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.
Anatomical toe box allows toes to spread naturally and comfortably.
For a '2nd Skin' fit and feel.
Comfortable, anti-compression footbed with anti-microbial properties.
Great update to the Fly-lite line. Feels a little bouncier than the 2 and the new upper is really nice. I'd recommend this shoe for everyone.
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. When I first tried them on they felt short in length. I figured I'd give them a go and let my foot mold in to the foot bed. After a 12 mile run, I knew these shoes were not for me. They fit completely different then my other Topo's. The length feels quite short and by the end of my run, my toes were in pain from rubbing across the toe box. The squared off toe box design seems to take away some length. The width was great and the material comfortable everywhere else. I was disappointed in this shoes design and will be exchanging them with Topo.

I put about 15 miles on a pair of Fli-Lyte 2 shoes and the black portion of the sole at the heal is separating. Looking at the situation, it appears that the sole material is just too soft and I hope that this problem is solved with the Fli-Lyte 3, if not I would not recommend the shoe. I like the fit of the shoe and it is comfortable to run in, but it does not appear to be durable.
Right now I'm using this as my runner on short road runs and around town. Really love the comfort, fit and breathability on this shoe. It is very lightweight and wearing it all day doesn't leave my feet fatigued at all. I usually wear a size 10 and this one was not different. Highly recommend!

I had three pairs of the Fli-Lyte 2's, and really loved them. The size is off on the new model, as I always wore 10.5 in the 2's but had to return my first pair to get size 11 with this new model. The new insole is also really bad, and the underside and edges feels like sand paper, giving me a massive blister on my first run. I swapped the insoles out for my old ones from my Fly-Lyte 2's and it was much better. There's also extra cushioning around the Achilles tendon that hasn't bothered me yet, but feels uncomfortable. Overall with the bigger size and different inserts it's a great shoe so far.
