Let me start by saying Topo Athletic has the foundation to produce an amazing shoe with the Cyclone. I (almost) love it! I've been training and racing in Topo for many years, and primarily in the Fli-Lyte series (11 + pairs, Fli-Lyte versions 2-4). After the release of the Fli-Lyte 4 (the death of t...

Almost, maybe, I dunno.

So much to love about these shoes! However, with love, there's also hate. The goods: The upper is right on, well mostly. I purchased half size down as other reviewers recommended and it was the right call. The fit is great, upper is thin and lightweight and once laced down its hard to beat for the p...

Comments about Cyclone

With my latest pair of Topo, the Cyclone, I've been putting in the road miles with my dogs. This is my first pair of Topo's road shoe and am loving them as much as the many Topo trail running shoes I've worn through. The toe box gives my toes plenty of room to claw away at those miles and helps in my effort to experience unshod feet without running without heal-raise or barefooted.

Bottom Line Yes, I would recommend to a friend

Bargain of the year for my road race go-to.

Just a great no-nonsense shoe that feels right. The cushion is significant enough without adding much weight or sacrificing responsiveness. Really comfy toungue and lace fit, nice cradleon the heel and generous toe box I need. No updates needed!

Bottom Line Yes, I would recommend to a friend

Took these as my only shoes for a month in Wyoming. Ran 4 miles a day, walked 2 miles a day, hiked a few times, swam and paddleboarded -- perfect shoes for summer living.

Comments about Cyclone

I found TOPO a few years ago . I kept have foot issues and the larger toe box was the best thing that ever happened to me. Haven't had a foot problem since. Love them, I'm only running about 25 miles week.

Dependable, versatile shoe. Makes running fun!

TL/DR 1. Shoes are a good blend between responsive and cushioned. 2. The upper is thin and the he does not have any structure or heel cup. Felt great and did not cause any issues. 3. Great do it all shoe. ‐-------- I currently run in the Fli-Lyte 4 in a men's US 11. Based On reviews here and other websites, I ordered two pairs: a 10.5 and 11. 10.5 was fine but 11 felt better. The heel grab felt the same in both so I went with the 11 to maximize toe box room. Numerous reviews mention that the unstructured heel and lack of heel counter caused blistering and rubbing. I didn't have that experience at all. My first run was 2 hours along the Chicago lakeshore and the shoes felt great. The extra cushion and bounce of the Cyclones were appreciated and made the run fun. For what it is worth, my foot is a bit flatter and lower volume and I found the cyclone fit my foot-my midfoot especially-better than the fli-lyte. The fli lyte accommodates more foot shapes and instep heights due to its greater internal volume. Basically, I tighten the laces tighter on the fli lures where with the cyclones, I just slightly snug them and off I go. These shoes are awesome! Don't let the negative reviews scare you away.

Comments about Cyclone

This is a great fitting shoe that was recommended to me by someone who has over 2000 miles in topo shoes. His recommendation was perfectly spot on and I can't believe it took me this long to find a shoe that is truly comfortable and fits my foot perfectly. Seth King recommended these to me.

One of the best TOPO road running shoes this far

Submitted

By Alec

From Saint Paul, MN

Pros: - snug heel with no slippage - lightweight (2nd lightest in TOPO line-up) - comfy upper, good length although wouldn't want it any shorter - durable, 100+ miles so far without any signs of wear or breakdown Cons: - the only area for improvement I can appreciate is that the shock absorption seems to diminish during longer runs. Could this be zipfoam related?

love the light-weight razor thin sides. VERY strong material, well made, and super comfortable. Got compliments when out with wife, and the couple had never seen them. I'll be back for my next pair soon.
