I originally bought these shoes to use for trail running in Tucson. I quickly learned they are no good for the type of terrain here in southern Arizona. Most trails in my area are rocky, and the Altra Lone Peak 2.5 shoes simply do not have enough midsole cushioning for rocky trails. I could feel every rock and stone through the soles, and it hurt to land with the full force of my weight while running on this kind of terrain.
By contrast, I've found these shoes are excellent for hiking and walking. The uppers are made of an elastic material that stretches and breathes better than any other shoe I've ever worn, and so in the extreme heat of Tucson, the Altra Lone Peak 2.5s help to keep my feet cooler than typical hiking shoes with thick uppers surrounding the lacing area. Furthermore, a lot of the trail terrain in southern Arizona also consists of loose gravel that is easy to slip and slide on, and the bottom soles of the Altras are designed to grip this kind of terrain well. Additionally the wide, almost clown-shoe like forefoot helps to improve stability and grip when walking down steep trails.
I think the Altra Lone Peaks are ideal for trail walking and hiking in hot climates. They could work for trail running in terrain that is not rocky -- ideally on woody, softer trails in forested areas. I will likely buy another pair as general purpose walking and trail hiking shoes, but I would not run in them.
I loved and hated this shoes at the same time; while you have big room for your toes they are a bit narrow on the arch and my wide and flat feet do not welcome this. Also they have a bit of a raise in the arch that can be a little uncomfortable from time to time but it was no big deal for me. They run a bit small, i would order at least half size more. If you are travelling through really rough terrain (for me it was the jagged rocks in PA) you will need an insole if you plan on using them for more than a couple of days, the soles are thin and not prepared for that kind of terrain. Finally the mesh is the first point of failure of this shoes as you can see in the pics. Now for the good part they are really confortable with lots of room for your toes to wiggle, they dry really fast, good feel of the ground while still getting a decent amount of protection, the gaiter trap is pretty useful.
I would recommend especially if your feet is not as wide as mine, and if you don't plan on hiking thorugh fields of jagged rocks for a prolonged time.
