Nate’s Top 5 Trail Running Shoes of 2013

Altra Lone PeakNate just posted his top trail shoes of 2013 over on his blog Biker Nate. He helpfully included a list of all of the trail shoes that he ran in last year, and narrowed that down to his five favorites. To give you a bit of perspective, Nate is a high-mileage trail runner who specializes in races from 50-100 miles. He had several top-ten finishes last year, and prefers low-drop (usually 4mm or less), cushioned trail shoes.

Here’s the list of trail shoes that Nate put to the test last year:

Altra Lone Peak
Altra Lone Peak 1.5
