A 30mm x 25mm stack height and 5mm drop makes the new Phantom Topo’s most cushioned road running shoe. Strategically placed rubber adds traction and durability where needed; Zipfoam™, a proprietary new midsole compound that delivers more cushioning and long-term resilience than traditional EVA. A breathable engineered mesh upper with lightly printed overlays and an external TPU heel counter help keep the runner secure over the platform.
Proprietary midsole compound which is springier than EVA and offers more rebound over the life of the shoe.
Anatomical toe box allows toes to spread naturally and comfortably.
For a '2nd Skin' fit and feel.
Our highest available drop allows you to access natural running with more under-heel cushioning.

I am a TOPO Ambassador but the reason I am is because they are great shoes. The Phantom is another great addition to my training gear. It is a very cushioned shoe. I like that for longer training runs. It would not be my go to for racing but is a great training shoe. As usual it has the roomy toe box and natural fit. I have not had any issues with rubbing or blisters. I wore them on a fairly long run straight out of the box and had no problems with the way the fit.
Really enjoying this shoe. The cushion on it super soft I don't feel the pavement or the rocks when I run on fire roads. The sizing is comparable. I also wear the Ultraventure trail shoes and the sizing on this is the same. I also really dig the colors. Excited to run more miles in these! I am a Topo Athletic Ambassador but this review is my own opinion.

I'd been running in the Ultrafly 2s and liked them as well but was excited that Topo was coming out with a more cushioned shoe and purchased my Phantoms as soon as they were available. I love them. They are so comfortable (a friend who is trying Topos for the first time and got the Phantoms says that she feels like she is walking on clouds) and have felt great on every run so far.
One more thing that I love about Topos in general is that I have never gotten a blister from any pair that I've had. I have always had to tape my heals for the first couple of weeks wearing a new pair of running shoes (regardless of brand) in order to prevent my heals from blistering. With my first pair of Tops I decided to try not taping and got no blisters. I have yet to get a blister with the various pairs that I've had over the years.
This shoes was exactly what I was looking for. I wanted a shoe, with a roomy toe box, some cushion, and a lower heal toe drop. This shoe checked everything off the list!
