Moderately cushioned and equipped with all-surface traction, the Altra Running Women’s Lone Peak 4.0 trail running shoe is a workhorse that can tackle everything from short, quick outings to 100 milers. Its combination of supportiveness, breathability, and responsiveness has even led to it being used by ounce-counting thru-hikers.
As with all Altra Running offerings, the shoe has a FootShape toe box that differs greatly from the aggressive taper of traditional running shoes. This design lets your big toe to 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 quick-drying mesh upper strikes an excellent balance between breathability and durability and an integrated tongue helps to keep out debris. An integrated GaiterTrap allows for the easy attachment of Altra gaiters (sold separately). A dual-layer EVA midsole delivers comfort and reduces fatigue. Shaped to mirror the skeletal structure of your foot, a protective StoneGuard reduces the impact of rocks and roots.
The shoe has a stack height of 25 mm and weighs in at just 1 pound, 1.4 ounces per pair. The TrailClaw rubber outsole has a tacky surface and a lug pattern that together deliver excellent traction regardless of terrain.
Sold in pairs and your choice of color options, the Altra Running Women’s Lone Peak 4.0 trail running shoe is available in women’s full and half sizes.

Real Customer Reviews
- So happy I switched to trail runners
Likes: These are the most comfortable shoes for me. I love the wide toe box. Used them on a recent hike in Florida where we had through mucky swamp. At times I thought my shoes would be pulled off by the muck I had to step in. The lacing system held the on tight.
Dislikes: I got these to replace my Loan Peak 3.5. As much as I loved the 3.5 they started coming apart at the toe after less than 200 miles. I'm hoping these hold up better.
- Best shoes ever!
Likes: No break in necessary. I did a 9 mile hike the first day I wore them without even a hotspot! With the correct size and socks, these shoes won’t let you down!
Dislikes: I love these trail runners so much that I threw away my my regular running shoes to get a regular pair of Altras. Now my husband and daughter are Altra addicts too! I’m going broke! These shoes are pricey, but worth every penny.
