Ultraventure Trail Running Shoe
Whether your adventures involve big mountain ultra races or quick after-work trail runs, the Topo Athletic Ultraventure Trail Running Shoe will be a steady go-to for those looking for added support, comfort, and on-trail performance. When you need grip on steep trails, wet rock, and quick switchbacks the Vibram XS Trek oustole is there to give you trusted traction in any conditions, and even features a spaced-out lug design that sheds mud and snow easily while still maintaining the performance you need to cover ground fast.
The Ultraventure provides a little more cushioning than most Topo shoes thanks to its triple-density EVA midsole, which uses an innovative design that balances responsive cushioning, soft protection on downhills, and a stable transition throughout your gait. The result is a solid all-around ride that makes it easy to cruise over technical terrain, and thanks to the Ultraventure's abrasion-resistant mesh upper and self-draining system, you'll be ready for anything the trail can throw at you.

After only 5 trail runs...
- I've used it several times
- True to size
- Size Bought
- 5` 5"
- 115 lbs
After only 5 trail runs (about 5-7 miles) the soles started to delaminate. You can see the shoes look almost brand new. My last run was in a bit of mud and some puddles, perhaps the water did something to the glue? I loved the fact that these had vibram soles. I also liked the way they fit and felt, cushy but still having some trail sensitivity. But I’ve never had a pair of trail shoes with this problem. I contacted BC and they want to issue a store credit instead of a refund, which means I need to wait prior to ordering a suitable replacement. Not sure I’ll be purchasing any of my shoes from BC with that return policy. This is obviously a huge QC problem with Topo but since BC is a vendor they should stand by the product and issue appropriate refunds. I'd like to add to this review that upon contacting my guru of this issue, backcountry quickly refunded the amount upon putting the return in a UPS box. AND expedited the new pair of running shoes that I ordered! Very pleased!

What a shame.
- I've used it several times
These are some of the most comfortable and supportive trail shoes that I've worn. The Vibram soles have never disappointed me on rocky and/or wet surfaces. However, after wearing these a total of 8 times they have developed holes around the ankles on both shoes. For the price point, I would expect these to last quite a while longer. To make matters worse, Backcountry is refusing to give me a refund because it has been more than 30 days. I received them Aug 8 and contacted Backcountry Sep 20. Most of their items are esoteric and can't be adequately used in 30 days to determine if they're good quality or not. Notice how little wear is on the insoles (photo attached). This will be my last purchase from Backcountry until they update their customer service policies.

Great trail shoes
I have a wide foot so I love the wide toe box and they have great traction and support. Plenty of cushion as well for long runs. No more sore heels or sore feet from rocks.

Great shoes for wider feet.
- I've used it once or twice and have initial impressions
Comfortable out of the box. I typically have issues with rubbing in the heal/ankle area, but these felt fine prior to breaking them in. Plenty of room for those with wider feet.

Thought I'd love them
- I've put it through the wringer
I keep trying to LOVE these shoes. They are heavier than the Ultrafly. They are wider than the Ultra Fly and the Hydroventure. Size for size, I am constantly stopping to tighten the lacing... and even then I am always feeling heal pain whereas in the other two models by Topo, I've loved every mile. I'm still struggling with wondering if I need a different arch support or should just switch to a different shoe. Have had them for 3 months, alternate with other shoes, so it's become clear that the pain is generated mostly from these shoes. I just want to like them. ARGH! :) LOVE the Ultrafly and the Hydroventure, but they wear too fast. I expect a good shoe that cost over $120 to last a good 6 months to a year. In both cases, the wear is greater than I expect.

Met all my needs and then some.
I have a wide forefoot, a high arch, and a narrow heel. This makes finding a shoe that works for 50+ miles of rugged trails very difficult to find. After trying just about every shoe on the market, a friend recommended Topo. I was more than pleasantly surprised to have the shoe 1) fit like a glove, and 2) provide enough cushion that I donât have to change shoes at that 50 mile mark. The rubber and aggressive lugs have been great on every condition I can throw at them in the Wyoming backcountry. Iâve been pro-Topo ever since and even joined their Ambassador team so that I can help spread the Topo love to others on their journey to find a shoe soulmate. My only complaint with the Ultraventures is that they donât come in bright colors.

SUPER wide toe box - love!
- I've put it through the wringer
I was in the market for a shoe with a wide toe box but that was not zero drop. I had been battling plantar and heal pain for almost a year. I tried so many different brands and decided to give Topos a shot. I haven't looked back. Superb cushioning, amazing traction and that super wide toe box has done wonders for my running and my foot. My foot pain has disappeared. I am a Topo Ambassador but I became one because I fell in love with the shoes so much. This review is all my own opinion.
