Max cush and a natural stride.

The summit of Utah's Mount Olympus is gained via a brutally steep trail that climbs over 4,000 feet in under four miles, so running it will really put the Altra Men's Olympus 2.0 Running Shoe through its paces. You can be confident it'll crush it, though, because its Zero Drop platform places your heel and forefoot at the same height for a natural stride, while the dual-layer EVA foam midsole and energetic A-Bound foam reduce impact and increase return energy at each step-off. Altra also added a comfy Contour footbed for even more cushioning, because 4,000 feet of rock hopping can take a toll on your arches.

The Olympus 2.0 also features Altra's TrailClaw sole, which utilizes a trail-specific Vibram rubber that is mapped to support the bones and tendons in your foot. A FootShape toe box also lets your toes spread out naturally to ensure stability on rugged terrain. On top of all that, Altra equipped the Olympus 1.0 with a quick-drying and durable Trail Mesh upper to ventilate and keep your foot cool, and a Gaiter Trap to accommodate gaiters without having to wrap them around the sole of your shoes.

  • Quick-drying Trail Mesh upper
  • Zero drop
  • FootShape toe box
  • A-Bound energy-returning midsole
  • InnerFlex sole grooves
  • 5mm Contour footbed
  • TrailClaw Vibram rubber outsole

Happy Hubby

Purchased these for my husband who has been finally get trail running shoes that support his knees and back and that also are wide enough for his foot! He

Altra cool

I have to say I gave these as a gift, the person seen me wearing my Altra's at a family function. And I had to pick up a pair for a gift.
The lone peak shoe runs true to size but the Olympus I had to get a half size bigger to fit perfectly.

Altra Awesome

  • Familiarity: I gave it as a gift but have feedback to share

Gave these as a gift. I have many of these brand shoes myself. I can't say enough about them. They are comfortable as it gets and functional everwhere

Makes running ultras more fun than pain

I had only a couple of trail days on these before I went on a weekend long Ultra run with a couple of buddies. I was a bit hesitant because normal shoes need a longer time to break in. Very surprised at how light they were, even at 20 miles in. Feet were no so sore after the run either. The cushion is the way to go, especially for longer runs. It will save your knees. Went a half size up from my normal street size.

Clouds on my feet!

After a long battle with Plantar I took some time away from the trails and road. Upon my return I decided to go to my first max cushion shoe. Was debating between the Hoka and Altra and the wide, natural toe box was the clincher for me to go with the Olympus.

Easily a solid 400 miles plus on this shoe and they are still as soft as the first day I ran in them. Support is rocking strong and besides a bit of minimal tearing of the interior of the shoe I am sure I good log some more mileage in them if I wanted, but why not go with the latest and greatest.

One major question I get from a lot of people is am I affraid I am going to role my ankle with the higher stack height. No! Haven't done it once in the past few months on these shoes. They are super stable and hands down my favorite shoe. No need to look further from Altra!

Clouds on my feet!

Soo much cushion

  • Familiarity: I've used it several times
  • Fit: True to size

I bought these for the longer trail runs I was looking to do, to save my knees and hips a little. These definitely do just that and they do it so well. I've used them several times, so far my longest run in these was 18 miles and my feet felt better than I could've imagined.

They grip very well to any mixture of terrain. Only complaint is that you can occasionally tell that your foot is slightly higher above the ground than in some other shoes, just a little top heavy.. But it doesn't seem to be a problem, no injured ankles yet!

I normally wear a size 11.5 in running shoes (Salomon, La Sportiva and Altra) and that was the right size in these as well.

Wicked Comfy

  • Fit: True to size
  • Size Bought: 10.5

They look like shape ups. Don't wear them to look cool. They are super comfortable and they have a lot of impact protection for trail running. Classic Altra Zero Drop is great to run in. Also, they have durable (and thick) vibram soles. Definitely not a minimalist shoe, and definitely not a stylish shoe. Nonetheless, I highly recommend for long distance trail runs.

i like the 1.5's better. the 2.0's are way too soft. fit is good but the ride of the 1.5's is better

