Good fit, keep out the water, but clunky for a minimalist runner


I typically run in minimal shoes (Vivobarefoot, Merrell) but needed something that would be warmer and not allow slush/puddles to soak through in cold/wet conditions, and there were no minimal shoe options that fit that bill so these were the best thing I found. They certainly do the job of keeping the water out and I appreciate the roomy toe box, but they would be better if they were zero-drop (3 mm is not much, but I feel the difference) and if the soles were about half as thick and more flexible. Hydroventure Lite, maybe?

The Best!


I am a Topo Ambassador and love the hydroventure. It is by far the lightest and most stable of any trail shoe I have worn. I am an Ultra Runner and have experienced many trail runs! What I also love about this shoe is the rock protection plate and the high traction outsole. I have used these shoes in trails and on beaches! They feel extremely comfortable and handle the demands my feet put on them. The roomy toe box is so incredible. With my feet swelling after 100 miles I do not ever get blisters! The best!!!!

Love 'em!


Got my first pair last year and they are excellent. Be it puddle stomping, mud, volcano rock trails, dry dusty paths, my feet have stayed clean and dry and the stablility and fit are great. I just wish they had more color options :)

I promise these shoes keep your feet dry!


I'm a Topo Ambassador and I can't say enough good things about these shoes! These shoes have kept my feet dry and warm through many snowy runs and muddy hikes and trail runs. I even completely submerged one of my feed in a mud puddle that turned out to be much deeper than I anticipated and my foot STAYED COMPLETELY DRY! My only regret is that I didn't order these shoes sooner! They do run slightly small, although I was able to order my regular size and am very comfortable in them. No blisters and no wet feet!

Best Shoes Evah!


I have over 70 years of experience wearing shoes and these are the most comfortable pair I've ever had. So many things about these shoes are spot on. They are built to fit feet. The tongue is just the right length and doesn't have the unnecessary padding that some other brands have, which means the tongue on these never slips to one side or the other but always stays centered. You don't have to pull the whole shoe open to get your foot in and then cinch the laces tight to get the shoe to fit your foot. The laces stay tied. The best part is the toe box, wide enough for real feet.

Best Shoes Evah! Part 2


I did size up 1/2 size to accommodate a longer second toe and they are perfect. I love the way that rocks are no problem on pavement, gravel or trails-I hardly notice them. I wear these for walking, mountain biking, and CrossFit and they feel great all day. No more heel pain, or toe pain with these. I have two pairs so far and alternate them but I can see more in my future, although after 4 months they don't show any wear at all.
