Roomy with just the right about of cushion

I've been a committed Altras customer for 3 years now but I'm now dealing with calve and foot stuff (probably from Pandemic Overtraining). My PT recommended Topos and I am happy with this Fly-Lyte. The 3mm drop seems to be enough to make a difference. Although I am generally out of shape from a raci...

Love the shoe, hate the new lacing system

After over a decade of serious running, my Fly-Lite 3s were in my top 3 of favorite shoes, ever. Version 4 has been a let-down so far. The toe-box is slightly narrower and my third and forth toe rub against the shoe fabric (I bought the same size as my 3s). I HATE the new lacing system. It doesn...

PureFlow replacement?

Submitted

By Lucy

From CA

I have been searching for a replacement fro my Brooks PureFlows for years; I only have one run on the Fli-Lyte 4, but they are the closest I've found so far. I previously tried the Phantom 2, but that was too cushioned for me for running. Those have become my 12 hour shift work shoes. The Fli Lyte 4 fits well and has the perfect amount of cushioning for me.

Bottom Line Yes, I would recommend to a friend

Comments about Fli-Lyte 4

I'm an active 55 year old woman and live in these shoes. Wear them for walking, aerobics, strength, and spin classes, and pickleball. They provide excellent stability that has eliminated knee and hip pain I often experienced with other shoes. Have recommended them to others who have had similar results.

This is the first time I bought Topos and I am very satisfied. I have a narrow heal, high arches and a fairly wide front foot. They fit like a dream and provide good arch support.

Topos are now the only running shoe I will wear. Love both your road and trail shoes. This is the second time I've purchased the Fli-Lyte 4, they are the perfect balance of light and cushioned and the zero drop has transformed my running.

Why aren't all athletic shoes made like this?

Comments about Fli-Lyte 4

I ordered a size 9 originally because I have a pair of the Trail Runners in a 9 and that's my normal size. The Fli-Lyte 4 toe box is a slightly different shape, so these were just a bit too small. I ordered a 9.5, and that was perfect. I love topo athletic!

I love these shoes for the toe room - also because they make size 10.5. They are the only shoes I wear anymore- regular sneakers for walking and the trail shoes for hiking.

Good for wide feet

By Beth

From Colorado

I usually buy Brooks, but decided to try Topo this time. Even though these are not wide width, the roomy toe box somewhat makes up for that. I've found them to be comfortable for running as well as daily workouts/weight lifting. I love how light they are. They also seem to have decent support for pronators.

Bottom Line Yes, I would recommend to a friend
