Great for walking, running, and casual wear!
As an ambassador for Topo I mostly test out their trail shoes but when I do run the road and for longer distances I usually wear the Fli-lyte 2's. They have more cushion than say the ST-2's but are still very lightweight. I also love the orange stylish color and wear mine for casual wear all the time. Super comfortable shoe for walking, short runs, and long runs.
Pillows for my feet
Topo hit a homerun with Fli-lyte2! My feet’s pillow shoes on road! I suffered from foot pain during my road running. I tried all types of shoes adidas, mizuno, new balance, Nike none helped my pain until topo came around!
The wide toe box and minimal design has been a life saver for my feet! The Fli-Lyte2 is light, responsive and cushion is soft like a pillow for my feet! My foot pain is gone and I can enjoy road running again!
Only downside is laces can come undone from time to time, but that’s not a deal breaker when you have happy feet while running!
Happy to be part of the Topo Ambassador team this year!
Light and Responsive
I consider myself a trail runner and I had tried to avoid running on the road at all costs - until I gave the Fli-Lyte 2 a run. They are amazing. They are lightweight, and despite having some cushion, they are extremely responsive. I love that I can still feel the road and still have a little cushion in my shoes. With the Fli-Lyte 2, road running can be enjoyable for me. I have been able to wear them for short, quick runs and long, slow runs up to 16 miles with no problems - Topo Ambassador
Light and Fast
Love these shoes. These were my first experience with TOPO and I feel like I finally found a shoe that actually fits my foot. They feel incredibly fast. I've been using them for my speed workouts and will be giving them their first race test in a week. I have no doubts they will perform perfectly. I am a long distance road runner.
Feel Like I'm Running Barefoot in Fli-Lyte 2's
I was hesitant to switch running shoe brands, but once I tried the Topo Fli-Lyte 2's I was hooked. I literally feel like I'm running without shoes when wearing these. They are super light and easy to put on during triathlon transitions. I'm now an Ambassadro for Topo, but my feedback is written from an average Joe who became excited about the brand long before taking on an Ambassador role.
Short or long runs
by Kyle R.
I have grown to really love this shoe. For the first few months I only wore them on shorter track/tempo runs but over time I started using them for longer (20+ miles). they are light and quick on the track yet comfortable and supportive enough for longer runs. Interested to see how they hold up with more miles. Overall, a great value.
Amazing Shoes, will never buy another brand
Topo is a great shoe for my foot. I love the FLI-LYTE 2 , they are great on the roads and are the most comfortable shoes I have ever worn. I originally had the Magnifly and they were great. I only switched to the FLI-LYTE 2 because the Magnifly 2 was not out yet. If you like a big toe box and have funny looking feet like me, TOPO is a great shoe to try.

Just enough cushion while maintaining that road feel. Light, fast, responsive. Not too soft and not too stiff - just right! This is now my goto workhorse replacing my Altra (Torin, Escalante & Instinct). The 3mm stack is a nice alternative to the 0mm and I've found alternating a good way to strengthen/challenge the body/feet. I've been trying to find that sweet spot that Newton Running (Gravity) gave me - Looking no further. These kicks are awesome!
