Women's | Trail
The all-new MT-3 features a lightweight rip-stop mesh upper with printed overlays and midfoot drainage ports for water release and quick drying. The platform on this women's mesh running shoe gets an upgrade, using the same midsole and outsole platform offered on the original Terraventure along with a 5mm anti-microbial Ortholite® footbed. With no rockplate, the MT-3 remains light and versatile, with improved durability and great trail/road hybrid performance.

Love Them For What They Are
I love these shoes for what they are. They are light, flexible and great for easy trails, dirt roads, and paved roads. I typically wear a size 8, but based on other reveiws I ordered an 8.5 and they fit perfectly. The orange is loud and proud!
Solid, Go-to Shoe
I have loved my MT-3s. I have run in Brooks, ON, Mizuno, Altra, Salomon, Saucony, and New Balance over the years, but there is something special about these Topos. I run rural roadsides, trails, and forest service paths in the northern upper midwest and also contend with ice and snow for much of the year. These shoes have handled it all and feel great for short runs as well as long ones. Thank you!
Sizing smaller compared to MT2
MT2 are my favorite shoe, but I always thought they could use a little more cushion. I went through four pairs. I was excited to see the MT3 has more cushioning. These shoes ended up hurting my feet. Ordered the same size I normal do and they were too small and too tight. I switch between road and trail and used these as my road shoes. I did try them out on the trail once. I gave these shoes a try for a month and on a long run got a black toe nail which doesn't happen for me unless I stub my toe. The orange color is more orange/red which I wasn't a fan of. If the shoes fit better I think they would have been great because the cushioning was nice. I already go up half a size and I don't think going up another half is going to solve the problem of being too narrow. I'll still gladly try a newer version of this shoe in the future if Topo has one. Glad I was able to return the shoes.
Love, love, love them! As a former MT-2 wearer, I was super excited when these came out. My runs have changed recently to be more gravel based than road so was looking for a more rugged shoe to handle the terrain. These more than fit the bill. So happy with this purchase! As an ambassador in can't thank Topo enough for making shoes to meet all my needs.
I'm a little confused and disappointed by the changes from the MT-2. The previous model was lightweight, flexible, and just enough cushion for short to marathon/50k distances. They made a great racer for faster-paced runs on not-super-technical terrain.
This new model is significantly heavier and stiffer in the sole, and the cushioning that's there is quite firm. It seems they've lost all the best aspects of the MT-2, and turned this into a low-end, run-of-the-mill trail shoe, without the low-end price point!
The classic Topo fit in the upper is still there, which is the only reason I didn't give it only 1 star.
Great hybrid trail shoe
I am really loving these straight out of the box! I am new to Topo but I am glad I discovered this brand through online YouTube reviews. I needed a shoe with a wide toe box, mid-level cushioning, and that could easily transition between trail running, road running, and hiking. This seems to be pretty perfect for that. I love the bright orange-red color too. I am looking forward to wearing this in the Grand Canyon this fall!. I liked them so much I bought my husband a pair!
Super comfortable, nice cushioning with low drop - highly recommend for pavement, service roads and trails - great choice for transition running across different substrates!
Not an improvement of the MT-2!
by Carol B
I ordered a pair of these shoes expecting them to be an upgrade to the MT-2 that I own. Not so- they have changed the shoelace configuration that is not good, and the place inside the shoe where the tongue attaches to the top is now bulky and irritating. I had to send them back. Now I'm trying to buy other MT-2 shoes before they disappear!!!!!
