You started out your passion for running on the roads around your house, but it wasn’t long before you grew bored with the flat monotony and escalated (literally) to backcountry trails with more rugged elevation gains before landing in the world of peak-bagging, obstacle course races. With the Altra Women’s King MT 1.5 Trail Running Shoe, you’re finally able to embrace your evolved running style, conquering windswept ridges and glacial cirques with ease. Built specifically for mountain running, the King MT 1.5 features a Vibram MegaGrip outsole with 6mm lugs that are ready to rip, grip, break, and provide medial support in all sorts of conditions—especially the untrekked kind.
Now making its second season debut, the 1.5 has refreshed uppers with more durable mesh and enhanced drainage in the toes and medial midfoot, keeping that muddy water where it belongs—on the trail. The FootLock strap has also been moved medially and lower down on the arch for a more comfortable feel. It retains the Altra Ego midsole, which keeps rock-shock down and comfort up while still providing an energetic feel underfoot that keeps you cruising, and it continues Altra’s Zero Drop platform and FootShape toe box; these features encouraging a natural stride and allow your toes to splay and move with ease.
