Not quite right

I love my Topos, they're l great shoes. I rotate between 2x pair of Ultraventure v1's (2200km & 1350km), and a pair each of UV Pro's (325km), Mtn Racers (475km), and UV v2's (42km), all in size 11.5 US. But... The original UV v1 size 11.5 US fitted perfectly in toe box, mid foot and heel, and are ...

Not a True Successor

I run a lot, primarily on trails, and ONLY in Topo. The trails are steep, challenging, and technical. I buy 13 plus pairs of Topo a year. These shoes are dangerously sloppy when compared to the original Ultraventure. Topo claims the microfiber liner helps make them more secure; I can find no evidenc...

Best trail shoes with great support, cushion, and traction

Comments about Ultraventure 2

Nice shoes, great fit (size 14) with adequate cushion and just right amount of stability and motion control for my 6'3" 220lbs of Clydesdale running. The best fit I've ever had for my narrow heels and wide forefoot. Before I found Topo I suffered from neuroma in my forefeet from toe constriction. Now I only buy and run in Topo shoes and have healed completely. Please keep the fit and quality up to your current standards and I'll be a lifetime supporter! Thanks Topo! Same words of support go for the Ultrafly 3 which I use on street runs. My only issue with Topo is the lack of supply in my size (14), I have to constantly check on shoes because it seems they only make a few pair in this size and then I'm out of luck until a new model is released. Please make a few more in size 14 for me.

These shoes allowed me to trail run again!

After months of physical therapy to be able to run again I am 100% convinced Topos were part of my recovery and allow me to trail run again. I never knew how much cramming my toes into shoes with cramped toe boxes could affect my feet over time and ultimately painfully stop my running. Topos wide toe box allows me to flex and use my toes while I run without compromising fit or sliding on my feet. The design is incredibly comfortable but offers support and traction for trail running in all conditions. Ultraventure 2's are now my every day trail running shoe.

The best hiking shoe for me so far…

I am a walker, not a (trial)runner. For me this is the best hiking shoe I have had so far. Comfortable on any terrain. Wide toe box. Low drop. Very goed breathability. Good grip. Perfect fit. Great! Thanks Topo!

Comments about Ultraventure 2

This is my 3rd pair. It's the only pair of shoes and I can stand in for an entire day and have perfectly happy feet. I don't run, but hike a fair amount and tread on steep terrain at work a few times a week, so the versatility is important. That being said, I will get the new Topo boot next, but I'd love a Topo light hiking shoe with more neutral colors.

The Vibram sole is the main reason I purchased these over Altras. However, I've only got about 20 trail miles on these, so I hope they hold up as well as the other brand. If so, this is my new go-to brand.

Supportive and light

These are great for the trails! They are extremely supportive for trail running, and light enough to do a few miles. The ankle support prevents rolls, but the softer grip on the bottom allows for flexibility, yet still grippy enough to hit the trails hard with confidence. I also use this for disc golf, as well as trail running. Wish there were more color ways, but the functionality beats the looks. 100% recommend!

Goodbye Altra.. Hello Topo!

I had to ditch my Altra Lone Peak 5 and Superior 5 purchases for the common reason, poor Fit. Constant hot spot by the lower lace and upper toe box area but the Ultraventure solved that. The open toe box area is comfortable and no more hot spot that I was suffering with the Altra brand. I totally enjoy the 5mm drop and the awesome traction the outer soles provide. I hike and run approximately 3-5 miles on easy to moderate hard trails. My only feedback is the lack of cool color options.

Topos are perfect for my feet. I love the wide toe box combined with the firm fit through the mid foot and heel. My feet run a little on the narrow side but narrow shoes are always too narrow. I have had Runventures, MTN racers, and the Ultraventure 2. These Ultraventures are my favorite. I started with the Runventure 3. Mainly because that's the only model they had at my local running store. This was my first backpacking shoe. As a new backpacker, I was worried about foot problems, but these shoes were always perfectly comfortable and I never had any foot or toe problems. I decided to try the Ultraventures just to explore a more cushioned, higher stack shoe. I thought it might feel "squishy" and unsupportive, but that is not the case at all. Just pure comfort and plenty of support. And once again, no foot or toe problems.
