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 ...

Wish Topo would still make a max cushion road shoe with EVA

I previously had the original Utrafly and the Ultrafly 2, both of which I loved. They were the perfect balance of cushioning and support, and the EVA foam had the ideal blend of firmness and springy response. The Ultrafly 3 now uses Topo's Zipfoam cushioning, which I believe is TPU based. It's much ...

5 miles feels like 1

I use this pair for road running. I've spent nearly 10 years trying to find a shoe that fits my wide toe box, and prevents ankle roll inward, while still having a normal arch. These shoes have been a life saver, 5 miles feels like 1. No pains in my knees or hips anymore. A must try!

Comments about Ultrafly 3

These shoes have a great fit for my feet: wide in the toe box and more narrow in the mid-section and heel. They are similar in fit to the original Ultraventure that I loved. I ordered 1/2 size longer than my normal size, like I have with other Topo shoes. Stability and comfort are very good.

Great transition into Topo

I come from many years of ASICS, so I was cautious trying a new style of shoe. I tried on a Topo model with 0mm heel-toe offset in the store and was really surprised by the great feel. I was really intrigued by the brand but wanted to ease into the style more gradually. I've been running in my ultrafly 3 for 500 miles in 4 months now, and they have been great! Highly recommend.

Comments about Ultrafly 3

I'm an older female who has been buying men's shoes for a few years because of problems with the metatarsal bones and have been unable to get women's shoes wide enough. The problem with men's shoes is if they're wide in the toe box, they're wide in the heels etc. The shape of the TOPO shoe is incredible. They're roomy in the toe box where needed but they fit in the heels. I have purchased two pair for walking and a pair of the trail shoes for more strenuous trails - just in the last couple of months as I wear sneakers 24/7. My husband bought his first pair and I have recommended them to my daughter. Please don't change the design! They're the best.

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!Was this answer helpful to you
