Run small, feel stiff

I had the Altra Olympus 4 before this shoe, and those were excellent. Great fit, super supportive and soft at the same time. Something about this version is different though. It feels stiffer, like the impact from the ground hits harder, even when on trail terrain. My toes seem to hit the forefront on foot strike, which was not an issue with the 4. And the toe box feels a little tighter on the 5, as my bunion gets a bit irritated after a run. I did love the brown/red color combo though, they look great. I seem to be using them more for walking than running though.

I do not think I will buy this product again

The tongue design on this shoe is not designed thoughtfully. The plastic and the cloth met at the end, and there was no protection on the edge, and I got cut from the material on the front of my ankles. The fabric/material on the shoes is not quite unforgiving for those who have bunions on their feet. The thickness on the back for padding caused a lot of blisters on my feet (the back of my ankles), and it's quite narrow for feet that have bunions (it could be the material that makes the shoes feel tight in the width even though the shoes are "designed" as the wide toe box).

Love the room!

[This review was collected as part of a promotion.] I love the room in this shoe. I feel confident, protected from the ground and very stable in this shoe - love it for heading to the mountains and my dog walks. It fits like my Lone Peak in my toes, but has a nice secure foot feel with boosted height and cushion. And I love that it is cushion for protection, but not overly soft.

not sure I would buy this shoe again

I have worn Olympus for many years. Bought the light blue one this time and Altra changed the shoe. The heel is no longer supportive. For an unknown reason it is much shorter in height. My heel feels unsupported. Why change a good thing. It WAS the perfect shoe! Unbelievably I have been considering changing to HOKAs.

Runs small

I'm very disappointed the new Olympus 5 aren't working for me. I wore out my 4's and am in desperate need for new trail shoes. These just run so small. In normal shoes I wear a 10 and running trail shoes a 10.5. I've worn 10.5 in a variety of Altra's for year. Tried the 5's in a 10.5 and too short (width was fine). Went up to an 11 and still too small. Other than my toe hitting they felt great everywhere else. If they fit I know I would love them. I just wish they didn't fit small. 11.5 seem to be out of stock or not available. And I can't wait. I need new shoes for a trip coming up. Bummed I'm going to have to look elsewhere as I don't want to try another style blind.

Runs small

Ordered my typical size as Olympus 4 but this 5 model is much smaller. I reordered a 1/2 and a full size bigger and trying to determine which is better. The tongue is super stiff - which is ironically, the only place I get blisters- from that sharp tongue digging in my ankle. So far it does feel more cushioned than the 4 model.

Great support shoe

Daughter picked these out for Christmas. She's a Vet tech for a busy vet clinic and on her feet all day and says these are the most comfortable shoes she's ever had.

I would buy this shoe again and again!

Trail running and long distance backpacking, I buy a 1/2 size bigger because long miles and rocky trails require extra room.

I have bought this product again and again.

I wear them every day. I wear a different pair each day. I buy the same size but there is always one pair that feels shorter than the others. This last time I bought 3 pair then a few weeks later I bought 3 more pair.
