Like all Altras, this one features balanced cushioning, a gender-specific fit, and Footshape Fit with extra room for natural toe splay. As its name suggests, though, the Olympus 5 Hike is made for hiking with protective leather uppers, a waterproof and breathable GORE-TEX membrane for weather protection, max cushion to absorb shock on the trail, and Vibram MegaGrip outsoles for mad grip on all kinds of trail surfaces.

Love this product. Best fit ever.

I wear these every day. In the past I've had to size up because my feet are so wide, but the toe box on these are a game changer.

Strange Fit 2

I am raising my review to 5 stars. I liked the shoe well enough after breaking it in to buy another one, half a size larger, and that feels slightly too large. My knees appreciate the extra cushion.

Strange fit

I have 3 pairs of the Olympus 5 GTX high rise and love them. They fit perfectly. But the low rise is hard to get on and is too narrow, mainly at the bridge. Oddly though, they feel OK, tight at the bridge, loose on the rest of the foot, once I have walked a bit. I have worn them for 3 days all day, doing 10K steps per day on New York sidewalks and they feel OK once I get over the initial period

Short term comfort

Most comfortable shoes I've ever owned. But the price it too much for how long they last. I've had two pairs of these and they both squeak annoyingly loud. They both tear up very easy. They just fall apart in a couple months. But the waterproofing is great.

Great snow shoes

Awesome shoe. Have had multiple pairs of Olympus 4 and 5 w/o GORE-TEX. Took a bit to break it in compared to non GORE-TEX Olympus 5. Burly shoes. Good traction. Quite a few miles and looks and functions great. Great for winter hikes and walk daily to work. Fit is good but had to order 1/2 size larger.

Lack durability

Lugs separated from soles almost immediately, and repeatedly, on all my Olympus shoes. (4 pairs) Repaired with shoe glue, but then other lugs peeled off. Would be great if they lasted.

I love the non GTX Olympus 5, this shoe isn't the same

I have the non GTX and I love those. The waterproof aspect is fine but the fit is very tight. I have the same shoe in the same size except this one is waterproof and it feels like different sizes. The laces are too short and the ankle loop that was perfect on the non GTX is tiny and sucks now. Pulling on your shoes is much easier with a loop that fits two fingers and is an inch wide unlike this new one that only fits one finger and isn't as wide as a shoelace.

Great shoe .... But prefer it a half size larger than normal . Wear 11 in other Altra's and these had to be 11.5 , it's a bit narrow mid shoe but workable and get better with break in..
