Hiking Shoes or Altra Lone Peaks?

I spent 100 miles testing the popular Oboz Sawtooth hiking shoes, and while they were good, they didn't even compare to the comfort that my Altra Lone Peak 6 trail runners provided. In this video, I'll briefly cover the differences between a hiking shoe and the Altra Lone Peak so that if you are trying to make a decision, you'll have some insight from actual experience.

  • Advantages of a Hiking Shoe

Hi, I'm Cris Hazzard, aka Hiking Guy, a professional outdoors guide, hiking expert, and author based in Southern California. I created this website to share all the great hikes I do with everyone else out there. This site is different because it gives detailed directions that even the beginning hiker can follow. I also share what hiking gear works and doesn't so you don't waste money. I don't do sponsored or promoted content; I share only the gear recommendations, hikes, and tips that I would with my family and friends. If you like the website and YouTube channel, please support these free guides (I couldn't do it without folks like you!).
