Providing soft cushioning, responsive performance, and confident traction, the Altra Running Women's Timp 3 trail running shoe checks all the boxes for ultra racing, long-distance running and everyday trail training.
As with all Altra Running shoes, it has a FootShape toe box that differs greatly from the aggressive taper of traditional running shoes. This design lets your big toe remain in a straight position while allowing your other toes to spread naturally. This broader cut reduces the risk of bunions, hammer toes, and plantar fasciitis. The shoe also utilizes a Zero Drop platform (height of the heel and the forefront are the same) that encourages a natural stride rather than elevating the heel or manipulating foot position. This is meant to promote better alignment and a more natural posture while on the move which in turn lessens impact.
A quick-drying mesh upper enables you to enjoy flexibility, breathability, and a forgiving fit. It has enhanced durability at the toe and heel and strategic overlays bolster overall durability and enhance midfoot supportiveness. Streamlined lacing allows for simple and effective fit micro-adjustments. A deep EVA foam midsole delivers comfort while still providing responsiveness.
The shoe has a stack height of 29 mm and weighs in at roughly 17 ounces per pair. The MaxTrac rubber outsole has a tacky surface and a multi-directional lug pattern that together deliver excellent traction regardless of terrain.
Sold in pairs, the Altra Running Women's Timp 3 trail running shoe is available in women's full and half sizes.
