Product Overview

In the new Fli-Lyte 3, we eliminated almost all printed overlays to make it lighter and more breathable using a new engineered mesh upper to secure the foot over the platform. The addition of our 5mm anti-microbial Ortholite® footbed gives the shoe a softer ride without sacrificing midsole response. A 23mm X 20mm stack height offers cushioning without losing flexibility and ground feel for a more natural running experience.

This is my 6th pair of Topos. I bought my usual size of 9. They fit perfect. I’m in love with them straight out of the box. I can’t wait to wear them tomorrow. I would buy this shoe in several more colors but the black pair with the white sole and no black grip doesn’t appeal to me. I hope the new mesh is more durable. My big toe has busted thru the uppers of every pair I own except for the ST model. This is just a really comfortable and nice looking shoe. Great job!

Once again, Topo hits it out of the park!


I became a Topo ambassador this year because I truly believe in this company and their shoes. I've been running in the Ultrafly 2's and the Ultraventures for a while now but when these came out, I decided to give them a try. For as long as I can remember, I've never been able to run in a neutral shoe or a shoe with less than 4-5mm drop due to previous history of injuries. But I've gotten a lot stronger in the year or so that I've been in Topos so I thought I would give them a go. As the Ultrafly's are not a heavy stability shoe and a 5mm drop, I was hoping it wouldn't be a shock to my foot. I was not disappointed. Super lightweight, just the right amount of cushion while still allowing me to really connect with the road. And of course, their signature wide toebox allowing my foot to spread out while staying snug in the heel so there is no slippage. They will be a regular in my rotation.

Inconsistent sizing!


I really wanted to love this shoe as much as I love my other three pairs of Topo running shoes, however I had to return them today. The size 12 is a quarter to half size smaller than my other size 12's. What happened? I even lined up my Magnifly2's and Ultrafly2's to visually gauge the difference and these Fli-lyte's were definitely smaller. If inconsistent sizing continues to be an issue I will have to abandon this brand, which I really don't want to do and run exclusively in Altras. Everything else about the shoe was fantastic but I cannot have my toes bumping up against the top of the shoe, especially when I know how wonderful the other styles feel. I hope this issue is addressed and corrected. If so, I'll be back.

*Topo note: Early feedback from customers (including this reviewer) has been that the new Fli-Lyte 3 may run 1/4 size shorter than our other models. Not all customers have experienced this feeling but if you are in-between sizes we would suggest keeping this in mind when ordering.*

Narrower than UltraFly!


I love the UltraFly and was excited to try something different. Unfortunately, these are shorter and, more significantly, narrower! I have a small bunion on one foot and I can not wear this shoe. I'm bummed! I too have a hole in my UltraFly material and I've never worn out a pair of shoes in my life! Love Topo Athletic but there are some issues that need to be addressed.

Really comfortable!


These shoes are really comfortable! I actually feel my feet are supported with a soft cushion or pillow underneath! They are so light, supporting, and extremely comfortable! I am looking forward to ordering another pair soon!

Just to note: I had no issue with the sizing or the shoe feeling short! This wasn't an issue!
