Who should buy the Altra LP Alpine
The plush experience that is the LP Alpine (a.k.a. Lone Peak Alpine) makes it a formidable companion where groomed trails seem long. If you like the sound of that, you’re part of the shoe’s target audience. Now, the LP Alpine is also a must-buy for:
- Outdoorsy men and women who need extra roominess around the toe zone.
- Trail-goers who would like to do away with knee and back pain.
- Striders, especially on level terrain.
Who should not buy the Altra LP Alpine
While the LP Alpine looks water-phobic enough with its mostly canvas upper, it is not the shoe for those who like wading through creeks and streams. For water hiking, they’re better off with the TR1 Junction. Also, those who need extra ankle support should look in the direction of the Lone Peak Hiker instead.
Altra LP Alpine: Pampered feet for hours
Designed with a plush zero-drop sole unit, the Altra LP Alpine highlights long-term comfort above all else. This underfoot platform also delivers a kind of support that offsets tiredness, which is ideal for wearers who are required to stand and walk all day (think mailmen and nurses).
