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.

Comments about Zephyr

I run 60 to 75 miles a week, I tear through shoes and most have a couple things I like about them but fail to check all of the boxes. The Zephyrs do for tempo runs, just ordered the ultrafly 3 for my long runs. Heel and midfoot fit snug without aggravating my arch, toe box allows my toes to splay and land natural without being sloppy. Outsole is responsive while the upper breathable and comfortable. I'll be a long term Topo customer.

Bottom Line Yes, I would recommend to a friend

This is my first pair of Zephyr, but my 6th pair of Topos. I love the overall fit, comfort and especially the toebox. I can't imagine switching to a different brand

Found my forever shoes / Brand

I use these shoes and also the Phantoms for road running. I've tried Brooks, Hokas, Asics , Nike and many other brands the last 10 years. These shoes are amazing! Gives me enough room in the toe box that allow my feet to swell but not hurt because the shoes are too tight. Also just enough stability and minimalistic enough to feel the road and respond. I won't be leaving Topos, they are my new shoe.

Bottom Line Yes, I would recommend to a friend

Outstanding shoe. Fits true to size, nice wide toe box and after long runs legs feel fresh. You can really feel the shoe giving you a push off the ground, cant wait til my next IM.

Great new shoe from Topo!

Just got these and took them out for a short run. Have been really excited to try these coming off an injury and needing a little more stability under my foot and hoping that the addition of the Plantar Flexion Stabilizer would help and am happy to say that this shoe has the perfect amount of cushion and firmness under foot that I was looking for. Have run in a couple other styles of Topo and have a feeling this will quickly become my favorite.

What even is this shoe? I would say this shoe would fit in the speed day category. It's a racing shoe, tempo trainer, and just all around fast shoe. Why is it fast? Be cause you are, you silly goose. Well, that and the addition of the elastomer plate in the midsole. This shoe runs on the firm side, but with the addition of zip foam you can easily wear it comfortably for a marathon. For best results, make sure to stride out a bit and have some good hip flexibility to obtain the full potential of the elastomer plate. I ran in them at the NYC Marathon and got a huge PR. I trained well, but I know this shoe helped a bit. Make sure your legs are ready and strong enough for the speed. Is this the new trend in running shoes? Carbon plate, elastomer plate... what's next? Hopefully more PRs! Let's go!!! 💪🏽 I am a Topo Athletic Ambassador.
