Ultraventure Trail Running Shoe

When the trail is rough and rocky you'll still have a smooth ride in the Topo Athletic Ultraventure Trail Running Shoe. Designed with lots of cushioning and reliable trail features, this shoe is perfect for anyone looking to add comfort on long runs or just looking for more everyday support. The triple-density EVA midsole uses an innovative design to keep your ride responsive and energized, while providing stability throughout your gait and a softer landing on downhills. You've also got a Vibram XS Trek outsole that gives you reliable grip when you're darting over rocky trails or racing back to the trailhead. The lug pattern on this outsole is designed to shed mud and snow, so you can keep charging on in inclement weather. The Ultraventure's upper is constructed with a tough yet breathable mesh that regulates temperature while resisting abrasions from overgrown trails, and also features a self-draining system that'll dump water from puddles and rainy skies.

  • Cushioned trail runner that'll give you a smooth and supportive ride
  • Triple density midsole ensures comfort and stability on any terrain
  • Vibram outsole provides steady grip as you charge up steep slopes
  • Long-lasting Ortholite footbed offers responsive comfort underfoot
  • Mesh upper is tough and durable without sacrificing breathability
  • Drainage gills keep your shoes from carrying weight when wet
  • Gaiter attachments are compatible with Topo Athletic gaiters
  • Item #TPA0014

I have wider feet and I've tried a ton of shoes over the years. I ran in Books Adrenalines the most, but have run in Hokas and Altras as well. These are my favorite trail shoes. Good cushion, great traction, no blistering on longer runs (which was part of my problem with Hokas in runs over 10 miles). I like the minimal drop instead of zero drop and my Achilles do much better in minimal drop shoes. The tread does seem to wear down a little faster than some others I've run in, but that's a tradeoff I'm ok with for the soft feel.

After searching for quite some time for the ideal trail shoe, I believe I finally found it with Topo Athletic. For me, the Ultraventure fits true-to-size and feels amazing. I've been running in Altra exclusively for some years now, but I seem to wear them out quickly, both in midsole cushioning and upper wear. While these have a 5mm drop instead of the 0mm drop I am accustomed to, I am really liking them. So far they are holding up well and the midsole has a good balance of cushion and responsiveness. As of right now I think I'll be able to get a lot more miles on the trail with them. Sometimes trying something new is scary and doesn't pan out. With these Ultraventures though, I think I've finally found a proper trail shoe that is going to take a pounding and hold up to it. Plus, the traction is killer. The Vibram XS Trek outsole is providing ample grip on varied terrain and conditions (the perks of late Spring). Could I knock it down a notch when it comes to sex-appeal? Yes, but I won't because on the mountain function beats fashion everyday. So I'll happily rock these and be happy when they dress them up on the next iteration.

Seems like a really good shoe, but I never used it - when ordering, trust the US sizing over the EU sizing, otherwise you will find that this shoe runs small. Unfortunately, I could not get my US size at Backcountry, tried the EU size that I would normally wear, didn’t work, bummer.

It's adventure time. These shoes will make you feel like you are wearing clown shoes but you don't mind. Sure they make a squeak and make everyone turn their heads because it sounds like a horse is walking by. But you don't care. You don't care because you are an adventurer, getting lost in the wild is your fantasy, and these shoes will take you there.

Very comfortable and supportive. I have a relatively flat foot and overpronate slightly when running. Shoe works great. Really enjoy the wide toe box that gives a natural feel when running.

Do these have a well-padded tongue for steep technical courses? Also wondering if they flex nicely, do not like Hokas because they are too stiff, can't bend them with my hands when off. Finally, anyone else with a lot of miles on these coming from years of 0 drop like myself? I know it's only 5mm but when you're healthy you hate to change. Any one answer would be much appreciated.
