Superior 2.0

rated 2.5 of 5 stars One of the most comfortable shoes I have owned, but not for long. I record my runs with a GPS watch and have put about 135 km on these shoes, mostly on trail. I bough them in my usual size 46, but the fit is a bit loose, especially in the heel (tried on the 45s but they seemed a little short). I was looking for something with a little more padding than the "barefoot" shoes I have been running in for the last 5.5 years, but still with zero drop and some trail feel. These seemed to fit the bill. They… Full review

Superior 2.0

rated 4 of 5 stars Great all-around trail shoes with comfortable fit and good trail feel. Unfortunately, they wear out too quickly. Intro/background: Altra gave these shoes to everyone who participated in Oslo Ecotrail in May 2016. Since May, I have run and hiked approximately 360 kilometers/220 miles in these shoes across a wide variety of terrain, and I feel like I have put them through their paces. Some of the big days in these shoes include a hard training weekend in loose, rocky terrain of Rondane National Park in… Full review

Lone Peak 2.5

rated 4 of 5 stars A lightweight running shoe fit for backpacking. The Lone Peak 2.5 came highly recommended to me by a fellow hiker as a lightweight, fast drying, comfortable trail shoe. After doing some additional research, Altra seemed to have some durability issues, but I took a chance.  After about 150 miles over three months, about half running on city trails and streets, and the other half backpacking in the Rockies and Ozarks, the toe cap on both shoes is peeling off.  The tread still looks almost new. I… Full review

Lone Peak 3.0 NeoShell Mid

rated 4.5 of 5 stars Large toe box lets your toes spread out and helps avoid blisters. Zero drop for that minimalist ground feel. Great for wet weather. Mid height for added ankle support. After reading on hiking forums for quite some time how popular zero drop trail runners were for long distance hiking, I was excited when I got a chance to test these shoes. Once the Altra Lone Peak 3.0 mid height boot arrived in the spring, I immediately started putting some miles on them. This is the first Lone Peak in a boot configuration… Full review

Lone Peak 1.5

rated 4 of 5 stars A great shoe for fastpacking with lots of toe space. I wore these shoes as thru hiking shoes. They were the most comfortable thing I'd put on my foot during the whole trail, especially after wearing the Merrell barefoot shoes for several hundred miles. I experienced zero blisters or foot issues in these shoes over about 500+ miles which was quickly reaching the life of the shoes. The uppers wear quickly and Altra is incredibly hard to get in contact with to warranty anything. They are NOT water… Full review
