Altra Rivera

Ready for the open road, the Altra Rivera in Light Blue is a shoe designed to give you a performance edge on your daily runs. Lightweight and breathable it uses Altra’s tried and tested EGO midsole for a soft yet springy feel.
Altra believe in three over riding principles that guide each shoe they make including the Rivera. The first is a Footshape Toe Box that allows the toes to spread, allowing your big toe to remain in position for maximum stability and power. Secondly Fit4Her technology has a completely different fit for men and women’s shoes designed around the key physical characteristics of the foot. Thirdly they believe in balanced cushioning with a 0mm heel drop for optimal alignment and to cultivate better form. The Rivera uses an engineered mesh upper for a breathable feel, and Neutral Innerflex outsole that is targeted for maximum flexibility and minimum weight. The EGO midsole combines a springy and responsive feel with soft comfort, for a perfect blend of sensations.


Experiment is often the precursor to innovation, and that was certainly the case with Altra, whose origins lie in the humble toaster oven their founders used to melt heel counters off running shoes.

The eventual result was the brand’s zero drop “Balanced Cushioning” that puts the heel and toes the same distance from the ground. This gives optimal alignment, cultivates better form, and encourages a low-impact landing.

Another key feature of Altra shoes is the wide toe box, known as the “Footshape”. By allowing your toes to relax and spread out naturally, it lets your big toe find the optimum position for stability and power.

In Altra’s women’s footwear, Fit4Her technology caters to the specific form of the female foot, with designs based around a narrower heel and midfoot, a higher instep, and a longer arch.


The Altra Rivera is a daily trainer with a performance kick. It’s cushioned and comfortable, but when you pick up the pace it can feel energetic and lively.
