The Altra Repetition is a zero-drop, natural daily trainer designed for a moderate overpronated foot motion.



With the Altra Repetition, no longer will you have to chose between a supportive, cushioned ride and a zero drop platform. Built for high mileage on the roads, this shoe features a StabiliPod outsole for support, while a padded midsole provides lasting impact protection. Meanwhile, a foot-shaped toebox allows for toe splay, and a zero drop platform encourages a natural stride. With the Repetition, you can have it all.

Customer Reviews

Comments: Love these I am training for the pittsburgh marathon and after a short transition period I took off on them. I was experiencing some issues with my feet before these and now no more. Pittsburgh here I come thank you Altra.

Comments: A well made shoe but was not right for me. The support that is built into this shoe was more than I needed and the shoe was also too narrow for me. Different from other Altra shoes I have tried. I noticed now that it is a different shoe last than the Altra Paradigm which has been great for my feet:)

Comments: Other than looking orthopedic at best or just plain ugly at worst, these are my favorite of the Altra line for the roads. The outsole - unlike the Lone Peak series, actually has a lifespan of more than a couple hundred miles. I do wish this shoe did not have that welded piece on top of the toe box. It seams to buckle that part of the shoe downwards causing rubbing on the toes.
