Altra Footwear Vanish Carbon - Men's


Altra Footwear Vanish Carbon - Men's


We’re bringing FootShape™ comfort to the magical world of carbon-plated shoes. Introducing the Vanish Carbon — an all-new race shoe from Altra Running.


We partnered with carbon fiber expert Carbitex™ to design a plate that naturally flexes with your foot, providing an added boost and propulsion in every stride.


Our rocker shape geometry is designed to give the feeling of being propelled forward with each step and provides an efficient toe-off without taking away from your natural stride.


We named it PRO for a reason. Introducing EGO™ PRO, our lightest foam designed to cushion you mile after fast mile.

The Vanish Carbon features our Slim FootShape™ Fit, designed to achieve a perfect race-day fit. This feature encourages your toes to relax and sit naturally giving you the power and stability you need for fast, long-distance runs.


We were obsessed making a carbon shoe that delivered on performance that carbon has brought to the long, fast run. But we were not going to sacrifice our commitment to our bodies working in harmony with our shoes.

17, our magic number. We made and tested 17 prototypes to get our first, true long-distance speed shoe. Each version better than the last. Each version more and more in tune with how our bodies run. Our overly obsessive commitment to discover new and innovative solutions, has resulted in the uniquely designed Vanish Carbon.
