Trail runners, Yup! I’ve gone through a few! Over the past 3 years I’ve had an unhealthy addiction to Altra Footwear. I’ve gone through 5 pairs in 2 years… Youch! That hurts my wallet! The “Lone Peak” has become my go-to trail shoe. My first pair of Lone Peak’s was the Lone Peak 2.5 model….
When it comes to choosing footwear for any of my outdoor activities I’m particularly picky. This became a major issue when it came time to purchase a new pair of winter hiking boots. I tried several brands including Scarpa, Keen, Columbia, Salewa, and Asolo. None of the boots felt right. They would either be too bulky and stiff or too light weight with not enough insulation.After several weeks of hunting I finally ended up with a pair of Vasque Snowburban winter hiking boots. These boots are a nice compromise between a burly 3 season hiker and a winter mountaineering boot.
