Altra Men's Lone Peak 6 Sneaker
About this deal
If the Altra Lone Peak suits your body and your hikes, you may fall in love with this comfortable, lightweight, fast-drying trail shoe with the roomy toe box and balanced cushioning that restores your lower body's natural biomechanics. If it doesn't suit your body or your hikes, however, you may hate this unsupportive trail shoe with the sloppy fit that puts unnecessary stress on your feet, ankles, and calves before it falls apart.
Let’s not leave out the MaxTrac outsole. Again, it’s the same as the last iteration, which had minimal flaws for me. Deep chevron-shaped lugs are placed directly under the metatarsals of your foot to get optimal traction on a variety of surfaces. These worked wonderfully on softer surfaces, dry surfaces, bouts of snow, and traveled surprisingly smoothly on pavement. Bonus! Being a usability-led shoe brand, Altra often has a few nice features in its shoes. Here it’s the velcro gaiter attachment on the heel, which helps you really waterproof your runs alongside the lacing attachment on the forefoot.Brycen: "I didn't feel much energy return during my training runs. The shoe wasn't very springy, but I enjoyed the ride for daily running." The toebox is almost too roomy for me. It’s not a dealbreaker and many people will love it, but I could handle less space,” one reviewer says.

I had some initial concerns with how roomy the toe box was, but it ended up being a non-issue with tight lacing. Some of the wide footers may find it to be sloppy. Besides the toe box, the Lone Peak 6 was a joy to run in. The Altra EGO midsole provided a comfortable ride that balanced ground feel with cushion. It’s very capable of being a trail-to-road shoe. I’d know because of how many miles I put on them around the harbor.Good points, Chris. I can imagine a narrower foot sliding around like crazy in an Altra shoe. I have a narrow heel and wide forefoot, so find the fit to work well. The cushion feels soft and comfortable underfoot, but doesn’t get in the way of ground feel,” one reviewer says. The tongue on the Lone Peak 6 is fully gusseted, and does a great job of keeping dirt, dust, and debris out of the shoe. The lacing eyelets lay flat on the top of my foot, and have not created any hot spots or pressure points on hikes or runs.
The Altra Lone Peak is known for its reliability and versatility, and the latest version is no different. Altra has been in the trail running business for just over 10 years, and its Lone Peaks have stolen the hearts of many. The brand started with the original Lone Peak, and now we’re up to the Lone Peak 6.0. Much like previous versions, the 6.0 is a zero-drop, mid-cushioned trail shoe, available both in both men’sand women’s.In short: The Altra Lone Peak 6.0 is easily one of the best zero-drop trail running shoes out there. From comfort to overall functionality, it’s a step in the right direction for anyone looking to burn up the trails. Altra Lone Peak 6.0 Review Overview (Photo/Josh Kirchner) The Altra EGO midsole and MaxTrac outsole remain unchanged in the 6. On my first run, the snow was coming down pretty hard towards the end. The ground was entirely coated, yet the grippy MaxTrac outsole provided the confidence to run and not worry about slipping. However, I did notice that a few flakes tended to fly up onto my ankles with each step — though I expect that’s due to the rubber heel lip. Make sure to adjust slowly to a zero drop shoe if this is your first experience. Failure to do so can lead to lower leg issues and overuse injuries.
