Altra Lone Peak 2.0
The Lone Peak 2.0 was redesigned to feature more cushioning, more natural movement of the foot, and better breathability in the upper through the use of a quick dry mesh. This is a shoe for the runner who is looking for a tough trail companion. The rubber used on the outsole is extremely sticky and the lug system is designed with multi-shaped and multi-directional lugs to ensure that the runner feels safe and secure on the trail. The shoe features a zero drop and a larger toe box to promote the natural foot movement. The midsole features a unique three-layered technology that is designed to absorb shock and provides added cushioning. This is not a shoe for the runner looking for a sleek, fast shoe. Instead, this is the shoe for the runner who likes a heavier, cushioned, protective ride. The price is a bit high for some, but the protection and durability justify the cost. The look is very athletic with bright colors and a bulkier toe box. Some runners found the overall look to be too clunky.
- Lots of technology elements to keep the foot protected
- Highly durable
- Natural fit and feel
- Limited color option
- I had to size up a half size with these. I love the wide toe box and have a gating that helps keep the water out. These are really good and grippy on wet surfaces just not that great on ice.
- These shoes are not restrictive at all and have been a game changer for me, as someone who is easily injured. These are light and cozy. They are really grippy and the soles are soft so be aware how you use them. They have a great toe box, nice and roomy.
- I have some mean bunions and these have a great spacey toe box that eliminates any issue with rubbing They are a nice hiking boot for sure and I am loving the zero drop style.
- I feel like every time I get a new pair they are na upgrade. These have tns of support and lots of cushioning. I did have to get these a half size up.
- These dry fast have epic toe splay room, and after a 1000 mile on the PCT, one blister. I have knee pain and these really kept that from recurring. They are a bit bulky and crazy but they are so worth it.
- I suffered a torn ACL and needed a shoe that would help me get back into running. This shoe has been a godsend. This shoe relly has been comfortable and super supportive. It is a nice flat shoe, no drop at all. They look funny but I just use them for running.
- These have tons of cushion, have a great zero drop style to them and the toe box is epic. It really is a great shoe .
- These have a great toe box without being sloppy. I do not slide to the front on downward slopes. They have tons of cushioning and have saved my knees. They do not drain well and have a really soft bottom. They are also a bit more on the heavier side.
- I ended up getting stuck in a down oor with these and man did they hold up well. They gripped really good and they were wet but the water drained well. They didn't give me any blisters and my feet were really happy when we after done with the Spartan Race.
- I un an average of 8 miles a day and do the gym and these shoes are so on point. These have more than exceeded my expectations. They hold my huge frame with ease and support. Super comfortable shoe.
- I am in love with the zero drop and the comfort is unbelievable. These work really well with my gaiters. These are really awesome shoes.
- I wear a 8 in altras and a 6.5 in regular shoes if this helps. These are some of the best shoes I have had. The toe box i super wide and they have great padding and stability. I do not get numb feet like I did n my other shoes.
- I ran the AT first day I had these and they never gave me one issue. I run a really technical 14 miles. The grip is top notch and they fit to size, mens 15. My feet really have not felt this good in a pair of trail shoes, ever.
- These are really cushioned and do not feel too over bulky They do not get dirty that easy and are easy to clean. I have put some miles on them and they still look good.
- These have helped me get back into running after some really bad knee and back pain I was suffering from. I also had some toe box issues, these cleared that right up too. They are so roomy and cushioned. Won’t ever get another shoe.
- These have prevented my toes from cramping due to the super wide toe box. They are really great and the zero drop is a dream. These have been a great long distance trail shoe.
- I needed a bit more arch support, so I bought an insole. But, the toe box is so nice and big with so much support in the shoe. I love this shoe.
- These are a pure upgrade. They have so much extra cushion and they have some epic traction. They were great on the muddy trails this weekend.
- They don't weigh a ton and the toe is nice and roomy. These fit me to size.
- I was pleasantly surprised to find the half size larger fit me great. The toe box is really big but i seem to be working great. It is just a different fit than I am used to I think. They are really comfortable and running in them is great.
- My toes are extra wide and these are the only shoes that really fit them right with lots of room to move around. The treads are a bit much and tend to break when you wear them.
- I feel that these use different muscles when running so I switch them out. I can’t really walk in them well. They are really open in the toes and they are great for my running style, I tend to run on the balls of my feet. They are really comfortable and I would definitely recommend them.
- I am taking it slow with these, getting used to the zero drop is a doozy. I have muscles I didn't know about. They are really well fit and didn’t need any size adjusting like I had read about. I got these because they dry fast too and I am a hiker.
- These are good for mid-distance running and hiking. I had to get used to the wide toe box, but they are really growing on me. I dig uhm!
- I always get Altra because they are so great in the toes and work with my bunions. However, these are way too small. Everything about it smaller: the length, the width, the toe box, which I am so mad about.
- These shoes have no grip. I loved everything else about the shoe. However, due to the grip issue, it was like I was ice skating. I ended up getting a severe sprained ankle on the AT. I also slipped in a bathroom. Major fail.
- They changed their toe box. That is what they are known for and it is really a step down, way smaller.
- These shoes had my feet swimming all over the dang place. I bought another pair smaller and they were not stable at all. They fit perfect but my toes would jam into the sides of the shoe. They also keep sliding off my heel. They ended up being really slippery too, which is really dangerous. I need a shoe that I can trust. They do not flex and are hard on the balls of the feet. Poorly made shoe in my opinion.
- Couple things: these are too small compared to past models, I am not a zero drop person, AT ALL, they had no toe protection. I also was slipping when I took them on the trail, super dangerous.
- These are lacking in tread and cushioning. They were really not comfortable. Also, the lugs were breaking off too soon, like a couple weeks.
- Zero drop for maximum balance and a natural feel
- Foot shape toe box allows for a natural toe splay
- Stone Guard Rock Protection Unit and Gaiter Trap keep debris from entering the shoe
- A-Bound midsole material provides great shock absorption
- Traditional EVA midsole foam conforms to the shape of the foot
- Trail Claw outsole features multi-shaped and multi-directional lugs
