I am on concrete all day so these were suggested to me at our local Feet Fleet store. I purchased a pair. They did not offer all the colors so I went on line to purchase the other colors. Shoe strings need to be longer.

Bottom Line Yes, I would recommend to a friend

I heard about this shoe on the Another Mother Runner podcast. I have not been disappointed! I love the wider toe box, soft cushioning, and snug heel fit. I got the bright red which is a super, fun color! I will order these again 🧚🏻‍♀️

Comments about Phantom

This is my 5th pair of Topos. I was wearing the drop 3 which I love. Moved to a drop 0 but after 100 miles felt continued tightness in my hamstrings on longer runs. Bought the Phantoms and so far, after about 40 miles, still feels good on the legs & feet. More cushion in the Phantom than the drop 3 (I prefer less). But overall I'm happy and my feet welcome the change.

Bottom Line Yes, I would recommend to a friend

From Woodbridge, VA

I don't have wide feet but for my show size I need a wider toe box to avoid numb toes. Zero drop also didn't work for me and caused calf pain. Too much cushion makes me feel like I'm going to twist my ankle. Enter Topo Phantom. They are perfect. Wider toe box equals happy toes while the rest of the shoe fits comfortably and not too loose. The cushion feels great, not too much and not too little. Made it through half marathon training, a very slow half marathon, and still going strong. I have a pair of ultra ventures for trails as well. These will definitely my go to shoe from now on.

Treadmil Favorite

I normally treadmil run in the Ultrafly,but decided to add this to my rotation. What a dreamy runner! I always half-size up due to the extra cushion on the hell and the fact that my feet swell easily. This was a perfect call for this shoe as well. My feet feel bouncy and energetic on the treadmil, and the flat laces are a nice touch for extra snug ties shoes. A little extra cushion goes a long way if placed right, and these are a win in my book.

Comments about Phantom

I usually run about 35 miles a week and I am 49 years old. I have arthritic knees an an old knee injury. I had been running in Hoka Bondi for the cushion and had been happy until I started getting blisters on my big toe and ball of foot. I heard about the Topos having a larger toe box and after trying them, I am very pleased! I haven't had them but a couple of weeks and my longest run in them so far is 16 miles and I was excited to not have one blister, not even a hot spot!! I saw where someone commented about the laces being short, they are short but they are doable. If you lace your shoes differently, you might have issues. I am excited to see how many miles I will be able to get out of them! Thanks Topo!

I'm a long distance runner and need something that will hold up yet feel secure this is it! I hope this type of shoe continues. I am new to topo and I'm glad I have it a try. I have the fli-lyte2 and I enjoy using those but for shorter distance. Give these shoes and run.

I would buy if it had more heel cushion.

I won't give this shoe a bad review even though it didn't work for me. I ran in them a couple of times and even though they were comfortable, they didn't have enough cushion in the heel. (I'm a heel striker when I run) After my second run which was only about a mile and a half, my right hamstring started to ache. The shoe is very well made and very comfortable, however the lower drop didn't work well for me. Would work better for a mid strike runner. I ended up returning them. If you ever design a more padded heel shoe with a slightly higher drop I will definitely try them again.

Bottom Line Yes, I would recommend to a friend
