Summary

These shoes are ridiculously comfortable, especially in the toe-box! They provide the perfect amount of space up front for my extra-wide toes, but are tight in the mid section to hold me in place! Grip is great on trail, less impressive on slippery bridges though.

Pros

  • Natural fit
  • Lightweight
  • Zero-drop, but with enough cushion

Cons

  • Rubber isn't quite as sticky on slippery bridges
  • Tongue is a little thick

As I said above, very comfortable and a great ride. The zero-drop with cushioning is really nice to run on. The width of the toe-box is what really got me hooked on these... I'll have to go buy 4 more pairs!

The tongue is a little thick and may be a little uncomfortable where it attaches to the shoe (nothing some scissors can't fix!).

Overall great shoe!!

Summary

Awesome shoe, try em, you'll like em.

Pros

  • Lightweight
  • Grip and traction
  • Fit
  • Comfort

Cons

  • Some finishing detail

This has to be one of the best shoes out there. Fit is true to size with plenty of toe room and very comfortable. These shoes are fast and light with good traction.

I liked the Zero Drop design; it seems to get you off your heels and makes you a little faster, just like your high school cross country days! And the Zero Drop is not that hard to run in. I like the extra toe room and wider forefoot; it gives more control.

There are some rough cuts in the material, but the shoe seems to hold up well. I use this shoe for fast tempo trail runs.

Retailers' Descriptions

Here's what other sites are saying:

The Lone Peak 1.5 by Altra, was inspired by the Lone Peak, one of the rockiest, toughest mountains in the Wasatch Range. The foot-shaped design allows athletes to stay relaxed and comfortable for hours. This is a do-everything mountain shoe that promotes happy feet, increases ankle stabilization and improves form. This is the ultimate trail running shoe!

- CampSaver.com refers to the men's version

Inspired by one of the rockiest, toughest mountains in Utah's Wasatch Range, the Altra Lone PeakTM 1.5 Trail-Running Shoes are ideal for trail running, hiking, fastpacking and ultra marathons.

- REI refers to the men's version

Utah plays host to hundreds of miles of trails that sweep through some of the rockiest, toughest mountains in the Rockies. As a brand based in Utah, Altra couldn't ignore the opportunity to create a shoe specifically focused on this terrain, and thus, the Men's Lone Peak 1. 5 Trail Running Shoe was born. Like Altra's entire line of running shoes, the Lone Peak features a foot-shaped profile and zero-drop design. Where it differs is in its added support and aggressiveness. The toothy outsole digs into the dirt, collar cushioning protects your ankle, the forefoot includes a rigid rock guard, and the heel features an extended section of outsole that Altra calls the TrailRudder. This is a zero-drop mountain shoe for running the Wasatch 100 or training on the rugged hills behind your house.
