Ideal for thru-hikers or backpackers looking for lightweight support and nimbleness as well as weather protection, the Altra Running Men's Lone Peak All-Wthr Mid hiking boot checks all of those boxes and delivers performance even in rain, snow, and mud.
As with all Altra offerings, the boot has a FootShape toe that allows 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 boot 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 boot's reinforced extended-length upper is made of an abrasion-resistant, minimally-seamed mesh and has strategic overlays to aid in lateral stabilization and improve support and stability. The waterproof eVent fabric wards off moisture while ensuring breathability to keep your feet dry and comfortable. The boot's highly-responsive Altra EGO midsole delivers comfort, reduces fatigue, and provides resiliency with every step.
The boot has a stack height of 25mm and weighs roughly 1 pound, 14 ounces per pair. A highly-durable DuraTread rubber outsole has a tacky surface and a lug pattern that together deliver excellent traction on dirt or rock.
Sold in pairs, the Altra Running Men's Lone Peak All-Wthr Mid hiking boot is available in men's full and half sizes.
