Altra Zero Delilah review and giveaway

0267 163242 200x300 Altra Zero Delilah review and giveaway

The Altra Zero is a great, find your mid foot kind of shoe

When I was at the Boston Marathon expo, I sought out the Altra Zero booth because this was a shoe I had been eyeing. I’d read good things about it and thought it might be a great shoe to give a go post-marathon. Lucky for me, Altra Zero was open to giving me a pair of Delilah’s to review, and one to give away to you all.

So here’s what I think of this shoe:

  • It’s flexible–passes my “bend in half” test. This means no stiff soled shoe to prevent your feet from doing what they should naturally.
  • It’s got a really nice, wide toe box. In fact, I think it’s the biggest one out there. Why is this important? It lets your toes splay naturally as you land and take off. More traditional shoes are going to squeeze your feet into unnatural narrowness.
  • They have zero heel drop from heel to toe. This helps you find your mid foot.
  • They weigh very little (6.2 ounces)–you don’t even notice them on your feet.
  • They give you the option of wearing them with or without the insole.
  • I’m going to give them extra points for their cool factor too–I love the looks of this shoe.

    Passes the flexibility test beautifully

Really, there’s not much I would say bad about this shoe. It has worked really well for me so far. I have been using it in small doses, only on short runs and at the beginning of a few longer ones. As I wrote last Friday, I am easing my way down to zero drop, hopefully once and for all. I feel like these shoes are a perfect way to do that.

The only place I wouldn’t take these shoes is a trail. The bottom is pretty treadless, which works fine on the road, but I think on slick trails you’d slip and slide all

IMG 1399 224x300 Altra Zero Delilah review and giveaway

The bottom is definitely not made for a trail

over the place. But that’s where (minimalist!) trail shoes come in. I also wouldn’t recommend these shoes to anyone who likes/needs much in the way of cushion. You will feel the road with these, believe me. More incentive to land lightly and these can help teach that, but if you hit hard, you won’t find any cushion to soften the blow.

Would you like to try a pair? Altra Zero is offering up a pair to one of my lucky readers. The Delilah model for a female or a Samson model for a male. Simply tell me in a comment below why you’d like to try a zero drop shoe. I’ll let random.org select a winner next Tuesday, May 15.

  1. I’ve been hearing so much about these Altra shoes, I would love to try them out during my Ironman training! I have wide feet so these may be just perfect for me!

  2. I have made the jump to the NB Minimus Trail shoes, but they still have a 4mm drop. I would love to try going to a zero drop! The Altra’s would be a great choice since I need a wide toe box. And who can pass up a cool looking shoe?

  3. I would love to try the Zero drop Altra’s. I have read a lot about these and would love to wear them.

  4. I’d love to try these out – been wanting to ease my way into a zero-drop shoe. I also really need the wide toe box, so these sound like they might be a good fit!

  5. I have a wicked heel strike and have been consciously trying to shift to a mid-foot strike with no success in traditional shoes. I’d love to give these shoes a try!

  6. Cecilia says:

    I have been transitioning to zero drop over the past year and currently use Merrells as my zero drop shoes (run in Green Silence regularly.) Have heard great things about Altra and I’d be interested in testing them out!! Thank you!

  7. I’d love to try them out to see if my plantar plate is ready to begin the transition to more minimalist running yet. And I think I’d look good in them :D

  9. Rene' Whiteley says:

    I love the Altra company in general. I have the Intuition and ran 9 in them a couple of weeks ago. Also what is cool about the Delilah is they were featured in a J. Crew photo spread. I know so petty but so cute:) So anyway I would love to try the Delilah. I think that I am ready to feel the road.

  10. Thanks for the chance to win! I’ve been working hard on my midfoot strike, but in some recent race photos (IronGirl Columbia), I’m seeing a peek of sole, so I know I’m not there yet.

  11. would love to try those, I’m working on training for a duathlon and need to really work on new running techniques and have heard great things about zero drop

  12. Last year I spent months in PT with a PFPS injury from improper running form. Since then, I have changed not only my form, but my shoes. No more built up, heavy shoes for this girl!! Less shoe = less injury for me.
    I would LOVE to try the Deliah!! I have run in the Intuition from Altra and love them.
    Just a total bonus that I am totally digging the black/hot pink/gray colors on these too!!

