Sharing a name with a sheer behemoth in Utah's Wasatch Range, the Lone Peak 3.0 Women's Trail Running Shoe didn't get its name by coincidence. Altra's founders were raised in the shadows of the jagged mountain range, and the Lone Peak was built to tackle punishing ascents and unforgiving singletrack in the spirit of the peak itself. This year, the cushioned trail shoe returns with a brand-new MaxTrac outsole and TrailClaw lugs, which keep it together on scree fields and rocky descents with MaxTrac's stickiness and effective lug arrangement. Meanwhile, Altra's proven Foot Shape platform and Zero Drop construction allows your foot moves naturally as you run.

Altra's exaggerated V-shaped last returns to the Lone Peak 3.0, providing your toes with a generous amount of space to splay out as you run. Being the women's version, Altra shaped the Lone Peak with its Fit4Her last, which is adapted to accommodate the slight, but significant shape differences in men's and women's feet. The midsole flexes to match the natural inclination of your tendons and bones to ensure comfort reduce the risk of injury. While your toes enjoy their newfound freedom, settle into a long run on hardpack as 25mm of cushy EVA foam absorbs fatiguing impact. The shoe's zero drop construction encourages a mid-foot landing, and Altra includes an unobtrusive rock plate along the bottom of each shoe to protect against sharp jabs.

  • Conquer harsh terrain with the Lone Peak's improved outsole
  • Breathable mesh upper lends lateral support without hot spots
  • All-new MaxTrac outsole for sticky grip on slippery rock
  • Lace-up closure allows for a streamlined fit around the heel
  • Altra's unconventional shoes focus on matching your foot's natural shape

Great shoe for trails

  • Familiarity: I've used it once or twice and have initial impressions
  • Fit: True to size

Got these shoes recommended to me for my trail runs. With the Zero drop in the shoes it was an adjustment with running with zero drop, but after a few runs I got use to it and it helped with the impact on my joints. Specifically my knees and ankles. Runs true to street shoe size and there is minimal breaking in on these shoes

Great shoes!

I didn't realize what I was getting myself I to when I bought these shoes, I had just heard about the brand. At first I hated them because it seemed so much harder to run. Now that I have learned about zero drop shoes I understand why it was so hard. I have transitioned now and I am never looking back. These shoes are great. I no longer experience pain in my feet, knees, or lower back after running. I raced a challenging trail race in them and they provided the cushion and grip I needed to stay safe. All other shoes feel uncomfortable now! I only gave 4 stars because the insoles gave me bad blisters on my arch and I had to trim them with scissors.

Backpacking Approved

  • Familiarity: I've used it several times
  • Fit: True to size
  • Size Bought: 9.5

I wanted to go the lightweight, breathable, water draining, quick-drying route of a trail runner for backpacking...

I tried on 8 or 10 different options and finally settled on these for overall fit and comfort, as well as a bit of protection around the sides from small particles getting in. I have a medium to wide foot, and really wanted to try out the Altra toe box. These fit my feet great from the heel to the toe (by comparison the Altra Superior has a narrower heel that didn't work for me).

I ended up pairing them with a pair of Outdoor Research Sparkplug Gaiters (super light gaiter) which clip to a small metal ring near the toe, and velcro in to the heel. It was a major winning combo for keeping small rocks out of my shoes! SO STOKED!

Here are the gaiters:

For 3 days of backpacking these fully lived up to my expectations and I was extremely thankful for the comfort, lightweight, breathability, and quicker drying times.

After getting full submerged in water, they have also maintained their shape just fine.

The only small-ish downside is that I would often prefer a vibram sole for the extra grip on all the rock we hike on around Utah. These do have really good grip to begin with, but there were a couple spots when I did wish for a full on vibram sole. I had to make a compromise those, and I am still extremely happy with this purchase!

Sizing also runs normal as I wear a 9.5 in most street shoes, and the 9.5 in these was perfect.

I should also mention the color looks better in person. Still not winning any fashion awards, but the blue is a darker blue with a hint of green, and to me, looks a lot better in person.

Better Fit and Performance.

