Wonderful shoes

The heal drop works so well for me and these are the only shoes that let me walk and do not cause pain around my artificial knees. This is my 4th pair of this shoe and I had been super worried when they were discontinued. I purchased a new pair as soon as they were issued. My only complaint is th...

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...

Comments about Fli-Lyte 4

As someone with bunions, the wide toe box is a lifesaver. This is my second pair of Topos and I'm happy with both. The only slight con is the length of the shoes seems slightly large (my toes are about an inch away from the top of the shoe) but it's not a major issue.

Comments about Fli-Lyte 4

I use them to walk 3-5 miles a day on trails. After back surgery, the numbness in my right foot caused significant problems and pain when walking. Topo shoes relieve the pain and make walking easy because of the wide toe box and arch support. Just purchased my third pair of Topo shoes. I highly recommend them for complete comfort.

Love the light blue/black color really wish they offered this color in a 0 heal lift shoe. Have had lots of compliments on the color. I really like how it looks. Would love to get some greens or other colors to with the simple black heel. I use these shoes for coaching as well as taking fitness classes.

After injuring my toe and rubbing blisters from wearing shoes that were a bit too narrow, these arrived and made everything better. I wear them with toe socks, and the combination is a game changer. No more foot pain!

I found these by accident and I'm so glad I did! Roomy toe box, super stable and neutral! I have a pair for work - I walk around 6 miles a day at work and am on my feet for 10 hours a day. I also have a pair I use for running. They fit my orthotics well and my unresolved foot pain is gone with these shoes and my orthotics! Love them!

I average 50-62 miles per week city walking pavement, asphalt and concrete. 2nd week using these. Love the fit, even better than the previous Fli-Lite 3. These have sturdier soles that hope will last longer. Would love more color options greens and yellows.

Love the feel on the pavement.