  15. After a couple of years of injuries, I think I am slowly figuring out what helps me run best. I recently moved from a 14mm drop shoe to a 4mm drop, and I am loving it. I have been looking at the Alteras as a next step, so that is why I would love to win these shoes. :)

  16. I am interested in trying a zero drop shoe, as I have being hearing a lot of good things about them.

  24. I have a friend in my running club who wears the Altra shoes and has been raving about them. My current shoes have a 12mm drop so it would be a big change but after my marathon I have been thinking about trying a new shoe with a zero drop.

  25. The only minimalist shoes I’ve tried are the five fingers and hated them. I’d love to give a different pair a shot, but I’m also too cheap to buy a pair and then hate them again!

  26. I’d like to try a zero drop shoe! I have always run in the same model very structured shoe because my brother bought me a pair when I first started running, and I have been afraid to change what has worked. I’d like to try out a more natural shoe a few miles per week and make a gradual transition.

  33. Well, you know what I want to try this – really in the throes of working on my form and moving towards a mid strike. I want to experiment with different shoes and this one seems like a good one to add into the mix. Have to say I had never heard of this brand, but would love to give them a spin!

  38. I’ve been seriously considering switching to a minimalist shoe for some time now. These shoes look perfect for doing so. I’d love to incorporate them (slowly) into my training!

  39. Would love to try this shoe – I have super wide feet so like the sound of that extra wide toe box!

  47. I have also been easing myself down to zero drop and would LOVE to wear these shoes.

  48. Ah! I’ve had my eye on these shoes for MONTHS! Altras are difficult to track down in the Chicagoland area where I haven’t found a local retailer yet who carries them, these aren’t the kind of shoes I would just randomly buy off the internet and hope for the best.

    Ran in Newtons for most of the fall/winter months and loved them, but at $175 a pop they are a bit much when you clock about 300 miles a month. I am coveting these Altras like a mad woman!

  49. Jackie says:

    Like you, I’ve been moving toward a zero drop shoe. I’m exclusively running in shoes with a 4 mm drop (kinvaras and go run) but am ready to make the move to 0. I’ve been reading reviews like a woman possessed and would love to try these!

  50. Sherry says:

    I would love to try the Altra’s. I’ve heard alot of great things about them.

  51. I’ve been very curious about these and would love to give them a try!

  52. Margaret says:

    I have been dealing with plantar fasciitis for over a year and I’m thinking about working towards a minimilist shoe. The Altra Zero’s would be a great start!

  53. I would love to try those shoe. I was running in the vff’s but than my right ankle started hurting. So I went back to my old running shoes because that was the only way i could keep on running with out pain. So i havent used the vffs for a while now. I guess I still kind of gun shy about my ankle. I am running in a 4mm running shoe now. I would love to find a more mininalist shoe that would work for me. Thanks for a great review/giveaway.

  54. I have been wanting to try these type of shoes! I have been dealing with PF for months and have read so many blogs about using these shoes to help strengthen feet and helping your foot strike properly. Would love to try them:)

  55. Denise P. says:

    I’ve recently started using a more minimalist shoe to try and solve ongoing knee/foot issues. I’d definitely love to try a shoe with a zero heel drop.

  56. Katharine says:

    I run either barefoot or on five fingers mostly because I have them and they work for me. Without much cash to throw at new shoes I’ve been lax in trying anything new. These sous great, contest or not I’d like to see how they work for me.

  57. Agree the Samsons/Delilahs are a good, flat, flexible road shoe. They work OK on dry trails, but you’ll be sliding backwards if you try climbing a slick hill. However, I’m not so sold on the looks as you are. Glad you like them and good luck with the transition to zero-drop. Cheers!

    I have been hearing so much about Altra’s, but haven’t yet had the chance to try them out. I love my Nike Frees and have been gradually doing some mileage in my Brook’s Green Silence. I also have a pair of New Balance Minimus to try out on the trail. Would love to give the Delilahs a shot!

  60. never tried an altra – need one to add to my minimalist collection. it’ll all be bronzed and put in a museum one day, i’m sure :-D

  61. I’d love to try a zero drop shoe and the wide toe box is just what I need.

  62. I have the intuitions and I am LOVING the transition! At first I hated them and hated that I was slower….still am, but the more I run in zerodrop the better I feel. I really wish I could win the updated version as well, as I won these through a giveaway too – God knows I’m poor ;) lol

  64. I’ve been working a lot lately on my form and also been moving towards running in more minimal shoes. I think I’m ready for the next step and these shoes would be perfect to get me there.

  65. I would love to try these shoes because I have really been trying to focus on a minimal heel toe drop.. I’ve been experiencing alot of lower back and hip pain and have noticed that I am a horrible Heel Striker and think that I definitely need to fix this problem.. I’m skeptical about running “barefoot” and think that these shoes would be the PERFECT transition for me!!

