Comments: I feel the same as Dan about the shoe and the Lone Peak (which I wear for hiking). Altra essentially took the Instinct and modified it for trail use---perfect! It's light but still gives more support and protection from roots and rocks than the super minimalist shoes do. Like most of the Altras and other zero drop/minimalist shoes, I order a half size larger than my regular size. They absolutely nailed it with this shoe.
