UK PRICE MATCH PROMISE ON THIS PRODUCT
The Lone Peak is the shoe started it all for Altra and has always been one of the standout shoes in their range and a few improvements to the latest version make it even better.
The Lone Peak 3.0 continues Altra's 'Natural Running' philosopy offering a zero drop from heel to forfoot and a wide toebox to allow your toes to splay and function maximally to absorb impact and propell you into the next step. The wide platform maximises stability and the whole package promotes better running form especially when fatigued.
The latest version of the Lone Peak has seen an increase in the durability and protection offered by the upper to help reduce the potential impacts of trail debris. Specifcally, the materials used are tougher and there is increased overlaying and randing alround the back and toe areas. In addition, the protective StoneGuard sandwiched between the midsole and outsole offers excellent protection against rocks damaging the soles of your feet.
The second major change to the Lone Peak 3.0 is a total redesign of the outsole to incorporate the brand new MaxTrac outsole which provides increased grip on a wide range of off-road conditions. The new outsole is not only more grippy, it is also more durable thanks to the use of a slightly harder rubber in high wear areas.
Altra haven't compromised on comfort and despite the zero drop the Lone Peak is by no means a minimalist shoe. The 25mm EVA stack height with A-Bound Top Layer provides exceptional cushioning however long your run. Add to this the additional cushioning of a 5mm footbed, a non-slip sock liner inner and the roomy toebox and you have a trail shoe that is perfect for training or racing over multiple terrains and distances.
