Altra Lone Peak 1.5 Sneak Peek

Altra Lone Peak 1.5 Men's Shoe

When released in 2011, the Altra Lone Peak offered what few other trail shoes did: zero drop with a rugged construction and padded platform. Though revolutionary at first (relatively, of course), the Lone Peak soon faced some low-drop (and arguably better looking) competition in models like the New Balance MT110, Inov8 Trailroc 245, and Merrell Mix Master 2.

In attempt to rekindle its flame and reach a new sales “peak,” Altra has introduced the Lone Peak 1.5, a mostly cosmetic update to their original trail shoe. We think the new look is a big leap forward, and should help to get the shoe a little more of the attention it deserves.

What to Watch For

  • Bold Colorways: A departure from the bland grey and yellow of its predecessor, the 1.5 comes in hot Red for men and an Orange/Lime combo for women – colors guaranteed to stand out on the trails.
  • Reduced Overlays: The removal of several overlays around the midfoot should yield a more flexible and adaptive upper, as well as a small drop in weight.
  • Modest Weight: Expect the 1.5 to come in at 9.9 oz for a Men’s size 9 and an ounce less for a Women’s size 8.
