The Altra Lone Peak Off-Road Running Shoes are one of Altra’s most popular models. They should offer great grip and performance on a wide variety of terrain. The Lone Peak 8 features a refined ripstop mesh upper that should deliver better durability. Although, they’re already known for delivering lots of durability. Made with Altra’s Original FootShape™ fit, they provide the most spacious fit in the toe box within the brand’s range. If you’re looking for broad fitting trail running shoes, the Lone Peak 8 are likely to suit you. With Balanced Cushioning™, you should feel confident on uneven terrain. To explain further, there’s no difference between the height of the heel and the forefoot. This is likely to result in more lateral stability on challenging routes. This doesn’t mean protection is compromised. With a 25 mm stack height, the Altra EGO midsole foam should feel protective and energetic at the same time. There’s also a StoneGuard™ that helps prevent sharp objects penetrating the midsole. A MaxTrac outsole with TrailClaw lugs grips on an array of surfaces. This includes both wet and dry ground. If you expect the terrain you run on to be pretty variable, the Altra Lone Peak 8 grip should help you maintain your pace.
