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. The overlay-free engineered mesh upper made of 30% recycled materials keeps 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...

Stepping on the harder outside of the midsole

Almost the perfect shoe. Unfortunately the new outsole design is hurting the outside of my foot. Where the softer part sist in the middle this creates a hard outer part that I'm stepping on. No point of having a wider toebox if the sole is buildt in like that. Should be the same platform overall tha...

Comments about Phantom 2

I'm not a distance warrior usually run a 5k or less with an occasional 10k. I've been looking for a wider toe box shoe for what seems like forever and was pointed to Topo by a friend, and I'm thrilled I bought these without ever trying them on in-store. I read tons of reviews, and as others stated, they seem to run a half-size small.

Bottom Line Yes, I would recommend to a friend

Comments about Phantom 2

Mostly walk in mine, but do the occasional charity 5k. Very comfortable, but feel a little too soft/squishy after a long walk. Might need a little more firmness for my 250lb frame. Love the natural foot shape and my feet thank me everyday!

Bottom Line Yes, I would recommend to a friend

Wow! Each new pair of Topo shoes I try, they just get better and better. First the Ultrafly, then the Ultraventure and now this. These are the plushest of the three, and are perfect for fast walking in the city. Wide enough to wear with my perfect toe spacers!

Bottom Line Yes, I would recommend to a friend
