The Altra Olympus 5 is a backpacking, hiking and trail shoe that was ahead of its time when it released.
The Olympus was designed with a very stack height before high stack heights became the industry standard. Suddenly, hikers and trail walkers found a shoe that didn't leave their feet aching at the end of the day.
The execution of a high-stack-height trail shoe that didn't compromise stability helped establish Altra as a trail shoe leader. And, with technological advancements in materials, the Olympus has required little adaptation and has simply gotten better.
Moreover, the Olympus also stood out for Altra's signature zero drop design and open toe box, which it retains to this day. Hikers and walkers with good form could strengthen their ankles with a fundamentally different type of shoe geometry and train themselves for tougher pursuits.
You'll find all the support and comfort you need on the trail with the Olympus.
