In Salida, Colorado we have a wide variety of terrain to tackle during all seasons. We typically sell the Lone Peak to hikers looking for a terrific all season light hiker with a roomy toe box. During the summer we sell many to hikers attempting the Continental Divide and Colorado Trails. While the Lone Peak does have a wide toe box we would consider it a moderate cushioned shoe. Those looking for a hiking or trail running shoe with high or maximal cushion and a roomy toe box might consider the Altra Timp and Olympus styles. While moderate in cushion the addition of the StoneGuard™ provides excellent protection for your metatarsal pads. If your looking for a trail runner and or light hiker that can tackle a wide variety of terrain while giving your feet space to breathe this is the shoe for you.
