Our View - Altra Olympus 3 Women’s:
If you are looking for an exceptionally cushioned, supportive trail running shoe then the updated Altra Olympus is a great choice. It has always been popular with our customers and the version 3 has seen a few significant changes to make this great shoe even better.
The impressively cushioned A-Bound midsole with a stack height of 33mm is made from recycled materials to absorb impact, increase protection and improve responsiveness. In the midsole there are also grooves that flex in the same manner as your foot which allow excellent performance as well as reducing weight.
Upper wise the materials are a highly breathable mesh with printed overlay increasing durability. There is the new 4-point GaiterTrap attachment to maximise protection from trail debris.
On to the grip and the Vibram MegaGrip remains but has been widened in the rearfoot to provide a more stable platform and the groove that extends down the full length of the shoe has also been widened to better shed mud.
