Our View - Altra Lone Peak 4 Mid RSM Men:
The Altra Lone Peak 4 Mid RSM (Rain, Snow, Mud) is an extension of the brilliant Altra Lone Peak family offering mid-height boot with a slightly higher ankle for added protection from water and debris ingression.
An eVent upper material provides waterproof protection while the technically design minimises stitching to increase durability and reduce friction points. Specific Gaiter Trap attachment loops ensure the attachment of the specific Gaiter (available separately) is strapless and highly secure giving you the option to increase protection from debris even further
Incorporation of the well-established features of the Altra trail shoes; Zero Drop and Footshape toebox, means the Mid version feels and functions like a trainer while giving you the added protection of a higher ankle.
The midsole features new more durable cushioning which is balanced in the heel and forefoot for a really well cushioned feel throughout foot contact. Gripwise the Trailclaw and Maxtrac outsole is designed with canted lugs that are positioned strategically to maximise grip and traction throughout contact.
If you are looking for a flexible, natural feeling running or fast hiking boot then the Altra Lone Peak 4 Mid RSM is well worth a look. It provides all the benefits of zero drop and footshape technology with that little extra height to prevent debris and water getting inside.
