Product Overview

In the new Fli-Lyte 3, we eliminated almost all printed overlays to make it lighter and more breathable using a new engineered mesh upper to secure the foot over the platform. The addition of our 5mm anti-microbial Ortholite® footbed gives the shoe a softer ride without sacrificing midsole response. A 23mm X 20mm stack height offers cushioning without losing flexibility and ground feel for a more natural running experience. These 3mm drop running shoes also feature our signature roomy toe box.

Good shoe - poor insole!

I'm a PT and have been recommending Topos for quite some time due to the low drops and ample toe box, but this is my first pair of my own. Pros - Sufficient cushion without getting marshmallow-y - Moderate toe box width - is an easier transition for those who would like a more foot-...

Too Short

To start with, this is my 7th pair of Topo shoes. I'm a big fan and have logged hundreds of miles in my Topo trail running shoes. These were my 3rd pair of Topo road shoes. The first thing I noticed out of the box was how much the toe was squared off across the front compared to my other Topo's. ...

As a runner with lower back issues I have been struggling to find a brand with fit and comfort that would reduce the "next day" discomfort of lower back and knee issues (I played contact sports for 25 years). I reduced my miles as a result because I struggled to find road shoes that fit the bill. I was reluctant to switch from other brands-suffice to say the FL-3 is THE best running shoe I have ever purchased. Enough support, stability, room (nice toebox!), and comfort to make my knee and back issues all but disappear (I have 20+ on them so far). I have purchased many "running" brands (Brooks, Mizuno, ASICS, to name a few) and Topo is tops! I am sold! Next up, Trail shoes!

Bottom Line Yes, I would recommend to a friend

Not sure about miles but, Topos are all I ever wear 24/7. I also golf in them daily. I really love the extra room in the toe. Feels like I'm going barefoot. A dear friend turned me on to these and I am so happy. Love the colors. Please keep adding extra Men's vibrant colors! Maybe even purple someday? I have bright yellow/red, orange red, green, yellow/teal, etc. My friends always ask me where I got them?

The perfect shoe

Perfect lightweight shoe. I used to get various typical running injuries a couple of times a year, but they've pretty much stopped once I started wearing FlyLites. I'm on my fourth or fifth pair. Recurring injuries stopped once I started wearing these. I noticed that Topo appears to be discontinuing the FliLyte 3 and my size is no longer available. Really hoping you are just doing that because FliLyte 4 is coming shortly!

Bottom Line Yes, I would recommend to a friend

I use them for (Nordic) Walking. I love the roomy toe box (where my toes can splay naturally), the low drop en breathability. Walking becomes very natural with Fli-Lyte 3.

I have used many shoes in many brands - Saucony, New Balance, Hoka, Brooks, Atra. This Topo is one of the best fitting, best contoured shoes I've owned. No hot spots (a big goal of mine). It's under-rated and underestimated. I hope Topo isn't phasing it out because I plan to keep using it for a long time

Great feeling and looking shoe. The wider toe box is a game changer, especially if you have wider feet. I will definitely be getting more. Thanks
