Zephyr Press Feature

Zip Along In Comfort!

Jeff, Sam & Hope: "Upper is breathable, toe box is top notch, midsole is plush without being mushy, relatively lightweight for how much shoe there is."

Product Overview

Run like the wind with Zephyr. An elastomer stability plate runs inside the midsole of these tempo running shoes, helping stabilize the forefoot and aid propulsion during plantar flexion. A ZipFoam™ core offers more rebound and long-term resilience than traditional EVA. A lightweight, breathable mesh upper with printed overlays secures the foot over the platform of these stabilizing running shoes. Try out these 5mm drop tempo run shoes today!

Comments about Zephyr

I like a firm shoe with solid footing and no roll. I love these shoes. I ran a marthon with them and got about 400-500 miles out of my first pair. On my second pair. Would love other color options like grey or black though. I do not like the current colors

Bottom Line Yes, I would recommend to a friend

Using these for runs up to 10km so far but feel like they'll handle much longer runs without an issue. Took a little adjustment on my first run to get my stride right but after first few miles they feel great. Good energy return, legs feel great afterwards .

Bottom Line Yes, I would recommend to a friend

long time Topo wearer and this is my favorite shoe so far

I usually buy Topo trail runners & have always been satisfied. Branched out recently to get a pair of the ST-3s (zero drop) which are perfect for ERG workouts but don't have quite the cushioning for outside. Thought I'd try a road shoe with more cushioning and the Zephyrs are great. These feel like the best fitting Topo shoe I've worn -- no movement on my narrow heels. And they grip better on the road than trail runners (as expected).

Bottom Line Yes, I would recommend to a friend

Comments about Zephyr

I bought these for my dad who regularly sizes up to find shoes wide enough... well he loves these! He was happy to find something wide enough without being too long, and quite surprised at how light they are! He says they are significantly lighter than his everyday Skechers styles that he has lived in for the past few decades. I think I have a convert!

Best Road Shoe I've Ever Run In

Rated 5 out of 5 stars

Submitted

From the first run I knew these shoes were going to be perfect for me. I've used 2E width road shoes in the past & these fit me perfectly. I ran a 50k run on the second run in these shoes with not a single blister or issue. Somehow the Zephyr manage to be great for tempo but also excellent for long distance. I ran my first 70km road run in these & they performed perfectly. I hit the 600km mark in them after three months and they're still holding strong. Will absolutely be buying these again.

Faster Than Blue Blazes in Them!

Wow! That was my first impression the first time I wore my Zephyrs! And I still love them. I've had them since April and they've helped me achieve a new PR in my 10k and mile distances. They are comfortable and light and the plate gives them that snap that helps me in my speed work and faster, shorter runs. I highly recommend the Zephyr!
