Delivering maximum cushioning at a surprisingly light weight, the Altra Running Men’s Olympus 2.0 offers comfort for high mileage or anyone looking to lessen impact underfoot.
As with all Altra Running shoes, the Men’s Olympus 2.0 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 Trail Mesh upper strikes an excellent balance between breathability and durability. An integrated 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 11 ounces per shoe, the Men’s Olympus 2.0 has a stack height of 36 mm. A sticky rubber outsole delivers excellent traction.
Sold in pairs, the Altra Running Men’s Olympus 2.0 trail running shoe is available in men’s full and half sizes.

Real Customer Reviews
- Great shoe! Wish I could get a good fit.
Likes: Shoe is very well built and the vibram soles are awesome!
Dislikes: It feels like the middle of the foot is much more Narrow than the older versions. I can't get a good fit out of them anymore. Very disappointed. Backcountry Edge folks were great. Return was easy with no problems.