Great Shoe

It took a few months to get used to the zero-drop of Altras (I started with some Lone Peaks before getting my Olympus), but now that I’ve adjusted to them, I really love them. The wide toe-box and comfortable upper make these my go-to trail shoes. I previously ran in Hokas and before that ran in Solomon, but both of those are too narrow in the toe-box for me. I started out just wearing the Lone Peaks around casually and changing all of my casual shoes to zero drop. Even then the first few times I tried to run in them, I’d strain my calf. So I put in some heel inserts and then gradually used thinner heel inserts. I read the sizing comments and went a half size bigger on my Olympus than my Lone Peaks, but I’m not sure if I really needed it. I agree with the other comments about there being a little slipping in the heel – especially when going up really steep stuff. I’d also say that Altra has the slipperiest laces I’ve used. Both my pairs are always coming untied. I’m giving the Olympus a 4 because of these 3 issues (adjustment period, heel slippage, laces), but those issues are pretty minor. If I could give them a 4.5 I could. I just can't give them a 5. Running in them is fantastic – they’re comfortable, stable, and have great traction. I am very happy with them and they will be the next pair I purchase.

Great Hiker too

This is my second pair of Altra and I use to Hike. Compared to the older Lone Peaks, these are Much better.

I loved the fit and comfort of the Lone Peak, but not much traction or life to the Thread. I have a narrow foot and I had lots of extra room in the Lone Peak, but didn't slop around. I got the same size in the Olympus and it seems to fit snugger up to the ball of foot.

The soles of these are Very interesting, 3 densities, with the center part being VERY soft and cushy. it will be interesting to see how well the last. So far no signs of wear at all.

And did I mention Cushy. My Old legs, hips and knees are loving these.

HIGHLY recommend

Great Hiker too

I have about 10 hikes on these now. The past couple years I have been experiencing foot pain on many hikes. I haven't on a single hike yet with the Olympus. Very Happy !

I decided to try these shoes to see if they would help with some plantar foot pain that I have been having since doing some long training runs. I felt I needed something more supportive and cushioned, but I still want a natural running style that the zero drop Altra promotes. I have done a couple of runs in them (mostly trail running) and I have not had as much pain, although my feet and body feel a bit heavier as I run in them. I am used to more minimal shoes, and it's weird not feeling the ground as much. I wish the shoe locked down on my heel a little more tightly. I have not had any ankle roll incidents or blisters so far. I think these shoes might get me through some long tough training runs.

Olympus 2.0

I had been running in the lone peak 2.0 and wanted to trying altra with a bit more cushion. This provides a smooth ride on longer runs and differing terrain. Love this shoe. May want to jump up a half size from your normal fit. ( at least for me it felt better).

Altra why!!!

    Altra why are you so GOOD? I am in love with Olympus!! These shoes are perfect!! I usually wear a 12.5 in altras but I do have some slipping in the heel, so I snagged these in a 12. Perfect fit!!! I am loving the supportive yet cushion that the Olympus' provide, it's amazing! The vibram rubber they use is sticky

    They just keep getting better.

    The previous Olympus were great ultra shoes, but when things got technical I'd usually opt for my Lone Peaks instead. With the updated version they've taken every positive feature of the old shoes and then added so much more. Lighter weight, my heel feels more locked down, and they have actual trail-running tread now !! Really a fan of these shoes, I won't mind buying a couple more pairs of them in the future.

    I bought these for my husband as an alternative to his Hoka's, he fell in love with them instantly. After his first run on hard packed snow without the need of a traction devise because of the Vibram sole only confirmed that he had found his new go to pair of shoes.

    Rugged, Cushioned and Light.

    People please pay attention!

    These are wicked sweet trail runners! Being a bigger guy I need a lot of cushioning when it comes to putting in longer distances, these offer plenty of that. My first pair of Olympus Altra trail runners have lasted me more than six months, I put 10+ miles a day on concrete floors. I need serious cushion or I would be in world of hurt! The zero drop, foot pod and cushion combo make equal a dream for your feet. Something unique about this shoe is when the sole starts breaking down they don’t give you pressure points in your feet like other shoes do. The 2.0 is a serious upgrade from the original Olympus. Vibram sole for extra grip and durability on the trail, reinforced the toe and the material on the outside vents well without sacrificing flexibility. You will thank yourself after purchasing these shoes. Here is a picture of the reinforced two box.
