Top Reasons to Buy the Men’s Altra Paradigm 4.0

The Altra Paradigm 4.0 for men won’t try to control or constrict your form, but will provide the support you need when you’ve logged a lot of miles. While this is a neutral shoe, it does feature GuideRail and Stabilipod technology which provides a bit of arch and pronation support - a necessity after you’ve run super long distances and your arches have grown tired from overuse.

If super cushioned trainers are what you’re after, say hello to your new best friend. The men’s Paradigm 4.0 by Altra will quench your craving for max comfort, delivering you an incredibly plush ride every time.

These shoes shine in terms of versatility. Walk in them, run in them, and pound lots of pavement. Although designed with road running in mind, you can count on the durable outsole of the Paradigm 4.0 to stand up against different types of terrain.

Men’s Altra Paradigm 4.0 Updates

Whereas the 3.0 boasted an entirely mesh upper, you’ll spot a revamped knit fabric in the men’s Paradigm 4.0. Altra’s last iteration was soft, but the new Paradigm feels more like a super cozy sock made just for you. You’ll also be introduced to a few additional new features, such as the Altra StabiliPods and EGO midsole material, which make you feel more supported and sure-footed.

Size and Fit of the Men’s Altra Paradigm 4.0

General Size and Fit

The Paradigm 4.0 might feel a little tight for men with wider feet; we recommend going up one half size from your true foot size to give yourself all the space you need and score a snug but comfortable fit.


The new and improved ventilation unit in the men’s Altra Paradigm 4.0 is excellent at releasing heat so your feet stay nice and cool, and the seamless knit material is designed to feel like a comfortable second skin. Despite the soft redesign, the shoe remains as durable as ever and ready to keep up for the long haul.


Scope the Altra EGO midsole of the Paradigm 4.0 for men-it’s well-cushioned in the forefoot and heel, creating one of the plushest platforms to date, but nonetheless delivering a responsive ride. You’re sure to notice a definite pep in your step.


Altra’s advanced Guide Rail and StabiliPod technologies are implemented in the outsole of the men’s Paradigm 4.0, ready to come to your rescue when the going gets a little tough by stabilizing your movements and helping you perfect your stride.
