Magnifly 4 delivers the ultimate zero drop comfort on the road. The secure and breathable upper features a new look and is now made of a recycled engineered mesh, equivalent to three 16 oz. plastic water bottles per pair. New lace stays keep the tongue secure over the foot. We upgraded the dual-density midsole with ZipFoam™ for increased response and compression resistance. The antimicrobial OrthoLite® footbed offers additional comfort directly underfoot. A sweeping toe rocker design aids in propulsion and a smooth transition of these zero drop men's shoes, while the widened 25 mm platform offers a smoother and even more comfortable ride. Strategically placed rubber on the outsole provides slip and abrasion resistance just where you need it.

First topo for road running
This are my second Topos, the first one are for trail (athletic MT-4), I am very pleased with my trail running shoes so decided to give a try and get some for road running, since my adidas Ultraboost are to narrow on my feet. Today I did an easy 5 miles on my new topos and it was pretty good. I thou...ght my feet were going to be moving from side to side but I did not happened. I cool down, did some errands (40 minutes) got home shower etc...and to my suprise my knees were not sore. Usually after 4 miles my knees start hurting and it take the whole day to calm down...but that never happend went i am tral running in my MT-4...only when I used my adidas , so the fact that I did not had any pain today is a huge victory for me. I am pretty happy with my purchase.

I don't understand where this fits in the lineup.
I have ran in the magnifly since the OG. I really liked the 2s as they were snappy, and easily lasted more than 300 miles. I liked the zipfoam in the cyclone, so I figured I would give the 4s a shot. First, the good. The upper was very comfortable. The toe box was very roomy, and the heel provided ...a decent lockdown for certain feet. The tongue was comfortable and provided just the right amount of cushion for the top of the foot. Now for the rest. The fit for me is not quite right. I was assured by the rep that I was a size 9 (as I am in the previous magnifly/mtn racer 2/cyclone) and they feel slightly long. I think the 8.5 would be too short. Even with the narrow heel, my foot still moved around in one shoe so I would recommend a runners lace lock if that happens. The midsole felt DOA. Initial step in was soft but this didn't translate to a snappy nor responsive feel. I felt like I was slightly bottoming out each step as if I was running in a shoe 300 miles after someone else. Multiple times during the run I wanted to take them off and felt some slight dull pain in the heel. I was surprised as I run in zero drop shoes and lower stack shoes quite a bit. There are a few creases in the midsole already leading me to think these won't last much more than about 150 miles. I struggle to find where this fits in the road lineup. It reminded me of the fli lyte 3s but with zip foam (haven't ran in the 4s). I would look at the phantom 2s or the cyclone if one was interested in a TOPO road shoe. The phantoms fit different than the rest of the lineup, but are more durable. The cyclone's heel bugs some, but I enjoyed them. Only negative was they lasted about 180 miles.

"It's as if this shoe was made exactly for you!"
"It's as if this shoe was made exactly for you" is what the running store sales rep had to say when I tried on the Magnify 4 for the first time. I have completed several runs in them since purchasing; so far so good! Other than some minor soreness on the bottoms of my big toes when breaking them in, the comfort has been fantastic. I have traditionally ran in minimal shoes but decided to give these a shot for my longer runs and glad I did. It had been several years since I last ran in a pair of Topo shoes, but happy I gave them another try. Now I am planning on getting a few other pairs of Topo shoes - a pair of Ultrafly, Specter, and another pair for the trails!
A real winner if you need cushioning
I'm a zero drop minimalist fan but due to some medical issues I need a more cushioned show nowadays. The magnify 4s fit the bill!! Lots of toe room and just the right cushioning throughout. Not too springy, not too stiff. Very happy with my purchase, I bought 2.
My third set
I've owned the Magnifly 2 and Magnifly 3, the Magnifly 4 is just as fantastic! I run on asphalt and on dirt/gravel trails. This shoe performs amazing as I am 6'2" and weigh 260lbs they provide enough cushion for a stable run and are not heavy at all at size 14. This is the heaviest I've been in my life and they still fit like a dream.
Amazing show, outrageously comfortable but why so ugly
LOVE these shoes but for the love of god who is choosing the colors??? Can we get an all black or something not so absolutely tacky??? Please send note to outdated stylist because this gayTM wants more relaxed color patterns. This shoe is absolutely perfect, amazingly comfortable, besides the fact that I feel like an ancient dad wearing them with these horrific colors. Please. PLEASE, give us an all black in the updated version of this show!!! Something without a white sole?!

Best upper hands down!
The Magnafly 4 was the best upper on a shoe I've put in my feet. What a terrific shoe. I ended up with a issue with my right shoe and reached out to CS. Sam from CS was very helpful and went above and beyond to ensure I was satisfied with the outcome. Don't sleep on this company or their shoes
I have been running for years. I have tried every brand of shoes. Before these I was running in a zero drop shoe from another company. After running in these they are my favorite . Just the right amount of cushion and responsiveness. I am training for a half marathon. Love this shoe and am excited to try other models. Also awesome customer service!!
The 4 got it right!
I am a zero drop guy ( a runner since 1972) . The Magnifly 4 is a great upgrade from the previous 3 model. It must be the zipfoam but cushioning is not too soft nor tóo hard, well balanced. Have only had 3 runs (18 miles total in this shoe) but it is now cemented in my shoe cycle with Altra Rivera. Great job Topo!!
Close to perfect
First pair of Topos [long-time Altra user]. The Magnifly seems pretty great after first 3 runs. Does everything I want for a road shoe. LOVE the lacing system. Great balance between natural low profile flex, yet supportive. Grippy rubber outsole is much appreciated. Critiques: Couple mm long in length. Ankle cushioning is a little high, so it rubs a bit more than I like. Arch support is quite prominent for a low stack shoe; I prefer a slightly lower arch. Pretty great shoe.
It's a strong like
Great durability and good looking shoe. Came to Topo from Altra since Altra has progressively shied away from what made Altra great to begin with. In Topo I found a good ride with nice traction on the road. It's comfortable and roomy but not as flexible as Altra with a looooong break in period. My only gripe with the Magnifly is it needs to be more flexible.
