ALTRA SUPERIOR 3.5 TECH SPECS: Stack Height 21 mm, Zerop drop, Weight 292 men / 232gr women gr. The Superior revamps its upper to ensure it is now more durable. The shoe also comes with the 4-Point Gaiter Trap,  removable StoneGuard,  DuraTread Outsole. Altogether a nice pack to run the long miles on forest roads and easy going single trails. 

 

.

ALTRA MOUNTAIN KING 1.5 TECH SPECS: Weight (M) 241 g | (W) 198 g: Zero Drop; Stack Height 19mm. The Altra King MT was born as the most technical shoe in the range, for those runners who embrace mud, rocks and burly mountain climbs, relaying on a Vibram megagrip sole as well as most original construction. This first update features a new upper with reinforced mesh and enhanced drainage features. The iconic FootLock strap has been adjusted for increased comfort, and the neoprene inside the heel is softer and more secure.
