Initially I really liked these shoes. I ordered them in late August in anticipation of fall rains. I didn't actually start using them until January, so I'm already beyond the return date. To my dismay, the seam split in the shoe after only two months of use and 187 miles of wear. I keep a hiking log and use it to track how many miles I've put my shoes through. Altra's website says their shoes should last between 300-500 miles. I won't be purchasing this brand again.
Warmest winter running shoe even in sub-zero temperatures.
These shoes are the warmest winter running shoes I have tried! The tread is great on hard packed snow and the mealy snow/slush stuff on the streets two or three days after the snowstorm. The shoe runs big and wide. I wanted a wide toe box so my toes wouldn't freeze when I run in sub-zero temperatures. I usually wear a size 8.5 with an orthotic, but I found the size 8 fits perfectly with my orthotic. I wore Topo shoes this summer and fall with a 3mm heel drop, so the zero drop in these Altras was an easy adjustment.
Great for wet and dry conditions
Just ran 30 miles in these in the rain to pace a friend in Rio Del Lago 100 Mile Endurance Run and it did not disappoint! My feet were comfortable the whole time - on slick and wet rocks and clay and sticky and muddy trails- I felt pretty stable and confident that I wouldn't slip and fall. My feet would have stayed pretty dry if I didn't jump and submerge my feet in a deep puddle. Great for dry conditions too, whether rocky fire trails or loose, sandy trails. I highly recommend them.
Love My Lone Peaks!
I haven't gone out for a test run as yet, but they felt good when I tried them on. I'm looking forward hitting the trails in them!
This shoe was not right for me.
heavy, uncomfortable and made me very tired. The heel slipped with every step.
