>Gears and Wears>Shoes for Sale (Altra Lone Peak, $50)
One of my buddies heard me raving about my Altra Instincts enough that he went out and bought a pair of their trail running shoes, the Lone Peak. Unfortunately, after 30 or so miles into them, he decided they weren't for him--and decided to stick with cycling more than running. He's more of a comfortable heel striker who doesn't want to change that, too. The Lone Peak is a zero-drop, so it's not for heel strikers.
He asked if I wanted them...and I would have gladly taken them off his hands if they would have fit me. I'm a 10.5 in Altras, and these are a 11.
Rather than eBay, I thought I'd post a "for sale" sign here on his behalf (seems like the right crowd, and someone could get a cheap pair of shoes out of it). They go for $110 on RunningWarehouse, I'm asking $50+shipping. I've attached a couple pictures to the post (dog legs appear in photos but not included--she just insists on laying by running shoes, thinking she'll make sure she gets to run that way) to show the condition they're in. I can (and have) speak to the build quality of Altras--my Instincts have 500+ miles on them and are cruising strong (they're in my equipment log). Altras fit a little small. The 11s are probably the right size for someone who normally wears a 10.5. They do, however, have a fantastically wide, roomy toe box. They're also zero-drop with a nice amount of cushioning.
PM me or post here if you're interested and we can work out the details + shipping costs. Thanks!

Wrong size damnit. I have tried these on, but have not run in them. I liked them quite a bit.
Tell me you still have these! Size 11? If so, I'm SO game.
