Altra Lone Peak 7
This trail running shoe from Altra is built to run on the trails, and it does so with a ton of quality features and materials.
The legendary Altra Lone Peak 7 continues its tradition of trail prowess to make it one of the best running shoes on the market.
Altra updated the MaxTrac™ outsole compound to make it more durable and perform better in wet conditions. The multi-directional 5 mm lug pattern is ideal for running on smooth or technical terrain.
To give you confidence running on uneven ground, the Lone Peak 7 features a secure heel cup and Altra’s signature FootShaped™ toe box, which is wider to allow your toes to react and splay for a more stable ride.
The Altra EGO™ midsole provides a soft and springy underfoot feel, while the StoneGuard™ protects feet from rocks and sticks, while still being flexible enough for you to run.
Like all Altra shoes, the Lone Peak 7 has the same amount of cushion in the forefoot and heel, or zero heel-to-toe drop, to allow you to run as naturally as possible on the trails.
Altra streamlined the construction of the mesh upper and evolved the design, making it look and feel lighter. The Lone Peak 7 has Altra’s original FootShape™ fit, which is the most voluminous fit Altra makes, perfect for those with a higher volume foot. Plus, it comes in wide for those who need some extra room.

Fans of the Lone Peak can rest assured that the Lone Peak 7 will feel similar to past models with just a few upgrades. The first is the new MaxTrac outsole compound that is made to be more durable and perform better in wet conditions. There are also extra lugs on the lateral heel and medial toe for better grip during landings and toe-offs. Designers then added a heel cup for a bit more stability when running trails.
Altra updated the upper of the Lone Peak 7 as well. Designers removed the drainage holes over the toe and replaced most of the stitching with overlays to give it a more streamlined look and feel. They also changed the lacing pattern, which removed the extra holes in the midfoot and allows you to attach a gaiter to the lace itself and the GaiterTrap on the heel. There is also padding over the first lace pattern on the tongue for extra protection.
