Lone Peak 3.0

rated 5 of 5 stars My go-to trail running and hiking shoe. The Birkenstocks of trail running shoes. Incredible comfort due to the wide toe box, low drop, flexibility and cushioning. I have used in many conditions except for mud. An almost perfect running shoe no matter how far you run. Great for hiking too as I've taken them out several times for five mile hikes and great for trail running no matter how far you run. I have used in many conditions except mud (SoCAL you know) and they perform well in all of these conditions. Full review

Lone Peak 3.0

rated 4 of 5 stars The Altra Lone Peak 3.0 is a trail shoe designed for a woman's foot and I recommend it for anyone looking for a wide, comfortable toe box and a lightweight shoe for hiking or backpacking. I’ve been alternating between boots and the Altra Lone Peak 3.0 trail shoes all winter. The backpacking debate rages on—trail runners versus boots. I’ve tried trail runners before and didn’t find them to be stable enough on uneven surfaces. Many people hiking the John Muir Trail rave about Altras so I decided… Full review

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
