A lightweight, nimble, and moderately cushioned option for backpacking and hiking, the Altra Running Men’s Lone Peak 3.0 Mid NeoShell trail shoe employs a highly water-resistant upper to keep your feet warm and dry, making it ideal for nasty weather and colder conditions.
As with all Altra shoes, the shoe has a FootShape toe box that differs greatly from the aggressive taper of traditional running shoes. This design lets your big toe remain in a straight position while allowing your other toes to spread naturally. This broader cut reduces the risk of bunions, hammer toes, and plantar fasciitis. The shoe also utilizes a Zero Drop platform (height of the heel and the forefront are the same) that encourages a natural stride rather than elevating the heel or manipulating foot position. This is meant to promote better alignment and a more natural posture while on the move which in turn lessens impact.
The shoe’s reinforced extended-length upper is made of an abrasion-resistant, minimally-seamed mesh and has strategic overlays to aid in lateral stabilization and improve support and stability. Polartec NeoShell fabrication repels water while offering better breathability than the “bootie” used in traditional waterproof construction. An integrated GaiterTrap allows for the easy attachment of Altra gaiters (sold separately). A dual-layer EVA midsole with a top layer of Abound cushioning delivers comfort and reduces fatigue. A protective StoneGuard reduces the impact of rocks and roots underfoot.
The shoe has a stack height of 25 mm and weighs roughly 1 pound, 10.6 ounces per pair. A durable DuraTread rubber outsole with TrailClaw has a tacky surface and a lug pattern that together deliver excellent traction on a wide array of terrain.
Sold in pairs, the Altra Running Men’s Lone Peak 3.0 Mid NeoShell hiking shoe is available in men’s full and half sizes.

Real Customer Reviews
- Excellent Shoe
Likes: This is my 2nd pair of these, as I turned the first pair into indoor work shoes.
I use my new ones for hiking mainly. They provide a fair amount of warmth & dryness, though not fully waterproof. I wear size 11 in other Altra shoes, but I wear an 11.5 in these.
Dislikes: This pair arrived missing the insoles, but Customer service at Backcountry Edge had Altra send a replacement pair of insoles and I had them in 2 days!
- Love Altra!
Likes: Super comfortable and love the wide toe box.
Dislikes: The sizing is inconsistent. Order at least 1/2 size larger. The neoshell is different and has a plastic feel, but it does shed water.
