The first hiking boot to incorporate Altra’s well-loved wide FootShape toe box, the Tushar is made for rugged long distance thru-hiking. The Tushar is a traditional hiking boot with the appeal of components that made the Altra Lone Peak the single most popular shoe for thru-hiking but vamped with features that bear heavy packs and rough terrain in mind. From top to bottom the Tushar is tailored for durability with an upper of abrasion-resistant ballistic nylon and a seam-sealed waterproof eVent layer to counter any type of weather, a polyurethane InnerFlex midsole for flexibility and compression resistance and a beefy DuraTread rubber outsole. With Fit4Her technology, women-specific detailing is an inherent characteristic of the Tushar’s build. Made for an audience that popularized the Lone Peak but prefers the stability of a hiker, the Tushar is poised to be a staple for the John Muir Trail and PCT.
