BOA’s highly innovative Fit lacing system has become a hot commodity among trail runners, and Altra Running is looking to make the most of it. The boutique performance brand has revamped its signature Mont Blanc silhouette with proprietary BOA technology.
The Mont Blanc BOA sits on Vibram’s Litebase compound which keeps it incredibly light while providing the same traction we’re used to seeing from Vibram. The shoe is reinforced with Altra’s signature Altra EGO MAX midsole foam that provides unparalleled cushioning during the toughest runs. The semi-adjustable features of the BOA Fit System provide trail runners with a precise fit and feel. By simply adjusting each dial on the shoes, you can create a custom fit designed to tackle any obstacles that may come your way.
As is the case with a standard pair of Mont Blanc trail runners from Altra, the new iteration has many elements that make its predecessor great. One example is the cobbler’s trademark FootShape comfort technology, which focuses on the structural differences between men’s and women’s feet, resulting in an optimized feel no matter who wears the shoe. The runners are also equipped with a balanced cushioning platform to keep your heel and forefoot the same distance from the ground.
The innovative trail runner has currently been featured in one colorway: Maroon Bells. Altra’s new and improved Mont Blanc BOA is available from the brand’s online store for $210
