Moderately cushioned and equipped with all-surface traction, the iconic Altra Running Men's Lone Peak 5 trail running shoe is a workhorse that can tackle everything from short, quick outings to 100 milers. Its combination of supportiveness, breathability, and responsiveness has even led to it being embraced by ounce-counting thru-hikers.
As with all Altra Running offerings, the shoe has a FootShape toe box that differs greatly from the aggressive taper of traditional running shoes. This design lets your big toe to remain in a straight position while allowing your other toes to spread naturally. This broader cut reduces the risk of bunions, hammer toes, and plantar fasciitis. The shoe also utilizes a Zero Drop platform (height of the heel and the forefront are the same) that encourages a natural stride rather than elevating the heel or manipulating foot position. This is meant to promote better alignment and a more natural posture while on the move which in turn lessens impact.
The quick-drying mesh upper strikes an excellent balance between breathability and durability and an integrated tongue helps to keep out debris. Streamlined lacing allows for simple and effective fit micro-adjustments. Laser-cut drainage holes in the upper further enhances the shoes ability to dry quickly and keep your feet comfortable. An integrated GaiterTrap allows for the easy attachment of Altra gaiters (sold separately). The shoe's highly-responsive Altra EGO midsole delivers comfort, reduces fatigue, and provides resiliency with every step. Shaped to mirror the skeletal structure of your foot, a protective StoneGuard reduces the impact of rocks and roots.
The shoe has a stack height of 25mm and weighs in at roughly 22 ounces per pair. The MaxTrac rubber outsole has a tacky surface and a multi-directional lug pattern that together deliver excellent traction regardless of terrain.
Sold in pairs and your choice of color options, the Altra Running Men's Lone Peak 5 trail running shoe is available in widths and men's full and half sizes.
