100 miles so far, and no sign of stopping!

So far after 100 miles of rocky muddy PNW trails, I think Topo nailed these. I really enjoy these boots. I bought them to fill the gap between my waterproof Keen hiking boots, and my Altra Lone Peaks. First off; if you're used to Altras, you'll feel right at home in these. It has a wide toe box, w...

PAIN AND DISCOMFORT

I'm a trail runner, hiker, and backpacker that had high hopes this boot was the solution for all 3 activities....sadly, it's WAY OFF THE MARK. The FRONT TOP TOE BOX CREASE issue is consistent and true from all the negative reviews online. The front top toe box is a rigid material that crinkles down...

The most comfortable boot I've EVER backpacked in

Rated 5 out of 5 stars

From Fairview Park, Ohio

I have transitioned to Topos for trailrunning and they are incredibly comfortable while still providing the support and traction needed for wet, muddy and icy trails. My backpacking boots were becoming more uncomfortable over time compared to my Topos so I took a risk and bought my first pair of Topo boots, the Trailventures. I trained in these and ultimately completed a 54 mile backpacking trip in the Adirondacks. THEY WERE FANTASTIC! I work in the wildlife profession and I now wear these everyday for work. As soon as Topo has my size in stock again I will but another pair. After years of hiking and backpacking in the US ARMY infantry and wildlife profession these are hands down the most comfortable boot I have EVER worn. However they also completely supported me with a 50 pound pack on in challenging terrain and moving through sharp rocks and roots.

Grand Canyon Rim to Rim Hike, 26Miles. Amazing boots!!

From Lindsay, Ca

I recently hiked the Grand Canyon, Rim 2 Rim, over 26 miles of hiking and used the Trailventure boots. The boots performed extremely well and they were very comfortable. The hike included loose gravel, rocks, mud, puddles, and river crossings and the Topos boots kept my feet dry, sturdy, and comfortable. I highly recommend these boots for any outdoor adventure.

Comments about Trailventure

Used for 5 day backpack with 45 lb at first down to 38 lb pack later straight upon delivery. Moving 7-10 hrs per day. No blisters or other fit issues. Feet stayed remarkably dry and no dust penetration (with gaiters). Mostly cross country in Sierras and experienced good stability and grip on variable surfaces. Not tight for class 3 but still usable. Overall my best boot purchase in a long time. No idea yet about durability.

Comments about Trailventure

I've been doing stair drills with about 40lbs ony back in prep for our Amalfi Coast tour group that we run. I use prescription inserts and need a large toe box. The inserts fit great and the topos are very comfortable. When these wear out, I'll buy another.

roomy toe hiking shoe, very light, comfortable

From Big Bend, Texas

7 days Big Bend, TX, thumbs up! perfect for desert washes or trails. They did run a little warm but I wore thick hiking socks too so that contributed & had a 30-40lb pack. Fantastic on flat, pebble, 1-2 inch ground rocks, dirt, trails, & superb traction crawling on big rock climbs & wet. Con: a little mushy sole, hiking on very super jagged rocks 3'-6" for 4-5 hours, feet got a little sore. If you like a very hard sole shoe do not buy these. I would buy again & wear again on same trip.

Bottom Line Yes, I would recommend to a friend

Woman who answered my call to your main number was the best customer service person ever. I had questions on Trailventure shoes I just received re fit. She covered construction differences between these and my Ultraventures, lacing, best length and material socks to wear. She was professional patient positive pleasant courteous highly knowledgeable. Feel terrible I don't recall her name.

bought these for the numerous trails near my new house. researched first, read the reviews went to my local running store and went back and forth with the very knowledgeable owner. I did see and hear the upper movement and sound that other reviews indicated, but was not put off. then out to the trails--some fairly technical , no issues, no problems---flat turns up or down. also with headphones on--shoe sound is not a factor maybe I scared off a random chipmunk? I've very pleased and plan on rotating in another pair of WP's
