Topo Athletic: a new star is born
We now have shoes from Topo Athletic in our range of products. That is a relatively new shoe brand but in its home market, the USA, it has already gotten excellent feedback and received many awards. Topo stands for Tony Post, a running shoe expert with 40 years of experience as an athlete and 30 years of working in the running shoe business.
Tony Post - founder of Topo Athletic
Already during his career as a runner he was very interested in running shoe concepts and for many years he worked for companies like Rockport and Vibram (11 years as their CEO). Many shoe brands have profited from Post's ideas and it was also him who pushed the well known Vibram FiveFingers range.
With TOPO ATHLETIC Tony fulfilled himself the dream of a lifetime, to run his own business an create his own range of running shoes. He can now implement decades of experience. One focus is a low drop of 0, 3 or 5 mm and the second focus is a wide toe box. It helps and supports a natural foot movement. A nearly seamless design and high quality, light materials mean that the Topo shoes still look fairly narrow.
Especially the high quality, the superior comfort and the perfect mid foot and heel fit have convinced us. Also, as much as we love our Altras, often we get the feedback that the 0 mm drop is limiting. With the Topo shoes in our range you now have an very interesting alternative if you like a wide toe box shoe.
