Product Overview

Combining the lightness of a running shoe with the rugged durability of a trail shoe, the Terraventure 2 features a 2-density injected EVA midsole on a rugged Vibram® XS Trek outsole. Deeper, more generously spaced lugs improve underfoot traction in mud and slush and a flexible forefoot rock plate adds protection against rocks and roots. With a fully gusseted tongue, the durable mesh and PU printed upper of our all terrain running shoes now features drainage ports for water release and quicker drying. A 5mm anti-microbial Ortholite® footbed resists compression set and odor and our uniquely fitted gaiter attachment makes it compatible with our stretch nylon Topo gaiter (optional and sold separately). Like all Topo models, these low drop trail running shoes feature a snug fit in the waist and heel with a roomy toe box for a more comfortable running experience.

Rocky, Technical, Fast Trail Running? Terraventure 2 is your

Over 200 trail miles here in the rocky and technical trails of Tucson, I am loving these shoes! Durability of the outsole continues to impress after tearing up LaSportiva Mutants under 100mi and Altra Lone Peaks in 200mi. Our trails are rocky, spiky, technical, steep, and loose and this time of year...

Good Trail Shoe But Not Good For Technical

Good all around trail sneaker but.... Definitely not for technical running!!! I run in Magniflys daily on road and totally love them, but this does not translate well to rocky, technical trail running. This might pass for hiking or just regular trail runs, but beware, it's way too loose a f...

I am a 47 years old trailrunner, flat foot and I was looking for years for a perfect shoe for my training sessions in the rainy, muddy and cold days. I used to wear Altra since a couple of years I've tried Asics, Brooks, Salomon, Hoka...and I thiink that the Topo TA 2 is by far the best for me. No ankle pain, no fatigue in long distance trainings, not as heavy as my Cascadia. I loved it since the first time I ran on it. The only complainment is there´s no place for buy it here in Chile and the cost with the shipping make my cry but ... i love it.

Bottom Line Yes, I would recommend to a friend

Easily my favorite hiking shoe of all time. Heel is locked in, midfoot is comfortably snug, toes can splay to their heart's content. After about six months they still look brand new. The Vibram soles grip like hiking shoes, not trail runners and are excellent in both wet and lose conditions. Doubt I will ever buy another pair of Lone Peaks; the only thing I prefer about them is the 0 drop. I also own a pair of Topo Trail Ventures. While they are a good shoe they fit entirely differently, and not well at all for me. There is way more volume in the mid-foot also more volume in the heel, and even after adding two insoles in the middle and rear of the boots I am still slipping around in them way more than I would like. The vaunted lace locks do not seem to work that well and the laces themselves are skinny and slippery and drastically lower quality than the Terraventure 2's.

Bottom Line Yes, I would recommend to a friend

Comments about Terraventure 2

I've had these for a little over a month now and have used them exclusively for trail hiking. They perform well on varying terrain so far, from grassy rolling trails in the NE Kansas area to primitive double diamond trails in Central Arizona. The wide toe box is a must for my ugly feet, and the metatarsal cushioning has held up well. They are a tad squishy side to side, but this has been mostly mitigated through lacing them up a bit tighter than I normally would.

I run trails about 5 days a week, and have owned various Topo shoes for the last few years. I have had 2 pairs of hydraventures, ultrafly, magnafly, & mountain racer. I love the fit and grip of all things Topo! This shoe is excellent, so far it has been in dirt, mud, snow, creeks and gravel and that is just the first week. New color scheme is very cool. The shoe fits well, is breathable, warm enough. The tread pattern is excellent.

Bottom Line Yes, I would recommend to a friend

I used a shoe stretcher on them and now they are my favorite shoe for all surfaces (roads and trails). They also do well in 3 inches of snow.

Great shoes, have been nearly perfect for my foot shape and running style. I'm 6'2" and weigh around 235 and wear these for 2- 5 mile trail runs during the week and 8-12 mile hike/trail runs most Saturdays. I wear a 14 usually and don't have the luxury of going up or down half a size if the fit isn't right. I had been running in Altra for the extra toe box space, but they always seemed too wide in the rest of the shoe. The Terraventure 2 has enough toe box space for me without being too wide, and I get a great lockdown in the heel and midfoot. I run mostly steep rock and root covered trails in the wet PNW and get great traction on the hills without having my foot sliding forward like they did in the Altras. Looking forward to trying the Ultraventures soon.

Bottom Line Yes, I would recommend to a friend