  66. Since you are essentially my e-coach and running guru, you know I need the 0 mm to continue to improve my form! :)

    I have had a chance to meet the Altra peeps and am a huge fan! Would be honored to try a pair!

  69. I absolutely would love to try a pair of Altras. I have been minimalist /barefoot for a year and am just recovering from a nasty bought with achilles.I am looking for a min road shoe.I have been overwhelmed with the choices and not sure which way to go. I have a problem with my right foot landing which wears through the sole on the outside very quickly all brands I try. I am very interested to see if Altra’s sole can outlast other brands on this issue!

  70. I’d love to try the Delilah. I tried all kinds of shoes, including minimalists, and I haven’t found the love of my life type shoe. I have not tried Altra though. Please consider me for your drawing.

  82. Yes! I’d love to move in that direction… I’ve been getting used to 4mm shoes little by little, and would love a zero drop pair to experiment with once I make that transition. I love that they have the extra toe room. I’ve been realizing how important that it lately, too.

    Hopefully, having taken a little time off running, I can get into the zero drop and start fresh!

    I started running in Brooks PureCadence after I got semi-badly injured running in shoes that overcorrected my overpronation. Game changing! My feet feel awesome. Now I’m wanting to try a really minimal shoe. Thanks for the giveaway!

  120. I’d LOVE to try a zero-drop shoe. My dr thinks it would help with some of my form issues (and therefore pain/ joint issues) so I’m starting to think about making the transition with my running shoes … but he wants me to start WALKING more barefoot or zero-drop to start.

  121. My boyfriend has been raving about his zero-drop shoes and how springy they feel. I’d love to be able to keep up with him in speed and in shoes! I’ve stared making the transition to a more minimalist footwear style, but I haven’t gotten any running shoes yet. I’d love to get my hands on a pair of Altra Delilahs!

    Thanks for your review on the shoe, too! It sounds like a fun shoe.

  122. I would love to try this shoe & start minimalist running! Have never before but think it would be a great thing to start- and it would be GREAT to win!

    I’ve heard so much about zero drop shoes lately, so I’d like to give them a try. Plus, my mother-in-law just read Born to Run and has been asking me a lot about minimalist running (which I know very little about), so maybe I’d better start researching and trying it!

  124. I would like to try the shoes because I do a lot of walks (ie: autism speaks, Jdrf and breast cancer) and those are pretty long and my feet get tired easily. Thanks for the chance to try them!

  125. I’ve always heard about zero drop and would be curious to try it out! Especially because I feel it could help with my running form.

  126. I’ve been heading towards a more minimalist shoe slowly and incorporating some barefoot running as well, so these would fit perfectly into my quest for the mid foot!

  127. hmmmm… these sacre me a bit, but I’m willing to try. They would be great for some of my cross training: Plyo, jumping rope, etc. Lots of good luck for me and, to be fair, a little bit of good luck for everyone else.

  128. I’m back to running after some ITB fun. I’ve been running in Free 3.0, but the toe box is really narrow, would love to try these!~

  129. I would love to try these! I recently tried a low drop shoe, but would be interested in trying a no drop!

  130. You know, I don’t know the difference really between these and Newtons (other than flexibility and Newtons have that thing on the bottom) but they both claim to be zero drop. I think, from my limited research, that seems to be the smart way to barefoot run.

  133. I’ve been running with minimalist shoes and actually running barefoot on the treadmill during times when I couldn’t find shoes to fit…I’ve been unable to wear a lot of the different barefoot shoes for the road because of either toe restrictions or how the insole hits my arch – causing bruising and a lot of discomfort. I’m curious about the Delilah Altra Zeros because you can remove the insole and they seem to have the most positive reviews.

  134. As a massage therapist who is recovering from a horrible accident. (split open my gastrocnemius and soleus muscles in a rock accident in yosemite) I have been re-learning to walk and also counseling clients about proper running form and strong feet. After talking it over with my PT I’ve decided to try out minimalist foot-ware. Love what I’ve heard about the Delilahs and would love to have the experience in them to recommend to clients as well.

  135. I wanted to thank you for this good read!! I certainly enjoyed every
    little bit of it. I have you saved as a favorite to look at new stuff you post…

  136. May I simply say what a relief to discover an individual who truly knows what they are discussing on the net.
    You certainly know how to bring an issue to light and make it important.

    More and more people have to read this and understand this side of
    the story. I was surprised that you’re not more popular
    given that you surely have the gift.
