Having some extra cushioning underfoot is a huge plus during ultras and on long-distance trail runs, but not if it means sacrificing nimbleness or speed. The Mont Blanc is the rare plush shoe that is still plenty peppy. Altra carved out its space in the running world with its commitment to a balanced platform (unlike many shoes, the height of the heel and forefoot are the same) and an anatomical foot-shaped design with a wide, flared toebox and you get both in the Mont Blanc. But you also get a supportive but deeply cushioned midsole and a premium Vibram LiteBase outsole that strips away excess bulk and places your foot closer to the ground for enhanced responsiveness. Fast and cushioned? Sign us up.
