Altra Lone Peak 4.0

Foot soldiers

Brand: Altra

Model: Lone Peak 4.0

Thru-hikers’ feet take a beating. Keep yours (relatively) happy with the Lone Peak 4.0, which offers a combo of support, traction, and weight that’s unmatched for sneaker-type hiking shoes. A 25-millimeter-thick EVA midsole provides cushion for long days under loads of up to 30 pounds, and a midfoot TPU plate softens the blow from rocks and roots. The generous toe box allows for foot splay and the toe swelling that happens while trekking thousands of miles. Note: The new Lone Peak 4.5 is also available now, but we haven’t conducted thorough testing on it yet. 10.2 oz. (m’s 9); m’s 6-16, w’s 5.5-12
