I haven't run in the Superiors but I have more than a few pairs of Altras. This brand is known for having zero drop and a wider toe box. If you do get them, ease into wearing them. Zero drop is a bit too get used to.

This is my exclusive running shoe. Basically the benefits of a "barefoot" style shoe (as @hawapino mentioned, zero drop + wide toe box), but with the protection of some padding and a removable rock plate. I'm not man enough to run in Vibrams on the rocky Sierra trails...

Altra's normally come in 3 thickness or cushioning levels, minimum, mid and max. The Superior is a trail running shoe with the thinnest amount of cushioning. I tend to roll my ankles on the trail in any other shoe other than the Superior.

This is my all-time favorite trail shoe. It has a nice wide toe box but still offers a lot of proprioception on the trail (depending on if you leave the rock plate in or take it out...I always remove mine). As hawapino said, definitely ease into it if you're new to zero-drop shoes.

For the cushion levels, the Superior currently sits around where the original Lone Peak was. The King MT is a more minimal trail shoe from Altra, but costs much more (even on closeout), but is my 2nd favorite trail shoe.

Thanks. Growing up running XC we had our days of running barefoot on the field... Killed my arches but oh well. Might check these out some time if they are that barefoot feel. Currently I've been running on On Cloudflyers, previously I've ran in Brooks Adrenaline GTS in the past.

Never owned a trail runner shoe before but in the market for a pair. Been looking at Saloman, LA Sportiva and surprisingly the Altra brand but the Lone Peak series.


I hike a lot, current shoes are some Teva hiking boots and an old Merrel hiking shoe that just needs to be retired already. These sound like they'll be a huge and lighter upgrade to my current shoes.

Would anyone recommend these over the Lone Peak 3.0 or 3.5's? I'm gonna be using them for hiking and running on trails, beaches etc.

Hi Major_Gatsby. We did a blog post all about Altra shoes and the concept behind them. And some local ultra runners also did an extensive review for us. If they can run 100 miles with no blisters, then there must be something good about the brand :-) They actually tun in the Torin.
