A Polartec Neoshell membrane keeps out water yet allows foot sweat to evaporate, and the padded collar fends off dirt, rocks, and snow.
The new Lone Peak 3.0 Mid will be made using Neoshell fabric, for lightweight, breathable, waterproof capabilities.
The downsides however are also pretty significant, the biggest being the rather poor waterproofing. The light weight also means that it's not as tough and rugged as a true hiking boot would be.
This is a lightweight waterproof boot with all the popular features of the trail running shoe, zero drop, foot shaped (wide toe box) and lots of cushioning.
- The Lone Peak 3.0 NeoShell Mid features the new Altra MaxTrac Sticky Rubber with TrailClaw. It is designed to deliver incredible grip and durability in varied terrains.
- The running shoe also comes with a reinforced toe cap that gives enhanced toe protection while running on the trail.
The Lone Peak 3.0 NeoShell Mid is true to its size. It has a medium fit in the heel, midfoot and forefoot. The toe box is wide enough for the toes to move freely. It comfortably accommodates medium and wide-footed runners. It is available in standard D and B widths.
The Altra Lone Peak 3.0 NeoShell Mid utilizes the AltraMax sticky rubber compound that is engineered to deliver reliable traction and durability on multiple terrains. The TrailClaw lugs strategically located under metatarsals gives added traction whenever necessary.
The shoe uses EVA foam in its midsole to provide durable underfoot cushioning. It comes with the A-Bound Top Layer midsole compound that is designed for resiliency. In between the EVA foam and the A-Bound compound is the Stone Guard sandwich rock protection that disperses shock on landing and at the same time protects the foot from stone bruising.
The shoe also has the Natural Ride System that promotes proper foot mechanism for natural foot movement.
The upper of the Altra Lone Peak 3.0 NeoShell Mid uses the abrasion-resistant mesh that is designed to deliver breathability and comfortable foot environment. The Polartec NeoShell lining is added to keeping the foot dry even on wet conditions. The shoe also comes with a velcro gaiter attachment that prevents debris from entering the shoe.
