Is it a bird? Is it a plane? Is it the Olympus 3.5? NO – Besides the name, the Olympus has had a major overhaul and is hardly recognisable from its predecessor. That thing flying by is actually you in your new max cushion, trail-crushing Altra Olympus 4.
Featuring a new engineered mesh upper and padded tongue for those long haul endurance runs where comfort is of utmost importance, these features provide a lock-in feel without being restrictive. The InnerFlex grooves have stayed put though, keeping the shoe supple and responsive despite its 33m of underfoot heaven. Added to it, is the MegaGrip Vibram outsole that overachieves on all terrain, wet or dry. Don’t jog, don’t even run, FLY in clouds in the new Olympus 4.
