Great Trail Runners!
High cushion and very comfortable. I love the Vibram sole and color ways.
Solid for hiking
-can't ask for more cushion -very generous toe box -very wide outsole platform -good for hiking
These are extremely comfortable, but for me, they are just too big of a shoe to run confidently in. The wide base is great at slower paces for hiking, but can be problematic when running. along with the wide base, if your feet are generally an average width, the fit may be too loosey-goosey when moving laterally.
Supportive, zero drop, wide toe-box, well-cushioned w/o being squishy, minimizes my mismatched arches when new.
Like ALL shoes, support fades with wear.
Good major update
Major upgrade from the 3.5. Those who know Altra understand the zero drop and wide toebox. That has not changed. Also, the Olympus is known for maximum cushion. That remains. The Vibram sole is much different in this iteration, with more side to side flexibility. The sole seems to be less stiff than either the Olympus 3 or 3.5, allowing for a more natural foot roll. The tongue is sufficiently long, slightly less padded and splits at the top, a nice touch. Perhaps the smallest change is really appreciated is the loop on the heel tab. That makes it easier to get on your foot. I’ve put about 100 miles on them to date. They’re holding up well and the cushioning has remained intact. My first Altra Olympus were the 2s. Loved those shoes, even if the tongue was a bit short. When subsequent iterations came out, Altra made improvements in some areas, but there also seemed to be a few negatives with all those previous newer models, making me miss my 2s. This is not the case anymore. The 4s are an improvement in all areas.
Was only available in one color when I purchased them from Enwild. Makes it harder to rotate through a couple of pairs. Please carry more colors!
