Topo Athletic Ultrafly Awarded "Best Debut" in Runner's World Fall 2016 Road Shoe Guide

NEWTON, MA--(Marketwired - Jul 25, 2016) - Runner's World honored Topo Athletic with the "Best Debut" award for the Ultrafly, the brand's latest road shoe offering more cushioning and light support. The award and review appear in Runner's World's Fall Shoe Guide, available on newsstands Aug. 2. This recognition swiftly follows Topo Athletic's MT-2 being named the "Best Buy" in the Spring Trail Shoe Guide, featured in the April 2016 issue.

The "Best Debut" title is bestowed upon the industry's top new road running shoe exhibiting excellence in design, fit and ride.

The editors at Runner's World have been fans of Topo since its 2013 launch and credit Founder and CEO Tony Post with knowing how to "build a sneaker that fits like a slipper." The Ultrafly "fits that mold" and "most runners will find that they can transition to the shoe quickly."

Senior Editor Meghan Kita specifically shared this feedback: "I like the toebox that's actually shaped like my foot. My toes have plenty of space, while the rest of my foot feels snug. And there is decent cushioning, but not a comical amount. This is a good shoe for someone who finds Hokas to be a little bit too much, but Altras to be a little bit too little."

"The Ultrafly was an exciting launch for us," explains Post. "This is the first time we've released a shoe that offers light guidance while preserving our signature natural fit and ride. Knowing this unique combination was recognized and appreciated by the testers and editors at Runner's World is an honor and a proud moment for Topo."

The Ultrafly delivers the most cushioning in Topo Athletic's road running shoe collection. It features strategically placed, printed overlays that keep the inside of the shoe virtually seamless. A molded foam heel secures the foot over a 28/23mm, 5mm drop platform, while the 3-piece EVA midsole provides cushioning, light guidance and responsive feedback through the gait cycle. MSRP: $120.
