Altra mixes maximum cush with a Zero Drop platform into the Women's Olympus 1. 5 Trail Running Shoe. The Zero Drop platform places your heel and forefoot at the same distance for a natural stride, while the dual layer EVA midsole adds an extra A Bound layer that reduces impact and increase return energy at each step off. Altra also added a comfy Contour footbed for even more cushioning. The Olympus 1. 5 also features Altra's Footpod sole, which utilizes trail specific sticky rubber that is anatomically designed for natural comfort for the bones and tendons in your foot. A Footshape toe box also lets your toes spread out naturally to ensure stability on rugged terrain. On top, Altra equipped the Olympus 1. 5 with a quick drying, durable, trail specific mesh to ventilate and keep your foot cool. Gaiter Trap accommodates gaiters without wrapping them around the shoe's sole.
