Our View - Topo Ultraventure Men:
New to the Topo range the Ultraventure has been designed to meet the needs of ultra distance runners who are looking for extra cushioning alongside the Topo trademarks of low drop and wider toebox which allow a more natural foot motion.
The aggressive Vibram XS Trek outsole provides excellent traction on mixed terrain as well as being highly durable meaning the shoes will last many, many miles.
Central to the Ultraventure is the maximal cushioning 3 piece, multi-density EVA midsole that offers light stability through the gait cycle as well as the 30/25mm stack height (5mm drop) delivering a plush and protective ride and excellent impact protection for long duration training and racing.
The fully gusseted tongue and an abrasion-resistant mesh upper provide excellent breathability and durability and feature Topos new drainage “gills” for water release and quick drying to keep your feet drier and the shoes lighter.
Finally, the Ultraventure 2 is compatible with the Topo gaiter (optional and sold separately) which can be securely attached using the integrated gaiter attachments.
If you are looking for an ultra running shoe that is designed to meet the demands of long distance running in terms of impact protection, but also with a wider fit that allows for the inevitable foot swell that will occur then the new Ultraventure is well worth a look.
