Women's Altra Lone Peak 3.5 Trail Running Shoe [jackrabbit.com] $69.98 sz 6-10.5
Men's Altra Lone Peak 3.5 Trail Running Shoe [jackrabbit.com] $69.98 sz 8-11


Best For:
  • Surface: Aggressive, Uneven, Rocky Trails
  • Category: Trail Neutral - This shoe allows your foot to react to the surface beneath it while providing enough midsole to protect it from the surface debris. Intended for runners who have a higher, more stable arch that does not pronate excessively (roll inwards), Neutral Cushioned Trail shoes offer very little or no pronation support while still maintaining the durability needed to handle trails.
Benefits Include:
  • Foot Shape: Allows your toes to relax and spread out naturally for more comfort and stability in uphill climbs and downhill descents.
  • Zero Drop: Places your heel and forefoot the same distance from the ground to encourage proper, low-impact form throughout your trail run.
  • Trail Claw: This unique tread pattern positions lugs beneath your metatarsals for incredible traction in steep climbs and descents.

I would but they don't have my size. Altra Lone Peaks tend to run small on size.

The 3.5 actually run a 1/2 size smaller. The 3.0 were true to size i think. I have owned both and love them. Good for people who like a wide toe box and zero drop.

Thumbs up for the Trail Running deal. Not a fan of 0-offset shoes so it's unfortunately a pass for me...

I hiked several 14ers in these. Also did muir snowfield in them. Great shoes but you need 4 weeks minimum to get used to the zero drop. your calves will be screaming the first couple weeks. But the zero drop does help take stress off the knees as your foot strike changes.

Is zero drop good compared to other shoes like 7mm, 12mm drops? I am not sure what is the advantage of Zero drop.

For those that don't know, drop is the difference in thickness between the heel and the forefoot. Having that extra padding on the heel makes your foot land on the ground differently, and changes the way the impact affects your body. Shoes with a big heel drop can put stress on your knees, as you're more likely to strike the ground with your heel first. Zero drop shoes allow you to strike the ground with the front or middle of your foot more easily, which is actually the proper way to land your feet. This can actually have detrimental affects for some people initially as it can shift the strain from you knees to you ankles, especially if you aren't used to running with a mid foot strike.

A few years ago people started running in "minimalist" shoes with zero drop and basically no padding. Just a piece of rubber on the bottom, because "it's not natural to run with big cushions on your feet," but they didn't really take into consideration that it's not natural to regularly run 5 miles on concrete either, so a lot people developed injuries in their feet and shins. Shoes like this are a good alternative with no drop, but a decent amount it protection front the ground.

If you prefer REI, it looks like these are also on sale for $89.93. Probably a better return policy for most people.

Thanks! Looks like a lot of places are probably clearing them out. They're releasing the 4.0 in the next few months, so I expect to see these on sale more.

Can't speak from experience but these do make a lot of lists when it comes to good trail runners. At this price, you'd be hard pressed to find a better deal on quality hiking shoes.

That's a great explanation. I will prefer zero drop to buy my running shoes. Thanks a lot..👍

Just to be clear, you don't have to have 0mm drop. Nike started selling their Free run line with much smaller heel to toe drops, and have moved away from that substantially, as they were not as popular. They now have 8mm drops unless you buy the extra ugly versions. My Favorites were the Free Run 4.0s with 6mm drops. You just have to pick what feels good and works best for you.

It's the beginning of August , based on what the Altra rep told me at a race a couple weeks ago.
