As the second version of Topo Athletic's most cushioned road running shoe to date, the Phantom 2 features their signature roomy toe box with a thick layer of Zipfoam for unmatched impact protection. This proprietary Zipfoam midsole provides lightweight cushioning that has more rebound than traditional EVA so you can extend your mileage with less impact on your joints.
Meanwhile, the engineered mesh upper secures the foot in place with breathable comfort, and strategically placed rubber provides grip and durability where needed. The Phantom 2 features fewer overlays on the upper, providing much more breathability than its predecessor.
Those that like maximum cushioning but still want natural toe-splay will love Topo Athletic's Phantom 2. You're not going to win any races in this shoe, but it's a perfect choice for those long-distance days, or days when you just want to have that extra bit of cushioning.
