    I've worn several iterations of the Lone Peak before and although they've always been really comfortable, I've found that the upper of the shoe is too loose for me on technical terrain. My foot would sometimes feel like it would slide or spill off the sole creating potentail for rolling my ankle. The new update seems to have solved this. The upper feels more secure and gives me confidence on rugged terrain. There also seems to be improvements to the sole and tread of the shoes where it seems to last longer and be more durable.

    The wide toe box is a game changer. Also helps that I bought shoes that actually fit my feet.

    Altras are great. Lone peak runs great on trails but the lugs are too far apart in the heel resulting in excessive wear on our road to gravel trails.  If we could get them with more rubber around the heel they'd be great.  Also the sizing is hit or miss.  Sometimes a 9 1/2 works other times it's too big or small even in the same shoe size and style and color.  Quite odd.

  • Love these for trail, hiking, backpacking

    Since I switched to these for train running, I stopped losing toenails, always a win.

    Took maybe 25 miles to break in. Before that had a little heel lift and the fit wasn’t quite perfect. Now they feel great. Good traction and protection from rocks without being clunky. Ground feel is good. A little more structured than the lone peak 6 which for me was a little floppy at times.

    Can't go wrong with Altra design; natural foot shape, particularly good for supinators

    Great shoe. Feels amazing out of the box. Wear it on gravel and dirt trails. Boggs down on grass courses. Haven't tried them a technical trail course yet. Also a good light hiker. Added stretch laces for more comfort and convenience.

    As an avid Altra user over the past 6 years I have worn nearly all models of their daily road and trail trainers.  The Lone Peak 7 was their stable moderately to high cushioned daily trail runner.  The 7th iteration of the Lone Peak has been stripped down to feel like a lightly to moderate cushioned nimbel trail shoe.  Its funny because I thought Altra already had a nimble trail shoe in the Altra Superior line.   The upper, the grip, the lock down is all sufficient in the Lone Peak 7, but the support and cushioning feel like the first few iterations of the Altra Superior.  The Lone Peak 7 has no rock plate (if it does I don't notice it at all) and you can feel jagged rocks and roots while running on technical trails which is annoying as hell when you spend $150 on a TRAIL SHOE.  The cushioning in the forefoot is moderate, but the cushioning in the midfoot to heel area is very minimal.  While the shoe is light and nimble I would personally choose the current Altra Superior model as it is $50 bucks cheaper and has just as much (if not more cushioning) in the heel and midfoot, equivalent grip and upper.  I give the Altra Lone Peak 7 a 7/10 b/c its still a comfortable shoe that performs well on chill to moderate trails and I haven't had any injury issues while wearing them.  I just personally feel that the original idea of the Lone Peak line has been lost.
