Lone Peak 2.5

rated 4.5 of 5 stars I had a few requirements for a light hiking shoe: 1. Wide toe box. 2. Minimal Drop 3. Lightweight. These were the perfect fit for all of these, and I highly, highly recommend them! I had a few requirements for a light hiking shoe: 1. Wide toe box. 2. Minimal Drop 3. Lightweight. I tried on some other hikers like La Sportiva Bushidos and Helios, but they were just too narrow. I like a wide toe box. I found the Altra Lone Peak 2.5 and it has a really, really nice toe box that lets your toes spread… Full review


rated 4 of 5 stars This would be a great mid-distance, less aggressive trail shoe for anyone who's into zero drop. The Altra Superior is a relatively slim zero-drop trail shoe. While they do take a beating (aside from the questionable cords on the upper), it provides a lighter and less-cushioned alternative to Atra's other trail line, the Lone Peak. Those of you who are looking for more toe room and a bit more protection than barefoot shoes should give the Superior serious consideration. For being a shaved down… Full review

Lone Peak 1.5

rated 4 of 5 stars Very comfortable zero drop trail shoe with some cushion. Well, my first Altra trail shoe was the original Lone Peak, so it seemed when the 1.5 came out, I had to have them.

They really lock right on to the foot for a solid fit. I'd say they fit well like any other Altra shoe. The shoe has handled a lot of different terrain and has also been beat… Full review

Lone Peak 2.0

rated 4 of 5 stars If you're looking for a zero drop, distance trail shoe, this is it! This shoe has been a great long distance trail shoe for me. First stepping into them, the 26mm of stack height caught me off guard. It's only 3mm taller than the 1.5 and a few more mm taller than the Superior. Very noticeable and I thought I was on stilts. But that cushion really helped on a recent 50K win. The legs and joints didn't feel any noticable aches or pains that I'd normally have over long distances. Traction is also… Full review


rated 4.5 of 5 stars For zero drop fans, this is a fantastic shoe for long, grinding runs or when you need some recovery cush. I've taken this shoe through mud, rocks, roots and it has held up great. I've also taken it out for extended road runs when the legs felt like they needed some added cushioning. An interesting take on a low drop shoe. At first I wasn't sure if I would like such a "maximalist" shoe. I've been a low profile, low drop fan for years. The Olympus pulls together the natural foot design and zero drop… Full review
