Delivering maximum cushioning at a surprisingly light weight, the Altra Running Men’s Olympus 2.5 offers comfort for high mileage or anyone looking to lessen impact underfoot.
As with all Altra Running shoes, the shoe has a FootShape toe box that differs greatly from the aggressive taper of traditional running shoes. This design lets your big toe remain in a straight position while allowing your other toes to spread naturally. This broader cut reduces the risk of bunions, hammer toes, and plantar fasciitis. The shoe also utilizes a Zero Drop platform (height of the heel and the forefront are the same) that encourages a natural stride rather than elevating the heel or manipulating foot position. This is meant to promote better alignment and a more natural posture while on the move which in turn lessens impact.
The abrasion-resistant mesh upper strikes an excellent balance between breathability and durability. Strategic overlays help to bolster protection and durability in the heel and mid-foot. An integrated 4-point GaiterTrap allows for the easy attachment of Altra gaiters (sold separately). A dual-layer EVA midsole with a top layer of Abound cushioning delivers comfort and reduces fatigue.
Weighing roughly 1 pound, 7 ounces per pair, the shoe has a stack height of 36 mm. A durable rubber outsole with Vibram MegaGrip delivers excellent traction.
Sold in pairs, the Altra Running Men’s Olympus 2.5 trail running shoe is available in men’s full and half sizes.
