Product Overview

The Topo Athletic Phantom 2 is built to take on your long runs, daily training, and recovery runs, delivering the comfort of its predecessor, now with even more cushioning and response. The overlay-free engineered mesh upper made of 30% recycled materials keeps the foot cool and comfortable, with reinforced security through the midfoot. With a 3 mm higher stack height, the updated midsole features a ZipFoam™ core for a snappy, yet soft feel underfoot. The external TPU heel counter integrates with the midsole to keep the foot seated over the platform for a secure and stable ride.

The. Shoe.

I am a new convert to Topo. My thanks to Steve at Sneakerama in Worcester MA for recommending them. Over many years I won't even bore you with how many types, styles and brands of shoes I have gone through trying to find "the shoe". I could fund a small army with the money I have spent on shoes t...

Topo seems have changed the fit of their shoes.

Topo Phantom2 are my go to walking shoes. That being said, size 10.5, which has been MY size for a number of years is generally in very short supply. I was finally able to order a pair size 10.5 several weeks ago. When they arrived I was terribly disappointed that the shoes were close to a full size...

Really great shoe!

I absolutely love this shoe! I've exclusively worn Altras for the past 5 years, but with their prices exponentially increasing, the quality going downhill, and getting TERRIBLE plantar fasciitis, I was fed up and decided to try Topos. The heel lock is amazing, the cushion is firm but responsive, the quality is TOP NOTCH, and my plantar fasciitis started getting better almost immediately. I am never looking back.

Bottom Line Yes, I would recommend to a friend

Comments about Phantom 2

This model is best for my needs as I deal with hallucinations rigidus accompanied by osteoarthritis in my big toe joint and plantar fasciitis. They feel really good even without additional orthotics. So far the best and the toe box is wide enough but a little less than the ultra fly 4 that I have.

Bottom Line Yes, I would recommend to a friend

The only shoes that don't hurt me.

I'm a runner with bunions (runions?). I was experiencing big toe joint pain while running in New Balances. My local running shop put me in the Topo Phantom 2, and I've never looked back. This is the most comfortable pair of shoes I've ever run in. I love the low heel-to-toe drop. The insole is supportive and cushy on my arches. The heel feels secure without squeezing my ankle too tightly. The toe box is wide -- wider than Altra. This results in a very roomy forefoot. I can basically play piano with my toes, which I prefer in a foot-shaped shoe. I've tried other brands that make foot-shaped shoes and ended up with foot pain, even after adding some supportive insoles. The Phantom 2 is my perfect shoe. I hope Topo never discontinues nor changes anything about the design. It ain't broke - please DON'T fix it.

Bottom Line Yes, I would recommend to a friend

I love the overall fit of my Topos. One thing I would ask is to please bring back the vibrant colors from a few years ago: fuschia, purple, blue, etc. The color choices of gray, white or Miami Dolphins colors are so limited. Otherwise, keep doing what you're doing!

Bottom Line Yes, I would recommend to a friend

This is my first pair of Topo's and likely won't be my last. I'd honestly never heard of the brand until my sister-in-law took me to a small shoe store in town where she gets her shoes from. The salesman recommended these, and I'm so glad he did. The most comfortable pair of shoes I've ever had. I have tendinitis in both feet and a fallen arch in my right, so my right ankle rolls inward when I walk. Finding comfortable shoes with the right support is near impossible, but these fit my foot like they were tailor-made just for me. With the wide toe box and all the support in the sole, it's like walking barefoot. I can barely feel the shoe it fits so well. The only downside is a tiny one. They run a tad small. I normally wear a 9.5 and these are a 10, but otherwise, it's an absolute perfect fit for my feet.

Love Topos which I've been wearing for 5 years. I switched from Altras because Topos have wider toe box and no Zero drop. Both better for my 71 yo active 9.5 women's feet:)

The roomy toe box and cushioning makes them my favorite shoe. I can go for miles and never think about my feet because they are so comfortable. I searched for a long time and am so happy to find them.
