Altra Lone Peak 6
These shoes have a fit and build that are great for all day comfort, on or off trail. "Original Footshape fit" is amazing for wide feet! The extra space may make them unsuitable for fierce competition, though.
- Wide toe box
- Zero drop
- Gaiter trap
- Grippy outsole with great traction
- I like Salomon's quick tie laces better
- No studs
Fit: These use Altra's "original footshape fit", which is their roomiest fit. Believe it, or not, they also come in a wide. When I ordered these, they were only available in wide, so that's what I got.
Comfort: The wide toe box is so comfortable. I'm almost always used to having my foot squeezed, especially at the end of a long day. That's a thing of the past with these. I am constantly checking for another deal on these because I definitely want another when these wear out.
Support: Feels great, but I'm used to minimalist shoes, so don't know how they'd feel for someone used to more support.
Water Resistance: N/A
Traction: They've kept me from slipping much on a lot of terrain, though it's common to wear studs in places I've used these. I've slipped a bit going up loose earth climbs, wet rocks, and wet leaves.
Temp Control: N/A
Ease of Use: N/A
Features: Gaiter Trap holds Dirty Girl Gaiters, or Altra's Trail Gaiters in place without the need to attach a strip of velcro. There's also a built-in cover to keep debris from sticking to the velcro.
Construction & Durability: They've held up through 80+ miles of on and off trail running so far. A small part of a seam on the toe cap broke, but it's still holding together well.
Conditions: I've used these in the spring and summer so far, orienteering, trail runs, and hikes, starting March of this year. I've taken them through streams and worn them on a 16+ mile day of runs and hikes. Still happy feet at the end of that day with no blisters!
As a Scoutmaster, geocacher, and orienteer, I find myself in forests at least once a week. These shoes are holding up well in 80+ miles of primarily off trail running.
