Wide feet Rejoice!

Comments about Mens Altra Lone Peak 3.0 Trail Running Shoe:

Have been running 3 weeks in these and LOVE them. I am a size 10 women's shoe but have been wearing men's size 9 in Saucony and Mizuno for 15 years because I need a wider toe box. I initially got the size 9 in these (men's) but they were too short, so sent them back for a 9.5 and they fit well, have plenty (as in PLENTY) of room in the toe box and my toes don't hit the front of the shoe on downhill trails. I wonder if I could wear a women's shoe there is so much room. Your toes actually go straight ahead in the shoe. The traction is excellent, holding well on slippery surfaces and super steep stuff. I use them for road and trail, about 30-35 miles/week, wear a neutral shoe. I did do shorter runs (< 6 miles) for 2 weeks as recommended when new to zero drop, before going over 10 mile trail runs. This is the shoe for me.

Very rocky trail running. Nice and light with excellent cushioning but needs a rock plate to protect from sharp rocks. Upper doesn't breathe enough for hot summer runs.

Good shoes right out of the box

By Jason

Comments about Mens Altra Lone Peak 3.0 Trail Running Shoe:

Right out of the box I used these for a 25 mile hike in GSMNP. No blisters or hot spots. The cushion felt pretty solid but I thought it would be a little more cushiony. My feet hurt a little at the end of the hike. That said it was 25 miles and 6000 feet elevation gain so I guess your feet are going to hurt a little. I'm normally a heal toe guy so I can't invision running in these yet. But hiking for sure.

Amazing Shoe

By James

Comments about Mens Altra Lone Peak 3.0 Trail Running Shoe:

Great shoe, nice and comfortable but the greatest point of difference is the wide toe box. I have long but medium width feet and never thought that a wide toe box was needed but I was wrong. As a forward foot striker the wide toe box feels great as your toes can spread out in the box and really help with balance, push off and comfort. I heard some complaints of feet swaying on tough terrain because of the extra room but I tightened down the laced a little tighter than normal and my improved foot strength stopped any unwanted movement. I also really like the zero toe drop. Love these shoes.

Just tried Altras and found the wide toe box to be very comfortable. I transitioned from regular running shoes to the altras without any problems. I use them for running off road and as an all-around casual shoe.

Comments about Mens Altra Lone Peak 3.0 Trail Running Shoe:

Loved my Altra Superior 2.0 for all kinds of trails but wanted more cushioning. Also love my Altra Torin 2.5 for road running. However, do not like the fit and feel of these Lone Peaks. Compared to the Superior, they are narrower, longer, and sloppy feeling - my feet uncomfortably move around inside the shoe and lateral stability is poor. After trying in vain to love these for 200 mi, I'm trying the Olympus next.

Comments about Mens Altra Lone Peak 3.0 Trail Running Shoe:

This is not my favorite Altra shoe, but it does a solid job in certain instances. Pro: Normal fantastic Altra wide toe box, normal Altra zero drop, and excellent traction even in really slick footing. Cons: The mid foot feels narrow on the inside of the arch and overall the shoe feels sloppy in technical terrain. I think this is common in the larger stack height Altra Shoes such as the Paradigm or Olympus. In contrast Hoka Clifton's and Challengers while also having giant stack heights never ever felt sloppy to me. I think this is a good shoe for those much longer runs where the trail isn't (or is minimally) covered in roots, rocks, etc. Those nice open trails where your just cruising along. For technical trails I stick with the greatest trail shoe, the Superior!

Good trail shoes, just maybe not on technical, rocky trail

By Cory

Comments about Mens Altra Lone Peak 3.0 Trail Running Shoe:

I first did a easy paved run to see how the shoes felt, and I could tell a difference in the 0 rise, but it wasn't dramatic. When I took to a technical 10 mile trail I decided a felt too many of the sharp rocks. I like the shoes in general, the nice fit and construction, but prefer Hoka type cushioning. Just a preference.

20 Mile Trail Walks in Substantial Comfort

By Michael

Comments about Mens Altra Lone Peak 3.0 Trail Running Shoe:

I use these shoes for trail hiking/running. I traditionally used hiking boots and this was my first experience walking/running 20 miles in these shoes. What a difference. The soles absorbed the trail much better than traditional trail boots. I had no blisters and my feet were noticeably less abused than when I used traditional trail shoes. Also, the large toe box prevented blisters that I have gotten in the past from ordinary trail shoes because my toes would swell and create additional friction points.

Only held back by a fit...that doesn't fit

By Timothy

from undisclosed

Verified Buyer

Comments about Mens Altra Lone Peak 3.0 Trail Running Shoe:

Pretty much all the things I was worried would go wrong with this update have gone wrong. I know that it's built on the same shaped last as the previous version, but because of the modifications to the upper, it just doesn't fit well anymore. My biggest complaint is that the shoe is too shallow at the toes. Going up a half size doesn't seem right because the space is still there at the base, but my toenails hit against the much more rigid top of the shoe in an uncomfortable way. It's too bad, because there are so many other obvious and welcome improvement, like the drastic reduction in lateral sliding through the midfoot and heal. I really hope they can get the fit figured out in the 3.5's so Lone Peaks can go back to being the best trail running shoes I've ever worn!

Best Trail Shoes I owe!

By Brant

Comments about Mens Altra Lone Peak 3.0 Trail Running Shoe:

I have the LP 2.5 and love them so when the 3.0's came out I had to have them. So far I've run in them a few times but find them to be a more comfortable, stylish shoe than it's solid predecessor. The cushioning is similar but I feel the lugs provide better grip and the uppers are more durable and sturdy. I look forward to running a trail marathon in them next weekend and a 50k shortly after and will likely wear them for my upcoming 50 miler. Great shoe, confident, and conformable!

      Comments about Mens Altra Lone Peak 3.0 Trail Running Shoe:

      This is my third pair of Lone Peaks. My first pair was the LP2.0 in a size 10, and my feet fell in love with them until the uppers and soles both disintegrated at 185 miles. Then I got the LP2.5 and settled on a size 9.5. Those lasted many hundreds of miles - I probably should have replaced them sooner, but I was waiting for the LP3.0. My first pair of LP3.0 in a size 9.5 seemed to fit decently except for my toes, which jammed the the narrowed toe box - what happened to the footshape toe box? The size 10 gave me adequate toe room but my feet were slipping and sliding through the midfoot and heel, no matter how I laced them. Thankfully, Road Runner Sports still has the LP2.5 available until I can try to figure out the fit idiosyncrasies of the Superior or Olympus.

      Best Trail Shoes Ever! I had the chance to road test some demos back in January and have been anxiously awaiting the July release. The best shoes are the ones you don't ever think about when you are running. These are those shoes. The fit is perfect, the cushion just right, and the grip is spectacular. I have so much confidence bombing downhills. Yet they are comfortable enough to go long. I've ran up to 50 miles in one stretch in the demos and I plan on wearing in my next 100. Buy these shoes!
