[Looking for the latest version? The women's Altra Rivera 2 is available now.]
Delivering the signature Altra fit with a sleeker look, the women's Altra Rivera is an easy-riding everyday trainer that fits your style.
Altra built the Rivera around its FootShape toe box. Designers shaped the toe box to more closely mimic the real shape of a human foot, which gives you more space in the forefoot to let your toes sit and splay naturally.
A proven EGO midsole powers the Rivera. Altra’s EGO foam composition gives you soft landings on pavement, but it provides an energizing response for a lively ride.
In the Altra Rivera review, Fleet Feet runners praised the shoe’s modern aesthetic and sense of ground feel on the run.
Like all Altra running shoes, designers built the Rivera on top of Altra’s zero-drop Balanced Cushioning platform. The drop measures the difference in height between the heel and forefoot; the Rivera is the same height from heel to toe, which puts you in a more natural stance.
The new women's Altra Rivera maintains the fit and feel you expect with a sleek new look and snugger fit than other models in the lineup.
