Tell a Friend about this Item
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.

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.
Wrapping the midfoot, this innovative design offers a snug fit for necessary control. Customers will experience a
natural, roomy toe environment and a better, more comfortable run.
Found in select Altra shoes, this comfortable, advanced stitching allows the foot to rest against a smooth surface with
Sandwiched near the foot, between the A-Bound™ and the midsole, the StoneGuard™offers flexible protection.
This multi-sectional layer deflects rocks into the midsole for a smoother, more stable ride.
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.
Following the volume heights of the foot, this lacing system improves the fit and natural flex zones in the shoe for a
better fit and fewer pressure points.
Fitting snuggly around the calcaneus, this unique design offers a more comfortable fit without the traditional, stiff
heel counter found in other performance shoes.
Stay in control on any steep descent with this throwback feature. It's a graceful nod to the very first trail running
Insoles and Outsoles

This outsole positions the strongest canted lug traction directly beneath the met heads with follow up 'claws'

sticky rubber makes the TrailClaw™ Outsole a beast in any trail condition.
For maximum flex and responsiveness, this outsole maps the bones and tendons of the human foot. With canted lugs
mapping your foot, this unique outsole provides a natural, all-purpose traction system for a variety of surfaces from
