Topo Ath­letic Ul­traFly

Canadian Running - - Gear -

$180; Men’s 286 g (10.1 oz.), Women’s 244 g (8.6 oz.); Drop ra­tio: 5 mm The new­est shoe from the for­mer CEO of Vi­bram A stiff chunk of EVA ma­te­rial on the me­dial side for some sup­port. The Ul­traFly is tech­ni­cally a sta­bil­ity shoe, but it works well for neu­tral run­ners as well. Pre­vi­ous Topo shoes have been pretty firm, but the Ul­traFly’s thick mid­sole layer of­fers bounce and cush­ion­ing. The up­per feels a bit more like a trail shoe than a road trainer, but our testers re­ally liked how re­silient it felt. The Ul­traFly is rugged and made with sturdy ma­te­ri­als and should out­last many shoes on the mar­ket to­day. The nicest as­pect of the Topo line is the roomy toe box, which al­lows for wider feet and more toe splay. A tough ev­ery­day trainer for those look­ing for some­thing that’s go­ing to go the ex­tra mile.
