Comments about MT-3

These are my third pair of topos. If you like the fit in general, you should love these! They are a tiny bit more snug than other styles, but I love that. They hug my feet in a really comfortable way! (Also, I always add aftermarket inserts for my arches. Even before I did that, this model was a bit more snug than others). The fabric is lighter than other models, which is really nice in the summer. Overall love these shoes. Beware if you are getting the orange color: they are REALLY ORANGE.

Bottom Line Yes, I would recommend to a friend

Bought first pair. Really like the feel. Some said they were too shiny but I thought it was a sleek look and they are a trail shoe so you want them to repel some water. I like them

I was shopping for other brands that offer a wide toe box and still both have a low drop, solid build, and good look and I found it in this shoe. If you like Altra, you'll like Topo.

Bottom Line Yes, I would recommend to a friend

Not sure why this shoe was on sale, I hope they do not discontinue it. Hopefully they are just updating it.
