Product Overview

Ultraventure was designed with features inspired by our elite trail and ultrarunners. An aggressive Vibram® XS Trek outsole provides traction, durability, and protection on technical trails, while the 3 piece, multi-density EVA midsole offers light stability through the gait cycle.  A 30/25mm stack height (5mm drop) delivers a plush and protective ride. The fully gusseted tongue of these ultra trail running shoes and an abrasion-resistant engineered mesh upper are optimized for breathability and strength, and feature drainage “gills” for water release and quick drying. Ultraventure also features our uniquely fitted gaiter attachment, making it fully compatible with our stretch nylon Topo gaiter (optional and sold separately).

FINALLY a running shoe that lasts

Rated 5 out of 5 stars

I've used several other "major" brand shoes and every single time they fall short. I hit like 200, 250 miles on those other shoes and I feel every time rock on my runs. I decided to try these out because I swear by anything with Vibram soles. I just rolled over 500 miles on my last run. The soles don't show any sign of wearing through like other shoes i've used did at 200 miles. I'm probably hitting the end of the cushion at this point, I do feel rocks now! GREAT SHOES! ORDERING AGAIN!

Bottom Line Yes, I would recommend to a friend

Comments about Ultraventure

59 yr old hiker. I climb Mt Whitney and hike Rim to Rim every year. Started to get a bunion and some arthritis in my big toe. Have gone through so many shoes and struggle with blisters and sore, aching feet... These shoes are incredibly comfortable and accommodate my wider forefoot while still cuddling my heel. Have been on rocky terrain and feel so good and stable. Will buy multiple pairs in case y'all change things up!

Bottom Line Yes, I would recommend to a friend

Best Ever

I hope that Topo will always make this shoe as for me it has been the best yet. I went from Altra Timps and Altra Torin to this shoe. I spent a pretty penny on ON shoes, too, and they ended up just being 'go to town' shoe as they were not great for running. I bought the Topo Terraventure after I put quite a few miles on the Ultraventure. And while it is a good shoe, the Ultraventure suits me better. I have to run on pavement or cement for about two miles before I can hit the trail or dirt. This shoe has taken a beating from me and never failed me. I have to be careful as some shoes really aggravate my lower back. The Altra drop is one that makes my back hurt. Also, on occasion I deal with slight plantar pain, not from running, but from a summer of flip flops and barefoot. I have never had problems with this shoe. Also, my toes do not feel cramped. I run anywhere from 20 to 30 miles a week and rarely anything shorter than 7 miles. So please Topo, keep this one around.

Comments about Ultraventure

Two foot surgeries and with Covid my feet aren't getting a break by swimming every other day. 5 miles a day, every day was becoming problematic. I have two other pairs of Topos with different drops but not the same cushioning as the Ultraventure. These have solved my issues. My feet have seen allot of action over the years and I will be purchasing again. First bought Topos because they are great for my spine.

Best Shoe I have Found So Far

Size: I am a solid 8.5 in all shoes but the Topo shoes I size up .5 size. Fit: I just switched to Topo after wearing Altras and Hokas the past couple years. My feet slide around a lot in Altras but Topos fit like a glove. Sturdiness/Quality: I have put 250 miles on them in the last month with no problems. Just ran a very technical 100k in Idaho and they were amazing. I have Morton's Neuromas in both feet, and had trouble finding a shoe that fit and didn't hurt. These are it!! So happy

Bottom Line Yes, I would recommend to a friend

Great support and toe box is perfect. I suffered an IT Band injury (too much hula hooping!) and purchased these shoes to support me as I rehabbed. I do 2-3 mile walks up hills and down in the neighborhood to rehab and these replaced my running sneakers, which I donated. They improved my gait and gave me the support I needed. The color is a bit dark for me but it works and I may purchase the lighter version since I like the orthopedic support and toe box. I don't run but walk bristly. The only quibbles I have is that it is made in China; however, it is made very well. Cheers!

Disclaimer - I am not a runner. I needed a quality shoe with great support and a wide toe box to alleviate my foot pain due to a neuroma, which was causing daily pain. From the minute I tried these on, my foot felt better. I wear these everyday, from light hikes to my home elliptical. The support is great, the fit is perfect, and the shoe is lightweight and cute enough to wear with anything. These are super comfortable with perfect support. I would recommend!
