Step into the only trail shoe with a foot-shaped toe box and max-cushioned Zero Drop platform. Named after one of the most prominent peaks in the Wasatch Mountains, the Olympus is designed to help you conquer any terrain. The flexible, max-cushioned Zero Drop platform and foot-shaped toe box combine to place your foot in a natural position for an efficient, stable trail or road running experience. Two-layer A-Bound™ cushioning offers flexible protection from the gnarly terrain or open road, although we will 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. Dominate the trail, pavement and everything in between with the all-new Olympus.

- 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.
- 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.
