TOPO Fli-Lyte Running Shoe Review

TOPO Fly-Lite is a lightweight show with minimal heel-to-toe drop.

It features a wide toebox, flexible sole, with moderate cushioning.

  • Very flexible sole
  • Wide toebox, allows natural toe splay
  • Minimal drop from heel to toe give natural ride that doesn’t interfere with natural mechanics
