Product Overview

Built to take on your long runs, daily training, and recovery runs, Phantom 2 delivers the comfort of its predecessor, now with even more cushioning and response. These cushioned road runners for men feature an overlay-free engineered mesh upper made of 30% recycled materials to keep the foot cool and comfortable, with reinforced security through the midfoot. With a 3 mm higher stack height, the updated midsole features a ZipFoam™ core for a snappy, yet soft feel underfoot. The external TPU heel counter integrates with the midsole to keep the foot seated over the platform for a secure and stable ride.

Roomy toe box, good cushioning, snug mid foot & heel fit.

I am 73 and do over 20 miles per week speed walking. Due to "old knees" and past plantar fasciitis issues, shoe fit and design is critical to me. I had been wearing various Altra shoes for a number of years, but have abandoned the brand due to constant changes that compromised fit and reduced qual...

Most Liked Negative Review

So many good qualities, but missing a few keys.

I use these Phantoms to knock out miles on the road. The color scheme (Ocean/Lime) is beautiful, toe-box is wonderfully spacious, and the midsole is plush. The two things that might prevent me from getting this shoe again are: (1) The stitching down the outside of the shoe doesn't stretch or shift...

Overall great shoe

Switching to Topo the very first thing I noticed was my lower back felt much better after my runs. I rotate my shoes and never run on them worn out. The overall comfort of the shoe is great , I am averaging right around 40 miles a week and I feel substantially better after my runs. I am looking forward to adding additional Topos to my collection.

Bottom Line Yes, I would recommend to a friend

Comments about Phantom 2

Running in my Topos has been an absolute delight. The 5mm drop from toe to heel really springs my stride forward. The extra space in the toe box gives my feet lots of space to land naturally. I would highly recommend this shoe to anyone who runs or walks on a daily either on the trail or concrete.

Comments about Phantom 2

I have 3 pair: The gray and salmon, Black and white, Ocean and lime. I get plenty of comments and questions, and respond with what they are, now much I like them, what they cost, etc. Maybe you should pay me to be a spokesperson. I usually wear Injinji toe socks with all of my athletic footwear, swear by them as well, have about 24 pair, mostly the black no shows, but have a handful of styles. The Topo and Injinji products work well for me.

Comments about Phantom 2

I bought these after buying the FliLyte 4s. The Phantom 2s are a great complement. 5mm drop is not that different than the standard 10mm drops so it's a great transition shoe. I love the cushioning, too. It's not soft and springy- it's firm and feels great even after 10 miles. It's also very supportive- I think I can probably take these off-road. The toe rocker took a couple miles to get used to. Demo this shoe!

Comments about Phantom 2

Love the underfoot cushioning on the Phantom 2- have been recovering from plantar fasciitis & the high stack & cushioning really help. For the next iteration of the Phantom would like to see a bit lighter shoe overall & a more breathable upper material. Would also like to see a variation of the Phantom as a trail shoe.

Bottom Line Yes, I would recommend to a friend
