Topo Athletic Ultrafly 3 Initial Run Impressions Review and Shoe Details

Article by Sam Winebaum

Topo Athletic Ultrafly 3 ($130)

I take a first run in the Ultrafly 3 in spring weather in Park City, UT with snow covered mountains all around and share shoe details and first run impressions. The Ultrafly gets an all new softer Zip Foam midsole with a slightly denser medial insert in the mix.
It loses about 0.8 oz or 22 grams to 9.6 oz /272 g men’s US9. It has a 28mm heel 23mm forefoot stack so a 5mm drop.$130. Available May 2020

Hi Sam-question for you & the other reviewers: overall, do you enjoy the fabric uppers that are becoming much more prevalent? Do you find them more/less breathable than other shoe upper materials? How do you feel they do with water absorption?

Sam Winebaum said...

Hi Jesse,
The latest 2020 engineered mesh uppers tend to be thinner and with more ventilation designed in than even last year's, without compromising support. Thinner can also mean less moisture absorbed. The Topo is neat as it has no bootie tongue, something that in some cases can lead to a warmer shoe. While it has not been that warm yet thinner, more ventilated over the toes usually translates to more breathable.

I'm just getting back into running after having 2 plates and 10 screws put in my left foot to stabilize the lisfranc tendon. I'm running 2 miles a few times a week at an 11 minute pace, weigh 150lbs and I'm 5' 9". I'm wearing Topo Ultraventure and Asics Nimbus 21 - they seem to work ok but feel heavy or plodding. I have flat feet, narrow heel, and need a wide toe box as they really swell by the end of the day. With the flat feet, shoes with arch support chafe. My right foot overpronates more than the left, but there is no pain or issues associated with it. What are some shoes that you suggest I try? Thanks!
