Benefits

Step into the only trail shoe with a FootShape™ toe box and max-cushioned Zero Drop platform. Named after one of the most prominent peaks in the Wasatch Mountains, the Olympus is designed to help you conquer any terrain. The flexible, max-cushioned Zero Drop platform and FootShape™ toe box combine to place your foot in a natural position for an efficient, stable trail or road running experience. Two-layer A-Bound™ cushioning offers flexible protection from the gnarly terrain or open road, although we will recommend learning and focusing on proper, low-impact technique. And because a max cushioned shoe reduces the workload on the feet, foot strengthening should be done to keep the foundation of the body strong. Dominate the trail, pavement and everything in between with the all-new Olympus.

Technology

Places your heel and forefoot the same distance from the ground to promote low-impact technique, naturally align body posture and strengthen lower leg muscles weakened from running on elevated heels.

Allows the toes to relax and spread out naturally and the big toe to remain in a straight position for more stability and a powerful toe-off to maximize running performance.

This unique outsole and midsole componentry allows you to run the way you were born to by combining metatarsal mapping, a fully cushioned Zero Drop platform and FootShape™ toe box.

Made of recycled materials, this unique layer sits directly under the foot to reduce the impact of hard surfaces and return energy into each stride. It's literally a layer of bouncy ball between the road and your feet!
