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...

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.

Bottom Line Yes, I would recommend to a friend

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.

Comments about Phantom 2

These shoes are amazingly comfortable. The arch is very supportive and the sole is firm without being stiff. The material around the back of ankle is cushioned well but does not rub or aggravate that area like some shoes do. I have been a On-Cloud loyalist for years - no longer the case - It was time to move on, I wanted to try something new, this is now my go to shoe. Excellent choice. * For fitting reference: my Clouds are 7.5, Taos shoes are 37, Birkenstock's are also 37 - hope that helped...

The roomy toe box and 5mm drop has saved my ability to run. After recovering from a foot injury, I found I couldn't wear shoes with normal-width toe boxes, but feared making the switch to zero drop shoes as I am injury prone. I will be purchasing another pair as these have become my everyday go-to shoes, walking shoes, and running shoes!

Comments about Phantom 2

I have extremely wide feet and because of that I have precisely two options of shoes I can wear. On earth. It's frustrating. These are one of them - mostly because there isn't any solid structure across the toe box. (every other pair of topos I tried did and I returned most of them.) I wish these came in a trail version. Having said that, they are great, by far the best road shoes I have ever owned. However i did have to size up - I'm a 7.5 normally and got these in an 8.5,

Returned a 9 in exchange for a 9.5. Now a great fit.

Comments about Phantom 2

These fit a lot like my Ultrafly shoes, just with more cushioning. I usually wear these on my long runs. While I like the sole on some of the other Topo shows, like the cyclone, for me the uppers on this Phantom and on the Ultrafly are really the only shows I can run in for long distances without blisters. This shoe wasn't really marketed as a stability shoe, but it has a heel counter that looks similar to the Ultrafly, and it feels much more stable for me (someone with a lot of over pronation on one side) than most shoes.

Bottom Line Yes, I would recommend to a friend
