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...

Comments about Terraventure 2

I hike about 8-15 miles per week. Before when I came back from a hike I would be fairly desperate to take off my ankle-high boots (K**n Targhees). I do love those waterproof boots because of the ample toe box. Well, Topo has done things one better. The Terraventure2 is so comfy I just keep walking around in them even when I really should just take them off. I tried the Trailventure WP boots but found them a bit stiff. Regardless, the Terraventures dry out pretty fast after a dip during a stream crossing so I don't feel the need for waterproof-ness unless there is a considerable amount of ice/snow. Actually, recently I took the Terraventures into icy conditions with microspikes and they performed admirably. I am looking forward to trying some of the other shoes (Ultraventures, Hydraventures) in the future.

Bottom Line Yes, I would recommend to a friend

Comments about Terraventure 2

I originally ran the Altra Timp series and decided to change things up because of their lack of durability and stiffness - my feet consistently sloshed over the sole due to the flexibility of the upper material, esp on technical trails with quick changes in direction. After learning that Topo had similar design features that were important to me - namely the large toe box and zero/low drop, I purchased my first pair of Topos. I purchased the Runventure 2 series and they were exactly what I was looking for! I got well over 400 miles out of them before the upper finally gave way. They were light as a feather, had amazing ground feel, and were stiff enough to keep my feet centered over the sole. To this day, they're still probably my favorite trail shoe. My second and most recent pair are the Terraventure 2's. They still need to be broken in some more but after 3 runs of steep, muddy, and rocky terrain (about 20mi), I have to say, they're stiffer than my last pair, and man do they grip! I feel incredibly stable and locked in, even when I'm flying downhill on very slick trails. There's a bit less ground feel than my previous pair but that's to be expected with the higher stack that offers some much-needed protection from sharp rocks that I used to feel quite noticeably through the soles of the Runventures. To mention another upgrade, the Runventure 2's had some unfortunately skinny laces that didn't disperse pressure evenly enough, often causing some upper foot pain (for me). I'm glad to see that the Terraventure 2's laces are thicker and more cushioned. That being said, I think they're a tad too short. And that truly is my only complaint. The rest of the shoe is dialed in and I'm excited to see how long they'll last me. All in all, I'm very grateful for the products that Topo has designed and I'm stoked to see what they have to offer in the future. Also no blisters or uncomfy rubbing spots (and I couldn't read the size of my last pair because the ink wore off so I just bought the same size that I wear in Altra's)!

Durable, stable, and stiff - Keep it up Topo!

Bottom Line Yes, I would recommend to a friend

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.

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.

Bottom Line Yes, I would recommend to a friend
