Benefits

Hit the rugged, winding trails or the open road with the first max-cushioned, Zero Drop™ crossover shoe designed specifically for the female foot. The Olympus™ utilizes its max-cushioned Zero Drop platform and FootShape™ toe box to place your foot in a natural position for more speed, stability and comfort. While the two-layer A-Bound™ cushioning protects your feet from the rugged trail and open road, we still 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. Run through nature as nature intended you to with the 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.

FootShape toe box

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!
