Providing a natural experience on any walk or run, the Altra Rivera 4 is a lightweight and versatile shoe for running or an active lifestyle that includes a variety of athletic activities.

The Rivera 4 features a zero-drop midsole, which positions the foot for a natural footstrike. Featuring Altra’s Slim Footshape, the Rivera 4 delivers a sleek and secure fit while allowing plenty of room for your toes to naturally splay. Embrace a natural feel for your next run, walk, or workout with the Altra Rivera 4.


The Altra Rivera 4 serves as a good introduction to Altra for runners and athletes interested in their balanced, zero-drop cushioning and foot-shaped lasts. The Rivera 4 is a true workhorse mid-cushioned running shoe with Altra’s responsive EGO midsole foam that will feel familiar to runners familiar with other brands.

The Altra Rivera 4 is also built on Altra’s slimmest-fitting foot shape, which offers a taste of Altra’s distinctive roomy toe box without feeling sloppy to runners not accustomed to Altra’s fit.

The Altra Rivera 4 is a great running shoe for runners looking to add a zero-drop or low-drop shoe to their rotation. As a lightweight and firmer-platformed shoe, the Altra Rivera 4 is also great as a versatile shoe for the gym or HIIT classes.


The Altra Rivera 4 essentially refines what worked in the Rivera 3, which hit the mark as a true mid-cushioned, responsive, and zero-drop road running shoe. Overall, you’re getting the Rivera 3 with a sleeker look and more accommodating fit.

Thanks to an updated sock-like engineered mesh upper, the shoe fits a little better through the forefoot and offers additional midfoot width where many runners noticed some pinch in in the Rivera 3.

Lastly, the Altra Rivera 4 features an updated heel collar that provides more structure for a more secure fit around the heel and ankle. 


  • Runners of all abilities looking for a workhorse neutral running shoe for daily runs.

  • Occasional runners looking for a shoe to match their active lifestyle. 

  • Runners looking to try a low-drop or zero-drop shoe for the first time.


  • Altra EGO – responsive midsole foam provides an energetic ride.

  • Innerflex – midsole grooves provide flexibility for a natural ride.

  • Footpod technology – encourages natural movement underfoot.

  • Slim Footshape – Altra’s slimmest-fitting last still offers plenty of room for toe splay. 

  • Balanced cushioning – Altra’s zero-drop geometry positions the foot for a natural footstrike.


  • SIZE: True to size

  • HEEL: Moderate (redesigned heel collar enhances rearfoot security)

  • MIDFOOT: Moderate (contoured fit through the midfoot provides a structured, yet flexible wrap.)

  • FOREFOOT: Roomy (Altra’s Slim Footshape still features a wide toe box for plenty of natural toe splay.)


  • CUSHION: The Altra Rivera 4 has a moderate level of responsive cushioning. For a less cushioned shoe, we recommend the Altra Escalante 3. For even more cushion, we recommend the Altra Torin 7.

  • PRONATION: The Altra Rivera 4 doesn’t contain any stability features for overpronators. For a more stable shoe, we recommend the Altra Provision 8.

  • SPEED: The Altra Rivera 4 has responsive Altra EGO cushioning, which makes it suitable for faster running. For an even faster shoe for workouts and races, we recommend the Altra Vanish Tempo or the Altra Vanish Carbon.

  • OTHER BRANDS: Shoes from other brands similar to the Altra Rivera 4 are the New Balance 880 v13Brooks Ghost 15, and Saucony Ride 17
