Women's Altra Via Olympus

 in style LIGHT GRAY


Did the sidewalk just get softer?

The women's Altra Via Olympus combines the signature Altra fit with maximum cushioning for an all-new sensation while cruising on pavement.

Designers stuffed the Via Olympus full of its EGO Max midsole for a plush ride on asphalt, concrete and any other hard surface you come across. But even with the tall stack of foam, the Via Olympus stays true to Altra’s other running shoes: It still sits on a 0 mm heel to toe drop for a natural stance and ride.

Altra’s FootShape toe box gives your foot just the right amount of space, and the mesh upper lets your feet breathe when the miles start piling up.

With the softest ride in the Altra lineup, the women's Via Olympus gives you a plush, comfortable ride for all the miles ahead.

What’s New

The Altra Via Olympus is a brand new road model that wraps some of Altra’s signature technologies in with a max-cushion midsole for the softest ride.

Who It’s Best For

The Via Olympus can work well for a wide variety of runners. But there are two unique attributes to be aware of: It has Altra’s unique FootShape toe box that looks a little more squared off to help accommodate the actual shape of your foot, and it sits on a 0 mm heel-to-toe drop, which can take some getting used to.

Why You’ll Love It

The big bed of EGO Max foam makes it comfortable for lots of miles, but it’s light enough that you won’t notice any unnecessary weight on your feet. If you’re not running, it’s a great shoe for walking the dog or standing all day at work.

Size up

Runner85 6 months ago Verified Purchase

I wanted to love these. But they’re not quite right for me. The upper is stiff like the Altra Paradigm 5. I wanted the thick sole but it’s also stiff. And they run really small smaller than most Altras. I’m a size 7 and always wear an 8.5 to run. Ran a half and toes didn’t feel good. Will go back to the latest Altra Paradigm.
