Product Summary

If you’re looking for a shoe that was made for long runs, daily training, and more, consider the Phantom 2 from Topo Athletic. This is the second version of this particular shoe and is designed specifically for road running.

The mesh upper on these running shoes is made with 30% recycled materials, so users can feel good about reducing their carbon footprint. It is also breathable, so runners can stay cool and comfortable, especially during those longer runs. The updated midsole has added foam for a softer feel on the underfoot.

The thermoplastic polyurethane (TPU) heel is made to keep the foot secure, but some users complain the shoe slides while they are running. While this shoe is mostly well-received, some individuals complain the shoe doesn’t fit as well as others and that the heel wears down quickly.
