Seth Wold

Altra Zero Drop Footwear Pro Athlete

Seth’s passion for running and the outdoors make him a natural fit for the Altra team. Although Seth ran against (okay, usually behind) Golden and Brian in high school and college, he loves working with them now to develop the revolutionary Altra shoe line.

As the Head Trainer at a Premier Weight-Loss Retreat, Seth discovered the extreme need for better footwear for people at all running and fitness levels. After hearing about the Altra initiative, he couldn’t wait to join the team. His motivation and experience have been a great addition to Altra.

Golden Harper

Founder Altra Footwear

A competitive runner and running shoe geek, Golden offers a lot of hands-on experience to the Altra team. Golden started running as soon as he left crawling and has never looked back.

Between the ages of 10 and 14, Golden ran 5 marathons, debuting with a State Record 3:08 performance. He followed that up with a 2:57 performance that was good for a National Best for age 11. At age 12, he ran the St. George Marathon in 2:45, setting a world best. He went on to win 2 Cross Country State Championships and compete in the Footlocker Cross Country National Championships.

In addition to competitive running, Golden grew up working in his family’s specialty running store, educating people about proper running technique. He became an expert on running injuries.

Golden studied Exercise Science at two universities, where he was particularly focused on biomechanics, kinematics and coaching. During this time, he wrote several research articles on running-related injuries and running technique.

With the knowledge of proper biomechanics and a passion for reducing running injuries, he developed the first cushioned Zero Drop™ running shoes after appeals to major shoe companies fell on deaf ears. Golden’s running experience and commitment to helping people run better have been a driving force in the creation of Altra.
