Heel-toe drop: 3mm
Combining the lightness of a running shoe with the rugged durability of a trail shoe, the Terraventure 2 features a 2-density injected EVA midsole on a rugged Vibram® outsole. The flat lugs provide sticky traction and a smooth transition onto paved surfaces, great for trails up concrete steps then on to rocky trails.
Deeper, more generously spaced lugs also improve underfoot traction in mud and slush and a flexible forefoot rock plate adds protection against rocks and roots.
With a fully gusseted tongue, the durable mesh and PU printed upper now features drainage ports for water release and quicker drying.
The shoe has a Vibram outsole, which means even stickier grip and better durability, and a more pronounced lug pattern translates to better grip in sloppy conditions.
A 5mm anti-microbial Ortholite® footbed resists compression set and odor and the uniquely fitted gaiter attachment makes it compatible with our stretch nylon Topo gaiter (optional and sold separately).
"The traction is awesome. I was able to ascend and descend hills that typically would have slowed me down because the grip provided me with that much confidence. As for the durability, I have 80 miles on them in some pretty rough conditions. Every time I clean them they look as good as new with no visible signs of wear or breakdown."

"People rained praise on the Topo Athletic Terraventure 2. This trail companion worked well for them. They welcomed its spacious toe box, its grip-ready outsole unit, the confident performance on rocky and soft surfaces, and the accommodating sizing schemes. It’s apparently a step up from its predecessor...shoe enthusiasts flock to this product for their off-road adventures." RunRepeat, 2019
"The Terraventure 2 is an excellent trail shoe. It serves up a well-balanced buffet of stability, rock protection, and ground feel. Traction from the Vibram XS Trek outsole is outstanding. The refined upper is clean and functional, and provides excellent foot retention, comfort and breathability. The overall shape of the shoe, in common with Topo’s other shoes, feels natural, following the anatomic form and leaving room for toe splay." RoadtrailRUN, 2018
