ST-3 Press Feature

Topo Athletic's minimalist shoe is lightweight and ultra-flex

"All others who love that barefoot feel without having pebbles embedded into your foot will appreciate how the ST-3 mimics shoeless freedom."

Product Overview

The ST-3 minimalist road running shoe features a new knit upper mesh pattern with fewer printed overlays. The new blucher style upper offers a snug and secure fit through the midfoot. A 16mm, 0-drop platform is perfect for speedwork, tempo runs, and gym work. The rubber outsole pods are strategically placed to enhance traction and durability where it matters. The ST-3’s collapsible heel allows the shoe to pack flat, making these women's minimalist road running shoes a versatile option for travel.

My new favorite!

I love the minimal nature of the ST-3 and it has just enough cushion for my longer runs (10M +). The toe box feeling is great – I love being able to spread the toes a bit – I've always run in minimal shoes (I prefer it) but after running in these I prefer this shoe for road runs specifically.

a painful experience

I am extremely disappointed in the ST-3 and am returning my shoes. The ST-2 was my favorite shoe of all time! Mine are worn out and there were none left in my size for the last 5 months, so I was eagerly waiting for this new version to come out. The redesign is all wrong with seams placed directl...

Comments about ST-3

I have lots of issues with my feet. I have bunions and unhappy toes. I need shoes with a wide to box. I took the recommendation of another customer and bought these shoes in a 1/2 size larger than usual. They're perfect and are really comfortable so walk in. And most important of all, they don't hurt my feet! I love them and highly recommend.

Bottom Line Yes, I would recommend to a friend

Comments about ST-3

I run about 60 miles a week on roads. These shoes are great in the winter for minimalist runners. I'm used to a lot less padding underfoot but found that I didn't have the leg fatigue I thought I would get. The uppers feel a lot like my barefoot runners - my feet are free to move and land naturally. And in these cold months I'm thankful to have a bit more insulation on my feet. I recommend the ST-3 for anyone who prefers zero drop natural movement. They go the distance!

Bottom Line Yes, I would recommend to a friend

I've been looking for tennis shoes that reduce back stress from standing since my Kelly Ripa (Ryka) shoes wore out. These are great! No backaches!

On my feet all day as a physical therapist, and I have a hard time finding shoes that fit my size 9 wide, kinda flat foot. These work perfectly, and recommended the running shoe to a client.
