Women's Altra Paradigm 5

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.

    Very comfortable

    Posted by Gabrielle Rehmeyer on Nov 24th 2020

    I got these shoes for running since I’ve been dealing with some overuse injuries in my L foot the past 9 months or so (capsulitis, bunion and possibly Freiburg infraction). I had been running in brooks and ASICS training for a marathon when the pain began. Since I found out what was going on I switched to Altras (Grafton for waking, lone peak for hiking/trail running and now these for long walks, shorter runs). I love the support and that my toes can move freely. I think I was wearing too small shoes for way too long. I prefer my Hoka arahis for longer runs (I can’t run more than 6 miles anymore because of the injury so when I say long I mean 4-6). These altras are very comfortable and almost feel too supportive for running sometimes, the hokas feel like they respond better but I go back and forth. I love to wear these out and about such as a day of walking around DC. Would definitely get another pair.

    This shoe has the great cushion that I need. It's as good as the 4.5 I just replaced. I like the "rails" system since I run on gravel surfaces it works great.
