Altra Olympus 2.5 Women’s Trail Running Shoes The reinforced mesh upper of the Altra Olympus 2.5 controls moisture by keeping it to a minimum, while cool air is also encouraged to circulate. Dual layer EVA resides in the midsole for cushioning and responsiveness. Rounding off the shoe is the Vibram MegaGrip Outsole which offers optimal grip and traction for difficult, unpredictable terrain. Breathable Mesh Upper The primary function of the upper is to promote efficient moisture management properties by effectively wicking away the inevitable build-up of sweat and moisture, transporting it from your skin where it is evaporated to leave your feet feeling cool, dry and comfortable as you strive for the best results and performance. In addition, cool air is encouraged to circulate, creating a drier, healthier environment for your feet to thrive in. As well as keeping you free from sweat and moisture, the upper is abrasion-resistant, meaning the shoe becoming durable and stable for further protection and comfort. Furthermore, the upper eliminates friction and irritation such as chafing to deliver unrivalled comfort and protection. When facing difficult, unpredictable terrain, the Altra-exclusive GaiterTrap has been updated to a new 4-point system to keep an attached gaiter even more secure than before, thus preventing debris from entering the shoe. A FootShape toe-box enhances protection even further by keeping the toes safe from falling debris, sharp objects or rocks which you may encounter while trail running. Dual Layer EVA Midsole The dual layer EVA midsole offers improved cushioning and comfort compared to standard EVA. This helps deliver a plush, underfoot feel by containing energy-returning compounds directly under the feet to reduce ground impact and attenuate shock by reducing the impact placed upon your joints. Furthermore, this will help minimise the potential risk of injury or discomfort. The A-Bound is situated on the top layer for durability an
