Altra has unveiled the Via Olympus 2, the latest addition to its road running collection.
Designed for the modern runner seeking a harmonious blend of plush cushioning and exceptional performance, the Via Olympus 2 promises an unparalleled easy road-running experience in the iconic Altra FootShapeTM fit.
The standout feature of the Via Olympus 2 is the updated midsole compound, meticulously engineered to offer a remarkably softer underfoot feel, from the Altra EGO MAX™ midsole foam. This innovative midsole design provides a maximum cushioned experience with a 33mm stack height, ensuring a comfortable feel without compromising on high-performance, so you can go harder.
Altra has integrated a plush Ortholite X55 footbed, elevating the step-in feel to new heights of comfort. The Ortholite X55 footbed is designed to enhance the overall sensation of cushioning, at the heel of the trainer. It is complemented with a refined molded heel collar which provides an even more secure fit that comfortably wraps your foot.
Further technology is embodied in the Rocker Shape Geometry, which encourages propulsion and a more efficient toe-off. The Rocker Shape Geometry resembles the natural contour of your foot, allowing for a smoother and more dynamic transition from heel strike to toe-off.
