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.

Comments about MT-3
I love these! My first pair was the hydroventure (loved), then hydroventure 2 (fit nicely but noisy), and now trying these. Right out of the box, they fit perfectly, comfy, flexible yet supportive, they just feel perfect! I do miss the waterproofing from the hydroventures, but I might try a topical application. I use these for everyday use: working inside on tile floors and stairs, playing with my kid on gravel, grass, concrete, anything. I haven't hadbthe opportunity to do any hiking or real running, but I am suspecting a glowing performance.
Typically, my distances are on the shorter side (about 8-10k max), and I usually run on road/asphalt but am trying to prepare for an OCR so needed something that's also great for trails. The customer service team made this recommendation to me after I shared this use case and what shoes I used previously. I'm not sure I would have picked these out myself, but I'm actually so very happy with their recommendation! These shoes are sturdy without feeling bulky. I enjoy the firmer feel to them. I was little worried about adjusting to a lower drop, but I haven't noticed much of a difference at all. I also wasn't a huge fan of the coral color at first as I prefer darker tones, but how it blends with the blue and grey has grown on me. These shoes are also great for neighborhood walks with my dog. Big fan!
I purchased these for my 8 year old (she has a good size foot). She absolutely loves them as do I because they let her toes splay naturally something I am passionate about for their growing bodies and feet. She's had zero issues with them and she wears them running and walking. A lot of others brands she's had to "break in" to feel comfortable. Not these - she loved these right out of the box! Thank you! (I am Topo Athletic ambassador).
Comments about MT-3
I use my TOPOS for road running and my boot camp workouts.
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 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!
Overall a good fit. I usually wear 10-10.5 in running shoes, but these fit well in size 11. In this size, my toes do not hit any of the harder parts of the upper. Overall a good shoe, but would like to see a lighter shoe with less cushion and more flexibility.
Comments about MT-3
I use these for trail running. I like that they are light and minimal. They don't have any cushion but that doesn't bother me. I just wish they were waterproof like the hydroventures that I had. They do slide a little on wet surfaces.
I've been a loyal Topo consumer for three years now, typically purchasing about 3-4 pair a year. My feet are finicky. But the problem I'm having with topo is the inconsistency. I purchased three pair of m-2's last year. Needed one more pair.... the fourth pair (same year and model purchased at a different time) killed my feet. They just weren't made the same- I think it might be a slight variation in the arch. This m-3 has the same issue. I can wear them for short periods, but not my typical 15,000 step day.
