You asked, and we delivered. Our popular, max-cushioned trail shoe returns with a completely re-vamped vibram outsole and a softer, more flexible upper. The new outsole dramatically enhances traction in uphill and downhill terrain while maintaining the max-cushioned feel you love. Traction and durability improvements have also led to a reduction in weight over its predecessor for a faster ride. An impressive 36Mm stack height runs evenly from front to back and features an a-bound bottom layer to add a spring to each step and ethylene vinyl acetate top layer to take the bite out of the rugged terrain. And like every Altra shoe, the footshape toe box keeps your feet happy, relaxed and stable through uphill climbs and downhill descents.

I rated 4 stars because the tread pattern seems more suited to trail running than the previous 1.5 version, but the poor sizing makes it a no go for me.
The cushioning felt really cushy...Hoka-ish cushy. The insoles were also thick and cups the heel well. Just walking around, I could feel the grippiness if the Vibram outsole. The lugs are widely spaced out which won't retain dirt and I think this would make for a good transition from road to trail.
The outsole is super grippy and cushioning is so comfortable, yet responsive. Haven't had any hotspots running in these yet.
Have ran 350kms in my Olympus, mainly on trails. The lugs have worn off quite a bit especially around the heels portion. Grip is still good but will probably have to retire them as trail shoes and use then for road and light trails by 500km. The responsiveness if the cushioning is still very good at this point.
My Olympus are now into 600+ km. Lugs wear is still acceptable and the Megagrip outsole still has good grip. One spot on the softer part of the Megagrip has punched through with the midsole material showing. probably damaged done by sharp rocks and not general wear and tear. The cushioning is still cushy and responsive. Not much upper wear an tear as well.
Otherwise I love this shoe. These are replacing Brooks Glycerin 13s for me as my everyday shoes. The Brooks were my first high cushion shoe, and they really helped with minor pain I had in my mid-sole and IT-band tightness around my knee when I would walk long distances. The Olympus is so much better in terms of comfort and cushion. I've been wearing them for a week now and they are the best shoe I have worn. Despite the size weirdness, I would highly recommend this shoe.
Bad: laces, they almost immediately started to fray in a few different places, but not severely so much as I have not replaced them. Stubborn me. Also, they are constantly slipping loose on the first 3-4 eyelets, and as they do, during a run, the slack moves to the lower eyelets and the top gets so tight I have to stop and adjust. Could you tell while reading this that I just decided to change out the laces on my shoes immediately? Thank you. I'll try update after a while.
5 stars still warranted, I love my toe room in the Altra's.
