Men's Altra Paradigm 7



Motion Control



A Plush, High-Cushion Trainer With The Right Amount Of Support

The Altra Paradigm 7 has slowly become a go-to high-cushion, supportive option for runners looking for a plush yet stable experience. This recent update continues to build on this legacy and has delivered another great iteration of this daily trainer.

Take the Paradigm 7 on any run and you’ll immediately notice the comfort of Altra’s EGO™ MAX midsole foam. This cushioning does an excellent job of absorbing impact to give your feet and joints some reprieve.

Altra is a big proponent of encouraging your body’s natural movement but there are times when our bodies need a little guidance. Their GuideRail™ technology works efficiently by offering this guidance to runners who tend to overpronate but only when they need it.

Up top, the Paradigm 7 has a redesigned upper made from breathable, engineered mesh. Helping wick away moisture is amazing but this upper goes a step further offering complete comfort with a molded heel collar and plush tongue. Creating a secure and comfortable experience so you can focus on the run ahead of you. 

Some other classic features Altra incorporates is their FootShape™ technology and Balanced Cushioning™. The Standard FootShape™ fits in the middle between their Slim and Original options, offering just the right amount of space for your feet to sit naturally. Finally, the signature Balanced Cushioning™ positions your forefoot and heel an equal distance off the ground, helping promote better form throughout the gait cycle as well as better alignment.
