Product Summary

Designed to handle any trail, the Altra Men’s Lone Peak 6 features their signature MaxTrack outsole, which offers a high-level of grip, traction, and durability on any terrain. In addition, the Lone Peak 6 comes with canted lugs on the outsole placed beneath metatarsals (forefoot), which further enhance the shoes’ traction capabilities. According to some reviews, the Lone Peak 6’s flexibility and comfortable fit are two areas that make this shoe stand out. The combination results in a shoe that is easier to maneuver over rough terrain.

The Alta Men’s Lone Peak 6 comes with the patented Balanced Cushioning platform which creates a zero heel-to-toe drop. The ergonomically designed toe box is roomy enough to prevent the dreaded black toenails sometimes experienced when the shoe feels constrictive. Users appreciate the Altra EGO foam along the bottom of the shoe, which provides a good rebound with each foot strike.

Several reviewers complained that the upper was less than durable and broke down after several wears. While these shoes are cushioned, it is a moderate cushioning which, if you prefer a lot of cushion, may be an issue. For some, the lace closure made it challenging to find the ideal fit.
