Product Overview

Hydroventure 2 is an exciting update to the award-winning original. It features our proprietary single-layer eVent® breathable/waterproof upper, a fully gusseted tongue, forefoot rock plate, 2-density injected EVA midsole, and new Vibram® Megagrip outsole. A 3mm drop, 25mm x 22mm platform means the Hydroventure 2 allows for natural movement while still offering the protection you need on wet, technical trails. The 2-density injected EVA midsole is softer near the foot but more responsive on the bottom. A new Vibram® Megagrip outsole features deeper, more generously spaced lugs for ”toothier” traction in wet, muddy conditions. Our Hydroventure 2 women's waterproof trail running shoes now have a gaiter attachment for the Topo gaiter (sold separately) and 2 lace colors for multiple looks.

I love these shoes. I have some knee problems and the relatively flat rise is extremely comfortable. The sole grips well and my feet have remained dry. Definitely order a half size larger than you usually wear.

Comfy. Size up.

I love this shoe and highly recommend it. The wide toe box is exceptionally comfy and the support and cushion is spot on, for trail running. It's not enough for the road, but it's also not meant for the road.

It's very waterproof and I think the breathability is good, but I do live in a dryer climate. So, I will test it up in Vancouver BC, in a few weeks and have a better grasp on that.
The only issue for me is the sizing. I'm am normally a size 9.0 and got a 9.5 in this style. The 9.0 does fit me in other Topo styles, just not this one. And, my right foot is just a tad bigger, so the 9.5 isn't quite perfect for that foot.

So, I do recommend going up at least 1/2 a size.

Great shoe, small problem with rubs on top of toes

by

I was really surprised how much I like these shoes. I normally would not order shoes online without trying them on first because I often have a hard time getting shoes that fit right. These fit great. And it was well worth the extra few dollars to get the waterproof trail shoes, because after 8 miles on trails in the rain, my feet were still dry. Only small problem is because what I suspect is the wider toe area and material to make it waterproof is I started to get rubs on the top knuckle area of my toes where the fabric folds when I move. Hopefully this can be managed with being careful with what socks I wear on longer runs.
