We were always warned as kids – don’t take sweets from a stranger, don’t jump off a cliff if someone tells you to, dont join a cult. But I think they would let you off the hook for the last one with the new cult legend from Altra. The Lone Peak 4.5 continues being the rule breaker in the family. It’s been trimmed down and shredded some baggage making it sleeker, lighter and more flexible. The A-Bound midsole made from a recycled, environmentally friendly compound, makes for resilient underfoot protection. So despite the tough exterior – this shoe is really a loyal steed, a softie at heart and it will likely steal yours too. This is a cult we are happy to join!