If you were like me and at all struggled with the fit (and as a result, the performance) of the 2.5, I can attest to the fact that the 3.0's fit has been tenfold improved for a more snug feel, but without compromising the dependable wide toebox that Altra is known and loved for.

More specifically, the Lone Peak features a more generous and secure heel cup. I felt that in the 2.5's, the heel slippage and sloshing around was exacerbated by the low cup. Additionally, the upper in the 3.0 has been totally revamped for additional protection and torsional stability when trucking through varied terrain. This was perhaps my #1 complaint about the 2.5 - I just felt like I was going to roll out off the platform. However, now, it's a much more dependable feel: way more secure. The toebox is to-be-expected in the sense that its girthy and accounts for your toes splaying. Additionally, the midsole seems to be a bit more generous and is SUPER bouncy as a result. Really loving the performance thus far.

Bottom line: Comfortable, supportive, and good for your feet. That being said, I might be an Altra Trail Shoe convert! I've been a longtime fan of the Brooks cascadias, but I've been experiencing some major discomfort in the forefoot areas because of the recent changes (more narrow in the toe box, ugh!) so I made the switch back to Lone Peaks (despite being semi-apprehensive of doing as such). However, I'm way stoked that I did.

Ps. I sized down from my typical 8.5 size. There appears to be a major size discrepancy between Altra's road and trail shoes. I say this because I wear an 8.5 in the Altra Paradigm and they fit perfectly, but the 8.5 in the Lone Peak's was enormous on my foot. So, food for thought!

Great fit right out of the box

  • Fit: True to size
  • Size Bought: size 8

I have a wide forefoot and normal heel. Usually if I get room for my forefoot, the heel is sloppy, but not with these shoes! I plan to use them for lightweight backpacking, both on and off trail so I need something with an agressive tread. I haven't tried them on really rugged terrain yet, but I think they will work great. I'll be doing a 2 week trip in Wyoming's Wind Rivers - I'll see then how they hold up.

Favorite running shoe

I started running in these shoes last summer while training for the Leadville 100 run. Since I was logging LOTS of miles weekly, I needed something extremely comfortable that could handle the steep trails of the Colorado Rockies. I normally have a size 9.5 foot and went for the 10 since I needed something with enough room to accommodate potentially swollen feet over long distances. The toe box on this is pretty wide, and I have a ridiculously wide forefoot with Taylor's bunionette on both feet. This shoe fit great right out of the box, which is perfect since I needed to use a medium weight sock for the terrain that I'd be running. I'd normally go with a slightly snugger fit for running so that I could wear a thinner sock, but obviously I wasn't doing any "ordinary" running. With a 25mm cushy stack height and a wider toebox, I found that this is THE shoe for the Leadville 100. The angulated hexagonal lugs on the soles provide ideal traction for running up the steeps, and the little bit of space in the toe box prevents jamming when running down the steeps. The upper construction has improved from previous models with a little more structural integrity without compromising any of the ventilation. In addition to running on trails, I also run with this shoe on the road, and they work exceptionally well on pavement. After about 400 miles in these shoes, the tread doesn't appear to have worn down, but the sides are starting to bust just a wee bit, but that's something that almost always happens because of my obnoxiously wide forefoot. I highly recommend this to a trail runner who has a wide forefoot and narrow heel and wants to run a great variety of trails at longer distances.

I don't like these as much as my last pair. They fit differently. I'm still trying to get used to them. They are comfortable since I am on my feet all day.


    Let me just say that the color of these looks way better in person than it does on the website. The Blue is a little bit darker and then the orange doesn't look so salmon. I got these for my girlfriend and she says "I grew up running in Brooks and then made the switch to La Sportiva. After a bad bout with shin splints, I decided to switch it up and try a new brand. These took a couple days of getting used to the wide toe box (they felt a bit big at first), but quickly got used to them and am super happy with my purchase. They're great for running, hiking, and everyday wear. Size 6, true to size."


    • Familiarity: I gave it as a gift but have feedback to share

    Well I gave these as a gift to my Mom. Not much feedback yet. But tmwgst sold her was they are a wide foot shoe (she has wide feet). So she was looking for a shoe she could walk in and have room to be comfortable. Well after seeing the quality I just ordered myself a pair
