Description of Altra Lone Peak NeoShell Running Shoe - Walnut
What good is waterproof when your feet are sitting in a puddle of sweat? The Lone Peak NeoShell® - a shoe with a waterproof exoskeleton - is made of a fabric that's waterproof on the outside yet breathable from the inside. Other waterproof shoes deliver waterproof capabilities but leave an absorbent upper outside of the waterproof booty, adding excess weight and moisture to your shoe. Altra has eliminated that absorbent upper and brought the waterproof all the way to the outside of the shoe. It's designed to fight off water and release heat to keep your feet cool and dry. It's better than waterproof!
In addition, the FootShape™ toe box lets your toes relax and spread out naturally for greater stability and comfort in shifting terrain. And the flexible StoneGuard™ rests above the midsole to deflect sharp, jagged rocks from digging into your feet.
The moderate cushioning of the Lone Peak NeoShell® is a go-to for runners looking to protect their feet, improve form and reduce impact over long distances.

Allows toes to relax and spread out naturally and the big toe to remain in a straight position for more comfort, speed and stability.
Grid-like flex grooves in the midsole allow your foot to flex where it needs to for more speed and improved performance.
Energy-return compound sits directly under the foot to reduce ground impact and add a spring to each step.
Places your heel and forefoot the same distance from the ground to encourage natural, low-impact running form throughout your run.
Offers flexible protection from the rugged terrain by deflecting rocks into the midsole for a smooth, stable ride.
This unique trail outsole positions canted lugs directly below the foot metatarsals and 'claws' near the front of the shoe for incredible traction in any trail condition.
The hook-and-loop tap conveniently attaches running gaiters without straps below the outsole - preventing debris from building up beneath the shoe.
