Sturdy trail runner - the rock plate needs improvement

I keep both Altra and Topo shoes in stock - I run trails on gnarly, rocky, technical mountain bike trails in Northwest Arkansas. These are stiffer than the Ultraventure - they feel like they take a little breaking in by comparison, but not as stiff out of the box as the Mountain Racer. I was excited...

Really wanted to like but faulty soles

I really looked forward to getting these shoes. The fit was great and they were really comfy. I especially liked the vibram sole, that's mainly why I wanted them. Unfortunately after wearing them only 3x and under 20 mi, the vibram separated from the sole of the shoe. Not just in one spot, totally c...

Use these for trail running. Love the wide toe box. Reminds me of the altras but has a drop which is what I wanted.

I love my topos and I recommend them to almost every customer that comes into my work. They are by far the most comfortable shoes I have ever worn. I wear them to work, when I go running, and general day-to-day. The vibram outsole has amazing traction. I plan to continue purchasing this shoe.

Comments about Ultraventure Pro

I use my Topo's for dog walking on gravel roads in PNW. I also go hiking here with lots of wet slippery roots. I just love these sneakers so much that I truly can't wait to get another pair. I was skeptical about fit and for me they seem very true to size. I love the natural feel they have wide toe box and snugger on the heal. Thanks Topo for making a truly wonderful shoe. I think I have found my new favorite brand.

Best walking shoe I've ever owned!

Comments about Ultraventure Pro

I bought these wonderful shoes on the basis of a strong Wirecutter review, in preparation for AIDS Walk Philly (I'm a physician). They are so supportive and light that I wear them on my daily 1.5 mile walk to work and most weekend errands. For city sidewalks or country scrambles, these are the best walking shoes I've ever owned. Worth every penny!

True Topo Fit

Rated 5 out of 5 stars

Submitted

By Lois

From Pasadena, CA

I love this shoe. I have never hiked this comfortably in low-profile before. It has that one-of-a-kind Topo-fit, narrow heel, fitted mid-foot and roomy toe box. I ordered size 9, my regular Topo size in running shoes, and the fit was true. My foot was secure AND very comfortable all day long. My only ask is for is sturdier (thicker) shoelaces, but that doesn't take anything away from how wonderful these shoes feel. I tried the Travelventure first, but found the fit to be very different, wider in the heel and tight in the forefoot and toebox. The tops of my toes actually rubbed in the shoe when walking on a flat train, a first for me in a Topo. I highly recommend you give this babies a try.

Superb Traction

Rated 5 out of 5 stars

Submitted

By Laura

From Boston, MA

I took these shoes trail running and hiking and the traction was awesome! The shoes gripped very well on ice, slippery leaves, and rocky trails. The rock plate protected my foot well from the terrain below. I run in a low drop road shoe so I appreciate the low drop design of the Pro, which allows me to maintain continuity in my trail and road shoes. It would be terrific to see the next version of these shoes with a GORE-TEX upper for those cold and snowy New England winter days!

Using for running in snow and wet weather. Comfy right out of the box. Supportive, great protection from wet puddles and ice. Love the fit, sturdy but not too stiff or "clunky" , just right. Love the wode toe box but snug heel. Perfect off weather or hiker.

Hiked 6 miles in the new Ultraventure Pros today and I love them! While I selected "true to size", noting that the fit is a bit larger than the other styles, yet not that much larger I personally would size up. As soon as I put the shoe on I was pleased with the fit - not quite the typical boxy foot bed, yet my forefoot had plenty of room while not slipping out of the shoe. So comfortable on the trails - this will be my new go to for my trail hiking.

Bottom Line Yes, I would recommend to a friend
