Product Overview

The perfect blend of cushion, stability and bounce. The Paradigm is Altra's most cushioned shoe. It also featured their stable guiderails for support and is sitting on their EGO midsole. The same midsole used in their Escalate. It has something for everyone! Great for long miles or long days.

    Paradigm 5

    Posted by Earl on Dec 8th 2020

    In 2016 I tried the first paradigm I think it was the three and my pinky toe was rubbing on the edge so I returned them I ended up with escalante because of the soft materials. And then escalante 1.5 (I have two). Paradigm 4.5 plush was my favorite but still a little tight on that small toe I'm thinking about going up another half size. (The solution is actually just to make it wider at the pinky toe). Paradigm 5 is the most fitting shoe I've ever tried on the market!! If it's excellent. It's not as cushiony as a torin, but if I land on my heel it rolls really nice. if I had to buy another shoe right now I would buy these but now I see they're coming out with wide shoes in the future so I'm holding out for more shoes next year. Hoping the word "wide" doesn't mean the whole foot but mainly that pinky toe area. They'll definitely need that in the RSM (all weather). That's what I'm looking at for next for rainy days! Paradigm 5 is the best! 2021 going to be awesome with the new wide! Hopefully more colors too! Timp 3 wide etc. I hope! Altra is my shoe.

    I've only logged a few miles in them but loving these shoes so far. They are a cushy shoe with plenty of room in the toe box unlike recent iterations of other Altras. The sizing seems to be the same as my Timp 1.5's (size 8's in both fit great).

    These shoes fit great. They are comfortable and so far seem like they will hold up. I have noticed a change in stability while walking so we will see how that pans out.
