    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.

    Awesome shoe but..

    • Familiarity: I returned this product before using it
    • Fit: Runs large
    • Size Bought: 10.5

    Everyone says this shoe is true to size. I got it in a 10.5 after running 10.5 in La Sportiva, Merrel and others and found myself to be swimming in it, not just with the wide toe box but with foot slide. I just sized down to a 10, will let you all know how it goes. I think Altra is on to the most fundamentally oriented shoe out there for us obsessed runner folks. Minimal but not under or overkill drop, wide, natural toe box. I'm excited to be an Altra convert.

    Wonderful, minimal trail shoe

    After running well over 300 miles in the Altra Lone Peak 2.5, I feel I can provide some good feedback on how the shoe has treated me thus far. Let's talk about comfort...

    The Lone Peak 2.5 took no time at all to break in, unlike many shoes I've used in the past. The out of box comfort is great and they just keep getting more comfortable. I'd say once I hit 250 miles they were at their highest. Most folks should get 500 miles in at the least in the Lone Peak 2.5, unless you're putting a lot of miles on the road which isn't what this shoe is intended for anyway. The wide toe box can be an interesting feel for first time users. I remember it took me a few months to get used to when I first started using Altra shoes and now it's all I can see myself running in.

    Even if you have narrow feet, don't be deterred. My feet have become stronger and wider since first using the 1.5's years back. The high flexibility of the midsole on the Lone Peak 2.5 is also a favorite attribute of mine. If you're used to stiffer shoes, make sure to take your time adjusting to the Lone Peak. All the muscles and tendons in your feet that have become weak from stiffer shoes will now finally be used!

    What would I change about the Lone Peak 2.5? Here's my chance to be picky... I would like to see two different versions of the same shoe. When I'm doing super technical peak bagging trips in the Lone Peak 2.5, the width can be a little much. On very horizontally slanted ascents my foot moves around too much. Having a version of this shoe that's more narrow would be great for those crazy technical mountain runs.

    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.

    Amazing 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 !

    Hands Down Favorite Trail Shoe

      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.
