Summary

Amazing trail shoes! Excellent for trail and road running. Hold up well in light to intense rain, dry quickly, and are comfortable from the start! Excellent for novices to advance runners!

Pros

  • Minimal heel drop
  • Wide toe box
  • Comfortable from the first wear
  • Quick drying

Cons

  • The mesh can tear if you get caught on trail debris

These trail running shoes are amazing! Extra wide toe box provides room for comfort, but doesn't let your foot slip and slide inside. Their comfortable shoes with minimal heel drop, allowing for a natural fit and wear during your runs. I use them on trail, and rarely on road, but suit both terrains well.

These shoes do not need to be broken in. They are amazing from the start, comfort fit. The support is exceptional - you don't really notice you are in minimal drop shoes. I would recommend these to any expert runner or even novice looking to transition to flatter shoes with zero drop.

These shoes are quick drying too. The mesh has the ability to tear but I only noticed little tears in the upper mesh after some heavy hard runs in the rain/mud/trail debris (tree stumps, sticks, etc.) I had been pretty rough with them and they only sustained minor tears.

Manufacturer's Description refers to the men's version

The Lone Peak stands above the rest. It was inspired by the rocky and gnarly peak in the Wasatch Mountains for which it was named. Capable of handling 100 miles of such terrain but light and soft enough for an autumn jaunt. A do-everything trail shoe that provides a smooth ride along with lightweight protection.

Best for: mountain running, ultramarathon racing, peakbagging/acrambling, hiking, fastpacking/backpacking, outdoor multi-purpose, and everyday wear

Retailers' Descriptions

Here's what other sites are saying:

The Altra Lone Peak Trail Running Shoe is inspired by the Lone Peak, one of the rockiest, toughest mountains on the Wasatch Range. The Lone Peak was designed to conquer the Wasatch 100. While the foot-shaped design allows athletes to stay relaxed and comfortable for hours, this do-everything mountain shoe promotes happy feet, increases ankle stabilization and improves form with the Zero Drop platform. The Lone Peak features an innovative, sandwiched StoneGuard system that deflects rocks into the midsole for a smoother, more stable ride. Stand above the rest with the ultimate trail running shoe.
