from the ground rather than elevating the heel midsole twice as high as the forefoot like traditional shoes do.

Superior Fit and Comfort

Altra running shoes are built to provide support when needed and space where appropriate. This shoe's 'A'-Wrap design snugly wraps the midfoot and heel while allowing space for your toes to splay out. This improves balance, foot relaxation and shock absorption. The removable Strengthen Footbed contains A-Bound, an energy return compound that sits directly under the foot to help soften the impact of hard surfaces while maintaining ground feedback.

Altra's Eve model is designed for women's narrower heels, smaller insteps, longer arches and different metatarsal positioning.

Razor Siped Rubber Sole Grips All Surfaces

The shoe's 3.4-millimeter BareSole is crafted from siped performance rubber that will grip almost any surface, wet or dry, so you can safely move across various terrains. The shoe's stretchy, breathable fabric upper includes simple Velcro cinch straps.

Two Insoles Help Strengthen and Support Feet

This running shoe comes with two insoles. One to help you strengthen your feet and one that provides gentle support for runners new to minimalist shoes. The strengthen insole is flat, while the support insole has a traditional molded arch and heel wrap. Experienced minimalist runners & water sport athletes can wear this shoe without either insole for a maximum barefoot like experience.

    I am very hard on shoes as I weigh 215.

    I have bad knees and thought these would be uncomfortable for me.

    I love them and they are so comfy!

    Don't know yet about durability.

    These are the only shoes I can wear now since discovering barefoot style shoes. Very comfortable and the toe box is wide enough that it doesn't cramp my toes. Do not ignore the special sizing direction of leaving room in front of the toe. The sole has good traction and I can use it to play table tennis in. The only issue I have with the shoe is the really cheap, low quality thread used in the construction. They fuzz out and break after a few washes and so the shoe is slowly coming apart before the sole has worn out. The threads are a low density poly thread with few twists per meter. It shouldn't cost much more to use a high quality poly thread and it will increase durability greatly.

    I like this shoe for just knocking around the house and for street use. I do not intend to run in this shoe but will use it to strengthen my arches and allow my toes to spread out and eventually become more agile. I like the looks and feel of the shoe and am currently using the beefier insole. The quality is somewhat lacking in the stitching and am not sure how long the shoe will last. I continue to do my running in Altra Instinct shoes and Brooks Pure shoes. The Altra Adam ran true to size for my size 12 feet with wearing thin socks. If you are looking for a way to slowly break into the minimal shoe scene then the Adam shoe might be a good place to start.

    I bought these shoes as a substitute shoe for when my Vibrams are in the wash. Although I love the Vibrams and have had a lot of success in them, I wanted to try something similar but without the separate toe pockets for each toe. This is about as close to the ground as you'll get with any shoe (with the insoles removed) and the overall feel is light and similar to barefoot running. The toe box is huge and there's loads of room to spread your toes according to the terrain, etc. However, the shape of the toe box is quite straight without much curve for the big toe and little toe. My feet are slightly curved, meaning the big toe isn't aligned with the inside of the ankle when looking down. This means that for people like me, there is going to be some rubbing against the big toe. The good thing is that this only happened the first three or four times wearing them and they seem to have loosened up now. They are not a perfect fit and I would recommend going one size larger if your feet are wide as you'll have the same problem as me. Overall, a smooth ride and they look cool. I have also been wearing them at work to soften them up and they don't get frowned at by my boss (who hated my vibrams!).

    My Altra Adams arrived yesterday, so not much to report on durability yet. So far I love them! They are roomy and light weight. The box itself has printed information, there are two sets of insoles, and a pamphlet on how to use them!

    This is the first time I've ever purchased shoes online. I've always felt the reviews weren't convincing enough to sway me to buy. That my feet are "different" and the reviewer probably has normal feet. So here are the details on my feet! LOL Sorry!

    My largest foot is 10 5/8" (26.9875cm) long, and my widest foot is 4 1/4" (10.795cm). Of course, with my feet, the longer foot isn't the widest. Figures. The smaller feet of length and width are over 1/4" smaller.

    I have a normalish arch, not high, not low, but I can't deal with a built in arch in a shoe. It feels like I have a rock in my shoe. My longest heel to ball is 7 3/8" (18.7325cm). My other foot's heel to ball is 7 1/4" (18.415cm). My feet are bony, my toes are long, knuckles like stubby fingers. I can use my toes like fingers to pick things up. I'll never be a foot model. Just ugly. I'd post a pic but you'd be disgusted.

    I ordered a size 10 and I'm pleased! The box suggests you allow 1/2" between your longest toe and the end of the shoe, which is what I have with the size 10.

    Getting the Adam on is a bit tight. It doesn't hurt or anything, just a tad bit of an effort. I figure, the shoe has to stay on somehow. I don't want the pressure across the top of my foot, being anchored to the sides, thus squeezing my foot width.

    I wore the Altras yesterday without socks, I left in the insole that came in them. I got the start of a blister on one foot, after a mile walk, plus a dozen trips up and down stairs.
