Altra Olympus Women's Shoes Gunmetal/Lime/Blue Customer feedback

Comments: I LOOOOOOVE these shoes! They are exactly what I have been waiting for. Zero drop with tons of cushion but not those ridiculous trendy Hoka's that I think feel completely weird. I'm a ChiRunning instructor and absolutely love the feel of the contact with the ground when I run, but I was getting sore in my ankles and achilles from the lack of cushioning in most other zero drop shoes. Yes, obviously, you don't get the same grounded feeling as with the thinner soled shoes, but you do get that fabulous Altra last with the deliciously wide toe box so that your feet can relax and spread out naturally, just as they would if you were barefoot. This is reducing the tension in my feet and ankles and the soreness is finally going away. My feet are getting noticeably stronger as a result. The shoe is still light and pleasantly springy and even though I have very narrow feet and these shoes are very roomy, I like to wear my shoes really lose anyway to encourage my feet to relax and be soft, so the wide Altra last is a huge plus for me. Thank you Altra for creating this wonderful shoe and saving me from having to try those Hokas :). Im ordering a second pair now!
