    Comments about Mens Altra Olympus 2.0 Trail Running Shoe:

    I bought these for a series of races I was running in south Florida. The terrain was hard packed dirt, crushed shell, some rocks and roots. With this terrain the shoe worked excellent for me. I ran three 50K's and a 100 miler in them and so far they have shown little wear. They gave me excellent traction and great cushion for the hard surface. I also wore them in a race with a sand based trail. They did not perform as well on that surface. I will buy them again.

    Order 1/2 size larger than your regular shoe size. Large toe box helps prevent bunion formation. Great cushioning on rocky trail.

    Made me an Altra Olympus fan for life

    Comments about Mens Altra Olympus 2.0 Trail Running Shoe:

    My third pair in a row. This pair may have just made me an Olympus fan for life. Cushioned -- but flat -- is what I have been seeking for years. Most cushion shoes have too much heel. This shoe is perfect!

    Comments about Mens Altra Olympus 2.0 Trail Running Shoe:

    I was looking forward to the promise of a lighter Olympus with better traction. I have a pair of Olympus 1.5 and I find they fit my feet well--the forefoot is roomy, which is the main reason I've gone with Altra. I also have Torins, and I like them quite a bit and they suit my foot shape well. With the updated Olymous 2.0 they've definitely made them lighter and also have much better traction. However, they've made them narrower and thus my little toes get squished. I don't get it! The whole selling point of Altra is to have a wide toe box, so why narrow it down over the previous model?? I'll have to return these and keep running in the Torin 2.0, a shoe I like but I'm not comfortable trying over 100 miles. I've worn the Olympus 1.5 in an 80 mile run and they worked out fine, but the weight and general clunkiness of them got to me. Altra generally is trick for fit, as they are inconsistent from model to model and from update to update. I would love it if they fixed that, and also didn't alter their shoes so drastically from one year to the next.

    Roadrunner service is always good!

    I am STOKED I decided to try them!

    Comments about Mens Altra Olympus 2.0 Trail Running Shoe:

    I decided to try these after trail running in Hokas for almost 2 years. I love the zero drop dole and the wide foot shaped toe box. They have great cushioning (I am 220) on gravel trails. The midsole is not as thick as my Hokas which makes them more predictable when running on uneven and Ricky terrain.

    Great Update Bad Sizing

    By Lenny Archuleta

    from Denver Colorado

    Comments about Mens Altra Olympus 2.0 Trail Running Shoe:

    this is is a great update to the 1.5 ... they have made the tongue longer so you can actually tie them down better ... also they are a lot softer compared to the 1.5 but yet the same or a smudge firmer from the first version ..the Vibram grip is very soft yet sticky .. I only ran on concrete so don't know the effects on the trails .. you can also feel how much lighter they are with softer uppers .. I am docking one star cause I ordered in a 12 but they are almost to small .. im cutting it real close .. and my foot is not standard I have a mortons toe meaning my middle toe is my biggest toe .. FYI my foot is 11 inches long and I usually wear 11 to 11.5 in shoes .. not 12.5 haha o well
