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!!!!
