Product Overview

Ultrafly 3 delivers a smooth and comfortable ride with light guidance for daily training. The moderately cushioned platform features a 2-density midsole with ZipFoam™ for more long-term resilience and a higher rebound than traditional EVA. The external TPU heel counter and EVA medial post offer rear-foot stability and light pronation resistance. The engineered mesh upper provides a seamless and breathable fit, while the molded foam collar and Ortholite® footbed offer additional comfort.

Ideal daily trainer

I love the fly lyte 3's simplicity and sleekness. I have ran everything from hard intervals to 2 hour plus runs in those shoes with good success. I have a long history of insertional Achilles issues, and intermediate drop shoes seem to be the sweet spot for me. I have found over time that I enjoy a ...

Another regression design wise

I feel this is another shoe that has regressed design wise. I feel the upper, while comfortable, doesn't provide enough support without the overlays that were on Ultrafly 2- (which is an excellent shoe). The other complaint I have is I'm not sure Zipfoam is the answer for midsole material. The foref...

I liked the Ultrafly 2, but I didn't love the printed overlay as it had a tendency to fold and pinch in points, so I went away to a different shoe. When I saw the new Ultrafly 3, I loved the lack of the overlay and gave them another try. This is an amazing update and my new favorite shoe. My longest run so far is 8 miles, and they've been comfortable the entire way. I hope Topo keeps these around for a while because they really are perfect for me.

Bottom Line Yes, I would recommend to a friend

Roomy footbed feels great for wide feet. Extremely comfortable & more stylish than I thought they'd be for a training/running shoe.

Comments about Ultrafly 3

The Ultrafly 3's are terrific. Well cushioned, excellent support and stability, and (for me) a perfect heel/toe drop of 5mm. The heal cup fits really well (e.g., snug and cushioned) and the toe box is awesome. I am a long-time runner (e.g., everything from marathons to 5 Ks and some Tri's) and Brooks loyalist. After trying On's Cloudflyer, I gave the Ultrafly 3's a try based on a knowledgeable recommendation, and they are awesome. So good that after a month, I bought a second pair and then a pair of Ultraventure Pro's for winter and trail running. Great shoes. Highly recommended. Topo, please don't mess these up making silly, trendy changes.

Bottom Line Yes, I would recommend to a friend

Comments about Ultrafly 3

The Ultraflys have a great fit and a moderate amount of cushioning for runs of any length. In addition they are fairly light and quick, making them my go-to training shoe for medium to longer runs. Great job Topo!

Q

How light weight are the shoes? Can you buy shoes that are sized wider in the toe box to accommodate a wider foot??

Asked by ?
Verified Reply - MelanieThe men's Ultrafly 3 is 9.6 oz (for a men's size 9). We only make shoes in one width (wider in the toe box, medium fit through the midfoot and heel) but we hope to be able to offer "wide" shoes sometime in the future!
