With Ferguson dead and his Loyalist militia destroyed, Cornwallis transferred his army into North Carolina and eventually Virginia. If your weekends include muddy trail runs or tactical OCRs, this is the shoe you’ll want in your arsenal. Once you have your foot in the shoe you do not notice this, and the directional material helps keep your heel from popping out of the heel pocket. A “Stone guard” plate is integrated in the sole to stop the feeling of the stones coming up through the sole. The fully-cushioned yet responsive midsole composed of lightweight EVA foam keeps your heel and toes the same distance from the ground.

The upper has been redesigned with a reinforced harness that locks the arch into place, and a thicker overlay exists around the toe box to improves durability (so far from what we've seen). Just be wary of its predecessors' poor durability; a trait that Altra is known for, unfortunately, in the trail running community.Erik “Great Velcro strap addition, the upper sole construction made a huge difference on the durability of the shoe. Jeff: I find the ride to also be very flat, non responsive and not particularly inspiring, but reasonable for its intended purpose. It will be mandatory to type feet out of muddy areas to find a lightness that certainly makes a lot in the quality of the product (295 grammes). On the snowy, cold run in the Mendips they performed even better, keeping grip as snow turned to mud turned to rocks, helping giving a feeling of confidence on the climbs and descents. With that in mind I have also been very cautious about keeping the shoe off of pavement which I feel has extended the life of the Vibram outsole.

The 19mm midsole is not as cushioned as other Altras, but with the rock plate it offers enough protection to keep the bottom of your feet safe. I bought these for trail running after being really impressed with my Altra Superior road trainers which were really comfy straight out of the box. Ferguson, rather than pushing on until he reached Charlotte and safety (just a day's march away), camped at Kings Mountain and sent Cornwallis another letter asking for reinforcements.The inside of the heel has a rougher material designed to grip to the fabric of a sock and keep the heel from slipping out of the shoe, and combined with the velcro strap, I think it’s done a good job of that. Fully cushioned Zero Drop™ technology promotes a more natural foot strike for a more efficient stride. The fit in the toe box feels wider than before, which we appreciate as this was a major caveat with the previous iteration.
