Altra Lone Peak $120

Altra Lone Peak $120

The Lone Peak was Altra’s first Trail running shoe, and continues as its flagship trail shoe. The upper is a semi-open mesh with traditional overlays creating a full rand and providing shape, structure, and protection. Altra’s Footshaped® toe box accommodates a wide range of foot volumes.

The Lone Peak facilitates the use of gaiters with a D-ring at the lace throat and a velcro strap called GaiterTrapTM that secure gaiters in position. The redesigned midsole has an A-bound layer over a newly sculpted EVA layer—a combination that offers cushioned comfort, a measure of protection, and decent durability just as fans of the shoe have come to expect from the Lone Peak. A rock plate called StoneGuardTM is sandwiched between the midsole and outersole adding a protective layer that’s great on even the rockiest trails. The outersole has a new config- uration of hexagonally-shaped lugs from midfoot to the toes and a perimeter of beefy lugs to ensure grip in all conditions and on all surfaces, including the man-made variety. Runners interested in a rugged trail shoe with plenty of room in the toes and the low profile of zero-drop geometry need look no further.

“Fits nice and snug in the heel, but really roomy in the toes. Plenty of traction. I have not run on any trails they can’t handle.”
