Conquer the trail, no matter the weather.
Sprinting up steep alpine trails is no easy task. It's even tougher when you consider the heavy precipitation trapped by imposing ranges and formidable peaks. Protect yourself from soaking-wet trails with the Altra Men's Lone Peak 3.0 Neoshell Trail Running Shoe. Equipped with the weatherproof protection and improved ventilation of a Polartec Neoshell membrane, the Lone Peak 3.0 Neoshell keeps your feet blissfully dry from pouring rain, puddle splashes, and mud-caked trails, while stil breathing exceptionally well.
Staying true to Altra's Zero Drop running philosophy, the Lone Peak 3.0 features a Zero Drop platform that places the heel and forefoot at the same distance from the ground. Not only does this design platform naturally align your feet, but more importantly, it promotes smooth landing without the high-impact of an elevated heel. Going one step further for a natural running position, FootShape design naturally spreads out toes, instead of the squeezed stance of traditional running shoes with narrower toe boxes.
Protecting your feet, StoneGuard maximizes protection from stone bruises when you're cruising across craggy ridges and rocky mountain trails. The cushioned EVA midsole lends the shoe a plush feel without sacrificing ground feel or being overly bulky. And because you'll be running up and down inclines, the TrailClaw lugged sole ensures traction for sprinting uphill and braking control on steep downhills.

- Q & A
Best Zero Drop shoe
- Familiarity: I've put it through the wringer
- Fit: True to size

All day I am on my feet and conventional sneakers would wear them out after a long day at work. I had heard so much about zero drop shoes and I have tried some that had very little sole to them. I could feel every pebble underfoot. These have an enormous amount of cushion. They are light, they are quick. I feel like I can stand in them all day long. I intentionally got a half size larger just because of comfort. I haven't tried them out on the trail yet, just have them for work. Also, the design gets me a bunch of comments. Highly recommend these or any of the Altra name.
I've worn these shoes in all kinds of weather over the past month. Rain, mud, snow, and slop. They perform as advertised. My feet are warm and dry after every run. Tread is aggressive and helps keep you upright when things are slick. The upper is more substantial than the LP 2.5. The cut is definitely more "streamlined" so I needed to order a 1/2 size up from my usual size. Good shoe!

I've been trying to find these shoes in my size for quite some time. Just picked a pair up and wore them down to cedar city over the weekend. Very nice shoes, they have awesome grip. And very comfortable as well.
Lightweight & amazing fit for wide feet

I picked up a pair of these somewhat recently and am really liking them.
I have a pair of the Lone Peak 2.5 without the waterproof Neoshell and in a side by side comparison it seems that these fit a bit smaller, even though my 2.5s are 10.5 sized. The previous version have a super large toe box which is great for groomed trail running and long treks as they are pretty much guaranteed to never blister up your toes. I have wide feet so they're great for me.
This current version seems to have reduced the size of that toe box - streamlined them even, not a bad thing, just different.. the 2.5s were borderline floppy. I haven't had them in a wet scenario yet but plan on using them this winter for a trek around Torres Del Paine.
Thumbs up to Altra for consistently producing quality products.
