"I think you answered your own question. Not sure when your 50k is, but I would HIGHLY suggest you stick with what feels good and build your long run miles in those TOPO's.  As soon as you start adding stability and higher platforms and…"

"Hi Eric, I would love to hear your opinion regarding a conversation I was having with someone regarding this shoe.  She recommended I use something different for an upcoming 50k (my first 50k).  I have used this shoe for races/training…"

"That is great to know. I might need to try them. I am hooked on Salomon because of how lite they are and how great they fit. I hope to be doing more shoe reviews in 2019, so maybe a good time to try TOPO. Thanks for the report."

"Hey Eric, Happy New Year and thanks for the response.  I got the shoes and really do like them.  I have done a couple of trail races in them, one in somewhat wet conditions and felt really stable.    One thing that I notice in…"

Eric Orton replied to Markham Yonkers's discussion Shoe Question
"Hi Markham, Great post and glad you are liking the TOPO. In my experience there is not really much difference between zero drop and 3mm.  I use mostly a 4mm drop, and depending on the shoe, this can feel more zero drop and some high platform…"

Shoe Question

"Consistency and frequency is the key, so even 2 or 3, 20 min sessions on your zero runner throughout the day could go a long way."

"Thanks for the reply!  I thought I was being creative but hadn't thought about running to meet the rest of the family somewhere.  Thats a great idea.  Being able to squeeze in an additional run here or there is huge even if…"

Training Advice

Hi Eric and Everyone, I am currently training for a series of Ultra Halfs this year and next.  My 6th race will be at the end of this month and I am hoping to progress to a 30k in November and a 50k next April.  I have incorporated the leg/foot strengthening exercises from The Cool Impossible a couple of months ago and just finished transitioning to zero drop shoes.  I am a stay at home dad with 3 kids so getting out for runs doesn't happen as much as I would like and when I do get out (2-3…See More
