  • The Altra Lone Peak NeoShell features a new redesigned upper. It uses durable and waterproof materials that keep moisture from entering the shoes while keeping its breathability feature. It keeps the foot well-ventilated all throughout the run.
  • This Altra shoe also comes with an enhanced durability feature. The material used and the construction are designed to give protection and comfort with the highest level of durability especially on high wear areas.

The Lone Peak NeoShell is available in standard running shoe length and widths for both men’s and women’s version. Those with wider forefoot and medium measurements can experience comfortable fit on this shoe. The midfoot and the heel areas are of standard measurements and the forefoot is wide, allowing toe splay.


The outer sole of the Lone Peak NeoShell uses the brand’s TrailClaw outsole technology, a super-sticky rubber element that has aggressive lugs for reliable traction. The claws under the toes provides impressive grip on trails and the trail rudder on the heel gives added control during uphill climbs and downhill plunges.


The shoe uses the dual layer EVA and A-Bound midsole technology that delivers reliable cushioning and soft underfoot protection. The A-Bound element attenuates shock efficiently for a more responsive ride and it is also used in the Altra Lone Peak 4.0.

The Natural Ride System follows the natural foot shape for ultimate comfort. It encourages natural foot mechanics and natural foot movement.


The upper of the Altra Lone Peak NeoShell uses the Polartec Neoshell upper element that delivers a waterproof attribute from the outside with an impressive comfort and breathability on the inside. This upper coverage is highly durable.

It also has an asymmetrical lacing design that conforms to the natural shape of the foot for an enhanced feel and fit. It also has velcor gaiter trap attachment for quick donning of a gaiter.
