Product Overview

Runventure 2 is a lightly cushioned and responsive, 0-drop trail runner. It uses the same high performance rubber sole found on the Terraventure, combined with a slightly thinner EVA midsole. Runventure 2 uses a relaxed elastane heel for a more natural feel. Runventure 2 also features a uniquely designed gaiter attachment to help keep out dirt and debris. Gaiters are optional and may be purchased separately.

Best Trail Shoe


I originally fell in love with the first generation Runventure and was sad to see it pulled. Now I get why, though! The second generation has a better outsole/lug (equivalent to the Terraventure) and a slightly more narrow toe box than other Topo Athletic trail shoes, making it great for those that like a little more hug to their toe box. As a Seattle native, this is my go-to on rainy days because it dries so fast that I know it'll be ready for tomorrow's run. The gaiter attachment is a really great and unique feature, since it attaches directly to the shoe to keep rocks and debris out. I'm an ambassador for Topo Athletic, and this is by far one of my favorite changes they have made to a shoe over the years. I'm not normally crazy about zero-drop shoes but The Runventure 2 has my sole.

Would definitely buy again


I have been running off road in the Runventure 2 for about 3 months. The zero drop and wide toe box (I can easily spread my toes) were big factors in my decision to buy these shoes and I am pleased with both features. The Runventure 2 does not have a lot of cushion but I prefer the better road feel they provide. They have plenty of protection on rocky terrain and the treads provide good traction. I plan to stay with this shoe for trail running.

Fits like a glove


"It's like you're running naked, but with clothes on." This is how I would describe the fit of this shoe. The Runventure 2 is the most lighweight and airy shoe I've ever worn, and it fits like a glove due to the relaxed elastane heel. What I love most about this shoe is the roomy toe box. It has minimal cushioning which allows you to feel the ground underneath you. I feel like it's just enough cushioning to where I can feel some rocks, but the rockplate provides protection. I am a Topo Athletic Ambassador.
