Customization meets speed with the Mont Blanc BOA® trail runner

DENVER (August 4, 2022)/OUTDOOR SPORTSWIRE/ – Altra, a leading innovator in performance running, launches the Mont Blanc BOA® trail runner, the first Altra shoe to feature a BOA® Fit System for a secure, personalized fit.

The all-new Mont Blanc BOA® is designed for technical trail runners seeking a way to dial in their best fit. Capitalizing on Altra’s tried and trusted technologies, this shoe is engineered with the ultimate combination: Altra’s Balanced Cushioning platform and Footshape™ Toe Box, Altra’s plushest midsole foam EGO™MAX, the BOA® Fit System and the Vibram® LiteBase outsole. The result is a micro-adjustable, breathable and traction-ready shoe, prepared to go on all-day trail excursions.

Optimizing innovative features that merge ultimate comfort with speed, the Mont Blanc BOA® is equipped with a PerformFit™ Wrap powered by the BOA® Fit System, which delivers dialed in performance and micro-adjustable, precision fit. With customization in two distinct zones, runners gain a closer connection to the trail and superior stability on dynamic terrain. Within seconds, runners can adjust for an all-day personalized fit, no matter the conditions.

“With the Mont Blanc being designed as our premium trail product, we wanted to push the on-foot experience even more by working with BOA® to provide an elevated dynamic fit,” said Alex Lind, Senior Product Line Manager at Altra. “The dual dial system allows runners to tune their fit in two areas, and provide a confident fit in variable terrain. It also allows for on-the-fly adjustments.”

Altra partnered with BOA® to perform extensive scientific research with the goal of providing a connected, secure fit that improves ankle stability and reduces landing impact. For those who are obsessed with the relationship between shoe fit and athletic performance, the Mont Blanc BOA® will enable a new world of exploration.

The Mont Blanc BOA® is available at altrarunning.com in a sleek Maroon Bells colorway with a retail price of $210.
