ALTRA LONE PEAK 5.0 SE: A SPECIAL EDITION FOR SPECIAL EXPERTISE
The Altra Lone Peak is perhaps the brand’s most iconic shoe. They were born the day Golden Harper (co-founder of the brand along with Brian Beckstead) came up with the enough warm-up of a pair of shoes to be able to remove their heels and balance them. What was the result?, because for the first time in his life Golden wore running shoes that he felt did not bother him when running.
A decade ago, lone peaks reached the top of the Wasatch range and Altra Running was introduced to the world. In this special version, this legend returns with details, colors and materials on the top inspired by the iconic original hiking shoes. Like all Lone Peak 5 models, the Anniversary model features our Altra EGO midsole™ foam and maxTrac™ high-grip sole.
ALTRA LONE PEAK 5.0 SE: UPPER
Everyone knows the design of the Altra deck, a cover designed so that our foot can be moved away. A wide shape in the area of fingers that will provide us with greater comfort as the kilometers pass. It is well known that many runners prefer to have that area more sheltered, but the truth is that the FootShape Toe Box of Altra, personally I think it is a success, especially for wide foot runners as is my case.
On this occasion, the brand for the special edition has chosen details and colors that take us to a decade ago where these shoes were presented to the world. Maybe they are not the most beautiful colors, or the most beautiful design, but it is true that they give a somewhat retro design to the shoe that I personally do not dislike.
We can also appreciate the GaiterTrap, available to allow the hooking of leggings quickly and easily.
