When I first put on the Topo Ultraventure 2.0 my initial impression was that they were super comfy and cushioned. It was a pleasant surprise to read later that the brand was founded on the principles of common sense, simplicity and comfort. After a few runs in the Ultraventure I would say they have executed these principles really well in the shoe.
So everyone knows that when you get a new pair of shoes, they need to be slowly worn in to ensure you have no problems, right? Maybe start with a few shorter runs? I was a bit cheeky with the Topo Ultraventure’s and my first run was a 45km Sunday long run. I have since continually given them quite a beating, doing all of my long training runs in them. Every time I wear these shoes, they have just felt comfortable and my feet haven't got beaten up at all. The roomy toe box gives my foot more space to spread out, and the Vibram® XS Trek EVO outsole has provided good grip running on the currently very dry, slippery, dusty trails. I haven’t tried the shoe in the wet yet, but have dunked them running through creek crossings and they have dried out ok.
The only bit that catches me out with these shoes is the shorter tongue. Each time I do the laces up, I automatically go to pull the tongue up. I think this may be more out of habit than necessity, though; the tongue on the Ultraventure 2.0 has full gusseting. This means it is attached at both sides of the shoe which stops debris from getting in down the side of the tongue, or the fabric slipping or moving in the shoe. This makes it feel comfy as it wraps around the foot.
The Topo Ultraventure 2.0 is currently my ultra shoe. I’m going to wear them for my next 100km race and I feel confident I won't have to worry about my feet or my shoes on the day.
