Women's Altra Olympus 5 Low GTX

 in style GRAY / BLACK


Go for an adventure in any weather in the plush Altra Olympus 5 Low GTX.

Altra’s premium EGO™ MAX midsole foam gives you light and luxurious performance with a little extra bounce and durability.

The Olympus is built with Altra’s Original FootShape™ Fit, which is the most voluminous of Altra’s shoes. It also has their signature wide toe box so your toes can splay naturally. Like all Altra shoes, the Olympus has a Balanced Cushioned™ platform that positions your heel and forefoot at equal distances from the ground (also called a 0 mm heel-to-toe drop), which encourages better alignment and form.

Altra redesigned the outsole to make it even easier to run on uneven ground. The Olympus 5 has the grip and traction to take on any terrain thanks to its Vibram® Megagrip™, which is a durable and sticky high-performance rubber that works great on both wet and dry surfaces.

A GORE-TEX® upper will keep your feet dry as you hike through puddles or rainstorms, and Altra refined the sidewalls to increase stability while you are on uncertain footing. The premium collar has been redesigned for added comfort and keeps your heel secure.

Go ahead and splash in the puddle and hike in the rain with the Altra Olympus 5 Low GTX.

What’s New

The Altra Olympus 5 Low GTX differs from the Altra Olympus 5 because it has a GORE-TEX® upper to keep your feet warm and dry no matter the weather conditions.

The Olympus 5 has some minor updates that make them more stable and comfortable on the trails. A new outsole configuration and refined sidewall design increase the stability of the shoe on uneven terrain. A redesigned heel collar is softer and tailored to make sure that there is no heel slippage. A new heel loop allows you to hang them up to dry if they get wet on the trails. Plus, the new upper has extra give to accommodate a variety of foot shapes.

Who It’s Best For

The Altra Olympus 5 Low GTX is a shoe for people who love extra cushioning on the trails and want to go out in any condition. It is one of the best shoes for hiking in the snow or rain.

Why You’ll Love It

You will love the cushion and comfort that the Altra Olympus 5 Low GTX gives you on the trail. Its grip and traction work well on wet or dry surfaces, so you can hike or run on any trail all day long—and still come home with dry feet.
