The most cushioned road running shoe from Altra yet

Introducing the Via Olympus

It was a fall day in Rock Creek Park as we laced up our fresh VIA Olympus from Altra. We immediately took to Beach Drive for our first run in the latest edition to the Altra family.

The Altra Olympus line of trail shoes already has a faithful following and we had been looking forward to seeing Altra expand on that line for those of us who spend more time on the pavement than the trails. Introducing the most cushioned road shoe from Altra yet!

The VIA Olympus combines the comfort of maximum cushion with Altra’s signature wide toe box and zero drop geometry to promote foot health and a natural foot strike (which sounds like a win, win).

The VIA Olympus uses Altra’s Ego Max foam to deliver a nice balance between cushion, responsiveness, and durability and has a rocker shape to help your feet roll from one stride to the next. The result is an authentic Altra experience with cushion to protect your feet and keep you going.

We're fans of this new model and looking forward to logging plenty of miles in the VIA Olympus.
