Very cushy comfortable shoes, like running on pillows. I recently ran a half-marathon in them, and I'm training for a full marathon and 50K this coming fall. I've been wearing them for both trail and on the street - they're good for both. They have a gaiter trap on the heel (for trail runs) but I don't think I would wear them on any really slippery terrain. The zero-drop is excellent for going downhills however. For me they have replaced my old Cumulus 13s which Asics no longer makes (their "upgraded" versions of the Cumulus have been horrible). These have that same cushy forefoot feel. The sizing of the women's Olympus is a bit off from other running shoes; I normally wear a 8.5 street shoe and 9 running shoe (Brooks and Asics) and had to go with a 9.5 in these. I have bunions and generally wide feet and these give my forefeet and toes plenty of width. I don't know if people with narrow feet would like them. These are also for "neutral" runners (those with medium-to-high arches who don't overpronate or supinate too much). I believe Altra's "Repetition" model is for people who need more stability.

I'd also recommend: Earth, Merrell

These shoes, for me, are the most comfortable running shoes I have ever owned and believe me, I have owned a lot of pairs. I run ultras and have trouble with my feet ranging from stress fractures to neuromas to broken joints. These cushiony shoes have given me the most comfort yet. I love the wide toe box and zero drop heel taking pressure off my forefoot. The only problem has been top of the foot pain from running in them for a long period of time.

I'd also recommend: Brook's adrenaline wide width, Asics Gel Nimbus 16 wide width

I absolutely LOVE these shoes. They are so comfortable and cushy. I started having knee pain 2 years ago and despite taking it easy and quitting running, my knees never felt quite right. With these, the pain and clicking is gone. As far as function, I'll compare them to shoes I've worn. They are cushier than Saucony Triumphs, and they have the wide toe box like Merrell's barefoot running shoes, which I need due to my wider toe spread and bunions. They are perfect! The only thing to be aware of is that they run REALLY small. I normally wear a size 8.5/9, but I had to go up to a size 10. I originally ordered a 9.5 based on similar reviews and found that they were still too small.

Wasn't sure about these, and still not sure I love the toe roll. They are super cushioned, which was a bit odd at first, but I wanted more cushion for the treadmill. I find that more and more these are the shoes I pick to wear for every day. Once I got used to them, they were extremely comfortable. Anxious to try the new Paradigm, which are similar cushioning without so much toe roll.

I'd also recommend: Vivobarefoot, Brooks Pure

I am trying the Olympus for the first time because I have bad metatarsalgia and neuromas on both feet and am looking for a shoe that won't aggravate them. I trail run ~25-30 miles/week. So far I really like them! My feet still have some issue, but I think these shoes are really helping! An as a added bonus my legs don't get as tired and I feel like I run better! They aren't the most attractive shoe and they definitely run 1/2 size small. I will buy them again!
