The Lone Peak 4 is a fresh take on Altra's original trail shoe with several significant updates. The new upper will include the same integrated tongue as the previous version but now with static webbing for better cinching ability, a flexible strap overlay for a roomier forefoot fit and a sandpaper textured toe cap. In addition, breathability is improved by way of draining mesh in the heel and forefoot and the decoupled nature of the TrailClaw, as well as multi-directional, carved lugs for improves traction and reduced weight. To top off this already awesome shoe the StoneGuard is completely updated to resemble the skeletal structure of a foot for better performance and dynamic flexibility.
WHY WAS IS DESIGNED
The Lone Peak was designed to tackle gnarly mountain peaks any time of day, any paces, whatever you choose!
WHAT YOU GET WITH IT
The crazy combo of aggressive outsole and tough upper make this one of the hardest working shoes you'll ever own.
MaxTrac rubber on the outsole delivers just what it sounds like- max traction! Take these babies up a peak and see for yourself.
FOOTSHAPE TOE BOX
Allows your toes to relax and spread out naturally for more comfort and stability in uphill climbs and downhill descents.
Places your heel and forefoot the same distance from the ground to encourage proper, low-impact form throughout your trail run.
Energy-return compound sits directly under the foot to reduce ground impact and add a spring to each step.
Hook-and-loop tabs allows strapless gaiter attachment that prevents debris from building up beneath the shoe.
Canted lugs positioned strategically beneath the metatarsals to provide traction at toe off.
A perfect combination of grip, traction and durability that will eat up gnarly terrain like a boss.
Sandwiched between the A-Bound and the EVA midsole, the StoneGuard offers flexible protection from rugged terrain by deflecting rocks into the midsole for a smooth, stable ride.

He said this is the first time in his life that he was able to take shoes out of the box and be 100% happy and comfortable.
He's stoked to try them out on a 100 mile section of the fingerlakes trail next month with me!!
When you take them out of the box, and wear them they seem amazing. I put a couple miles on them when I first got them to check, seemed great for distance. Didn’t wear again until trail. Huge mistake of a shoe.
Add to this that these shoes are pretty lightweight, and you have a shoe ideally suited to travel. The wide toe box deserves emphasis for anyone who has the same problem as me ... over and over I found that toe boxes on shoes are too narrow for me. Then I would go up half a size or a whole size and then the whole shoe felt too loose. Not these shoes -- they fit like gloves without being constricting at all. Laces untied, they feel like slippers.
One last point: Altra Lone Peak 4's are not waterproof. This is not an problem for me, it is a plus. I detest (as in hate, loathe, despise) gore tex shoes, which overheat my feet when the temperature is over 70F/20C and which get soggy anyway in hot or in really wet conditions. These Altras will get wet pretty fast in the rain or on wet ground. And then they dry out again, and they probably dry out much quicker than goretex shoes which have limited permeability and retain water that still lurks inside after a storm. If you want waterproof shoes, then look elsewhere -- I have leather hiking shoes for wet conditions and I take good care of them. I have been wearing my Altra Lone Peak 4's in all but heavy or persistent rain, and of course I will not wear them in cold midwinter snow and slush. I have put my money where my mouth is... I have bought three pairs Altra 4's already. Sometimes companies that make a really great product just discontinue it, and I did not want that to happen to me. When Altra make a discreetly colored all-gray or all-black version, I will buy yet another pair or two!
I have run approximately 18 miles since I got them last week. Tonight my son and I hiked up to a local fire tower and we found the trail to be muddy and then snow-covered! We both wore running shoes, me in the Altras. Our feet were soaked but I was amazed at the grip I had on this fast-hike/trail run with a 50# pack. Cleaned them up as soon as we got home and they are drying now!
Hope Altra begins offering more shoes in 14 because i’m Hooked. Being 6’4” 240, I need to have as much room for my foot to splay out as I can get! Love these! Thanks!

Fits perfect to size, open toe box allows feet to spread and keep cool. No blisters or hot spots.
Hiked around 30 miles so far on two very wet days...
Not waterproof but very fast drying! Just accept the fact your feet are going to get wet but this keeps them cool as well and they dry so quickly!
So much grip on all surfaces.
Lots of features on these shoes and the laces are very strong and never become loose.
Definitely buy again if had too!!
Lots of reports from long distance trails of the toe rubber separating, I've put a couple of hundred miles on them & mine are fine.
Will be using these as the shoe of choice going forward.
The Lone Peaks are lightweight, zero drop, huge toe box and comfy out of the box once I'd pulled the laces out of the top lace hole.
You feel like your bouncing along with enough grip that it feels like you're pushing the Earth backwards rather than moving yourself forward!
The laces are rubbish but I replace all my laces with elastic ones anyway.
I've had LP 3.0, 3.5 and my last pair of 4.0 had done 880km. No holes, little wear and still good for more miles, just a bit less bounce now.
One thing I have noticed is my lack of heel wear as I have shifted from a predominantly hard heel striker to a mid to forefoot runner.
It won't happen overnight, but once you have changed you'll feel better for it.
The 3.0 is favourite as the sole at heel does not extend out so much this was partly why I gave away 2.0 as if I went to gym they felt cumbersome the 3.0 do not the 4.0 is very close to 3.0 as it feels neat on the feet and that’s how I run like a mountain goat 🐐 also wear Inov 8 trailthon 235 which are good for shorter trails
These are WIDE, with plenty of room for the toes to spread during running.
The zero drop, gives a feeling of evenly distributed weight and a natural correct foot form upon impact with the ground.
I have tried Solomens and found them narrow, painfull and not at all suited to my feet or type of running I do.
These are great, thank you.
Speedy delivery too and the price seems fair to me. I'll be ordering another pair of them after I've worn these out.
Very light weight and comfy. Walked 150k on Camino with these, they were great.
