Topo has burst onto the zero-drop scene with an interesting split-toe design intended for use in functional fitness applications. We put the RX model to the test and see just how they perform as an all-purpose trainer.
Building on previous designs this shoe features upgraded Vibram sole construction and a lighter overall feel than its predecessor. A great choice as a cross trainer, but the MX20v2 might not have what it takes to survive the repeated abuses of CrossFit.
