Women's | Trail
Ultraventure was designed with features inspired by our elite trail and ultrarunners. An aggressive Vibram® XS Trek outsole provides traction, durability, and protection on technical trails, while the 3 piece, multi-density EVA midsole offers light stability through the gait cycle. A 30/25mm stack height (5mm drop) delivers a plush and protective ride. The fully gusseted tongue and an abrasion-resistant engineered mesh upper are optimized for breathability and strength, and feature drainage “gills” for water release and quick drying. Ultraventure also features our uniquely fitted gaiter attachment, making it fully compatible with our stretch nylon Topo gaiter (optional and sold separately).
Anatomical toe box allows toes to spread naturally and comfortably.
For a '2nd Skin' fit and feel.
Unparalleled grip and traction and durability from the leaders in technical outsoles.
Comfortable, anti-compression footbed with anti-microbial properties.

I was really iffy about this shoe when it first came out as I normally prefer a 0-3mm drop for trail shoes. Ultimately I wanted another shoe that I could use the Topo gaiters on.
Boy am I glad I gave this shoe a chance.
The lack of rock-plate keeps the shoe flexible and a little more "bouncy" on trail. The extra cushion helps you not need a rock-plate, anyway.
The shoe feels leaner through the arch which is great for downhill running, without losing that roomy toe box. The biggest win for me is the gusseted tongue. I had no idea that would matter so much to me; but it's a wonderful convenience.
The only thing I don't get is the change to a Vibram outsole. Topo Athletic's soles have always held up incredibly well, so this doesn't seem like a special improvement.
As an ambassador, I have every trail shoe Topo Athletic offers; and this shoe (especially when I wear the gaiters) has already gotten me stopped on trail and questioned more than all other trail shoes combined.
My first pair of trail shoes I purchased-I googled wide toe box for women. Very comfortable and had my first trail run 6 miles. Finally a shoe that fits my wide feet. I will buy again. They are everything you said they were. I am thinking of purchasing road shoes also.
