Hit the rugged, winding trails or the open road with the first max-cushioned, Zero Drop™ crossover shoe designed specifically for the female foot. The Olympus™ utilizes its max-cushioned Zero Drop platform and foot-shaped toe box to place your foot in a natural position for more speed, stability and comfort. While the two-layer A-Bound™ cushioning protects your feet from the rugged trail and open road, we still recommend learning and focusing on proper, low-impact technique. And because a max cushioned shoe reduces the workload on the feet, foot strengthening should be done to keep the foundation of the body strong. Run through nature as nature intended you to with the new Olympus.
- A-Bound™: Environmentally friendly, this energy-return compound is made of recycled materials. Offering extra protection, this unique layer sits directly under the foot to return energy back into each stride. It reduces the impact of hard surfaces while still maintaining ground feedback. Traditional running shoe foam compresses 70-90% while A-Bound™ compresses 2-3x less so it won't deform over time.
- Foot-Shaped Toe Box: Setting Altra apart from other performance training shoes, a foot-shaped design ensures healthy, happy feet. The distinctive toe box follows the shape of a healthy foot for more comfort, balance and running efficiency.
- NRS – Natural Ride System™: This unique combination of outsole and midsole componentry with proper metatarsal parabola, Zero Drop™ platform and foot-shaped lasts allows people to run as nature intended.
