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 Men’s Lone Peak 3.0 Mid NeoShell 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 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. A Polartec NeoShell lining repels water while offering better breathability than the “bootie” used in traditional waterproof construction. NOTE: As with any low cut shoe, water can still find its way up and over the shoe unless you employ additional protection. 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, 8.6 ounces per pair. The TrailClaw rubber outsole has a tacky surface and a lug pattern that together deliver excellent traction on a wide array of surfaces.
Sold in pairs, the Altra Running Men’s Lone Peak 3.0 Mid NeoShell hiking boot is available in men’s full and half sizes.

Real Customer Reviews
- Great Comfort, Perfect Fit, Lightwieght
Likes: These shoes fit great, with a more open area for my toes, it took some adjusting to get used to. I really like the fit and comfort of these shoes. They are very lightwieght, but have a quality design. No more cramped toes. They also have excellent ankle support. The Neoshell gives these shoes excellent water repellency, so with a quick dip or splash your feet remain dry. The soles offer some of the best grip I have experienced with a shoe. These rate high because of all the great features.
Dislikes: I haven't found anything I dislike about the shoes so far.
- Great traction, stability and toe room. Perfect for backpacking and trail running.
