Topo Athletic Ultraventure Pro: tough “rocky” shoe

The Ultraventure Pro iteration from the Topo Athletic trail series was designed as a counterpart to the long-distance Ultraventure runner. The Pro comes with a few tweaks that make it more appropriate for running and thru-hiking on technical trails and rocky mountain paths.

Here is what makes the Pro the tougher one:

  • firmer cushioning
  • added rock plate
  • more rugged built
  • more resistant to rain

The shoe is NOT recommended for any road activity due to its stiffness. Distances over 50K may come at the price of being beaten up.
