Altra Halo Shoe

The Altra Halo shoe features sensors in the midsole that monitor foot strike zone, cadence and ground force impact. Data from the sensor is displayed on a smartphone app or the iFit Ridge GPS watch.

Most runners have a gait analysis perhaps only once a year, when they visit a specialty running store to buy new running shoes. "The opportunity with the Altra Halo shoe is real-time feedback as you run, so you can quickly adjust and improve your running form before bad habits take hold," explains Brian Beckstead, vice president of sales for Altra.

The Altra Halo shoe will be available Christmas 2015, and will be $180. The iFit Ridge and Peak watches will be available July 1, 2015, and will be $120.
