Men's ALTRA® OLYMPUS 1.5 :: Conquer any terrain with the Men's Altra® Olympus 1.5. Dominate the trails in Altra®'s popular max-cushioned trail shoe that's been upgraded with a fresh new look and a more durable upper mesh. Ideal for trail and road running, as well as ultra-marathons and fast-packing, the Olympus is specifically designed to reduce foot pain, bruising and fatigue while enhancing your safest, most natural strides.

Purchase your regular running shoe size for a snug fit, or a 1/2 size larger for a relaxed fit.

Comments about Mens Altra Olympus 1.5 Trail Running Shoe:

After being sorely disappointed by Hokas, I tried the Altra Olympus and was blown away at the difference a foot shaped design could make. I've been a fan of the Altra Lone Peak for years, but wanted something with maximum cushion for loooong runs on pavement and fire roads...and the Olympus delivered! Having space in the toe box for my digits to splay naturally is something you have to experience to believe, and while the zero drop aspect might take getting used to for some folks, I find it liberating!

The only con I can think of is the tread. I REALLY like these, but a few more millimeters of tread would make these my "go-to" shoes for more aggressive and sloppy terrain.

      These are far and away the most confortable shoes I've ever ran in. The wide toe box is spectacular, and the zero drop helps promote a nice, natural running form. I used to have all sorts of blister and foot problems before, but not anymore!

          Comments about Mens Altra Olympus 1.5 Trail Running Shoe:

          I use the Altra Olympus 1.5 as my daily trainer as I'm building up for a 100 miler in June. I love the feel of the shoes as I transition through my stride. They offer plenty of protection for big weekly miles and day-long runs. The tread is great for trail running and the sticky rubber works really well on the wet and slimy rocks I encounter daily in the pacific northwest. The foot shaped toe box keeps my feet comfy and happy on all-day runs. This shoe is a winner.
