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.

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!

Comfortable toe box and provides the right amount of coverage for protecting feet while running. Also very light. I wish they would continue this shoe but with more colors.
