Awesome shoe, try em, you'll like em.
- Grip and traction
- 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.
Where to Buy
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!

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.
