Product Overview

The Topo Terraventure 3 train runners and hikers deliver a lightweight and rugged ride on technical terrain. A new split mesh upper provides security through the heel and midfoot, with increased breathability and durability in the forefoot. The dual-density midsole is paired with an OrthoLite® insole to provide a soft and comfortable ride right below the foot, with firmer response near the ground. We upgraded the outsole with Vibram® Megagrip to deliver the ultimate grip on any surface, wet or dry. Generously spaced lugs offer excellent mud and snow release, while the flexible forefoot rock plate provides protection on technical trails.

Not the winner I hoped for. I have the MTN racer 2 and love it besides the mesh tongue(creates pressure points). I was hoping the Terraventure 3 would be the perfect update for comfort on trail descents. The padded tongue is great however there is a bulky outer strap on the side of the shoe that pai...

I used the terraventure 3 for the first half of my Hayduke thru hike this autumn and couldn't of been happier with the shoe. It was the right balance of durable, comfortable, and with good grip. I found myself slowly realising that this shoe was doing everything I had wished the Altra Lonepeak would do. As much as I enjoy the Lonepeak I find that for rugged ground or grip critical situations they just don't provide the support, durability, or grip I want from a shoe. The terraventure was able to deal with rough ground and stuck rock in a way that inspired confidence. Moving forward this shoe will be my first choice! So Topo, I hope you are listening, one of the worst things a shoe maker can do is keep changing up a good shoe for no reason, and god forbid making it worse. You've got a good shoe here, please don't alter anything unless you've got a really good reason to!!

Shoe Nirvana. AT thru hike choice.

Submitted

By Joe

From Chippewa Falls WI

In my search for the right shoe for a 2023 AT thru hike I've tried several differnt shoe brands and models. Spent many years/miles on Salomon. But I was drawn to the benifits of a wider toe box and zero drop shoes. So, went thru a couple of pairs of Altra's and Inov 8. Those were heading in the right direction, but the Altras were a bit soft on rocky surfaces resulting in foot fatigue and the Inov 8 were a bit narrow. Saw an ad for Topo and thought I'd give them a try. This is my 2nd pair now. Showe Nirvana. Ample room, great traction, and show very little wear considering the mileage I've logged on them. It's nice to just walk and not think about my feet. Great shoe.

The best trail shoe I've ever used

This is hands down one of the best shoes on the market for trail running/hiking. Topos design on all their shoes is amazing but I'll keep buying this until they stop selling it.

Comments about Terraventure 3

Really like this shoe and highly recommend it, unfortunately it doesn't work for me. The roomy toe box is exactly what I was looking for, however the heel area of the shoe is a bit too tight for me, my heel bone is a bit prominent so I started getting blisters right away. Again this is a awesome shoe just doesn't work for my foot anatomy.

Bottom Line Yes, I would recommend to a friend

great traction, comfort and support. will be using these on a long hike. hard part is finding these phenomenal shoes anywhere (including online store). highly recommend for anyone that wants a light, low cut shoe for rough/uneven terrain. (buy a half size larger that what you wear)

Comments about Terraventure 3

Love Topos and this shoe doesn't disappoint. Great support and tight in the heel. I have issues with a narrow heel and need shoes that fit tight or the shoe flops on my foot. These lock in. Was a huge fan of the old Montrail Mountain Masochists and have now found my replacement in the Terraventure. Im not crazy over the color selection. I got the blue ones and they are meh.

Great feeling shoe

Everything I was looking for: secure heel, supportive collar, open toe box, good traction, good ventilation quick drying. Great for day hikes Not a lot of lateral support, but if you want that, buy a high top hiker.

Bottom Line Yes, I would recommend to a friend
