Best trail runner on the market
I've used this shoe extensively for on-trail and off-trail backpacking. This is the best trail runner I've ever used. It's stable and low to the ground, but has enough cushioning for long days. It provides sufficient rock protection but doesn't feel dead. The wide toebox gives my toes room to spread. And my heel and midfoot feel locked in, meaning the shoe does well on off-camber terrain. Topo nailed the stackup and fit of this shoe.
I'm on my 2nd pair, and by around 300 miles, the midsole foam compresses quite a bit. The rest of the shoe could probably make it to 500 miles or longer. So my only wish would be for a more resilient midsole foam.
Well Balanced. Excellent Mixed Terrain Shoe
Well Balanced and very comfortable. Not too minimal, not overbuilt. Protective and secure while feeling comfortable and natural. Excellent traction. Very light and nimble yet protective on hilly technical trails (NE rocks and roots) but also fast and responsive when the trail mellows out (buffed out single track/ bridle paths). Handles short fast runs as well as long days over varied terrain. Excellent all arounder. My new favorite shoe.
Not the most breathable upper. If changing the upper material meant changing anything else about the ride/performance of the shoe Id rather keep it like it is.
Great fit and everything Topo has delivered previously
Flexibility, with the rubberized upper meeting the sole, is less than the original Runventures
