- Room to spread your toes for comfort and agility: The roomy fit of the shoe uses Altra's original FootShape design, which offers the most space of their fit options. Designed to contour to your actual foot shape, the 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 hikers.
- Long-lived cushioning: The Altra EGO foam midsole provides responsive, moderate support with every step. Whether you're stepping out for a lunchtime loop or ready to tackle a multi-day hike, the soft, cushioned feel helps reduce fatigue without feeling mushy and the light energy return rebound helps make that next stride easier.
- Solid traction for the long haul: The grippy MaxTrac outsole balances confident traction with a long-lived rubber compound so you can enjoy miles and miles of hiking without worrying about your footing.
- Even platform underfoot from front to back: With a 25mm stack height that puts your heel and forefoot at the same distance from the ground, the Balanced Cushioning platform 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.
What about sizing?
Sold in pairs and your choice of colors, the Women's Lone Peak Hiker 2 hiking boot is available in a standard width and women's full and half sizes. Due to the FootShape design the fit may feel roomier than your average hiking boot but the length is consistent with standard sizing.
