Topo Athletic is a new brand that uses ergonomic design, engineered around 3 core product principals that help amplify and enhance natural movement:
- Shape – Topo uses an anatomical last shape, fitting secure thru the waist and heel, yet roomy in the toes so they spread and splay naturally better for balance, agility and comfort.
- Platform – 0 to 3mm of heel to toe drop, creating a stable and neutral foundation underfoot that encourages the foot and body to move naturally. Thicker than minimal shoes, but offering more feedback, feel, and flexibility than traditional athletic footwear platforms. Stack heights ranging from 12 to 22 mm.
- Weight – Topo does a lot of innovative things to take out the weight, without sacrificing durability or performance. All of the shoes weigh between 5-9 ounces.
