Each year, Women's Running tests hundreds of products to come up with a list of the very best running shoes of the season. Testing design, fit and performance and the winner of the award for 2016 is the Topo MT-2 trail runner.
Topo’s designer Tony Post helped launch the Vibram Fivefinger shoes and he based Topo trainers around three core principals: shape, platform, and weight.
The Topo MT-2 Trail Running Shoes provide a lighter, low profile platform. Topo increased the flexibility making it easier and more comfortable to run on uneven terrain.
Women’s Running said: "Our testers liked kicking it up on the trail in these sleek-looking runners with responsive midsole cushioning and a trail-hugging, multi-directional tread. A generous, tootsie-protecting bumper on the anatomically correct toe box (read: wider) and a medium-firm heel cup provide protection in rocky conditions. The only tester complaint was from a runner who wanted to wear them all day - wait, is that a bad thing?"
