I LOVE LOVE these shoes! Like every other Topo shoe, these are extremely comfortable for any activity and perfectly cushioned. They are lightweight but very durable, and I appreciate the combination of a sporty but casual look. Definitely a unique and awesome shoe!
I purchased the Cor to wear as a casual shoe; however I found myself wearing it for gym workouts, too. I have worn this shoe to work everyday this week and have received many compliments. I was worried about the Velcro staying secure during my gym workouts, but box jumps prove it to be secure! This shoe is comfortable, it's stylish, and goes from office, to gym, to office easily!

I am loving this shoe! I have been wearing this shoe around for the past week and it has quickly become my go to shoe. What I love about this shoe is the cushion and flexibility allow for long walks with no discomfort, and I have found it to be a "breathable" shoe so my feet don't get hot. I have been wearing this shoe a lot with ankle length jeans and no socks. Lots of shoes of this style can be hard to wear sockless because you feel the seams but I have not found this to be an issue with the COR. The velcro so far falls back neatly into place. I typically wear a size 8 in dress shoes and a size 9 in running shoes. Since I was using this shoe for more of walking around the city as a casual shoe I went with an 8.5 and I am happy with the fit.

Ready for happy feet? Then try these shoes on, NOW!
Before I start, I want to preface to say I am a Topo Ambassador, but my thoughts on these shoes are will be 100% honest, regardless of my ambassadorship. There is a reason I am an ambassador for Topo though; I LOVE THEIR SHOES!!
And these are no exception. I ordered my regular size (these fit similar to the ST2 for reference) and they are like BUTTER on your feet; so comfortable, so soft, so awesome. I use mine for gym training and running errands around town. They fit like a slipper in the best possible way. The velcro assures a secure fit, and the roomy toe box and zero drop allow for toe splay and natural movement. These are also extremely comfortable after a run when you want to slip on a comfortable shoe. I am in love!

Topo Ambassador here. I finally got around to replacing my old (OLD) gym shoes, the OG MT-2's with the COR's. Transition was flawless. I've been doing my lifting and my lounging in this shoe for the past few weeks and couldn't be happier. They fit a bit more snug around the forefoot than Topo running shoes, which his perfect for the gym and kicking around. Not tying laces is awesome, and they feel light and stable when I'm lifting or doing a boot camp class. Topo, you nailed it with this one!
I am a Topo ambassador and love the COR shoes! I took them to Austin and ran 10 hilly miles! They were so comfortable with the wide toe and the light weight of the shoe! The zero drop is also a bonus for me! When they came in the mail and I took them out of the box my husband said, "I want a pair of those!" I immediately ordered them and he wears them to the gym everyday! I also wore them to work and I now have several women wearing them!!!! I would love to see them in another color other than black or grey!

I have a more thorough review on my blog, but felt I needed to give them a true 5 star rating so I wanted to review here as well! I'm a Topo ambassador so I have owned nearly every cross trainer Topo has ever offered.
As fitness instructor, Velcro saves time and worry over laces.
The upper is a flexible, cushy material that I never want to take the shoe off. It breathes and moves with my foot so comfortably. COR has replaced my other Topo trainers now as my go-to for RIPPED, Bodypump, Bodystep, HIIT class, CXWORX, and grocery shopping. They wear well with or without socks. I do both and have never had a blister.
I normally wear a half size bigger in my running shoes for extra room, and I did that with these as well; but I think my next order will be my true size to avoid any extra slippage. The strap around the top can be tightened, but my heel still slips a little in my left. I believe this would be fixed with my ACTUAL sizing, though.
love. this. shoe.
