Smooth comfort for rough trails.

Altra took inspiration from one of the most rocky, rugged mountains in Utah's Wasatch Range when it designed the Men's Lone Peak 2.5 Trail Running Shoe. Altra made this shoe burly enough for tough hundred-milers like the Wasatch 100, but the Lone Peak is just as perfect for your everyday trail runs. An upgrade over the Lone Peak 2.0, the 2.5 offers improved upper durability, lighter weight, and a slightly firmer midsole.

Like Altra's entire line of running shoes, the Lone Peak features a foot-shaped profile and a Zero Drop design. The Zero Drop platform encourages a more natural, low-impact strike for properly-aligned body posture and strengthened lower leg muscles. And unlike the narrow toe boxes of most running shoes, the Footshape toe box allows room for your toes to spread out, simultaneously improving comfort and balance.

What makes the Lone Peak stand out from the rest of Altra's line, though, is its aggressiveness. A toothy carbon rubber TrailClaw outsole digs into a variety of terrain, with lugs designed for both uphill and downhill traction, while sandwiched StoneGuard technology keeps out rocks and debris. Full cushioning keeps your foot comfortable whether you're tackling gnarly peaks or just doing a bit of training in the rugged hills behind your house.

Amazing, unless it's wet outside

  • Familiarity:I've put it through the wringer
  • Fit:True to size

I like this shoe unless it's wet. If it's wet out, this thing turns into an ice skate. I went down hard 3+ times on a recent hike where it was raining on granite. I ended up taking these off and hiking in my Luna sandals because they had way more traction. I'd be better off barefoot in the rain.

In the dry, they're great. Super breathable, comfy, lots of room in the to box, they fit true to size, and the built in gaiter velcra was really nice.

If they used a different rubber compound on the sole, that worked well on wet granite, they'd be the perfect shoe.

I've been wearing the Altra Lone Peak 2.5 for a week and it is truly amazing. So far all work, on trails with my dog, and around town. Have not run in them yet. The zero drop idea is great and seems to work well, but most importantly the wide and very specifically configured toe box is what sets this shoe apart from anything I've ever worn. Super comfortable! And the shoe fabric is also super comfortable and breathable as well. Finally, great traction from the sole............well done !

Altra did it again! Got a hold of their road shoe, the One. Couldnt believe how comfortable they were, these were no exception. Trail running should not be about losing toe nails or being in pain, the searing pain in the lungs is enough for me.

These fit a little different than other shoes. I got the 43.0 which is technically a 9.5 with Altra. Fits perfect, little space between my big toe and the end of the shoe which makes them feel great on the way down. Thats always the test people tend to forget, how do they feel downhill?

The wider forefoot allows my toes to move freely and not binding anything together. I previously ran in the La Sportiva Vertical K size 43 and my toes were constantly killing me. Different shoe but, indicative of sizing and how these are constructed.

Love the idea of Zero Drop. You are totally using your foot muscles strengthening them and not relying on the drop of the shoe to help you along. I know people that also use these on super long runs so not just a short jog that I tend to do.

The sole is sticky and great for trail running. Might be wary when using them as an approach shoe to climb steeper rock where exposure might be an issue. Havent got to really try them on that yet.

The cushion on these is perfect for me. I think I would go with the Superior (less cushioning) to use as an approach shoe, or for just general hiking. The Olympus has the most cushioning which would be great for someone with some knee issues.

Look forward to putting more miles on these! Feel free to hit me up at or 801-736-6398.
