Moderately cushioned and equipped with all-surface traction, the iconic Altra Running Men's Lone Peak 6 trail running shoe is a workhorse that can tackle everything from your local trails to a 100 mile race. 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 broader cut lets your big toe to remain in a straight position while allowing your other toes to spread naturally, reducing the risk for cramped toes, blisters, and other painful conditions that often plague runners. The shoe also utilizes Altra's Balanced Cushioning platform, where the height of the heel and the forefront are the same, to 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. A customizable lacing system allows you to dial in the fit for confidence on any trail. 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.
The shoe has a stack height of 25mm and weighs in at roughly 21 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 6 trail running shoe is available in widths and men's full and half sizes.
