Michaelwrote a review of Altra Olympus 3.0 Trail Running Shoe - Men's on June 11, 2019
Familiarity: I've put it through the wringer
Fit: True to size
I have worn Altra shoes (multiple models, road and trail) since the company launched and they continue to progress their technology and design. The Olympus is Altra's maximally cushioned shoe and I find that I can roll right over virtually anything on the trail without anything poking into the sole of my foot and with good stability. I was concerned that the stack height might make them a bit wobbly, but they are quite stable. The Vibram Megagrip outsole is the the absolute greatest thing ever - think climbing shoe sticky rubber on a trail shoe. I can't stress enough how much of a game changer the grip is. My only complaints are that the laces are comically long and the toe cap seems to peel off pretty easily from stubbing toes on roots or rocks. This is not a significant enough issue that I would not purchase another pair, but I would expect better quality. I noted that the shoe fits true to size, and that is correct; however, if you have other Altra shoes do not assume they will be the same. I wear a different size Altra across three models (this is an issue the company struggles with across products).
