I plan to buy this product again!
Olympus 2.0 Review:
This running shoe is super comfortable and great for doing errands and talking extended walks (like in the mall).
Excellent quality and very comfortable!
Olympus 2.0 Review:
I am currently having problems with one of my knees. These shoes help me to walk w/o excessive pain.
Bulky design
Olympus 1.5™ Review:
Unfortunately, these shoes were not for me. I have wide feet, but skinny ankles, so I am always looking for shoes that would make my feet look more narrow, still being comfortable. When these shoes arrived they looked wide and bulky. When I tried them on, I looked like a dwarf wearing huge boots(I am 5'4). The shoes have a lot of cushion, and they are comfortable. I am sure they will look just fine on a taller individual with fuller calves and ankles. I had to return them.
Comfortable for Officiating
Provision Walk™ Review:
I like the expanded toe box that gives my toes opportunities to breathe. Breathing toes make better calls.
love this shoe
Lone Peak 3.0 Review:
I have mortons neuroma so it is hard to find a shoe that I can walk in for fitness. I have the Lone Peak 2.5 which was my first pair of this brand. I have no pain in them. I got this pair next. I can walk distances in either pair without any ball of foot pain at all. I have been through many expensive shoes before this that did not work for my feet. I took this pair (the Lone Peak 3.0) on a trip out to Yellowstone/Grand Tetons/Jackson, where I did a lot of hiking. No pain.. And the tread was great on the gravelly trails. I wish they would make a high-top version for terrain that requires some ankle support.

About Altra

Nearly 20 years after opening a family-operated "dream" running store, Altra's founders still felt that there was a large gap in the athletic shoes marketplace for truly biomechanically correct footwear. And so the Altra brand was born from the belief that shoes shouldn't encourage a heel strike; they should let the body move naturally.

For years, the Altra team experimented with cutting down the heels of regular running shoes to test their proprietary Zero Drop™ theory and saw incredible results with staff and customers alike. It eliminated injuries and helped people get back into running. Working with engineers, designers, elite runners and biomechanical experts, Altra started making prototypes to bring this innovative footwear to the masses. Altra's unique, Zero Drop™, foot-shaped, gender-specific designs to help everyone run naturally.

Blending cushioned protection with the benefits of barefoot freedom, Altra footwear is designed to reduce injury and promote proper technique for the most natural run. Every shoe features Zero Drop™ technology and a foot-shaped, gender-specific design so everyone can find the right fit to run better and, most importantly, healthier.
