Topo Athletic MT-2 Trail Running Shoe - Men's

Anatomical and Low Drop.

If the thought of trail running steep trails gets your knees aching, look no further than the low-drop and cushioned Topo Athletic Men's MT-2 Trail Running Shoe. Designed as a comfort-forward alternative to the zero-drop options, the MT-2 features a 3mm drop and wide platform, allowing your foot to splay and move naturally rather than restricting it to a narrow constitution. 

Additionally, much like previous editions, the MT-3 is equipped with a breathable mesh upper that keeps your feet from soaking in perspiration when you're running in hot summer weather. Mid-foot overlays add support for conquering steep goat paths in the mountains and rugged coastal headlands. The gusseted tongue keeps small stones and trail debris from poking your feet with every stride. Plus, the 4.5mm rubber sole provides tenacious traction and mud-shedding performance with its multi-directional lugs. And, not to mention, for this style, Topo Athletic recommends that you go up a half size from your street shoe size.

Unlike any other

    The MT2 is a unique shoe, but in a good way. As a point of reference, I’m coming off of several years of burning up an annual pair of Mountain Masochists. This shoe is obviously lighter, but fantastically so. Originally skeptical of the 3mm drop, I can say these are the lightest, least fatiguing shoes I’ve yet worn. The toe box actually made them feel larger, but they snug up well at mid-foot and heel, and they are cushy right out of the box.
