Great right out of the box. Replaced the Ultraventure which I also loved. These have pretty much the same feel but a little more grip on the bottom which is nice. Use to be an Altra fan but Topo has won my loyalty. I just hope the don't sell out to China like Altra.

Bottom Line Yes, I would recommend to a friend

Use this for trail running here in New Zealand. They have been great through mud, roots, dust and rocks. I got half a size large and they are fantastic. The heel felt a little loose in store but is great on the trail. Super light and they shed water amazingly! I have managed to wear a hole in the upper after 1.5months, this seems to be the only weak spot.

Comments about Ultraventure Pro

Topo athletic shoes are a great fit for my feet. I have wider feet and benefit from the shape of the toe box design. This particular shoe has Vibram soles that are sturdy and durable. I live in the South West. I run trails in the Mojave region. The trails are rocky and prickly yet I felt fine and stable. They feel, in my opinion, light weight. Again, I only go out 2-3 times most weeks. Then, I use them for long hikes in desert conditions. These are the second pair of Topo athletic shoes. The other pair are still used but I reserve them for roads and paved trails.

Bottom Line Yes, I would recommend to a friend

Shoes fit great! I have a wide foot and the toolbox has plenty of room. Felt like the heel was a little loose in the store but on the trails its magic. Nice and light with great grip and amazing ability to breathe and shed water! Wore them running and climbing for 16 hrs yesterday and feet still felt great!

Just got these 11-28-20. My first ever trail shoe, have always worn boots, and I love them. Straight out of the box to the trail & a brisk paced 6 miles in Southern Indiana hills & my feet felt great. Great grip on the trail, rock plate works well, & my toes never hurt like they have in a few of my boots. Heel & mid foot felt secure & toes felt like they had plenty of room. Looking forward to putting many more miles on these bad boys.

Great shoes

I trail run 100 KM (62 miles) a week on average and climb (while running) an average of 4000m (13,123 feet) a week. This shoe is sadly a complete waste of money for trail running. It's as if they designed it to not fit people that fit in their best reviewed trail shoe, the original Ultraventure. It is sloppy and I'll fitting in the mid-foot and heel; this is pretty much in line with what reviewers are saying about the shoe. The 'Believe in the Run' quote was selectively chosen. I love Topo, but this shoe not worth the money, even if it were half the price it would still be flawed. If I wanted an Altra fit, I'd buy Altra, cheaper, less blowouts, and more widely available. In just the last year I have bought 11 pairs of Topo shoes, I go through two pairs every 2.5 months on average. The Phantom, Ultraventure, Ultrafly 3, and MTN Racer (objectively shorter than others), all in size 12, fit nearly identical in the mid foot and heel; the Runventure 3 (objectively longer than others in the same size 12) fits snug in the heel in-line with the others although it fits a but sloppy in the mid foot (another case of why not just buy Altra since this is not the 'Topo Fit'), however, it still is a far superior fit than the Ultraventure Pro. It may be that this shoe is good for through hiking, but it should not be marketed as a trail running shoe. Some people may like it, maybe those that like shoes that strike firm with little to no ground feel. However, I find it difficult to believe that anyone that fits perfectly into the Ultrafly 3, Phantom, Ultraventure, MTN Racer, and Runventure 3 could possibly find this shoe to fit well. This is a step backwards in so many ways from the original Ultraventure, to which Topo might argue is because it isn't an Ultraventure, to which I would ask, why call it an Ultraventure 'Pro' when nothing about it is very similar to the original, and even less about it is 'pro'. If this shoe sells as many pairs as the original Ultraventure, I can only guess it to be the result of some magical marketing. Just don't buy.

Bottom Line No, I would not recommend to a friend
